Why Hotel Zelos?

Extremely Artistic… Art

hotel zelos artOk, so there are hotels sporting “art” all over the hotel, and then there are hotels sporting “ART.” What’s the difference? Art is your run of the mill generic (aka boring) landscape photo, vase of flowers, etc. ART is engaging, funky, confusing, sometimes aesthetically pleasing and sometimes not. Take a stroll around Hotel Zelos and you’ll discover animal print pillows, art deco pieces and even vintage portraits of stylish women from the roaring ‘20s.

To summarize, our decor is meant to inspire thoughts, emotions and create a funky ambiance. Every piece is chosen deliberately and we hope you enjoy pondering each piece the way we do.

We’ve Got a Dirty Habit

Perched five floors above the streets of San Francisco’s bustling SOMA district lies an intimate hideaway for those seeking an inventive and sociable drinking and dining atmosphere – Dirty Habit. Unlike most hotel restaurant and bars, Dirty Habit is frequented by locals. Primarily famous for our extensive craft cocktail menu (featuring an emphasis on rare brown spirits) and tapas style food menu, the Dirty Habit serves as a perfectly funky place to meet for drinks, have a bite to eat and enjoy the oasis in the midst of busy San Fran.

If we had to choose a favorite aspect of Dirty Habit, it would be the rooftop outdoor patio, featuring year round heaters and picturesque fountains. Oh, and the indoor dining room is outfitted in the dramatic film noir concept. Yes, it’s sexy.

Oddly Spacious Rooms

In a city where real estate is top dollar, guests are pleasantly surprised to discover Hotel Zelos’s extremely spacious rooms (by San Francisco standards). If you’ve visiting the city before, there’s a good chance you’ll have experienced staying in one of those closet sized hotel rooms. A traditional San Fran experience, but not always a comfortable one.

Our spacious rooms are part of our unique and quirky history. The hotel is in the historic Pacific Building, built around 1907, which was originally built as an office building. Office spaces no more, now we use those spacious office rooms as luxurious and cozy hotel rooms.

Daily New York Times

One cannot maintain one’s quirks without full knowledge of the quirks of the world. With your stay at Hotel Zelos, you will be treated to a daily complimentary newspaper, New York Times being an option. Keeping in real quirky, you can request to have your daily paper delivered to your room. Place the specs atop your nose and indulge in the happenings of the world. Coffee and/or tea will be served to further enhance the overall news reading experience.

We Have a Canine Club

You know those doh people who insist on bringing their dogs with them everywhere? Yes, that would be us. And it can be you as well. We love animals and we love that you love to travel with your furry friend. We have no restrictions on the size of the pet traveling with you – the bigger the better as far as we’re concerned. You can even have up to two dogs in one room.

It doesn’t stop there, if you let us know ahead of time you’ll be visiting with your pooch, we’ll provide a complimentary bed, water bowl, food and a treat or two.

There you have it – Hotel Zelos is filled with quirks from head to toe – but every single one is a luxurious quirk to enhance your stay. Whoever said one cannot be quirky and luxurious at the same didn’t know a thing.

Those five quirks are some of our favorites, but there will be plenty more to discover once you arrive. To suit the needs of our diverse guests, we’ve compiled an array of packages that will make your heart sing with joy, you can view them all right here.
