Perfect location for restaurants & shopping
I've stayed in about 5+ hotels in San Francisco and the Westin St. Francis by far has the best locations. Also, the rooms (we stayed in the deluxe king in the Tower building) is very spacious compared to other hotels in the area. Downside is the room service food. (spent $60 ish for some soup and a medium pizza.) While they have plenty of options before 10:30p.m. there are better quality options outside of the hotel that are walking distance, which is great if you can withstand walking through the chilly San Francisco nights. Another downside is the bathrooms are pretty outdated with your commercial-style toilet. Overall great hotel, with fantastic views and the other guests, seem to be families and/or couples. I've heard complaints of thin walls, but I've slept great. The staff is friendly. Would stay again when we want to be in Union Square.
