Came here for a party once at XYZ. Service was great and their Bloody Marys are pretty good. Prices are high, as one can expect from a W Hotel. I know the bar area is a popular spot for swankier locals as well as visitors.
Located conveniently near Yerba Buena Gardens, staying at the W Hotel gets you easy access to the mall, Union Square, loads of public transportation options and the great dining options in the SoMA district.
If you’re new to town and are looking for nearby dining options, I’d recommend Thirsty Bear for organic, house-brewed beer and California-influenced tapas. For a cheaper experience, Chevy’s nearby (yes, the chain) is always fun. If you’re looking for fancier fare, Pazzia, the Italian restaurant, is your best bet. It’s owned by a chef from Florence and it’s been recommended to me by several Italian friends.
Finally, if you’re staying this close to the Museum of Modern Art, do yourself a favor and visit it at least once!

If I had a choice to stay in SF for a few nights, I would stay at the W. I always loved the W Hotel chains around the world and this one is no different. The XYZ bar inside is nice to hang out for a cocktail.

Our top choice for a trendy luxury hotel. The staff treats each client like a valued guest, and the hip clientele feels right at home. You're just steps away from the MoMA (Museum of Modern Art), Union Square, and many of the city's top attractions. (If you'd like to go further afield, just ask for a personal ride in their fleet of Acuras.) Nice touches like Bliss spa toiletries, a DJ spinning tunes in the bar 'til late, and a small lap pool add to the trendy luxuriousness.

Great hotel if you are a fan of the W's hip, faux-botique vibe, like I am. Super comfortable, spacious rooms, some with great views of the city. They have a cool bar in the lobby and the location, walking distance to SOMA, Union Square, the Embarcadero and the SF MOMA is pretty tough to beat. Parking is, unfortunately, very expensive, so come prepared.

I haven't stayed in this hotel so I can't judge it properly. I have however been to the bar a good few times and found it pretty good in atmosphere but fairly underwhelming decor-wise. Big fan of the location however - right next to Yerba Buena, the Moscone centre etc.

The W San Fran is a great hotel choice for young professional looking to have a vibrant hotel environment. The lobby is teeming with sexy people starting a big night out. The well groomed crowd is always friendly and interesting.

Eh, this W location could be nicer. I suppose real-estate is expensive in San Francisco, but the hotel feels somewhat cramped. The rooms are quality, clean, and comfortable-- it's just not as nice as some of the other W locations I've stayed at.
Also, the W style doesn't really mesh well with San Francisco. In fact, the LA-like lobby-- purple, grey, and telepoppy-- feels entirely out of place in SOMA. This wouldn't be my first choice of hotels in the city, but hey, it's still a W.

This swanky hotel is located in downtown San Francisco near the Powell BART stop and across from the Moscone Center. There's a full bar upstairs (XYZ Bar) which serves well made yet pricy cocktails ($12-14) and elevated snacks like Tuna Tartar.
