Overview

Central location and well-appointed rooms
Guests weren't thrilled about extra costs for Wi-Fi or parking

Like many W hotels, San Francisco's iteration is über-trendy, yet remarkably comfortable. Previous guests were pleased with the hotel's accommodations, which include pillow-top mattresses, goose-down bedding, flat-screen TVs and access to iPod shuffles and a variety of DVDs through the hotel's Whatever/Whenever program. The W San Francisco also provides pet beds, litter boxes and food bowls for those traveling with four-legged companions. In addition to its guest rooms, the W also has TRACE, a restaurant that serves socially conscious Californian cuisine, and the lavish Bliss Spa, where you can watch a movie while you get your nails done. Sitting near the Yerba Buena Gardens in the SoMa neighborhood, this Marriott-affiliated hotel makes a great choice for business and leisure travelers alike. Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

The place is infused with hip energy, owing some of its cachet to the next-door San Francisco Museum of Modern Art: techno-pop pulses in the lobby, bar, and Trace Restaurant, where the massive jellyfish-like chandelier is a destination in itself.
