I stayed at Westin St Francis a few times this July 2013. The hotel has an air of history, and although it has it's shares of scuff marks and carpet stains, it is overall decently clean. The location cannot be beat, as you are steps away from the central Union Square. With the a affordable rates offered, it may be right for you if your plan is to roam the city and use the room for sleeping only.
I booked mid-range rooms, and even though I am a Starwood gold member, the hotel did not try hard to find any upgrades. Also, the rude staff blamed high occupancy to deny me a late checkout. In all, the service was quite abysmal during my last 3 stays, so I am detecting a pattern.
