"First time in San Fran"

This was our first time in San Fran and we decided to go with a hotel with an established brand that we were familiar with even though the ratings on trip advisor was not great. While we didn't have any issues with the hotel our experience was just mediocre. The rooms were just ok and the hotel was very busy. Based on other hotels reviewed I was sorry that we didn't stay at one of the smaller boutique hotels that had a higher rating based on travel sites. I think one of those other hotels would have catered better to our needs as tourists who wanted to explore the city. In any event the W was still a pleasant experience.

"Another great stay, upgraded to Fabulous Room"

I had a one night stay for business in SF and chose the W since I hadn't been there in a while (having just stayed 3 nights at the St. Regis a few weeks ago). Being SPG Plat75, I was upgraded from my reserved Wonderful Room to a Fabulous (corner) Room. The Fabulous Room was airy and light, with tons of windows and natural light--and shutters that closed very easily and largely blacked out the room for sleeping. The room was spacious and the bath was, too. All in all, for a regular sized room, I was very pleased. Service was great. There was a bit of a wait at check-in, but a porter offered everyone in line some free water. Once I checked in and was given my upgrade, the attendant also said I could use my Plat breakfast benefit and use it towards room service--and gave me a cert to guarantee that. When I went out for my meeting, they lent me an umbrella. Valets had my rental car ready to go within 10 minutes of calling both times I needed it. The only error was my room service breakfast arrived cold, but they replaced it and then com'd the whole thing. Room service was fantastic--aside from the breakfast order which arrived cold (and then was quickly replaced and comp'd). I ended up ordering room service lunch (shortly after my 2 pm arrival), dinner (at about 11 pm after meeting friends for drinks in the bar), and breakfast the next morning. It came within 20 min each time, and the only error was the cold breakfast item--otherwise it was flawless. I met some friends and colleagues in the bar downstairs after my business meeting, and table service was fantastic. Drinks were good, and it was a great atmosphere. All in all, I was very pleased. There is some construction going on next door to the W--not sure for what, or if the hotel is expanding/being renovated--which made driving in/out a bit tight, but otherwise my one night stay was very nice. Considering the St. Regis is just a block away, I would happily choose either the St. Regis or W depending on the rate and my chances for an upgrade. I prefer being in SoMa, and so both properties easily meet my needs and do it with style. I'm curious to check out the Westin Market Street also within a block, but the W totally reminded me why I love this property. My room probably had been refreshed, since it felt very new and cool. So I can't comment on the other comments, probably from lower category rooms that haven't been renovated/refreshed yet. But for an SPG Plat, this hotel is fantastic.

"Not what I expect from W hotels."

I have stayed in many W Hotel chains around the world as I truly believe this is an amazing chain and highly recommend the professionalism and cleanliness W hotels withhold. It may have just been the day we arrived that set a horrid start to our San Francisco stay. The Manager was away, Concierge was helping the Porters who were obviously outnumbered by bags and clients checking in, the Bellman was no where to be seen and clients who were trying to check in were disrupted by the loud, frustrated couple trying to check out. The man at the bar was very helpful and pretty much stepped in as Concierge for a brief period as clients were asking him questions. After being annoyed by this start we walked into our Wonderful King room to find a room with a bed and an ensuite that looked like the size of my study and powder room. What happened to the high standard' I don't want to be the one negative comment that turns you off this hotel however, the day we arrived was not your best W San Francisco and I would expect better from a W hotel.

"Great place for a conference or meeting"

the staff was very pleasant and it is just across from the Moscone Center. The setting was perfect for a meeting on the first floor or on the 2nd floor. We had a large gathering which allowed us to use the balcony that over looked the city streets. the staff was accomadating and we had a great event for clearslide.

"car service"

Just wanted to comment how helpful Paul at the hotel was with everything. Very knowledgeable, informative, and plenty of drive. A great asset for your team and I will definitely be returning after having such a great experience.
