    Hotel Vertigo is one of my favorite hotels in San Francisco. That’s a fact. Just thinking about its cinematic history and the beautiful decor inside just gives me chills. One of the greatest filmmakers of all time, Alfred Hitchcock, filmed parts of the film of the same name here. Look down the stairway from the top floor and you’ll get a cool sense of vertigo yourself.

    The staff are really cool people. Like, really “cool” in the best sense. I had a nice conversation about San Francisco history with a guy with the hippest mustache I’ve ever seen.

    The rooms, a vibrant display of orange and white, combines loft aesthetics with minimalist sensibilities. The TVs are flat, the minibars look like cabinets and the coffeemakers are really espresso machines.

    Finally, there’s a large gym downstairs with a number of cardio machines and a huge contraption for lifting weights. For the rest of us who like to be lazy on vacation, hey, free Wi-Fi!

    Hotel Vertigo is a mix of elegant classic beauty and modern/ simplistic design. This boutique hotel has some great SF history and is close to one of my favorite neighborhoods, Polk Street Corridor, which boasts great nightlife, restaurants, and local flavor. Free Wi-Fi is available, and parking is $35/40 per night. The warm decor in the guestrooms and the clean design immediately calms and de-clutters your mind. If you’re not planning to make the trek uphill to the famous Grace Cathedral, they have a well-equipped fitness center. Each room has a flat screen tv, writing desk, coffee/tea maker, mini-fridge, and even an ipod dock. The staff members are friendly. This is a great boutique hotel option that is nestled among a quieter residential area, with easy access to downtown/Union Square. Complimentary newspapers are also available in the lobby.
