Great location! We were in the tall, newer tower and the room was massive, not sure about those in the smaller, older tower. The entire hotel was full of opulence and luxury, just beautiful. Staff in all areas were fantastic. The glass elevators on the outside of the building were a tourist attraction in themselves and offered incredible views of... More

Just spent 6 days at this hotel and the staff could not have been nicer. Even with a ton of people in town for a conference the staff went out of their way to be helpful and gracious. The rooms we well kept and clean. One item of note, the elevators are exterior lifts (very quick) and they are kept... More

This was my first trip to San Francisco. We were in town with my company for business. The hotel has a great central location. We stayed in the original part of the hotel that has the historic rooms. The room was very comfortable and the bedding was to die for. Being historic the bath had an odd configuration but workable.... More

Staying in this property in early January 2015 with a family for a vacation. This is our hotel hub in the USA holiday so we always back to this hotel. We checked in and checked out this hotel 3 times in 2 weeks so we kind of understand the hotel. We always stayed in the new tower and the receptions... More

I stayed at the St. Francis during a business conference and was pleasantly surprised. Even though the hotel is older, it has been kept up well and is clean and charming. Upon arrival, I was greeted and offered a bottle of water which was quite welcome. Check-in was quick and my room was ready even though it was just a... More

I have stayed at the Westin St. Francis many times over the past few years. In the past, the issue has been how dated the hotel has become. I believe that it is a historical landmark and can feel tired. This time, I was pleasantly surprised to have a fully refurbished room in the "new tower". It was well done... More

This hotel is very well situated in the heart of San Francisco's shopping district.. Everything is close by.. For Starbuck's Fans, there s a Starbucks one block away in every direction you leave the hotel.. You don't need a car.. If you have good walking shoes you can do like us : walk from the Fisherman's wharf to the hotel... More

Wife and I stayed here for 3 nights during MLK weekend. I've been to the Westin on Market street many times and this time we thought to give this place a try since it's much closer to attractions that we need. For the many times we have been to SF, this is the first time we actually went to all... More

Kinda fancy hotel, with a great location. One of its sides is faced to the Union Square, where you can hop on many different sight seen buses, grab a hot dog, visit many different stores or even just walk around. You can find Macy's, Saks and Victoria's Secret just one block away from the Hotel
