A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review

Hip, fresh and vibrant, this multifaceted boutique hotel in San Francisco's artistic epicenter offers floor after floor of entertaining options for your extraordinary upcoming event.

It all begins at the lobby level, where the eclectic and electric mix of iconic design and contemporary luxury that characterizes W Hotels worldwide is immediately apparent. Arranged more like a home than a lobby, W's capacious Living Room brings suggestions of the cityscape and the artsy SF MOMA ambiance indoors in the sophisticated use of black and gray, the silvery and neon accents, and lighting that transitions naturally from day to night. This chic, lounge-like setting with its metal-and-glass fireplace and racy black bar is a guaranteed ice-breaker, so start the party with a DJ and cocktails here … or use the restaurant, TRACE, with its focus on sustainability and innovation, for cocktails and dining.

But don't stop here. A swift ascent by stair or elevator will take you to the next dazzling level—the mezzanine-style floor that overlooks the Living Room. A delicate fiber-optic chandelier waterfalls from the third-floor ceiling down through both spaces tying them together. In the Upstairs Bar, your guests can sip cocktails while watching the scene below. The long, all white LED-lit bar is a showstopper. Silver bead-curtained cabanas with Living Room views and private seating are a very subtle nod to San Francisco in the '60s and lend this sleek space a sultry charm. Need more room to mingle? How about dinner, dancing or cocktails in the Industry Room and its intimate prefunction area, another great spot from which to view the first-floor action.

There's more. The third floor features two glamorous Great Rooms with a pearl white and silver color scheme, avant-garde lighting, floor-to-ceiling windows, full AV capability and a generous prefunction foyer. Both rooms can be combined for banquets and galas. Or consider the three Workrooms, which can also be used together if the occasion warrants, along with their own prefunction space. For certain celebrations you might want to book the whole floor, which also includes a Strategy Room and a Studio. Even the halls here are suitable for entertaining. You could wander around them for hours, relaxing in wingback chairs or tuning in to music in the Chill Pods—try one, they make a cool backdrop for photos!

The newly renovated fourth-floor Social Terrace is one of San Francisco's most dynamic event settings. Sheltered by a sleek pavilion designed in W's signature contemporary style, the Social Terrace is a dramatic location for ceremonies, dining or even dancing. The vibe is modern luxury with an urban edge, and a birds-eye panorama of the city lights is a scintillating bonus.

Really, this is a venue so mind-blowing in possibilities you will just have to see it to believe it. So, check it out. The experienced event staff are poised and eager to help you invent an unforgettable affair. And when the party is over, your next adventure can begin here, too: You and your guests will love unwinding in one of the stylish guest rooms or suites and sampling W Hotels' famous Whatever/Whenever service.
