Quirky hotel with unique touches of oriental art in rooms and elevators”

The gym is well equipped. Location wise it is conveniently situated next to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The water pressure in the shower was a let down. Apart from that the hotel was comfortable and conveniently located.

Overpriced, Overhyped”

Location, Room Decor, View

We stayed at W after a stay at Le Meridien the previous week. The contrast was obvious. The food at W was pathetic. For room service, we ordered the Brioche French toast as a vegetarian option & there was a stray piece of bacon on the plate! When we called to complain, the response we had was "Oh? Ok..." No apology was forthcoming. I asked for a fruit plate instead. 45 minutes later - no sign of any food. I called to cancel so we could go eat elsewhere - again no apology for the delay. Just a "Ok, we'll cancel that for you." The room decor is nice, the location is great and you can get a great view if you're above the 15th floor. Overall, this was an underwhelming experience.

this place puts in the lil extras that make you want to come back. a little pricey, but the staff, decor & the people that stay there make you wonder why you ever considered anywhere else. only negative for me is the check in time. if it were at noon i would havedone so much more in that hotel. room service was phenomenal even the maintainence guy was fast & efficient. i just probably won't ever use agoda again ever.

location, the bed and modern

The stay was really great beside 1-2 things that can be improved. The room and bed was comfortable and slept at night peacefully. Location 5 minutes walk to Market Street. Need some improvement on housekeeping as the room was not properly clean on day 3 and we always need to call reception to replenish things in the room. To the extend we didn't know that we need to pay USD34 for just mineral water. We thought it was a complementary water bottles. Only on the 3rd day we realised those are paid bottles until I saw the bill. The service at concierge is pretty good.

I have stayed at many W's before and this one fell below my expectations. The front office staff, mainly the females were way too "catty" and snobbish and I just didnt feel comfortable staying there. Parking is super expensive so beware....There are other hotels out there that you can stay at that you will definately get more bang for your buck.
