“Decent Westin”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

I have stayed in fancier Westin's, but this one was OK. Hotel was in a great location, nice staff, great facilities, nice gym. The room I got wasn't as clean as it should have been, but the staff was overly accommodating.

I recently stayed here for a 3 night business conference. The hotel staff were great, but I thought my room was actually below average for a Westin. The decor was mediocre, my bathroom could have been cleaner and most of the furniture was a little worn. My bed was comfy. I'm not sure I would stay here again based on the per night value since Westin is expensive.

Pluses:
Westin is located very conveniently for all kinds of transport in San Francisco and it is basically in the middle of all the shopping. We had breakfast at La Boulange on Mission St every morning which offered good Organic Coffee and various pastries and sandwiches with free jams and spreads. Westfield Food Court is handy for close-by lunch/dinner options.
The staff is really nice and helpful.
The minuses:
One of the beds was not comfortable at all (we stayed at Sheraton before here and it was really Heavenly, as advertised).
There was a barking dog in the room next door on the 1st night, which was annoying. I do not really like the idea of sharing rooms with pets anyway.
The duvet did not look very clean, and it was 'sandwiched' between two pieces of sheets, rather than being enclosed properly in a duvet cover.
The hotel claims to be 'green' and runs promotions for that, but they had 5 pillows on each bed! (10 pillowcases for two beds!) Such a waste.
Overall, it was an OK stay and I would still consider going back if it was reasonably priced.

I love Westin because of the great beds. In this particular one is the people who work there. Our room is in the 22nd floor and it has great view of the city. The windows are floor to ceiling and We had a great view of the city. The beds are great abd the room is bigger than usual. I would highly recommedn this hotel if you are visiting San Francisco

This was my fourth stay at this hotel over several years and my first as an SPG property owner. After comparing rates to others in the area such as Courtyard by Marriott, I realized it was worth paying a little more for the Westin, taking into account the automatic SPG room upgrade and comped internet service. Plus, it was about the only downtown hotel I could find that had rooms with two queen beds for the three of us. We paid $232/night.

The rooms are what you would expect from a Westin: comfortable, well appointed and with all of the necessary amenities, although if there was a hair dryer I couldn't find it. Fully stocked mini-bar. Floor-to-ceiling windows. The water pressure was good. Plenty of hot water. The "heavenly bed" was not as heavenly as I remembered it. Maybe it was because there were two queens, instead of a king that I've had on the previous occasions, but the mattresses felt firmer than I recall.

The window treatments provided full blackout at night. The room was quiet, except when children across the hall were being children. The internet signal in the room was reasonably reliable, a definite improvement since my last visit. The buffet breakfast was $27, typical of a major market downtown hotel and the quality and selection was excellent. The fitness center has a few cardio machines (some of which can't be used by tall people because of the low ceiling) and the weight area is lame, with only two machines and a rack of dumbbells. We were there during the last weekend of June while some remodeling was happening and the business center was closed, however they had set up a computer workstation in the lobby, which was suitable for printing boarding passes but not for working. The front desk staff was courteous and helpful. The location is convenient for the Market St. streetcars and subway, and fast food and casual dining restaurants, including a CPK across the street and a Super Duper Burger (yum!) a couple minutes walk.

Our room was quite large by SF standards! We had 2 queen beds and a pretty city view from the 26th floor. The location was great- less than a 10 min. walk to Union Square. Felt safe walking back to the hotel at 11:00 pm. We would stay there again!

We recently stayed at the Westin Market St. for a business trip that we took the whole family to. The hotel is just a few blocks from everything in Union Square and an easy walk. There is lots to do in the immediate area. The property has a nice patio for outdoor dinning and happy hour.
