Timeless yet modern, The Westin St. Francis San Francisco on Union Square has been offering guests a warm welcome and an enriching, restorative stay since its opening on March 21, 1904. With its turn-of-the-20th-century European style, our downtown San Francisco hotel blends the elegance of oak-paneled restaurants and the stately grandeur of the lobby with a $45 million reinvention of the Landmark Building guest rooms, ushering in a new chapter for this storied destination. At this standout among San Francisco hotels on Union Square, you can host events in venues and ballrooms where the finest big bands once played. Recharge in elegant rooms, many featuring chandeliers and marble bathrooms, with modern touches like Heavenly Beds and Enseo Smart TV systems. As the only hotel on Union Square, SF, it is close to the Financial District and Moscone Convention Center, and with cable cars just outside our front doors, we are at the intersection of the glorious past and vibrant present of this incredible city.

    Another great stay at Westin St. Francis

    Same as before — staff are very professional and accommodating. $25 amenity fee is a good value — nice reusable metal water bottles, a few free tickets, for bikes, etc., a complimentary cocktail, plus $25 in food and beverage credits a day. Café Rito is a good breakfast in a pinch but Oak Room breakfast buffet is very pleasant. Clock Bar cocktails are awesome. Rooms are spotless (occasional scuff mark aside)

    What a fun week!

    Fabulous week at the Westin St Francis. It's been a long time since I have been in a hotel that truly knows the meaning of customer service. Natty took care of us at check in and made sure to find us a nice room with a great view. We also spoke with Jeff at the concierge desk - a true gentleman who has a passion for San Francisco. We ended up spending more time than we intended at the Clock Bar because Jeremy was so friendly. I witnessed the employees being kind and patient with all guests. Our room was in the tower and overlooked Union Square. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Housekeeping did an excellent job. Although it was foggy most nights, we did see fireworks from the Giant's game and the beautiful skyline. We were there during Union Square in Bloom, and the lobby was always filled with colorful flowers and smelled amazing. There were so many restaurants and attractions within walking distance or an easy ride on the bus/trolley or cable car. Minor downsides: the elevators can take forever if it is busy, and there is no full-service dining after breakfast. We are already thinking about going back to San Francisco!
