Just returned from a 3 day stay. The entrance to the hotel has the old world charm. Check in went smoothly, the clerk was courteous and very helpful. Our room was located in the tower on the 21st floor, clean and spacious and a spectacular view. We ate breakfast and dinner in the Oak room restaurant, service was impeccable and... More

We recently stayed here while in SF while moving my son to USF. I have to say that the staff from the time we pulled into valet, was nothing short of awesome. I travel frequently and have had the privilege of staying in some beautiful hotels, and what I found is that what makes a property truly special is its... More

If you want to be in the middle of San Francisco, this hotel has it all. Walking distance to the Muni/Bart systems, cable cars and shopping right outside its doors. The hotel is a piece of art from times long ago. The food, service and rooms were also great! If traveling to San Francisco, this hotel has a great location!

We recently stayed at the Westin St Francis and was pleasantly surprised. I had read several negative reviews of the hotel, however because of its central location at Union Square decided to stay there. The hotel was steeped in history and old world charm, some magnificent stories as to whom had stayed at the hotel over the years. We stayed... More

I stayed for business but would come back again for vacation. The rooms made you feel like you were in a 1940's Fed Astaire film. Large rooms with high ceilings, a sitting area with sofa & chairs, crystal chandelier. The staff was fantastic. Wish the gym was a bit better.

I think the room windows and walls are not thick enough, making it noisy. For the rest of the stay we where very comfortable and had a good service. The continental breakfast needs better eggs and some pancakes.

Being myself in the hospitality business and more specifically a partner in a Starwood hotel, i was totally surprised by the lack of management and supervision at the St Francis hotel! let me start by saying this hotel has a perfect location and very friendly staff and that is about it! When i checked into room 631 i found out... More

After years of travelling to San Francisco for business I decided to stay at this allegedly iconic hotel. However, the reality is that this hotel has seen better days and is very jaded and a little rundown. Rooms are pretty shabby and very small, but on the positive side the beds and bed linen are excellent. And one small pet... More

Hard to put up with considering their hotel in Napa is top notch. First, we had to make more than one request for the workout clothes, and when we made the second request, they didn't have any items in my size. This in spite of the fact we made the request with the reservation two months in advance. Second, you... More
