Two blocks from Union Square, this Napa Valley–inspired hotel consistently updates rooms, which are named after California wineries. Some have sunny window seats, and all have large writing desks and dark-wood venetian blinds. Newly refreshed bathrooms are small; some have tub-showers, while others have stall showers. The Wine Country theme extends to complimentary local vintages served nightly in front of a roaring fire in the chocolate-hued lobby, where long couches
encourage lingering. At press time, the hotel was installing a new dining establishment to replace the venerable Masa's which closed in 2013.

Wife and I stayed one night while attending an event April 2010. Room was large and comfortable. Excellent sleeping as we were off the street, but 6:30 AM the garbage was taken out!!! Quiet after that brief disruption. Excellent location for Chinatown, cable cars or Nob Hill excursions! Excellent small breakfast cafe half a block away on Powell.

This was a lovely boutique hotel that was an incredible value (my husband and I paid $60 on hotwire) located in the posh, and very safe, Nob Hill area close to such hotel giants as the Mark Hopkins and the Ritz, but with none of the stuffiness and attitude! The rooms were mid sized, the bathroom was a bit cramped, the toiletries were by the eco friendly, super pricey Aveda and the service was suberb. We had a rough flight out of Baltimore, arrived
at SFO in the wee hours and felt like something the cat dragged in...the conceirge who checked us is offered us complimentary wine as we filled out the paperwork as he gave us the low down on the city. One big detractor was the $30 daily parking but for the price you really cant say much. I really enjoyed the nightly wine tasting!

My trip to San Francisco began badly, arriving from the UK and checking into the most revolting hotel I have seen in many a long year of travel. Needless to say I cancelled my reservation quickly and tranferred to the Vintage Court. From thereonin, my stay was wonderful. This is a lovely hotel, with attentive, considerate and incredibly polite staff right in the heat of downtown SF. The rooms are not massive, but clean, bright, comfortable and all
you really need. In addition to its prime location, a hop skip and jump from Chinatown and Union Square, there is also a very pleasant bar nearby where you can smoke (yes, in California!!!). I'll definitely be going back and would heartily recommend the Vintage Court to anyone.
