I have not been out to the San Francisco area in quite a few years. It is always comforting to return to a city that you like. Also, as you begin to drive around, everything starts to look familiar again.
We stayed for only one night but it was a very good night. We stayed at the Hotel Vitale which was recommended by a very good old friend.
The hotel is a cross between a W hotel and the Mercer Hotel in NYC. Simple, modern, not too expensive and in a good location. The hotel sits over the waterfront area. The Ferry building on the waterfront wasn’t there when I was there last time or at least it wasn’t renovated.
Very San Franciscan. Wine bars, cheese shops, olive oils to taste, organic foods to buy. On Saturday morning there is a flea market and open air farmer’s market.
So, if you are passing through San Francisco, check out the Hotel Vitale for a place to stay.
