I am a Marriott Bonvoy Titanium and have stayed at hundreds of different Marriott properties. The Park Central is an odd-ball in the Marriott portfolio. It used to be a Westin, but is no longer a part of any of Marriott's big brands. It seems to be an independent hotel under the Marriott banner.

I am a Marriott Bonvoy Titanium and have stayed at hundreds of different Marriott properties. The Park Central is an odd-ball in the Marriott portfolio. It used to be a Westin, but is no longer a part of any of Marriott's big brands. It seems to be an independent hotel under the Marriott banner. This hotel was last renovated in 2007 when it become a Westin, and still shows signs of the typical Westin design. The rooms are signature Westin style, without the fragrance wafting through the air, the toiletries or the Heavenly Beds. The age of the hotel is showing. In my room, the door had scratches all over the outside and severe rusting in the shower. The lobby is very dreary and could use some loving updates. Having said that, the hotel was exceptionally clean. In this age of Covid, I appreciated the hotel's dedication to cleanliness and it felt sparkling clean everywhere. The staff were helpful and friendly throughout my stay. Due to the pandemic, the gym was closed, so I can't review that. Also, the restaurant was closed. The hotel did offer take-away bites from down stairs during the evening hours. However, the location of this hotel is ideal for exploring. It is really in the center of everything. I found endless options of places to eat. If you are a tourist, this is a great hotel for its central location. I can recommend this hotel, and would stay here again myself. It is a typical, big box, business travel hotel, so don't expect much character. And just be prepared for a hotel that needs some updating (maybe some mood lighting in the lobby to make it a bit like a boutique hotel). I'll probably be back eventually, but not before my stay at the JW Marriott next week. Read less

My room was clean - I had no qualms about completely relaxing - and it was lovely with a great view. Sara who checked me in was polished, friendly and knowledgeable. She remembered me, and that meant a lot.

This was my second time back in at The Park Central San Francisco, and it's still a great value hotel. Sara at the front desk is fantastic and understood my preferences for a quieter room on a higher floor, and always made sure my stay was comfortable. Sleek interior, great service, and very comfy beds. Highly recommended!
