"Great location, perfect for weekend visits to San Fran"
Location is excellent, I always recommend this place when friends and family come to visit out of town. Hotel is very zen and offers a modern vibe. There are plenty of restaurants around too that are walking distance.
"Our stay at the W "
My girlfriend and I had a wonderful stay at the W Hotel. The employees are more than happy to help you with whatever you need, including a complimentary drink! The hotel itself is very modern and very clean. Includes a great lounging area for friends, and a great restaurant. Our room was on the 30th floor and provided a wonderful view of the city. The room was clean, stocked with snacks, and a TV with many movies to choose from. Overall, we had a wonderful stay at the W Hotel.
"Good location, great staff... kind of a hipster hotel"
Not my favorite hotel in SF, but it was OK. The rooms are tired & not very well appointed. The bar is like a vegas nightclub, flashing lights, loud music - so if you like a happening younger crowd it's awesome. The staff was all helpful & friendly, bartenders make an amazing cocktail, & the front desk was generous w/a late check out.
"One Night - mini vacation "
Booked a one night stay to celebrate an early Anniversary and nearby company event. Arriving was a bit challenging as the parking directions weren't super clear (valet and overnight guests should come in on the Howard Street side not 3rd St). However once found, the great staff experience began. Valet nice and easy, check-in easy and pleasant, baggage assistance by Gerardo was very pleasant and helpful. Stayed in Room 1102, corner room. No real view and I would be cautious getting ready with the blinds open during the week since its across from office buildings! The online pictures doesn't do this set up justice! I wasn't too sure I would like modern design when booking at the W, but my husband and I were greatly impressed. The bit of a hallway for this room was great as it allows to keep luggage there instead of bogging down the space in the rest of the room. The bathroom was spacious and allowed for both of us to get ready. The second floor bar was a nice get away after our event. You could still hear the DJ from downstairs. Drinks were great and prices on par for city bars. Next morning somehow our room service breakfast order was taken but not processed. Husband had to go down to concierge to check for us. Our room phones weren't dialing out either. Someone came up to take our order and it came fairly fast. Bacon and eggs with breakfast potatoes was a perfect portion and enjoyed by the hubby. I wasn't feeling well most of our trip and i could barely touch my breakfast. I did try the omelette but didn't like the way it was prepared. Eggs were a little tough and I prefer the veggies mixed into the egg instead of just in the middle of a fold. We didn't order coffee since there is a Nespresso machine, but didn't have water to fill the reservoir. Check out was easy as was getting our car from valet. The reception area was busy but staff was pleasant and still very helpful. We will definitely be coming back, even with some of the cons. Pros: room size is awesome Bathroom spacious, with a soaking tub (sad i didn't get to use it) Comfy bed (Wish I could've taken it home with me). Perfect little cozy window corner if you wanted to relax if not on the bed. Great location in SF Cool bath soaps from Bliss. Bath robes are cozy and large enough to fit most. Totally could do "death by mini bar" if you like. Great selection on soda, juices, alcohol and munchies! Cons: Weird placement of the large mirror. Scared that it would get bumped into and damaged. Couldn't watch tv from window corner seating if wanted. Leather desk chair showing wear and tear. Unit doors don't close softly so you can hear other guests coming and going. Air control is a wall unit near the desk so it was hard to get the perfect temp. Toilet on the tall side. I'm 5'3" and I couldn't put my feet flat on the floor. I experience this at a lot of hotels though. Wifi connection directions weren't too clear for members.
"Boys weekend in SF"
All around great experience at W San Francisco. Prior to my stay I reached out to W Insider Sara for some recommendations for restaurants on Super Bowl Sunday, she was more than helpful customizing a night on the town with friends. When I arrived at the hotel Sara had a bucket of beers waiting in my room for my buddies and I, needless to say it's those unexpected gestures that made this trip so great.
