Hotel Vitale

8 Mission St., San Francisco, California, 94105, USA

"Luxury, naturally," the theme of this eight-story, terraced bay-front hotel, is apparent in every thoughtful detail: little vases of lavender mounted outside each handsome room; limestone-lined baths; the penthouse-level day spa with soaking tubs set in a rooftop bamboo forest. Guests love being across the street from the Ferry Building. Wi-Fi and LCD flat-screen TVs keep businesspeople in the loop, and spacious family studios have a sofa bed or two curtained off from the main sleeping area. As one Fodorite puts it, the hotel is "modern and sleek but very comfortable and inviting." So is the restaurant Americano, whose outdoor terrace is packed with hip jet-setters.
