The eco-friendly Hotel Vitale occupies an enviable position at the foot of the Embarcadero, the eastern waterfront of the Bay of San Francisco.

Will, Kate B and Alexandra are here to help give you the inside track.

The Vitale is an eco-inspired hotel where the main theme is that of vitality. This is showcased in all of the 200 rooms, which have limestone showers and noise machines echoing sounds of the ocean.

There is complimentary yoga and a Vitality Concierge to put guests in touch with 'wellness' experts, as well as a spa with three treatment rooms and penthouse-level private soaking tubs in a bamboo walled garden.

The Americano restaurant serves Italian-influenced Californian dishes, and spills out onto a terrace where the atmosphere comes alive.

Why we love it
