I lived in San Francisco for five years before moving to Southern CA, so I can tell you, as a local expert, that the SW is in an absolutely perfect location for anyone wanting to explore the city by foot. Its central location provides the very best possible access to China Town (it's located right at the northern edge), an easy walk to North Beach, Coit Tower, Columbus Street, Jackson Square and the financial district / Embarcadero, and also OK walking distance (for those who like to walk) to Fisherman's wharf to the north, South of Market to the south, and even up over the hill (for the really ambitious) to the Russian Hill / Polk Street area. I just stayed at the SW for work by default (based on the other major hotels being booked), but following a very pleasant evening walk / light dinner on Columbus Ave, followed by an obligatory late-night plate of Chow Mein noodles, and the good room rate vs. the major hotels, I think the SW might now be my new hotel of choice for my future visits to the City.
