Only problem was a negligible item was taken from my car. Luckily, it is only funny to me. It was a vodka bottle full of water. Other than that, the service was excellent. Staff was able to provide tampons upon request after we got a surprise. Very happy we didn't have to go out again so late.

The only negative I encountered at the Vitale was that upon arrival, there was no record of my reservation, which I had booked--AND PAID--via a Web partner called AMOMA. You must imagine that after 12 hours of traveling and finally arriving at the desk, it is a colossal disappointment to be told there is no reservation. Fortunately, the hotel could accommodate me, and I enjoyed my stay immensely.

The hotel is smartly appointed and very well located, with immediate access to the Ferry Terminal and BART. The food and service at Americano are excellent. The draft beer is overpriced but delicious.

I must say that the apparent surge-pricing rates activated for the Dreamforce conference were patently absurd--I would never have stayed *anywhere* at those rates on my own nickel. However, the published rates for non-peak times appear to offer excellent value.

The location is fantastic and upon arrival I was greeted pleasantly by the staff. The lobby is very welcoming, heading up to the third floor to find my room I found the carpet was a bit worn and dated in areas. Entering my room I found it to be nice, but less than I hoped for the price of the room. The bathroom could definitely use some updating with tile and tub looking old.

Excellent smaller hotel with great location, Only drawback is that at cocktail hour when it attracts a large and noisy almost raucous crowd which overpowers the bar and spills into the dining area. Rooms are very well appointed and the taste level throughout the hotel is impeccable

Room Tip: View roomsare significantly more expensive

There was no water pressure in the shower. If this is a resolved, I would rate my stay as 5 stars. Otherwise my stay was relaxing. Would recommend this hotel, but be warned you may have to take a long shower just to get the shampoo out of your hair.
