"Excellent 24 Hours"
Albeit a short stay - the W SF did an excellent job treating my like a regular (and I'll have to become one after this visit). Sara Hamza, the Insider and the rest of the staff were excellent. I can't wait to come back for just a bit longer. Cheers.
"Short trip great stay"
We came up for three nights and it was great. Room was clean and spacious with great views. The restaurant is awesome with really good food. The bar scene is great and the staff is really welcoming and helpful. You can’t beat the price for what you get would highly Rec.
It has been many years since we have stayed at a W trying to avoid them based on the brands reputation for being a bit of a party place. But we found a good rate and a room that interested us, so we booked and hoped for a semi quiet visit. We got what we wanted. Our room of choice was a “cool” corner room which provided extra space and windows over a standard room. We especially enjoyed the corner windows which included separate window seats and great views over the city. It was a cozy place to relax after running around the city. There was even a third window near the entry and bathroom that added even more natural light. The room itself was modern and stylish, but lacked good storage space. The bathroom was nice but pretty much standard issue with a tub/shower combination. Downstairs there is not much of a lobby other than the check in spot. The rest of the space was arranged in a club-like setting that is a busy lounge at night with DJ. Next to the lounge is the glossy hotel restaurant Trace. One of the best features of the hotel is the Bliss Spa and gym. This is a large full service area with the gym set in a round room with a glass ceiling in the middle. It has a spacy look with abundant cardio options, but not as many workout stations. The hotel is definitely on the trendy side and a little dark in spots, but the rooms are bright and we did not have any issues with noise. The location of the hotel is pretty good in a vibrant and still developing area of the city while still within easy reach of the tourist attractions in town.
"Great service, central location, THIN WALLS"
I really want to give this place more credit. The staff is wonderful and the room Service is very good. The rooms are large, clean, and modern. However, the walls are so thin. I can hear everything my Neighbors are doing and can practically make out their conversation. Since I was here for work putting in extremely long days this was really getting to me. I changed my room once only to find my new room was no better. If you stay here request a corner room with no neighbors if possible. If you value quiet and sleep you may want to book another hotel.
When you enter the lobby it feels like a lounge/nightclub, if you enter from the corner entrance. It's a fun hotel close to downtown and the Moscone Convetion Center. There's a nice restaurant on the bottom floor and a bar area where most people either meet to go elsewhere or hang out. Rooms have fun/silly mini bar items and trendy magazines.
