I would stay here again and again.

Great room, good view, nice bathroom, comfortable bed, nice furniture. Desk is comfy, lots of power outlets. Free coffee each morning downstairs. Food at the Trace restaurant is good, but not great. Service, however, was exceptional. Location was convenient to Chinatown, shopping, Pier 39, Fisherman's Wharf, Market Street, Cal Trains, Bart.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Walk west on 3rd, turn south on Market and 50 premium stores are within 2 blocks. West on Grant, and Chinatown is only an additional 4 blocks....

Interesting and hip

It was an amazing stay here at the W Hotel. The staff was really nice and certainly helped out when I needed assistance. At night, the lobby becomes a nice hangout to meet people. The rooms were unlike any hotel I've ever stayed at before.

Nightlife tip: In Hotel

The lobby becomes a great place to hang out at night. With their own DJ, W Hotel becomes quite the club.

Very nice location and very chic atmosphere. Very high-end hotel but needs better work-out facilities!

W Hotel Experience - San Francisco

The parking situation was not very convenient at all and the hotel charges a $48.00 valet parking fee plus tax if you keep your vehicle in their lot. They do suggest a public parking garage, which can add up to $30.00 a day, but the garage is about 3 to 4 blocks away. I also had a bathtub that did not have a working drain and I was unable to keep bathwater in the tub. For the price, I believe the "W Experience" was not worth it in San Francisco.

HOTEL CHIC CHIC

I really enjoyed staying at the hotel. The Acura car took us to the theater, fishermens wharf, and other places for free. The hotel staff was friendly. The lounge is very nice for people who want to get a drink and the XYZ restaurant is amazing. The bliss spa products top any Four Seasons or Ritz Carlton products. The room smelled amazing and was very comfortable. The view was great and the television had a lot of channels. There was also a nice ipod dock and the beds were comfortable.
