Beautiful, upscale hotel within walking distance to the Moscone Center, and excellent placed for exploring the entire city. The rooms were larger than we expected, and impeccably furnished. We stayed on a high floor, with a view of the Oakland Bridge - a beautiful sight at night. We (a party of six) spent two nights here, on our way to... More

We held a business cocktail/dinner meeting on Terrace in W hotel. It was nice to have indoor/outdoor gathering areas for a large banquet room. W Hotel has great bars and active nightlife so worth a stop early or late while in SoMa area of San Francisco, CA.

Thanks to Kelly We and her staff, my husband and I had the wedding of our dreams. Everyone from the bellboys to the bartenders were more than accommodating on our wedding day. The Social Terrace Room is gorgeous, and has an outdoor balcony where we placed one of the bars (which light up by the way). Kelly remembered every little... More

Nice, trendy hotel in a very good location in SF. Room was big and we had a fantastic view to the Oakland bridge! Top asian restaurant next door to the hotel! Try to get special offers otherwise it's getting very expensive! Walking distance to all shops and restaurants.

We stayed here on Starwood points because it was literally the only Starwood hotel available that would put 4 people in one room. We had double beds and a comfortable day bed for our adult size teenager. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Convenient location in SoMa one block from the art museum and easy walk to Union Square. There... More

I stay here each year for E3, and each year the team are delightful and helpful. It's a premiere location due to its proximity to the convention centre (literally a stone throw away), so most convention goers break away and have bar meeting.

This hotel is nice - the rooms are very nice and good sized. The downside for me was the hotel tried a bit too hard to be "cool" - lots of music with loud bass. It all felt like the placed lacked sophistication. Kind of like that friend who is cool - but has one too many tattoos and piercings.... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood 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 neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
