Fodor's Review

With a playful lobby lounge accented in splashes of acid yellow, a fresh new eatery from the ladies of Marlowe, and slick tech-friendly rooms, Hotel Zetta has boldly announced itself on the hotel scene. The location is also a pro, adjacent to the always-hopping Westfield San Francisco Shopping Centre—tenants include Bloomingdale's, a fantastic food court, and Nordstrom—and close to many of the museums, restaurants, and attractions south of Market Street. The eight-story

hotel's stately 1913 neoclassical facade gives way to a lively lobby with reclaimed wooden floors, chrome sculptures, and an edgy take on The Price is Right's Plinko game. The fun continues in a playroom featuring a pool table and shuffleboard, and the S&R Lounge, known for its retro bar snacks and cosmic cocktails. With contrasting touches that are spare and homey, rooms boast Illy espresso machines, flat-screen TVs that can connect to your device via G-Link Obsess docking stations, oversized architecture desks, and repurposed rugs salvaged from alround the globe. Large showers with Neil George bath products and dual-paned windows add to the level of comfort. The Cavalier restaurant and Marianne's bar holds court on the far side of the lobby, offering London-style brasserie cuisine and techie-inspired cocktails.
