Sophisticated urban oasis with sweeping views in SoMa's Museum Row

Formerly known as the Argent, the The Park Central San Francisco has been rebranded over the course of the last decade. The result: a sophisticated, urban oasis in the middle of what locals call Museum row, a stretch that includes the Yerba Buena Center for the Performing Arts and the Contemporary Jewish Museum. Both the lobby and guest rooms are sleek and modern; art in public areas is from Roy Lichtenstein and other iconic artists. Ducca, the on-site restaurant, serves contemporary Northern Italian food and has a lively bar scene on weekends.

Highlights
  • Impressive array of public art by artists such as David Hockney and Roy Lichtenstein
  • Within walking distance of Moscone Convention Center
  • Cocktails and Italian cuisine at Ducca, the on-site restaurant
  • Complimentary guided walking tours

Tryst

I loved the lobby and the bar, the staff was really friendly and helpful. The floor to ceiling windows were rad. The room was pretty small and very regular for the price I paid.

Holiday trip

For my purposes the location of this hotel is very good, close to BART and all of my other needs. The hotel itself is standard issue Westin. Nothing great but you know what to expect. The only big negative was an elevator problem during my first day there. 2 of the 5 cars went down and it was a nightmare. It took 12 minutes one time to get a ride down. But, of course, that could have just been a rare problem. I have no way of knowing for sure.

Great Place to stay in S.F.

We spent 4 niights in an off time and had a great hotel rate. Excellent location and easy in and out valet service if you have a car. One block from Peets coffee or La Boulange for breakfast.

Wedding Weekend in San Fran

Just be careful as hotel used my debit card to "hold" funds in the amount equal to my entire hotel stay -- in this case 3 nights! Even though the entire trip was prepaid the hotel held these funds through the entirety of our trip. Other than than, clean room, good location.

Amazing trip

The moment we arrived we knew we would have a great stay. Fruit infused water was available as soon as we walked in and there were no lines to check in. The gentleman who checked us in offered us a late check out and was very pleasant. Great location and a clean room.
