Hotel Zetta

Hotel Zetta

****

Straddling the line between trendy SoMa and the Union Square shopping district, San Francisco’s consciously hip Hotel Zetta is pure City by the Bay.

  • Kitted-out rooms

  • Lively lobby scene

  • Well-connected location

Also need to know:

The hotel does not have a spa, but they do have an arrangement for guests at the neighbouring Burke Williams spa, and can provide in-room spa treatments. In addition to a full gym, the Zetta also offers free yoga classes to guests on Saturday mornings.

Packing tips:

Your iPad, Kindle, smartphone, laptop… Indeed, all of your electronics, which connect to the G-Link dock and smart TV in each room, so you can have all the entertainment you’d have at home, for free.

Dress code:

T-shirt and jeans – sustainably and responsibly made by a trendy local brand like Everlane, and paired with either a tailored blazer or designer heels for a tech-giant-next-door look.

Dining information

Restaurant:

The third venture from the team behind two of San Francisco’s most acclaimed restaurants (Marlowe and Park Tavern), the trendy and lively Cavalier puts on old-world spin on one of the city’s most contemporary neighbourhoods. Anglo-inspired dishes like Welsh rarebit soufflé and steak and oyster pie are served between four elegant and atmospheric rooms – with names like the ‘Rail Car’ and ‘Wine Stables’ – and paired with classic British club cocktails and an extensive wine list. Additionally, the lobby’s S&R Lounge (which stands for ‘salvage and rescue’) serves basic breakfasts, Stumptown coffee and small plates and sandwiches every evening.

Top table:

The Cavalier has a room for every mood. We’re partial to the people-watching in the Blue Bar, the liveliest room, but, when it comes to romance, we’d go for the red-leather banquettes and Orient-Express-inspired train carriage accents in the Rail Car.

Last orders:

In the Cavalier, breakfast is served from 7 to 10:3am; lunch from 11:30am to 2pm; and dinner from 5:30 to 10pm on weekdays, 11pm Thursday to Saturday. In the S&R Lounge, breakfast is from 7 to 10:30am; it operates as a bar nightly from 4pm to 11pm.

Room service:

The full restaurant breakfast menu is available in your room from 6 to 10:30am; the restaurant dinner menu can be ordered to your room from 5 to 11pm.

Hotel bar:

In addition to the Cavalier’s room-length bar where well-mixed gin, whiskey and rum cocktails are the order of the day, the lobby S&R Lounge and its attached mezzanine Playroom are a popular watering hole for the trendy after-work crowd, as well as an all-day work spot for techies and freelancers. Pick your poison from a range of inventive cocktails, West Coast wines and craft beers, then nab a spot on a sofa or in the hanging chair. If you’re feeling social, challenge a new friend to a game of shuffleboard, pool, Connect Four – or any of the over 50 Nintendo WiiU games.
