Three on-site restaurants provide a number of options for meals. Bourbon Steak, Michael Mina's newest creation, is a West Coast spin on the traditional steakhouse; the Oak Room offers a more traditional menu. Caruso's is the most casual of the three, offering light snacks and coffee in the lobby lounge.

Location

The Westin St. Francis is the only hotel that actually sits on Union Square. The main building dates back to 1904, and many public areas boast the ornate columns, intricate woodwork and other design elements from this era. Perhaps the property's most famous feature is its Magenta Grandfather Clock, a popular place for people to meet. Today the property comprises two separate buildings: the historic main building and a newer tower. Three on-site restaurants offer a host of dining options.

Rooms

Accommodations are spread across two buildings. In the historic main building, with 629 rooms and 24 suites, standard lodging is accented by crown molding and ornate chandeliers. In the newer tower, with 566 rooms and 35 suites, the experience is more modern. All rooms come standard with flat-screen televisions, signature Westin Heavenly beds, plush robes and safes. Wi-Fi and high-speed Internet access are available in all rooms (fees apply).

Great for a business trip!

I stayed here for 5 days for a business trip. The hotel was very spacious and clean. It had great amenities. Whenever I called down to the concierge for anything they went above and beyond to try to help me. The location is right in the middle of the city and was very close to my client so it was very convenient. A lot of the places I wanted and needed to go to was walkable. The restaurant downstairs was very good. I had a pre-fixe dinner which was delicious so I would definitely recommend that. I also went to Morton's steakhouse which was very close to the hotel and walkable. Check in and check out was effortless and easy. All of my cab drivers knew this hotel as it seems to be a popular one so that was easy too.

Excellent Hotel for PRICE and Location

Excellent Hotel for PRICE and Location. If you are looking to explore the shopping, food and fantastic art galleries such as Martin Lawrence and Weinstein this is your place. The hotel's heyday was probably a half century ago, as indicated by it historic, yet well preserved interiors. The rooms are small, but stylish. Location is difficult to beat. I have stayed here on many occasions and I always enjoyed it!

Great Stay. Awesome Location.

I was in town for a wedding at the Westin. This place is all about location. I would stay in the tower section of this hotel. It is the more modernized part of the hotel.

Fun times in San Fran

From check in to check out, the entire experience was great! Unfortunately, the shower handle in our room broke, but the staff responded immediately and fixed it without a problem. Great times!
