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

Classy and excellent service

My cousin and I went to a Twilight convention hosted by the Westin Market St. The hotel accomodated us exquisitely. I felt a sense of partnership in the way they were so welcoming to convention guests. Likewise they kept the rooms clean, remained attentive and answered any questions I had.

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.

The Westin Way

A last-minute reservation in SFO proved a nice surprise. The room was small but very comfortable, and the clerk was able to find one with a good view as well. The concierge recommended excellent French restaurants nearby and the staff was very helpful and friendly. The only suggestion would be to have a basic continental breakfast (tea/coffee/toast, etc.) included in the room price. This is a European standard, which is sadly lacking in most of US upper-tier hotels. One can always step out to a neighbourhood cafe for breakfast, but that's not the point when one stays at a good hotel like this one.

Westin on Market

The bar closed at 11:00 on a Friday! For people who are in town for theatre, that's too early

Good location and beautiful view

The room had large picture windows that provided a beautiful view of the city below. We appreciated the street car stop just down the block that took us to Fisherman's Wharf.

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.
