I admit I am having a difficult time articulating my opinion of the W San Francisco. In some ways, it was exactly what I expected: a hip, trendy hotel in a big, exciting city. But in other ways it wasn’t what I expected: that the room size felt tight. Beyond the quirky, but appealing design, it was easy to see that was an ordinary room on which I spent too much money.
Don’t get me wrong. I love the playfulness of the hotel. Heck, the first thing you see when you walk in the corner revolving door is the swanky bar. The normally front desk is located towards the rear, a design I assume to get hotel guests to order a cocktail on the way to check-in.
The location is great. You can walk to BART, museums, the convention center, shopping, strip clubs, the ballpark, and lots bars and restaurants.
As to getting a good night’s sleep, the primary function of staying in a hotel, the W succeeds greatly. The beds are comfortable, the HVAC is silent and there is no noise typical of an urban environment.
You should stay at the W San Francisco Hotel at least once. It is a lot of fun. Get slizzard in the lobby bar while listening to the DJ. One you’ve had enough, ride the elevator as you admire the lenticular mural, stumble into your room and behold the glowing Buddha. Then collapse on the bed with your clothes on and sleep off the booze.
