Great trip to San Francisco

We had a great experience--the room was in the older historic part of the hotel but it was just fine. We expecially appreciated the nearness of the hotel to the cable cars, other transportation and many other things we wanted to see or do. Great.

great location

Hotel is in the middle of everything. Great location. Easy to access public transportation. Many tourist attractions within walking distance. Nice clean room, very very tiny, and older so noisy pipes when water is being used.

San Francisco stay

Wonderful location, beautiful building, right on Union Square. Stay here if you're going to San Francisco, and wear a flower in your hair. Dinner at Michael Mina is fantastic on the lower floor of the hotel, and the view is amazing from the tower.

Fantastic Honeymoon in a great location!

The Westin St. Francis was a great hotel if you want to stay in the heart of San Francisco! It was close to BART and great restaurants and shopping. The people at the hotel were very friendly. The smaller rooms in the older section of the hotel were very charming but adequate in size for the stay...it was a great experience and if I ever get back there I will for sure stay here again!

Great choice

Great location at the heart of Union Square. Good service, clean rooms, convenient access to cable cars. Only downside is the streets are rather noisy and you hear it in the rooms.

Had a fantastic time at this hotel. My one complaint would be the fact that there is no pool.

You are only a short walk to many great attractions and sights...or it is just a short right to the Muni Trains which are inexpensive and fast!
