COVID-19: SW Hotel Statement and Guest Conduct Policy

As we navigate these uncertain times, our highest priority remains the health and safety of all of our guests and employees. Following guidelines set forth by the CDC, state of California, San Francisco’s Public Health Department, and in combination with industry best practices, we are implementing a set of enhanced cleaning and conduct protocols. All of our employees will be wearing face coverings; a screen in between you and the front-desk agent will be in place in the lobby; high-touch areas will be disinfected daily; hand sanitizers will be available on our lobby counters for your use; and markers will be placed on the lobby floor and elevators to remind you to stay 6 ft. apart from others. These are some of the many measures we are taking.

While these measures do not offer a guarantee of your safety from COVID-19, we will continue to do our part to minimize the risk while striving to make your stay an enjoyable one.

We appreciate your understanding that when you make a reservation to stay with us, you are agreeing to comply with all of our policies and procedures as summarized in this page.
