A night's stay at the Vitale has you marveling at the softness of the comfortable bed, the constant light scent of lavender, and the views over the Embarcadero.
The design and structure of this hotel are reminiscent of classic San Francisco Victorians but with minimal, natural, and modern elements. Floor-to-ceiling bay windows are squared and covered in light drapes, and the rooms' color schemes are calming and earthy.
From the Bay Lights Suites facing east, you can spend a night gazing at the city's largest art installation—the lights on the Bay Bridge. World-renowned artist Leo Villareal fixed thousands of LEDs to the suspension cables on the western span of the bridge, resulting in a glowing ebb-and-flow that will shine through March 2015. Make sure to spend a night in the Hotel Vitale before the lights are gone.
