"Too hip for the room" W Hotel San Francisco Tip by Stasigrace

W Hotel San Francisco, San Francisco: 2,020 reviews and 8 photos

This hotel is trying to cater to people like me but seemed to have been designed either by nerds who don't understand what truly cool is, or middle-aged people who also don't understand coolness.

Anyway, it was fine, they just tried to hard to be cool.

Unique Qualities: It's just the hippest place ever...or so it thinks. It's kind of so over-the-top in it's love of itself that you have to giggle.

Nice pool, though. The room was cozy (read: tiny) but had views of some bridge (not Golden Gate).

Best toiletries and bed I've ever had in a hotel, I say with all honesty. And I plan to someday buy one of the robes (when I save up 100 bucks for it).
