4km from Wok-in CafeteriaHotel Via defines the modern “boutique hotel” experience in San Francisco. The booking process on-line was efficient and intuitive. When I had questions about my accommodations, I was able to reach a live person on the phone at the hotel lobby desk within seconds of calling. Loading and unloading were simple, as the main entrance is located on a side street off the Embarcadero. Generally speaking, the space is able to create a warm feel with a modern design and color scheme. The hotel staff are universally friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. The rooms are super clean, exceptionally quiet, and have all the modern amenities. The rooftop bar, Rooftop at Via, with sweeping views of downtown San Francisco, San Francisco Bay, and Oracle Park (home of the San Francisco Giants), is spectacular. The gym is spacious and functional. Bar Via offers a relaxed atmosphere and plenty of food and drink offerings. The location offers easy access to many of San Francisco’s most popular sights and destinations. I will surely be back and recommend Hotel Via to anybody!
