The $299/night (corporate rate) room was disproportionally small. The window was facing other unhappy neighbors and the view was non-existent. In-room breakfast is advertised as $25, they presented a check for $38 ($25 + various fees and charges that are not stated anywhere). The room was partially cleaned one day, looks like somebody was in a rush. The bathrooms is... More

Stayed here for a couple of days. The hotel is a historic hotel located on Union Square. The lobby is grand. We had a room with a great view of the square. Close to everything. Shopping and art galleries are close. The F line is close to take you to pier 39

Friendly staff, but this place feels run down. The lamp by the bed is broken and the sink stopper is also broken. Called maintenance 3 hours ago, but no response yet. TV is oddly placed. Check In - how about more conspicuously placing the Starwood Preferred Guest sign? Waited 10 minutes in general line (really slow) only to later see... More

Jason Patty checked me in at the front desk and was so good that I was compelled to write a review (which I never do!). Thank you, Jason! The hotel was beautiful - I was in the newer tower with an amazing view. I heard some of the older rooms were quite small, but the charm and history makes up... More

On 1st arriving at the hotel it looked very grand & we were quite taken back, but shame about the bedroom! It was clean & tidy but very small & difficult to move around the room with very little space to put your things! The bar was great, the service was very good & they took pride in their job... More

Hotel built at the turn of the century (1904) by railroad magnate. Has been there through the goldrush, earthquake, jazz age - in 1920s it was the fashionable place to stay for celebrities and famous. Apparently was the backdrop for Hollywood's first great scandal (Fatty Arbunkle scandal). Hotel stood erect through 1930s and WWII - Salvador Dali rumoured to stay... More

I had this hotel as a 50th birthday pressie from my partner and was very excited and then slightly worried after reading some of the reviews, but I needn't have been. The hotel rooms (we stayed in the old part) were spacious and exceptionally clean with a great view out over union square. Yes they are probably not as sound-proofed... More

We came to SF on a business trip and stayed a few extra days for fun. I was very disappointed with the hotel. The noise inside and outside this "historic hotel" was never ending! I was hoping for a nice quiet relaxing stay, but this was not the place for that. Added to that, our room was closet-sized and the... More

We had a wonderful weekend getaway at the St Francis. Ask for a room in one of the Landmark Towers. They are a great, stately rooms, some overlooking Union Square. If you like historic properties, you get the best of both worlds. Modern amenities, like a great bed, in a glorious setting.

Spent 5 days during a convention. It was a good experience & the location is absolutely awesome. The food was OK but again the location & proximity to everything is the key. The hotel architecture is very cool
