Epitomizing cool modernity and urban chic both in design and clientele, this 31-story hotel owes part of its cachet to its prime location next door to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Doodle a masterpiece yourself with the Etch-a-Sketch found in each compact guest room, some with upholstered ...

Starwood Hotels & Resorts' 31-story property is as modern and hip as its fashionable clientele. Sophisticated, slick, and stylish, it suits its neighbors, which include the Museum of Modern Art, the Moscone Center, and the Metreon Sony entertainment center. The striking gray granite facade, piped wi...

With this property, the W hotel brings its sophisticated, chic style to the SoMa district. Given the decor, it's fitting that this property is located adjacent to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Additional neighborhood offerings include the Moscone Convention Center, across the street. For t...

Set in the heart of downtown San Francisco's South of Market, W San Francisco stands out with the offbeat, yet sophisticated spirit of the city it calls home. Literally stands out. On the Third Street Frieze of W San Francisco, towering 46 feet above street level, is a fantastic reclining figure mad...

Chic. Modern. Thinking. Set in the heart of downtown San Francisco's South of Market, W San Francisco stands out with the offbeat, yet sophisticated spirit of the city it calls home.

The W hotel in San Francisco was built with a bang. Of all the W hotels throughout the world, W San Francisco was the first to be constructed from scratch. And one day, a five ton piece of stone fell from the crane onto a building below. Nevertheless, the tower went up and people flocked to its hype...

very poor service - user review
a hotel trying hard to be different. It is in many ways, good and bad. the real significant difference, unfortunately, was the unfriendly attitude at the front desk. watch out those un...

My second home! - user review
A very clean hotel with a great location, W San Francisco has a warm and highly accomodating staff. Amazing to see how hard core they are about respecting the "do not disturb" sign. Perks include bliss products, a discount on bliss purchases, and priority booking for spa services. The gym ...

Coolest Hotel in SF!!! - user review
Had a Grand time at the W. Service was outstanding, particularly Ku the concierge who made the best reservations for us (spa, restaurants) at the hottest places. Would go back in a hear...

If it all about the attitude then the W has it down to a science. The attitude is bi coastal from New York to San Francisco, and you have to wonder why. Isn't the business here suppossed to be "all about the customer " So why is it that they make you feel like you are bothering them from t...

No hip, no style, and well overpriced - user review
If you are not 20something and wearing black then you best turn right around and leave the building. I repeat....leave the building before the show you the door. It is an extremely exclusive hotel that only looks for blonde bomshells and models. They don't even...

What´s all the fuss about? - user review
If you like trendy people, ultra modern decor and techno music playing 24 7 than this is the place for you. Unfortunaltly, I prefer to be treated nicely when I'm paying an arm and a leg to stay at an overrated hotel. We were actually scolded by a bellman! They charge you $45 per day, plus tax and ti...

bad service, bad attitude ... nice bar - user review
Indifferent front desk staff, terrible concierge who act like they have a million better things to do than recommend a decent restaurant and make reservations for you ... and when they finally do give a recommendation it ends up being one of the worst restaurants in the city, also really teeny tiny ...

As usual, The W was great - user review
I've liked every W Hotel I've ever stayed in. The rooms are always very small, but everything else outweighs that. They're modern, but not too modern that it looks cheap and is uncomfortable. The staff is great. Never in the way, but always there to help when you need them. The hotel is a little out...

Most wonderful experience - user review
Our two night stay at this hotel was easily the best travel experience we ever had; staff was phenomenal and absolutely went out of their way to make our stay exquisite we had the house car at our disposal on a couple of occasions, and one of the staffers even procured a bottle of wine that waited i...

Absolutely Awesome - user review
This hotel has a hip gathering area at the bar, the drinks were terrific and the service awesome. The hotel check in staff was friendly and knowledgable. This is a great place to just hang out. But if you have a chance to stay I...

We stayed at the W for our honeymoon - user review
We had a blast at the place. The concierge was always on hand to help us make reservations and he even gave options on chinese deliveries to the hotel. The only problem we had there was checking in late. We weren't able to go into our room till after 5 pm and we were definitely annoyed but then they...

This Hotel Was Just OK - user review
We stayed for three nights. The staff was genuinely friendly and very helpful. It was definitely swanky and fun. However, we thought it was over priced. Our 400 sq ft room may have been that on paper, but with the walls, desk, bench, stool and bed, in practicality, it was a 100 square ft. We stayed ...

Avoid like the plague: Dark Days at Planet Dubya - user review
I have to take slow deep breaths whenever I think about the "Dubya" San Fran, even though it's now five months since I got back from my trip (in June 2000). Not just because of the mind blowing bill at the end of my 8...

Clublike atmosphere in SF - user review
I stay at the W in San Francisco often with my friend. We truly enjoy our time. One thing that makes the W in San Francisco stand out to me is the atmosphere. I love the party and social life. It's nice to have a hotel that feels like you are stepping into a first class lounge. The lighting, music a...

Like an episode of Sprockets - user review
My wife and I stayed here for a few days while on our honeymoon in SF. My first impression was that I couldn't help but think that the staff there looked like they were out of an episode of the old SNL skit Sprockets. They a...

W. Like the President. But cooler. - user review
One of the dubious rewards I get for spending too many nights in hotel rooms is the opportunity to stay even more nights in hotel rooms. As a member of the Starwood Preferred Guest program, I rack up credits by taking dull ...

´Metrosexy´ - user review
Recently, I have had the chance of stay at the W Hotel San Francisco. In my opinion, Starwood group (Westin, St Regis, Sheraton, W, Luxury Collection) has some of the best hotels in the country. I usually only stay with them s...

One of the best hotels I have ever been. From the bellmen to the XYZ restaurant, which is located at the lobby of the hotel, all excelent . Locked yourself outside the room ! In less than 2 minutes security was there to open the door. Leaving the room in the morning just to take breakfast downstairs...

San Fran’s best hotel! - user review
This was a wonderful hotel located right in the heart of the city. The staff is very friendly and the concierges are wonderful. We had a view of Twin Peaks from our hotel room, it was great. We were located next door to the MOMA of San Francisco and a few blocks away from Bloomingdales shopping cent...

Don’t stay here unless your rich..... - user review
This was the worst hotel experiance i've ever had. Sure the hotel looked nice, but the service was horrable. They didn't have any parking so we asked the valet where we could park our cars. Well when we parked where he told us to, we went to our room, anyway after we woke up in the morning i needed ...

A little hip for me, but good hotel - user review
Very comfortable hotel for business, well located near financial district. A little put off by lobby bar but its nicely isolated from guest areas. Overall, a good four star. Traveler's tip on saving a few bucks.Get breakfast at the Starbucks next door and ...

Sure Bet - user review
The W San Francisco is a sure bet when you want a nice immaculate hotel room smacked in the middle of all the major attractions. It gears a younger/middle age audience as it is super posh and chic. I'm from New York and I almost didn't fit in, what with the jumping nightlife they have going every ni...

Good but there is better nearby - user review
Definitely a W but it could have been better. A modern, dark, moody, and slightly cold atmosphere dominates. The room itself was fine but a bit worse for wear. The scuffed walls an...
