Hotel Description

The W hotel in San Francisco was built with a bang. Of all the W hotels throughout the world, W San Francisco was the first to be constructed from scratch. And one day, a five-ton piece of stone fell from the crane onto a building below. Nevertheless, the tower went up and people flocked to its hyper-trendy location in SoMa (the center of what was then called “multimedia,” now simply the tech industry).

The W style still stands out among San Francisco hotels. The lobby is three stories high and dubbed the Living Room — faux-fur throws and funky low sofas and coffee tables with pull-out chess boards abound. The bedrooms have a natural palette typical of W hotels — black, cream, mocha, with spots of navy, silver, and mahogany. Rather than curtains, there are louvered shades. Equipment is state-of-the-art; high-speed internet access, 37-inch flatscreens, and as in all W hotels, luxuriant feather mattresses (arguably the best thing about the rooms), and a great spa and fitness center. It’s the new hotel/office that makes efficiency sexy.

But overall, nothing is particularly shocking. That’s the point. W hotels are at once hip, convenient, and cozy — borrowing high design notions from Starck, Liaigre and others, and bringing them down to earth. In a way it’s the hotel version of Club Monaco and J.Crew, and we don’t mind seeing boutique style go mainstream. The W hotel is the most practical of concepts, tailored for the young entrepreneur.
