Hotel Vitale

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 3, 2007

The Hotel Vitale is located near the waterfront, right across the street from the Ferry Building. We had a short, but comfortable stay on a layover from Mexico heading home.The staff are extremely professional, pleasant and polite. The night concierge was especially helpful in arranging our shuttle back to the airport early the following morning.

Unique Quality: The room was exactly what was depicted on their website, but there were .... um ..... slight issues with the bathroom. The door is a sliding door. It rests on top of the bathroom entrance, leaving a space of about 3/4 " not sealing the area like conventional door. Therefore, let's just say you better be very open to listening to bodily functions of your roomie. I was travelling with my husband, and there's just some things that should remain private between man and wife. Also, the bathroom has a huge walk-in shower with a clever hole cut out in the glass wall so you can reach in and adjust the temperature. However, if you are about 5'2" like me, your arm probably is not long enough and my husband had to run the shower hot for me before I got in. Not so clever after all.

There is odd use of space in the room -- an extra blanket and pillows are placed in a neat canvas bag in a corner, when there is a huge shelf in the closet, unused. Also, the hair dryer is tied in a little canvas bag hanging on a hook. Sort of tricky to get open when you are dripping wet and straight out of the shower. However, the Fresh lemon scented bath amenities are a nice change from the usual stuff, and of course I packed them away to take home to enjoy.

The room service food was superb, try the homemade chocolate chip cookies and organic milk or the brownie for dessert. Even on our late arrival that evening, it arrived within 20 minutes, fresh and very tasty.

Because of the bathroom issue, I would probably not return to the hotel, but the hotel is very nice and again, the staff couldn't do enough for us. We would return probably to the restaurant, where I hear the critics rate the food quite highly, and rightly so.

Directions: Right across the street from the Ferry Terminal Building
