America's most relaxed city

San Francisco is a city that wears its charms on its sleeve. The views of the bay, ocean and woods to the north and east from this very walkable city’s famous hills are spectacular, as is the food, nightlife and intellectual climate. From its true birth during the Gold Rush, the city by the Bay has been home to renegades, social movements and artists of all stripes. Don’t miss the vibrant Mission District, cool North Beach, or the shopping Mecca of Union Square.

W Hotel Bars

Trendy bars for the posh

Stay Editor's Note

The two bars at W Hotel are packed with beautiful people. The first bar is a circular affair in the lobby, while the main room, next to XYZ , lies behind a beaded curtain above.

Some find the atmosphere a bit competitive, but the scene shifts nightly and banquettes upstairs encourage an intimate vibe.
