"Great location and cool hotel"

Lovely hotel, cool as you would expect for a W hotel. The bar was great, the room was quite cool. The bathroom was clean but the toilet roll holder is quite a long way from the toilet so if you don't have long arms,beware in case you fall off the toilet! The service is good. Pillows are comfortable. Amenities in the bathroom are very lemony. All in all, I liked the hotel and am likely to return.

"Poorly Managed"

Claimed thy were upgrading my room to a corner suite but what they were really doing, since it was late at night when i checked-in, was swapping rooms to give me one right across from construction'really resent that tactic. Have to pay $14.95 for Internet, really! Then ordered 2 omelets, OJ and yogurt'$110! they never tell you what the cost is and that it includes a 20% delivery charge AND a 20% automatic tip'really' they go out of their way to avoid telling you the total after you order by phone. Complained tot he front desk and the front desk mgr tried to shuffle me off to the ACCOUNTING dept. Asked to speak to the manager and he took my number and said he would call me later'never did. I'm a big fan of the W Hotels, use DC and NY a lot but this one is not well managed. If you are going to the convention center or a Giants' game, this is a great location, rooms are very nice, just watch out for the lousy management and egregious add-ons.

"Stylish hotel in the centre"

Central location in 3rd street and nicely refurbished make this a good hotel. Aimed at a younger or young at heart crowed they have cool lounge music in the whole building with resident dj in lobby bar on weekends, colour changing buddhas in every room for you fen and shui and the cosmopolitan flair that even the US president seems to value (on the evening we arrived there was a democratic fund raising dinner chaired by Mr president in the hotel) It also has excellent beds, towels, very good toiletries (own branded but quality wise up there with L'occitane ) house keeping ' go there for a central modern hotel with all mod cons but little pretention. Staff is well trained and good concierges excellent What's not too like Internet charge (free in lobby) is soo old fashioned and not in keeping with times (make rooms 14.50 more expensive if you must), communication (we would have appreciated an email regarding the presidential event and associated lock down which keep us out of the hotel or indeed the surrounding street for more than 2 hrs), valet parking not cheap at 4 60 but this is central San Francisco so possibly OK

"Aging hip"

We stayed at the W for a weekend gateway. Location is fantastic, walking distance to Mission/downtown/awesome Soma area, but also right next to annoying construction, which is exactly the view we got fom our room. Lobby/bar is still hip, but sort of aging hip, people, furniture, music, not so wow cool as in many other W hotels. Room follows the same pattern, white beachy decor, cool magazines, awesome bed, but showing the age. Nice weekend gateway especially if wanting to discover the city from vantage location. If you are in for the famed brand looks you might be a bit weary. Overall still a great hotel. Will return with toned down expectations, but still return.

"The correct blend of happening and service"

I have stayed at several W hotels in the US and quite frankly have found them a little too hip to the point of uncomfortable with staff that was also too impressed with themselves. But not here in San Fran. The hotel was effortless hip with a very friendly vibe and a great staff that was actually warm and helpful. The rooms were very comfortable and clean and well designed. I will say though that as 2 men that have a tendency to pack heavy and then shop voraciously the closet and drawers were a little sparse. But other than that this was the best stay at a W ever. I cant say enough about the staff and the room service and housekeeping
