In the middle of everything

Our first trip to San Francisco won't be our last! We loved the Westin St. Francis at Union Square. It was a beautiful hotel with excellent service and amenities. Our room was great, with a fantastic view of the city and the Bay beyond. When we return to S.F., we will definitely stay here.

Great central location. Easy to navigate anywhere on public transportation from this hotel. A nice oasis in a busy city!

If you are going to be touring around all the sites of the city, get a MUNI passport to ride all forms of public trans. Saves money and time!

It is the people that make it the BEST!

Most hotels have a Concierge The St. Francis has people that want to help you have the best possible experence in their city. The front desk has people walking around looking for issues and are extremly helpful. The location is perfect for businees or pleasure and the romms are comfortable and clean.

Westin

Location was perfect! Rooms were a bit small and the beds weren't as comfortable as I've had at other Westin locations but not awful by any means. The hotel is right in front of one of the Cable Car stops and you are within walking distance to almost everything. Parking was a bit complicated but that's to be expected in San Fran.

John's Grill had great reviews but their menu selection was extremely limited - it was a bit of a disappointment...

Absolutely best location!

The hotel makes up the West side of Union Square, so when you walk out, you're on Powell St looking at Union Square with cable cars going by. It's absolutely the best location. From the 28th floor, I looked out over Union Square, surrounding city and the bay beyond. The room was surprisingly quiet for being in the heart of the city - you couldn't hear anything. I had to open the window to hear the trolley cars. You are literally surrounded by the best restaurants in the area ... Morton's Steakhouse, Daily Grill, Scala's Bistro, Restaurant Santorini, Sears Fine Foods, etc. And of course, all of the shopping is right there in Union Square. The hotel was very elegant with a upscale Clock Lounge (try the drink, Sophia's Kiss with lavendar). It was only a block or two away from Market St, so I took the Bart to/from the airport for $8.10 each way. Another tip ... it's only $11 plus tip to go to Fisherman's Warf by taxi ... the trolley is $5 each way per person, so it's fun to do the cable car at least once, but don't think it's cheaper than taxi.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Don't go to San Fran without seeing Alcatraz. It's worth it. Miur Woods is also nice and so is the wine tour - I would recommend both. Civic Center is worth seeing ... city hall is amazing. And of course, you've got to see the seals on Pier 39. Enjoy!
