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

Formerly known as the Argent, the Westin San Francisco Market Street 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
Rooms

Accommodations -- 676 rooms, including 24 suites -- feature sweeping city views and floor-to-ceiling windows through which to enjoy them. Rooms come standard with flat-screen televisions, signature Westin Heavenly beds, mini bars and in-room safes. Most of the corner units are suites.

Features

The Westin San Francisco Market Street abuts a public park that sits between San Francisco's Contemporary Jewish Museum and the Yerba Buena Center for the Performing Arts. The Moscone Convention Center is within walking distance, as well.

The hotel has received numerous awards, including the AAA Four-Diamond Award.

Grab a bite at Ducca, which specializes in Northern Italian cuisine and has a boisterous bar scene on weekend nights.

Unbeatable location for the price!

Great location, walking distance to Union Square and the Cable Car station, not to mention there are restaurants all around so if you're hungry you don't have to go a distance.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Walk to the Cable Car station on Market and buy the 3 day pass or depending how long you'll be staying, it's much more easier to get around on the Cable Cars and bus transportation than driving if you don't know your way around. Also, if you have an iPhone USE THE MAPS APP, it was very helpful for me and my boyfriend.

Great hotel

Service was excellent, hotel was beautiful. The location was great. We walked to union square (great shopping) and walked to china town from our hotel. Warf is about 1 1/2 miles away. I would have walked but with 2 small kids.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

So, the cost to valet is 15 dollars a night plus 40 dollar fee and we had a large vehicle (SUV) so that increased the cost to 15 dollars...a night! 70 dollars a night...yikes. Thankfully, the valet suggested that we park the car ourselves in a city structure (very close) for 25 a day. Much better deal!

Great Location & Price!!

The location of the hotel was great. We couldn't decide whether to stay near the Wharf or in the City. So happy we chose the city! A must is to experience & take cable car to Wharf, then go to Buena Vista for the best Irish Coffee! In the city we went shopping, shopping, shopping! Our friends recommended the Daily Grill. We went there 3x's. Happy Hour dailly from 3pm - 6pm. Great drinks & appetizers. Dinner's are delicious! Bartender the best! Ate the best breakfast next door at an Irish Pub. The hostess at the restaurant located in hotel was very rude. We refused to eat there but we didn't let that spoil our trip.

Great combo trip-business/personal

The hotel staff were excellent and the location was perfect. The hotel is right off of Market Street, close to the public transit, within walking distance to Union Square and the piers. The concierge were helpful, providing us with useful info of places to visit. Overall, this was great business trip mixed with a little personal.

Great 25 year wedding anniversary stay

If we have the opportunity to return to San Francisco, we would stay at the same hotel. Everyone was very helpful with questinos we had, especially given this was our first visit to SF and the accomodations were top notch. The hotel is centralized to many of the local attractions. Additionaly,there was close access to the various modes of transportation and we used most of them (especailly the cable car system and buses)to get around; but we also did some walking. We had a blast; it would be hard not to in this city.
