Great hotel and service. Excellent hotel gym that you can use 24/7. Great breakfast and service from Damian. Rooms are clean, bliss products are great. Beds are huge and comfortable, stayed on the 6th floor and the 21st floor as part of my trip. Both were good.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 12 January 2017

I have been staying here for years and decided to branch out on my last 5 day trip to SF. I stayed at the Mark Hopkins Intercontinental, Park Central, Sheraton FW, etc. The W far surpasses them all. The service is incredible, the rooms, fun, the location central. I remember I had one issue in years past and they remedied...

We had wonderful stay in February for my birthday. Spacious rooms, lots of natural light, bliss spa amenities, and nesspresso coffee maker. Room service was delicious and affordable. The location was perfect. WLking distance from downtown area, shopping and restaurants. The room was very well appointed. I liked the decor and product.

I recently stayed at the W with my daughter for a birthday celebration. The staff was amazing! Especially Sara who checked in with me often and delivered a great surprise to our room! I love the location and all the new restaurants in the area. Will definitely stay here again!

We had a beautiful corner room, watched the fog roll in over the city... we love the location lots to see and walk to. The location made it a great place for us to come back to and take a quick break when needed. Next conference, I will be sure to act early and get a room here. Moscone is...

I am very overwhelmed with how welcoming the team was, Rick, the MOD, was very accommodating and granted me with an early arrival, not to mention on a higher floor with a city view. The room was absolutely at it's finest. I also, want to thank Jeff, the Director of Security, for going above and beyond. I wasnt able to...

This week I was called by the JW Marriott in San Francisco telling me they were oversold and asking if I would be willing to switch to the W for my three night stay. They offered to pay one night's lodging and give me 10,000 reward points so I said "yes". The W was closer to the Moscone Center where...

Hello, Thank you very much for the detailed message in regards to your most recent stay at W San Francisco. It gives me a perfect outlook on our hiccups and how we can tweak to better our W experience. We totally agree with the room age but not to worry, we are renovating all our rooms in 2017. Coming soon!...

Having stayed in W hotels in other cities, I thought that booking here would be a nice treat for me and my sisters. It was disappointing. The room was tiny, the service was just ok. I would have thought that since I was there for 4 nights our toiletries would be refreshed daily but they were not. Location was great...

I love their Bliss bathroom amenities, good wifi and comfy beds. This W is next to SF Moma and its new restaurant In Situ, so it's perfect for rainy days or when you're too tired to walk. The Moscone centre is opposite so their rates go from USD200+ to USD1000+ during conference days. Our visit this time was great, they...

I was in San Francisco for a couple of days for work. It's a great place. Food is good and the bar is amazing! We had drinks on the Friday evening of my visit.. service is so good it's easy to end up pretty drunk! :) Great location - you can easily access shops, bars and restaurants. The only downside...

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.
