"WOW'd for a night"
We were really impressed by the corner room upgrade (they knew I was an SPG gold when I checked in) and was also pleasantly surprised by the delivery of fruit, nuts and sparkling water. Fantastic location! The tourists can have the hotels on Powell street...little do they know, W SF has the ideal location to walk to Embarcadero, Westfield shopping center and cool bars and restaurants.
"The Wall of Despair"
My first impression was poor. I stayed here for business. Upon check in, the front desk clerk was badgering me because I asked for a room without liquor. She checked in the two colleges I was with and told me "my" room was being cleaned and she would call me when it was ready. She had a terrible attitude. After 4.5 hours I came back to the desk and asked her to check in (430pm). She handed me my room key without eye contact and pointed to the elevator. When I got to my room, not only was there liquor, but as I opened the blinds i was faced with a wall of the next building covering every inch of my outdoor view. Everyone knows what the hotel rates are downtown San Fran, so I dont have to tell you how unhappy I was. Please ask where your room is in relation to the "wall of despair". I gave 2 stars because the hotel was beautiful, but the service was poor and I was not expecting that from a high rated hotel. Needless to say, my 4 night stay made me dislike choosing the W as my next place to book while traveling. Side note. I am not opposed to drinking, but I just didn't want to temp myself to coming back to the room after a night out and opening up a 40-60 dollar bottle of liquor for a night cap. Is the guest not entitled to a simple request '
"Not so W"
I have stayed at a few W's over the years including Austin, Hollywood and Sydney. I've always found them to be hip, trendy and a bit luxe. W San Fransisco I found to be lacking that 'luxe' element. Instead I found it was a bit tired and dated. It just lacked the wow factor. It was however the perfect location for attending a conference and getting to see some sights. I would return, but without the expectation of other W Hotels.
This place felt just like being in a club on a Saturday morning at 3am after everyone has cleared out and no one has cleaned up yet. The lobby was dirty, dark, leather, poorly decorated and filled with no one who cares about anything. Not a single person would approach you and offer assistance with baggage, valet, or check in. It was so bad that we checked in, walked up to our rooms, and immediately began calling around for openings. It was a Friday in August, rates 3 times higher than what we were paying there were worth it so that we didn't have to stay in that disgusting place. Unless you would like to sleep at a club, wake up and a club, walk around in a club, and have a bunch of weird, creepy, rude men claim to be the employees that help you there, avoid this place at all cost.
"Top W Hotel"
One of my favorite W Hotels! This W hotel has great rooms- colorful & uniquely decorated, including cool window seats with wooden shutters. I have stayed at this location twice and had good experiences both times. It is close to the convention center and close to restaurants, shopping, etc. If you're going to chinatown, piers, you may want to take a taxi or other transportation. The service last time I stayed here was excellent- we had to head out at 5am and they made sure we had complimentary coffee, milk and juice for our kids, to go. Definitely stay here if you are visiting San Francisco!
