Very hip hotel just on the good side of Tenderloin. Don't venture more than 1 block South on foot. Room was clean, attractive, well supplied, and very comfortable bed. Walls are not sound proof - you can hear everything happening on either side of you. My shower had a slow drain, and I read other reviews with similar complaints.
There are better options for the business traveler and families, as this place caters to young hip singles, couples, and groups. If you can find the same rate at a place near Market St, might be a better choice. For example, there is no business traveler oriented breakfast service included in the rate. This is like the W with improved style and ambiance but fewer amenities.
Service was generally excellent, except for cocktail service in the Living Room (the lobby annex of the hotel bar, which itself is really more of a nightclub). Here, I often had to go hunt down the cocktail waitress. Once I ordered my first round, service was generally good thereafter. Same scenario on three trips though, so I take it this is their standard of service for greeting and taking your initial order. Snacks at the bar are very good though pricey. The warm pretzel braid and cheese plate are exceptional.
Recommend this place highly for young couples and groups who may place more emphasis on style than comfort.
