“Love, love, love!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

We pulled up to the hotel close to sunset, and were immediately greeted. I asked the gentleman about things we must do, since we were only in town for one day, so he pulled out a map and proceeded to tell me exactly what was must see. Then he told my husband and I if we wanted to, we could likely make a pretty good round of the city before the sun set completely, so took charge of our bags and off we went! When we got back to the hotel, they were able to upgrade us to a corner room...and wow at the view! We had two walls of windows in the room, and loved looking out over the city. The room was immaculate and the service was fantastic! We could not have asked for a better stay!

Room Tip: Even though the corner room has a queen size bed instead of king, the two walls of windows makes it...

I've stayed here about 5 times for business, once for a week. The location is convenient and the rooms are fine. Room service is okay, but boring, just the standard salmon, chicken, steak that are okay but nothing special.

The biggest problem I've had is with the room assignment. I usually pay extra for a larger room and a better view. Once, I got a queen handicapped room with no view. The claimed it was an upgrade since it was on the club floor, but it was cramped. They explain the can't guarantee room type, but it seems to me that if they are willing to charge me extra when I reserve a corner suite with a king bed I should get that.

Valet parking it's 50 dollars which seems high for what you get. I know it's a city, but it take 15-25 minutes to get your car, and you leave a voice mail to tell them you want your car because no one answers.

We were planning to spend a full day sightseeing in San Francisco en route to HKG but due to bad weather and some flight delayed, we were there for some hours only. Checked in around 7pm and surprised that they didn't notice that it was my Husband's birthday (after the front staff lady asked for both of our passports) not that I care but we were in Bangkok 6 nights past his birthday and they sent out a birthday cake to our room! The lobby was modern & sleek. The room was spacious, clean, comfy bed, bathroom was simpe, nothing to brag about for being a Westin.
The location from and to the airport (SFO) is convenient. We took Super Shuttle coming in and we were on the first drop off route and felt bad for the last 6 pax that was staying in the Fisherman's area (traffic that night was horrendous as it was Friday night around 6pm) and we tried the BARTback to the airport that morning since we only have 1 luggage, recommended , user friendly & super fast. We went to have breakfast at a Mel's Drive-ins, when you get out of the lobby, head southeast on 3rd street towards Jessie st and turn right on Mission St,it would be about 0,2miles on the left.

The Westin Market street is a very nice hotel in the prime location of downtown San Francisco. Staff were very friendly, personable and attentive to all of our needs during the stay. City tour bus stops right outside the front entrance. Union Street shopping is within walking distance. Great stay overall.

I stayed at the Westin San Francisco Market Street for a conference. I am going to contact the conference coordinators and complain about their selection of this Westin. The location was great but the hotel charges extra for EVERYTHING! Local calls - at least $1 (it's not the price, it's the principle), internet - $15 PER DAY! and no shuttle service to the airport... I would just think if you are spending $200-$300/night on a room the least they can offer you is free internet and local phone calls. Otherwise, of course, it was clean and the bed was comfortable.

Room Tip: upper floors offer great views. Avoid rooms near the elevator - ESPECIALLY if on a lower floor.

With high ceilings, and a sleek, modern shine to it, the hotel immediately delivers a good impression. Walk past the reception area and you'll encounter one of the lounges--a chic place to rest those weary toesies while sipping on a pricey pomegranate martini. Even more luxuriously restful are the beds--one of the most comfy I've ever laid in. This place is not cheap, but worth it if you want to treat yourself.

This is a great business hotel. Easy to get to no matter where you are in the city. A great staff with a lot of local knowledge and a decent price for a Bay Area hotel.

I have stayed here a couple of times (along with other Westin property in the city) and I really like the "total package" of the hotel. Sure the parking is pricey - but when was the last time you stayed in a downtown hotel and did not pay through the roof for parking?!

The shinning element of the hotel is the location. You are literally within walking distances of a number of great restaurants, local scenes and frequented business meeting locations.
