Verified Reviews of Hotel Vertigo

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Needs some updating."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Good location, but hotel feels dated. As with many older hotels, you can hear your neighbor talking. Not the experience you'd expect for the price paid.

Property Description

Hotel Vertigo is a modern twist on a familiar favorite - a landmark redux. The hotel is the site of the Empire Hotel made famous in arguably Alfred Hitchcock's best work, Vertigo. It's ideally nestled in a charming lower Nob Hill pocket of San Francisco, just slightly off the beaten path of bustling Union Square. Hotel Vertigo is at the nexus of a lively wheel of energy with its spokes outstretched to Union Square, the theater district, Convention Center, Market Street, Westfield Center, City Hall, the Opera House, and Nob Hill. There's a sense of movement and excitement all around inviting guests to jump in and get caught up in the whirl.
