Hotel Vitale

Built from the ground up in 2005, the five-story Vitale overlooks the city's magnificent eastern waterfront and the Bay Bridge's dazzling light display. The aesthetic is hip and sexy, a play on midcentury modern design, with swoop-back chairs and low-slung sofas in a lobby of limestone and wood. Rooms are styled in soothing shades of periwinkle and gray, with low-slung platform beds dressed with custom high-thread-count Italian linens. Bedside tables are like light-up dioramas: Beneath their glass tops, a layer of inset stones glows when you turn on the light inside the cabinet. The least-expensive rooms face an interior courtyard—whisper-quiet for their lack of street noise, they're ideal if you're here for work. But if you're here for fun, definitely book a bay-view room. Or splurge on a top-end "circular suite," with walls of windows and gadgets like remote-controlled blinds. The small rooftop spa offers massages, facials and two rooftop soaking tubs for aromatherapy bathing rituals. Downstairs, the ever-happening bar Americano gets overrun at cocktail hour with twentysomethings on the make; if you're noise-sensitive, book an upper floor.
