The room was overly priced, we could hear noises all day and night from kids screaming to doors slaming.
The location was great, the room was spacious, the gym was nice.

This is not value for money. I have stayed at other W Hotels before, and even though the lobby looks like a "W Hotel", the room itself did not. Quite frankly the room looked like a dorm room, and the bathrooms were outdated. Overpriced.
The location was good.

Room felt like a tiny old run down New York hotel. Paid 700 for staying one night after all taxes and parking and whatnot, and didn't even get free wifi. Asked for high floor room, and got one of the lowest.
Lobby and bar were awesome

Very outdated, so doesn't meet the expectations for a W hotel (in comparison to Barcelona, London, etc). Definitely not the one to take for that price.
Very cool location.

Great room, good view. Wonderful location. Great check in staff. Loved the DJ in the lobby!

Only thing was that food service stopped around 11 and I got back to the hotel starving twice. Would've liked to see a light late night menu available at all times.
Loved the vibe of this luxury hotel. Staff super friendly, even at 2am when I arrived. The maid service was top notch -- everything was in its place and stocked every day when I'd get back to my room after a long day at a conference.

Great location within walking distance of the Ferry Business, Nobb Hill and tons of great restaurants and museum.

We were very disappointed in the room which looked more like an Econolodge than a W. Desperately needs updating. Not at all like other W Hotels. The towels were cheap and course. The shower had no water pressure. There was only one bar of soap for both the sink and shower. The place has weak amenities. No pool or hot tub, no outside space, not even a small patio. In light of these inadequacies, the $40 per person to use the steam room and $60 to park seemed like a real insult. We could have had a nicer room, free parking and a swim at the Holiday Inn! What a joke.
The staff is nice.

After four nights I checked with the guy at the reception whether we could book an extra night.. He checked and offered one.. for double the price. We left as the corner room really was not worth a 500 USD/night. Also I think it is rather sad that when you have two people staying in a room that you continuously leave 1 1/4 L bottle of water iso 2..

We were in room 901, which was right by the elevator. You can hear the ding of the elevator every time it comes and goes (all throughout the night!) which we found terribly frustrating.
Bed was very comfortable and enjoyed the room decor.

Well, they could not seem to figure out how to properly bill people. The first night we checked in and had my friend with us. We asked for a roll away bed for the night (which cost $40, btw: pretty steep if you ask me). My friend paid for it with her credit card, which she very clearly said "use my card for the roll away bed". They ended up mistakenly using her card to pay for the incidental hold as well ($200) and they mistakenly charged her for the hold TWICE. So that $400 on her card. When she noticed the mistake she called the hotel and they literally said there was nothing they could do. Over the next 3 days they mistakenly charged her card over $1000. AND they charged for 2 nights with the rollaway bed, even though we used it for one night. Unbelievably terrible customer service. They definitely don't make you feel appreciated. AND parking is $50 a day unless you want to find street parking (impossible) or walk a few blocks from a parking garage (with your bags). Not the most convenient...
The hotel is pretty nice. Good location, fairly close to good shopping and the freeway. AWESOME strip club next door, if you're into that. Bed was super comfy. Decor was interesting and on cheesy. Bar downstairs and super convenient iPads and printer downstairs to print your boarding pass before you leave.

Window looked at a cement wall and it appeared all the rooms along my side of the corridor would be in the same situation (though still let some decent natural light in). $15 a night for spotty wifi. Bad or no reception on local network channels.
Really great/helpful staff. Room was cheery, comfortable, modern and functional - good use of space made the room feel larger than it was. Bliss products always a plus. Free bottle of water. Comfy bed. Yummy spiced nuts accompanied my cocktail! (Though they brought me an aviation cocktail instead of a gin martini with Aviation brand gin…letting that slide because it was still good).

A bit hectic but as to be expected for the location and popularity of the hotel and area.
Fun place to stay, cool environment feels more like a boutique hotel than a large chain. Even an illuminated Budha for good vibes.

the window bed is wonderful

Styling of the hotel was great!

The hotel did not look fully 'W' it was almost as though they had taken on an old hotel and tried to turn it into a w. The bathrooms needed an update for sure
All the social areas were nice and the Staff were very pleasant

They billed me for $15 for internet even though I never used it or logged on.
Location was great and party was downstairs..
