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. Wi-Fi and high-speed Internet access are available in all rooms (fees apply). Pets welcome (fees apply).

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.

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

That's good stuff

The front desk is very helpful but getting the calls through to the front desk seem to be a bit difficult. The gym is the best around and the location is great.

Great location!

The Westin Market Street was clean, modern, and had fabulous views. The room was perfect, the bed dreamy: I slept like a baby! The staff was friendly, and the bar made an excellent martini. Best of all, walking distance to Union square shopping. I took BART from SFO and the walk was only 1 block...the location can't be beat if you want to be in the Union Square area.

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!

Fabulous Hotel

I ate out many times at great places, met some friends and ate Indian cuisine one evening nearby. The Westin, formerly the Argent, has a great outside dining area in the late summer and fall. The wait staff was superb and the bartender knows his/her drinks.

Excellent location with spacious rooms

This hotel was very luxurious and tucked away right in a corner on Market Street, no more than 2 mins away from Union Square. The room was very spacious with huge and extremely comfortable beds. My dog was very well accepted,and we had an excellent time. Street parking was ample and that allowed us to save $50/day on valet parking. The only drawback was that there was no free wi-fi internet, and internet usage was $7 at the business office. A little strange since there are alot of business people who seem to reside here. Overall, we were very pleased and would definitely stay here again.
