Decent but outdated

The W is usually a great find, but this one feels outdated and super dark. The room was supposed to be upgraded, and I was instead given a square next to the housekeeping office.

Perfect Weekend Getaway

I was looking for a hotel room for the night, to explore downtown with my boyfriend. Great location, in a quieter area of downtown. The hotel is absolutely beautiful inside. The room was very roomy, clean and comfortable. I will definitely stay here again!

Great Hotel, Reasonable Price

Beautiful, trendy place, comfortable bed...room wasn't read till a couple hours after when we should have been able to check in, but they made it up to us, and the wine mixer at 5 was nice. Also, not too bad of a walk to the bay. Classy place, great stay.
