We were just spending one night in San Francisco to celebrate our wedding anniversary before catching a flight the next day for Milan. Our hotel preference while in SF is usually The Palace or the St. Francis. Both of those hotels were sold out at the time we made our reservation as a huge convention was in town, so we decided to stay at the other Starwood property in the neighborhood, the W.
We were immediately greeted and had a very pleasant experience with check in. Our arrival time was in the late afternoon, and the small lobby was humming with business men and women chatting over drinks. We were escorted to our beautiful corner room with a separate sitting area, and the added benefit of in room coffee maker (a disappearing feature that we personally LOVE).
We have absolutely no complaints about the hotel, but on a personal level, we prefer the grandeur of the Westin St. Francis or The Palace (Luxury Collection). In fact, the following morning, we walked 10 minutes to have a romantic breakfast at The Palace.
However, if you are in town for business, the proximity of The W to the Moscone center is somewhat convenient, as is the central location to enjoy the area shopping and restaurants.
