The 116-room Hotel Zetta is one of the Viceroy Hotel Group's collection of "urban retreats" which bring resort-style relaxation to city hotels. Hotel Zetta is a unique, super cool and chic urban hotel, accommodated in an stylish neo-classical building. The innovative architecture and creative, sustainable conveniences appeal to the gadgety among us while it's smart and sleek combination of old and new, and even futuristic style attracts travelers from all walks of life. It particularly suits couples and families looking for a fun, edgy and contrasting hotel right in the center of all the hustle and bustle of San Francisco.

Sitting right on the border of San Francisco's famously hip cultural communities of fashion, tech, food and music, the bar - S&R (Salvage and Rescue) Lounge in the lobby of the hotel attracts many locals and visitors alike for a sociable drink in the evenings, and is frequently buzzing with high-speed chatter between all. The lobby area is more of a play area than a bar, with shuffleboard, ping pong, giant Jenga, a pool table and board games that attract adults and children alike.

With the celebrated Cavalier Restaurant just on the other side of the hotel and celebrated restaurateurs Anna Weinberg and James Nicholas in charge and serving up British pub classics with a twist such as fish and chips and bangers and mash, you can be sure to have a fantastic drinking and dining experience wherever you choose to eat.


There are 116 guestrooms including one suite. Superior guest rooms star from 250 sq. ft and feature high-speed internet access, Illy espresso machines, Jawbone Big JamBox and a G-link station for mobile devices and wireless streaming onto smart TVs. A large butcher-block desk can be used while seated or standing and provides ample space for working, socialising or competing over a lo-tech board game.

Dark-stained hardwood floors contrast stylishly with a bright print rug and white bed linens, accented by a large portrait of a woman made from a collage of old computer floppy disks and statement light features.


Hotel Zetta welcomes children of all ages but is best suited to families with older children or teenagers. There are eight inter-connecting rooms and roll-away's are permitted in deluxe rooms.


The Cavalier, adjacent to Hotel Zetta's lobby serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and is a hot spot for San Francisco locals.

S+R Lounge (Salvage and Rescue) is a really cool bar and lounge with a full menu and a great cocktail list - on the ground floor lies the bar and plenty tables and upstairs is the public area which features sofas, TVs, video games, a red phone booth and other fun things to keep you busy while enjoying a quick bite and drink.


San Francisco, the West Coast’s unpretentious culture capital offers world-class restaurants, including 17 Michelin-starred eateries within city limits, as well as museums and shopping. San Francisco is incredibly easy to navigate by foot, bicycle, bus, trolley or taxi. It’s also a gateway to the nearby wine country of the Napa Valley.

In downtown San Francisco you can browse art galleries, visit bustling Chinatown, go to the Jazz quarter, visit the Academy of Sciences for the planetarium and aquarium, get a handle on the geography by climbing one of the city’s famed hills or take the cable car, go shopping in the fashion epi-center Union Square, board a bay cruise at Fisherman’s Wharf to take it all in from the water or book ahead to visit Alcatraz Island, take a stroll across the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and lunch in charming Sausalito.

When to go

San Francisco is a year-round destination but has a cool maritime climate. In the summer, the city’s famous fog rolls in mornings and evenings, creating a misty chill in the air. Spring sees the end of the rainy season, and the city’s pretty-in-pink cherry blossom trees dot the landscape. In Fall Indian Summer comes to San Francisco, bringing warm, dry days with plenty of sunshine. The very best time of year is August to October when temperatures are at their highest and days are often sunny.
