I was incorrectly charged by the hotel: First, they charged me for two, once it was only one (from Friday to Saturday) Second, they billed me, and now its on my statement - they shouldn't have done that once it was already payed by CWT. Problem is solved thanks to my employer. Not looking forward to be there again.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 6 February 2017

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...

Stayed at the W on a Saturday night which is the weekend for the Bay to Breakers. Got a room on the 24th floor and it had a nice view since it's a corner room. Room is spacious. Contemporary decor . It's a very hip hotel. Great customer service. The MOMA is just a block away. They have two floors...

My girlfriend has serious status with and is a big fan of SPG properties. So, for our trip to San Fran she booked the W. I had never been to the one lettered abode before this trip, but the great reviews had me feeling some good vibes. The friendly staff welcomed me with warm smiles as I checked in before...

Spent three nights here. It was our first time in San Francisco. Being at the W meant that we were right in the center of town without being too close to the madness of Union Square. W hotels are always lively and hip and this lived up to expectations. There was a resident DJ in the lobby literally every night....

Overall I was very pleased with our stay at the W. The location is perfect for exploring all of San Fran. The staff was top notch and always willing to lend a hand with a smile. The only slight negative is the room was a little dated and in need of a redo. However, it was very clean and comfortable....

The location is excellent but I heard so much about it and I expected to be even better. When we arrived middle of the night in the lobby was a disco with very loud music. I was worried that we can hear that in the room, but luckily not. The design of the room is very nice.

We stay for one night and this hotel and although we didn't explore the building much, the staff was very friendly and always willing to help. Also, well located and good price point in comparison to the other hotels around this area.

The W San Francisco is centrally located although I was surprised by the number of homeless people nearby which really does detract from the pluses of SFO. Something really does need to be done to fix this else tourists won't come again. On an overall basis the W stay was OK - I've stayed in smaller rooms in NY at...

Hello, Thank you so much for taking your time and writing us this note.

We all know how rough work travel can be. I was pretty bummed to show up at the W San Fran recently and be checked into a room with 2 double beds, despite having confirmed a reservation for a king bed. In fact, I'd hoped for an upgrade since I stay at Starwood properties a lot, and have Platinum status...

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.
