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.

Just passing through

After spending a long day exploring SF and seeing the Blue Angels for Fleet Week, it was a luxury to return to such a comfortable, spacious, and friendly hotel. The concierge staff were extremely helpful with suggestions and directions. The room was impeccable and provided everything we needed. Great location! Attractions were within walking distance, or you can hop on a bus or cable car.

My review of The Westin San Francisco Market Street

Hotel staff was very friendly and accomodating. I did not use any of the hotel facilities as I had a late check in and did not use the facilities in the morning. The hotel was great in a beautiful area and had great views. I would definitely stay there again.

Close to Moscone center, difficult to maneuver through the city unless used to it. Many places to eat within walking distance.

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.

FRIENDLY ATMOSPHERE

The only issue we had was with the bartender on sunday Morning (08/31/08). While attempting to purchase coffee at the bar area of the dining room, we asked the bartender if the coffee was free, his respond to us was, read the sign, it $4.00. We where taken aback to this very unfriendly and curt respond. Fortunately, a female staff noticed us and help us with out coffee. It was not the cost of the coffee but how we where responded to.

First room was very small and cramped. Desk offered an upgrade without our complaining. We were mover to 36th Floor in a Starwood Prefered Room (I'm Starwood Gold) and it was great.

Great location and room

Arrived at around 4PM to check in. Check in staff was not friendly and seem to be unwilling to answer any questions I had about the rooms. Valet staff was very understanding helpful, and checking out was a breeze. Will stay here next time if the price gets lowered, the price point of the rooms didn't match the quality of the accommodation. Hotel rather old and rooms need an update especially the bathroom.

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

Don't bother searching for street parking. Valet parking in the garage is the safest in the streets of SF, cars with out of state license plates are a BIG temptation for car thieves.

The Westin

The only thing that bothered us about the hotel was the smell. There was a nasty smell in there when we first got there and after it had been cleaned as well. It was a dirty smell.

Perfect location for shopping

the hotel is located at the heart of city, there are lots of nice restaurants around, and especially is convenient for shopping! The room is clean, but a little bit small. it has a HUGE restroom though!
