Boutique at its best | Hotel Zetta | | San Francisco, USA


Wanderlust Chronicles review of the Hotel Zetta in San Francisco.

Housed in a stunning neoclassic building in the heart of the vibrant SoMa district of San Francisco, Hotel Zetta provides a refreshing twist on the boutique hotel tag that hoteliers are currently throwing around. In every essence of the word boutique, Hotel Zetta ticks all the boxes, and then adds some for good measure. For instance, the tech-savvy additions in the hotel are its number one draw card, a feature that boutique hotels have not yet tapped into. But the Hotel Zetta is so much more than a comfortable hotel at the forefront of the boutique crowd, it is also a home away from home. From the minute you enter the compact but extremely purposeful lobby, you are greeted with casual and friendly faces ready to accommodate your every need. And if the staff isn’t up to the challenge, then Alice surely is! Alice is a newly integrated hotel application, which can be cleverly installed on your mobile device prior to or during your stay. Alice allows you to control every service feature of your stay, including, but not limited to, your check-in, servicing times, and extra add-ons, all with a tap on your phone. After a smooth check-in, you will be greeted with an inviting and warm room as your home for the next few days, or week, if you are that lucky, with enough Californian sunshine streaming through your blinds to save you from taking that Vitamin D tablet for the day. Small touches in the room, such as, innovative floppy disk inspired art pieces, an espresso machine, numerous power points, personal speakers, and complimentary in-room Wi-Fi ensure that your every technology need is catered for.
But our personal recommendation is to skip the work that the computer holds for you, and settle yourself into one of the most comfortable and plush hotel beds you will ever find, and reward yourself like you deserve.
If you live by the motto, “sleep when you’re dead”, then Hotel Zetta also has you covered. With an unbeatable location in the heart of SoMa, connected to the Westfield Shopping Mall, and at the doorstep of the famous San Francisco public transport system, Hotel Zetta makes exploring the city a breeze, and affordable too. Overall, Hotel Zetta was truly a favourite on our recent USA trip and we can’t wait to experience it all over again, and hope that you get to stay there too!
