Fodor's Expert Review Executive Hotel Vintage Court

650 Bush St., San Francisco, California 94108, United States See on Map

Catering to the business crowd, these Napa Valley–inspired rooms, just two blocks from Union Square, are named after California wineries. Built in 1911 with modern interiors, the hotel aims to offer a dash of comfort in the heart of the buzzing shopping district.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Wi-Fi is functionable but on the slow side.


Rooms feature large writing desks and dark-wood Venetian blinds; some have sunny window seats. Suites include small kitchens, making them ideal for longer stays. The hotel has air conditioning, but rooms can feel stuffy, especially those facing the alley.

Newly remodeled bathrooms offer granite counters, taupe-tiled back splashes, and showers. Request a bathtub if that's your pleasure as only some rooms offer them. Pharmacopia toiletries add to the allure.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Fodorites complain of small bathrooms.


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.


The hotel's onsite restaurant, Bao Down, serves Filipino-inspired Asian fusion cuisine for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Expect Asian spiced meats filling tacos, and hearty bao appetizers. For picky eaters, they also serve a mean burger and fries.


The hotel offers a complimentary wine reception each night in the lobby that showcases the staff's knowledge of local wines. Bao Down serves cocktails, beer, and wine.


Getting Around

The hotel offers pricey valet parking. Walkers can take advantage of the proximity to nearby attractions like Union Square, Nob Hill, Chinatown, North Beach, the SFMOMA, and more. Hop on a Muni train or cable car (both of which stop within a couple blocks). To access the Oakland or San Francisco airports, take a BART train (7-minute walk).


Line up for outstanding ramen bowls and crunchy tempura at Katana Ya (8-minute walk). For a posh meal of lobster pot pie, saunter down to the Financial District to experience Michael Mina's (15-minute walk).


For epic city views paired with a strong martini, head to the Top of the Mark (6-minute walk). The low-key Douglas Room (12-minute walk) offers a casual place for a pint, some snacks (the shishito peppers are outstanding) or a Prince-themed cocktail.


A generous wine happy hour, an onsite restaurant, and a sophisticated allure makes this a fine choice for business travelers or those traveling with pets.
