NYE 2009

Nice clean, old style room - small, but comfortable enough for us. Thin walls, though - you can hear everything going on anywhere near you. It was NYE so the noise went on past 4 AM, could have been a bit quieter but hey, its all in good fun. Out-of-acceptable price range for food within the hotel, but anything you want is a short walk away.

Great location

The St. Francis Westin was in a great location and worth the price. The room was comfortable and the staff was very helpful and friendly.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

There are stores everywhere. Fishermans wharf, china town, museums and so much more was very local. The hotel is quite central.

Unbeatable location, first class service

The Westin St. Francis is located in the very heart of San Francisco: from there it is possible to reach within a walking distance most of its more famous locations, not to mention the shopping area that surrounds it. The hotel itself is a landmark of the city's experience: a beautiful historical building that contributes to its fascinating aura. The rooms and the service are definitely high class!

Excellent service and great location.

The hotel, the staff and the surroundings captured the holiday spirit. This is a historic, but updated, hotel that is close to great shopping; theaters, exccellent restaurants and embodies the San Francisco experience.

Fabulous Hotel, fabulous location

this hotel was in a great location...shopping galore, good restaurants, cable cars, easily accessible. The concierge was wonderful in giving city information and driving directions. The coffee and danish bar in the hotel was great. One problem was, we had booked two rooms, one with 2 double beds and one with a queen or king size bed. We got 2 rooms with 2 double beds. The hotel was booked so we could not change. That was the only downer.

Historic and Posh

Perfect location to visit the city of San Fran.Excellent service and prompt response for necessities. If staying in the older portion of the hotel, be prepared to hear everything, including the water running thru the pipes. You may need to recall for the maids to clean the room to your standards.Clean sheets have to be requested. You may be dissapointed with the city view.It may be the brick on the building next door.Over all,an excellent place to stay.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Right across the street are places with much less food and drink prices then in the hotel. Convient to Walgreens and Rite Aid for those incidentals and alchol for the room

great location for union square

the location is outstanding as it overlooks union square. a room facing union square is a must... snacking is expensive... the michael mina restaurant is located in this hotel and is great to have this dining experience at least once - way too expensive.

Nice-great location!

The Westin Saint Francis is a beautiful hotel! The room was very comfortable. The location was perfect and close to everything. The only downside is that the hotel staff was not very friendly. Otherwise, I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

My review of The Westin St. Francis

The hotel is large and a little bit confusing - ie. they have 3 entrances and one must be specific if you arrange to meet someone at either and entrance or a lobby, but overall quite charming. The rooms were comfortable with plenty of closet space, nice shelves in the bathrooms - etc.
