Its octagonal, three-story lobby exudes a stylish lounge-bar feel, decorated with art works reflecting the W Hotel’s proximity to San Francisco’s downtown grouping of world-class museums. The hotel’s 400 guestrooms feature Asian-influenced decor and afford glittering, panoramic views of the cityscape, with a hip-and-wealthy vibe that will leave you with your eyes peeled for a much-talked-about indie film star or international underground music phenom.
Its elegant, hard-hitting fitness center and amenities-rich spa (including a brownie bar) invite guilty luxury. The best aspect of the hotel is the massive living room, with sparkling modern-art, lip-smacking libations and a mellowing ambiance. Perfect pre-party chill space for the posh set.
