          A very nice hotel at the heart of the city. Staff are very accommodating as well. The room though is too small for my taste. Not comparable to a Shargri-La or Manila Peninsula. But will definitely go back here when I visit SFO again.

          I need A/C that works REALLY REALLY WELL. Much colder than most people like. I know the thermostat in any hotel can be "set at 65" but the room temp always stays around 72-75 regardless. Does the W have excellent A/C that can get the room temp down to 65 degrees even if it's colder outside? Please let me know.
