When I was staying with you every two weeks in 2006; you were my favorite SF hotel. I loved the history of the building, the quality of the rooms and the service. Fast-forward to 2014 and how things have changed. After trying on multiple occasions to give you my monthly business, I’m officially moving on after this last visit. I’ve... More

I stayed at this property a few years ago, but this last trip for the San Fran 1/2 marathon was enjoyable and seamless. Although it was a busy time, check-in was so smooth and my room on the Starwood preferred floor in the tower was wonderful. The newly renovated king room had lots of space and a fantastic view. I...

Stayed here over the Easter long weekend in a tower room on the 30th floor. Always prefer the tower rooms to the older section of the hotel as the rooms are larger with great views from the 20th floor and up. Stay here about once a year and have never been disappointed. Rooms are clean, comfortable, modern and have great... More

Three nights in Feb 2014, business trip. The hotel is a journey into the history of San Francisco - the stately, grand lobby is a veritable, visually appealing museum of photographs and mementos detailing the many politicians and celebrities who have stayed here over the decades. Every aspect of this property was exceptional, memorable in a positive way, and superb!... More

I spent two nights at the Westin with my family while visiting San Francisco. This is a big hotel, well located, rooms are very nice. Fitness center is OK although a little crowded due to the size of the hotel. Perhaps also due to the size of the hotel (scale is too big) I felt the service was not that... More

Our room was in the old section on Powell Street, which is quite charming, but nothing special. The room was of moderate size, a bit cramped with our baggage in it. Bathroom very small. Everything was in good order, and nothing to complain about except the charge of $14.99 a day for Internet, and the fact that the bed was... More

Still lots of faded granduer. Some rooms are windowless so be careful. In the heart of the union square action. Service can be patchy. Housekeeping can also be very noisy in the corridors. Breakfast waiters can be annoyingly attentive....tip hunters

My husband and I just spent the weekend at the Westin St Francis and had an incredible time! They hotel is centrally located and it was incredibly to access our favorite stores, restaurants, and lounges. We stayed in a "Tower" room and were incredibly pleased with the renovations. We will definitely be coming back as soon as we can! :)

Centrally located in Union Square the WSF is a great goto hotel. Its centrally located, everyone is very polite. My only advice is to ask specifically for the TOWER as the old St. Francis section of the hotel is a bit dated.
