We had a great one night stay, albeit to short to really explore and enjoy the features of the hotel and surrounding area. Arrival and check-in were smooth, the room clean and comfortable, and departure was effortless. A light dinner at Chevie's across the street was also enjoyable. We will return on our next trip to San Francisco.

We had a nice stay here at the W SanFranciso while I attended a big conference at the nearby Moscone conference center. Of all the nearby hotels I think it has the closest location! For that reason the place is great however I just came from a week in Asia and while there I stayed at the W Hong Kong...

We are in the perfect location for easy access to the conference center and many popular attractions in San Francisco. It is difficult to compare us to the W hotels in Asia. W Hotels originated in North America so the hotels are a little older. Our Living Room is a popular spot for locals and guests alike. The cocktails are...

Classy, hipster and the staff did absolutely everything I needed to set the tone for my perfect proposal...yes it's pricey for everyday people like myself, but if you are gonna splurge here's a great place to do...the lobby is more club / lounge than some club / lounges. The courtesy car was a great addition and got us to dinner...

I’ve stayed at the W several times this year and had a great experience with everyone. Three people really stood out. Nina in Revenue worked miracles to get me room during a busy week when nearly every hotel was packed. Also, Abby and Damian in the W’s Trace restaurant remembered that I was a returning guest and demonstrated great customer...

We really don't have anything bad to say about our stay. From being able to check in early, to being able to check out late, the staff was very friendly and helpful. Though they were directly across the street from a major conference, the staff did not seem flustered in the least. Hao checked us in. He was able to...

I don't expect doors to be opened for me because I'm an ambassador member, but it would have been nice for the valet/door guys to pay attention when I walked up with my suitcase/backpack/bags in hand. I wasn't dressed in a suit like the rest of the customer base, so I was easily overlooked. This initial indication of how I...

We stayed here to celebrate a personal achievement, and spending one night in an upscale hotel was our first thought to spoil ourselves. This hotel is an easy walk to Chinatown and the major upscale shopping g district (hello, Barney's!) The front desk staff (Kevin) was particularly helpful and made arrangements to help us check in early, and the room...

My husband and I spent 3 days at this hotel. We are used to the W "energy" and felt it was a bit off here. There was no DJ in the lobby over the weekend which normally every W has. The rooms were also on the small side. We had a Cozy Corner room on the 24th floor and it...

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.
