Westin St Francis

Union Square, San Francisco

Virgin rating

The hotel

Standing proudly on San Francisco’s Union Square, this grand hotel has welcomed guests since 1904. Full of history and classic charm, the original landmark building is complemented by the Tower, where a glass lift (check it out at night when the city is all lit up) will take you to modern, residential-style rooms with Heavenly Beds®. Back in the impressive lobby, enjoy the vintage vibes and spot the cable cars pass outside — experiencing San Francisco could hardly be easier. But before you do, why not pay a visit to the elegant Clock Bar, whose menu changes with the seasons, inspired by a different historical era each time.

My family frequents San Francisco and stay at The St. Francis. We were there in February, and again late March to celebrate my natal day. What was different the last trip was, we were struggling to get reservations at China Live however, this wonderful Concierge, Anthony Rodriguez, not only got us reservations, he sent a receipt to our room reassuring us we had the reservations. But he didn’t stop there, he also sent goodies to our room upon return. Anthony made me feel special. We had experienced minor setbacks during our stay but what we remember is, Anthony made everything right. I would like to recognize Anthony for being exceptional. Thank you Anthony for showing kindness and thoughtfulness. We will see you again soon. Read less

Spreading plenty of Aloha, which you don’t find often in San Francisco! The hotel is absolutely stunning, please grab a room on the 30th floor, well worth it🙏🏼 beds were very comfy, as is the experience with Westin at all times. Bathrooms were incredible, and the view of 🌉 was a cherry on top! Read less

Hotel was very nice. Concierge was amazing, they gave us great advice on local spots to check out. Amazing property. Be careful because it's near Tenderloin area but I always felt safe near the hotel. While checking out I had a strange experience with VALET that ruined my trip. The Valet attendant in the booth embarrassed me in front of my family for no reason. I bit my tongue because I did not want to escalate the situation. He refused to give me my car until I said "Good Morning " to him, even though I said Hello and smiled multiple times. I dont really understand the issue with him but it didn't sit right with me.

The lobby was magical with cherry blossom trees. Although the rooms are a bit tiny, they are luxurious. The bed is amazing. I need whatever mattress topper they have at my house. Just a fabulous experience. Great location as well. Could not recommend more highly.

My stay at the Westin San Francisco was exceptional, largely thanks to Elaine Dai and Jose Rivera. Their impeccable service and attention to detail made my experience truly memorable. I highly recommend this hotel, and I look forward to returning.
