Under current management, the venerable St. Francis hotel on Union Square in San Francisco is a dependable and mostly delightful place. If you can arrange to be in the newer "tower" rooms you're likely to be happy and comfortable. The upper dozen floors also come with stunning views over the city and over the bustling hub -- Union Square. If you are relegated to the "classic" or "Traditional" rooms in the old original building, be prepared for darker digs and a general feeling that although they've been refurbished, you're not quite a first-class guest.
As with all Westin properties, the service standards are quite good, the facilities are clean and pleasantly designed, and the linens and beds are excellent. Dining facilities in the hotel are limited and pricey. But you are within a block or two of many world-class, delightful food options. You're also just a block from the theater district; you're on one of the main cable car lines, and the walking-distance attractions are likely more than you'll have time to enjoy.
This, like most Westin properties, is highly recommended.
