Positive Reviews

Centrally Located

SW has a great location, in the center of downtown San Francisco and walking distance to all the major sights. Great dining options are just steps away from the hotel in both Chinatown and Little Italy. Union Square, a 20 minute walk, offers plenty of shopping opportunities. In addition, the cable car stop is just two blocks away.

Pleasant Accomodations

Guests were pleased with the size of the rooms and bathrooms, considering that this is an older hotel. Furthermore, the rooms were described as clean and comfortable. Management keeps the property well-maintained.

Staff of SW

The staff at SW is nice and friendly. Concierge service is always happy to arrange tours and give recommendations for places to visit. Guests noticed that the front desk is always available, no matter the hour, and eager to help.

Negative Reviews

Blah Breakfast

The complimentary breakfast wasn't all that impressive. Guests said it was too plain and served a very limited selection in paper and plastic dishes. In addition, items offered weren't replaced fast enough when they ran out.

City Street Noise

Rooms facing the street may find the street noise a bit too much to sleep with. A few guests also mentioned hearing their neighbors quite well. The rooms facing the inner yard don't have the issue of traffic noise, however, they lack a decent view. Bring earplugs as a precaution, if you're a light sleeper.

Parking Space

The parking garage is on the smaller side, and a few guests said it was hard to find a spot or park comfortably. Most guests have had no complaints though.
