Embarcadero Travel Guide

Hotels in Embarcadero

Location, location, location…the 199-room Vitale has it in spades. Not only is the hotel right on the Embarcadero—three minutes’ walk from the Ferry Building and facing the bay—but it sits all alone on its own block.

Restaurants in Embarcadero

They say the third time’s the charm, and so it is for the third branch of this top-notch local temple to neo-Vietnamese cuisine.

Things to do in Embarcadero

Climb aboard the historic ships docked at the Hyde Street Pier, such as the three-masted Balclutha (1886) and the schooner Alma (1891). Keep walking west and the crowds fall away as you reach the Art Deco Bathhouse Building, with its collection of ship models.
