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
With 29 years of experience under his belt, chef Jan Birnbaum opened Epic Roasthouse in 2008 along with co-owner and acclaimed restaurant architect Pat Kuleto.
Things to do in Embarcadero
Cable cars have competition for Most Endearing Public Transit. These early-20th-century streetcars trundle along the Embarcadero. You might glimpse an orange Milanese number or the olive green “streetcar named desire” from New Orleans.
