Stayed here for two nights, and we were pleased to move on for a further seven nights at another hotel in the city. The hotel overpromised for what we were provided. It's currently in the wrong price bracket and I wouldn't recommend it to friends. The location is good (that's the third star in this review), Bliss products in the...

Damian in particular is great. The food is terrific, and Damian is courteous and remembers people. A W that treats you like a local... that's unusual. As a local who needs more good quiet places to sit and have a meal with a business associate.

I live in NYC. Was in SF to show my daughter around. I thought the hotel was reasonable given the price. The restaurant was great. The waiters and maids were excellent. I mean really excellent! My constructive feedback: When you walk into the lobby you smell the odor of a cleaning detergent. It's unpleasant. Also the lighting is really dark...

Location is excellent, I always recommend this place when friends and family come to visit out of town. Hotel is very zen and offers a modern vibe. There are plenty of restaurants around too that are walking distance.

Rooms are pleasant and comfortable. There are no USB connections available in the rooms, so be sure to bring your own cables and adapters. If you are planning to visit MOMA, which is right next-door, do not make plans for a Wednesday, as the museum is closed on Wednesdays.

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful stay at the W Hotel. The employees are more than happy to help you with whatever you need, including a complimentary drink! The hotel itself is very modern and very clean. Includes a great lounging area for friends, and a great restaurant. Our room was on the 30th floor and provided a wonderful...

Not my favorite hotel in SF, but it was OK. The rooms are tired & not very well appointed. The bar is like a vegas nightclub, flashing lights, loud music - so if you like a happening younger crowd it's awesome. The staff was all helpful & friendly, bartenders make an amazing cocktail, & the front desk was generous w/a...

Booked a one night stay to celebrate an early Anniversary and nearby company event. Arriving was a bit challenging as the parking directions weren't super clear (valet and overnight guests should come in on the Howard Street side not 3rd St). However once found, the great staff experience began. Valet nice and easy, check-in easy and pleasant, baggage assistance by...

All around great experience at W San Francisco. Prior to my stay I reached out to W Insider Sara for some recommendations for restaurants on Super Bowl Sunday, she was more than helpful customizing a night on the town with friends. When I arrived at the hotel Sara had a bucket of beers waiting in my room for my buddies...

Hotel is located in the South of Market area across from the Moscone convention center, great convenient location if you're here for a conference or convention. It is a bits away from the BART Station, the nearest one is Montgomery Station located about 4-5 blocks away which gives you direct access to SFO Airport International Terminal. Yerba Buena Square and...

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
