We stayed for 4 nights and we were very pleased with the hotel. The rooms are fairly small but clean and has been recently decorated with a boutique feel to it. The location is just a few blocks from union square where you can get all the public transport (I'd suggest a muni pass if you are travelling around). Lots...

In terms of location, this hotel is in a very quiet location but still within walking distance to union square. I really prefer NOT to stay in union square because of the craziness of the area. And what do you really get to see in union square? Macy’s, bloomies, saks, the big stores. So unless your goal is to do...

The hotel was in a good location for me, close to financial district. Don't expect any in house restaurants or bars. The hotel was old but clean and the staff was very helpful with directions, dining suggestions and activities to do. The room was quiet so I slept well and the beds were comfortable. It was a very "dated" hotel.

The hotel lobby is very nice. AND the location is easy to get around. Morning staff are very friendly Greg and Genevie. But the afternoon shift are not helpful. And the manager is not around when the staff needs him/her which is not good.The room itself is very comfortable.The decor is very hippy. The price is reasonable. But the parking...

I was looking to spend one night in San Francisco and started looking for hotels. Hotel Vertigo stood out because it seems like a great value for the area of SF that it is in. When I got there, I was actually a little surprised. The building looked old but the inside was definitely redone. As most other reviewers pointed...

We booked the hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews and recommendation from a travel agent friend of ours. Great location in Sutter Street, very funky lobby area, free wifi, and room decor were all great! Our room was very quiet - at the back of the building - however it didn't have fantastic natural light which I normally crave but...

Super cool little boutique hotel in the theme of Hitchcock's movie Vertigo. The decor is amazing, all oranges and whites, the location is very walkable to Union Square, professional staff, comfortable beds, coffee in the morning. Best of all, VERY reasonable prices. Highly recommend!

Hotel Vertigo is a hip dog-friendly hotel located at Nob Hill, near SF's famous Chinatown area. The hotel was very thoughtful and arranged our room away from the elevator, down the hallway so that my dog would not be stressed at the hallway foot traffic & noise. The room itself is a good size and very comfortable & clean. The...

Lovely hotel in very good area to get around. Gregory, and the rest of the staff, were very friendly and helpful. They gave us all the advice we needed and the best ways to get around. The breakfast box was also ideal and had plenty for everyone inc free tea/coffee in reception area.
