“Very good hotel w/ amazing views in a nice location”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

I really can't fault this hotel: I stayed here for a conference & meetings in San Francisco and around, and really enjoyed having such a nice place to sleep. The location was my main motivator, as it's right around the corner from the Moscone Center, while also making Union Square, Chinatown and the bayside running paths accessible (they even provide a nice running map for short runs). Everything works as expected: it's clean, service is fast (and the shoe polishing quality is excellent), valets take good care of your car and there's complimentary water. Views are amazing. Only small niggles were staying in a room next to the elevators, which sounded like trams passing in the distance (once you realized what the sound was and got used to it, it really didn't matter), and a certain "soullessness" of a massive hotel complex. Why not 5 stars? Considering the quite high price I'd rather look for a boutique experience, but this was very good.

Well appointed lobby and restaurants; efficient if somewhat spartan Westin workout room. Unbeatable location - walking distance to all major shopping, BART stations, and Yerba Buena center (excellent for kids) and nearby Westfield mall and movie theaters. Nearby car rentals if you need it. Rooms are in great condition and well serviced, though not quite as plush as some international (e.g. Asia) Westin properties. Overall, an excellent stay and option when in SF. Surprisingly good weekend rates.

Room Tip: Higher floors have good east bay views

Westin are a high quality operator world wide and the Market Street premesis in San Francisco is no exception. On check in staff went out of their way to accomodate our needs and gave us an upgrade and free wireless for our stay. Rooms were clean and beds were fantastic. The room was quiet. Tea and coffee facilities were meager however the Starbucks across the road solved this problem.

After reading the mixed review of this property, I was a bit uneasy. But after staying - I'm a fan. I was booked into a Deluxe Room in the newer section and the room was quite nice. Very large room with a very large bathroom. While every room details wasn't what I'd consider 5-star, the overall feel, quality and comforts were - and it was an outstanding stay. Perhaps the most amazing part of my stay was room service - it was lightening fast. I've never experienced such speedy and quality room service. Even on a night when they were swamped and I was told 45-minutes, it was less than 30 and most meals were about 15 or 20 minutes max. The public space was nice and the front-desk staff as well as housekeeping were terrific Love the location and having stayed at a lot of San Francisco hotels, I'd happily return to the Westin St. Francis.

stayed over a weekend vacation in SF. Great choice, even though its mostly a business hotel. Got great weekend rates. Staff was very helpful, location was terrific. Only drawback is $$$ valet parking. We used lots across the street.

Standard Westin Hotel - polished service, good rooms, clean facilities. Located in financial district so quite a distance from the "tourist" end of Fishermans' wharf, Golden Gate etc.. Bit annoying having to pay extra for wifi when you're already paying in excess of $200/night. Similarly, paying for printing in the business centre, high charges for sending faxes etc.. (go across the road to FedEx for 1/10 of the price). Room service menu very limited. Restaurant only adequate (not a problem - hundreds of decent eats within the area)

Stayed at the Westin for 3 nights and found the hotel to be very comfortable. We had a deluxe room which was very clean and had everything we needed inc tea/coffee maker in the room.
When one of the guests in the room next door decided to have aparty in their room at 2am, the staff at recpetion (escpecially the lady wearing glasses and Latin accent who's name escapes me) were excellent and moved us without hesitation and couldn't do enough to help.
The hotel is in an excellent location and you can walk to most of the main attractions within 15-20 mins or so, including Fisherman's Wharf.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room on the mid to upper floors, you get floor to ceiling windows with great 45 deg...
