A refreshing change from the corporate lodgings of downtown San Francisco, the W Hotel San Francisco exudes cool. The loungey three-story first floor houses the popular nightlife spot Upstairs Drink Boutique and the hotel’s restaurant Trace, where Chefs Paul Piscopo and Alaun Grimaud offer a menu of seasonal, local produce. Located in the heart of the SoMa district, the hotel neighbors with the Museum of Modern Art and Yerba Buena Gardens, and is a short walk away from Union Square’s shops, the Financial District, or the Embarcadero waterfront. Inside amidst the modern, funky décor of the rooms, you’ll find Bliss bath products, a 32-inch flat screen plasma TV, an Apple iPod docking station, and fun touches like Chinese checkers. Guests can also unwind with a dip in the outdoor heated lap pool.
