We recently stayed at W San Francisco for our coverage of Outside Lands 2014 (read about our experience here). There are many reasons to consider W San Francisco your first choice when traveling to the city, so we decided to make a list of the TOP 10 things we loved during our stay.
1- Convenient location
W San Francisco is located at the SoMA district which is perfect for the traveler that seeks art, fashion and music. The hotel has a great view of the Bay Bridge and you will be just a few blocks away from Union Square where you will find big name brands and luxury shops.
2- The Lobby Bar and its drinks
It doesn’t matter what you want…a beer, cockatails, wine, they’ve got it. Add a live DJ to make the experience even better. Opened from 11:30AM to 1:30AM, there’s always time for a drink. Our recommendation: Mr. Robinson (whiskey, charbay black, and walnut liqueur.)
One of the best things that W San Francisco offers is definitely the food. Trace offers a fusion of flavors in its seasonal menu made entirely from sustainable ingredients. The menu is changed during weekends so you will always have something new to try. Trace is pure deliciousness.
4- Their Whatever/Whenever service
Their Whatever/Whenever service is literally getting anything you want. Just ask and get it. The only thing you need to do is push a button from your phone.
5- The Upstairs Drink Boutique
Want drinks in a more private area? Go upstairs and you will find yourself in a place that lets you party with your friends enjoying your own space and having the greatest cocktails and top shelf liquors.
6- Their iPhone App
You know how they say there’s an app for everything? This even applies when you are talking about W San Francisco. You can book a room on any W Hotel, find special offers, and (my favorite part) listen to music from their own playlist.
7- Bliss Spa
It doesn’t matter if you are traveling for pleasure, you always end up tired. Bliss San Francisco Spa will surely make you feel better with everything they offer for both men and woman.
8- Everyone is welcomed
I liked the fact that there were many families with children staying at W San Francisco. This makes the hotel perfect no matter if you are in the city for business, family vacation, or by yourself. Even your pet is welcomed!
FIT, is their new state of the art gym that is officially unveiled this month. If you exercise on a regular basis, I’m sure you get a little worried when traveling for several days because you will probably interrupt your gym routine. This won’t happen at W San Francisco. You will like it even more than your regular gym.
10- The whole experience
Everything included in this list makes the whole experience of staying at W San Francisco more than perfect. You won’t be getting what you expect, you will get a lot more than that.
