The hotel is in Union Square, the famous tram passes right on front of it! The room was in the Landmark building (vintage), pretty decent, a bit outdated still clean. Unfortunately in this specific room the bathroom was small and the floor carpet a bit outdated. The hotel's history is also interesting, being rebuilt after the earthquake in 1906. The... More

Great location. Expensive hotel but worth every penny. Rooms clean and spacious. The check in was longer than we would normally wait. The bar areas were very busy but we always managed to get a seat. Recommend you stay here just watch you're penny's.

The hotel is located in one of the busiest parts of town. Big name shops (of every kind) in every direction. Food spots everywhere and minutes from all the major attractions. As for the hotel. Beautiful historic design with that classic Westin service. Two employees stood out and deserve major credit. Abril the front desk agent and Marvin the bellman.... More

Stayed here for my 21st birthday and it was fab. The hotel is in a great location right on Union Square. The room was a good size and was cleaned regularly. Staff were really friendly and helpful and recommended places for us to eat. Would stay here again!

To be fair there was nothing dreadfully wrong with this hotel, but nothing seriously right either - perhaps my expectations were too high. I picked this hotel primarily for its location (which is good), and I had heard of it before... It got off to a bad start when the receptionist couldn't tell us the opening hours of the restaurant.... More

I cannot speak highly enough of the Westin and it's staff. After a very trying day at airports, it was a relief to arrive here and be looked after. The room was lovely , the food exceptional, the bed comfortable, so I was well and truly ready the next morning for a full day shopping!! The Westin is right in... More

Very comfortable and specious room on the SPG high floor with great city view. Comfy bed. Specious bathroom. Big wardrobe. Very clean. Starbucks coffee in the room. Good speed of the WiFi. Delicious breakfast and good quality of food. Recommend for long or short stay.

The standard rooms are spotlessly clean, of decent size and the beds are soft and comfy. Unfortunately, the bathroom is quite small and the room’s atmosphere is rather heavy and oppressive without any hint of a feel good vibe. The hotel itself nurtures a classic and extravagant design concept of the early 20th century. Unfortunately, a lot of the interior... More

If you want to be in the tourist area this hotel is in a great location. The lobby and downstairs are very nice also. The rooms are horrible. I have the highest status with SPG and got "upgraded" to a room right next to the elevator making noise all night including the people in the hallway. If felt like the... More

My experience at Westin was not the best. I have 4 negative points for this hotel: 1)we first stayed in the old wing where the bathroom in the room didn't have a lock on the door nor an exhaust fan. 2)I ordered room service and it was just a shower cap and it took about 1 hour 15 minutes for...
