"Typical W, Nothing Special"
I stayed at the W Hotel on business for one evening. The hotel has typical W decor--modern furniture and art, somewhat flashy. Like all W Hotels, the public areas (lobby and hallways) have that low twilight lighting that I find unappealing, together with incessant techno music (including inside the elevators) that is far from relaxing, particularly first thing in the morning. My room was adequate, but nothing special. The room safe did not work and had to be replaced. There were hairs on the duvet cover. Particularly irritating was that the room had only plantation shutters and a sheer curtain which left too much light into the room for sleeping. On a positive note, the hotel had an exceptionally nice gym for a hotel, with plenty of modern, well-maintained equipment that appeared new. The rooms also had no free wifi which I find unacceptable for an urban hotel catering to business travelers. I am not a fan of W Hotels in general and this one was fairly typical of their brand.
My second time and both for business. As far as W Hotels go, not my favorite. It is comfortable enough and has that W modernism and mysticism. Main problem was that temperature in the faucet was not capable of being regulated. Living Room bar is not bad. Food was getting worse as the days went on. Concierge is not only useless but also could not care less. When asked for restaurants recommendations, not only was she prissy about that but didn't bother to help obtaining any reservations. A phone call @4 in the morning to tell me that I have a package downstairs was also not necessary and could have waited until the morning. It is this hipster attitude that what makes this brand less than it could be.
"Perfect Bay Area Escape"
My wife and I booked a room at the W San Francisco for a much needed romantic escape. The hotel was exactly what we needed. Ideally located, we were able to walk to the Ferry building for morning coffee and breakfast before taking off to explore the city every day. We relied heavily on the hotel's excellent concierge service, W Insider, in order to make the best use of our time. In fact, we asked Sara H to do the impossible - we emailed her Saturday afternoon asking her to score us a dinner reservations at the exclusive restaurant Flour + Water for that evening. In a matter of minutes she was able to secure our table to the sold out restaurant and followed up with a personalized note to our room asking if there was anything else she might be able to do to make our stay perfect. You can't find service like that just anywhere. We'll certainly be back next time we're in town.
Our experience at the W was wonderful. Thanks to Henry and the staff. We received room upgrade upon check-in which was a pleasant suprise. All the staff were extremely pleasant, great coffee and breakfast, our concierge was very helpful and we loved the tapas restaurant suggestion along with all other local tips. Truly a wow experience.
I've been using this hotel for years for business. It's changed for the worse lately. Pros: excellent bar staff. Great elevators. Nice bathrooms. Cons: staff doesn't put more effort into their jobs more than a forever 21 associate would. Takes at least an hour for room service. No appreciation for loyalty. PAINT THE BATHROOM SEE-THROUGH DOORS. Hookers in the bar area all the time.
