Far exceeded my expectations!”

The Westin St. Francis far exceeded my expectations. I stayed in a 1-bedroom suite and it was HUGE with 2 bathrooms, 2 closets, 2 refrigerators, a living room area, and 3 TVs. The bathrooms were beautiful and well equipped with large pump bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel. The staff were all extremely helpful and went out of their way to help us, from the cleaning staff, to the front desk, to the concierge desk. We were on the 12th floor overlooking Union Square and you could just look outside check out all the sights in the area. The trolley pick up and drop off is right in front of the hotel, and hotel provided 2 free trolley tickets worth $8 each. They also gave us two free reusable insulated water bottles, and near the front desk there is a free filtered water dispenser which came in extremely handy! We didn’t have to buy water our whole trip! They even provide free plastic bottled water upon check in. Other perks include two tickets for free wine tasting at Macy’s which is a short half-block away., and two tickets for 2 hours of a bicycle rental or an e-bike rental for one hour. There is a bike rental place right outside the hotel, or you could go to the bike rental place down at Fisherman’s Wharf near Ghirardelli Square. Plus you get $30 a day to spend at any of the hotel’s restaurants. Another huge perk is the convenience of the location. Aside from the trolley that will take you around the city and down to Fisherman’s Wharf, everything is in walking distance, generally within a few blocks like Chinatown, Trader Joe’s, and Starbucks, just to name a few. I’m so glad I stayed at the Westin St. Francis. It might be pricier than other places, but it is worth every penny!

Marriott influence!”

The St. Francis is a SF landmark, right at Union Square. Many travelers might find the hotel gracious and comfortable, but to me, just more Marriott greed. Read the funeral print about the added "destination charge": $30 a day is added to your bill, and must be spent within the hotel or forfeited. That means buying grossly inflated fancy food and beverages, which most guests do at the concessions at reception level where prices are hard to determine, but very high even for basics. Really another undignified money grab by Marriott. My room is of decent size, but there's only one armchair, no drawer in bedside stand. Bathroom peculiarly cramped, with very limited space for toiletries, and not a single grab bar in shower. The bedding is so lavishly cushiony it is like drowning in marshmallow sauce. If your back is not a fan of ultra-soft mattress, this is not the place for you. Duvets suffocatingly heavy. Some may find this luxurious, but it's tough even to get into bed. All in all, Marriott avarice buried under cushy bedding. Ugh.

Acceptable”

The hotel is too old. Main Entrance from Union Sq is closed. Currently under renovation, and was not informed in it website, nor in Agoda.

ALWAYS MY FAVORITE”

There is nothing like the grand history of this hotel. Simply looking at the photos in the lobby is worth a visit. Pop in to the clocktower bar to continue a decades long tradition. The true standout of the hotel this visit is Faiza at the front desk who patiently listened to my history of visiting this hotel and working up the hill at another iconic hotel. He went to great lengths to ensure our stay was a wonderful one and it was so appreciated. Because of Faiza my loyalty to this venue will continue despite some downfalls of the upkeep of this establishment in general. My loyalty had begun to become a thing of the past because the management company who owns this hotel must not have an appreciation of this hotel. It is a great stay don't get me wrong, but it should be restored to its' iconic grand luxary destination. Renovating the main landmark building in the past decade was a start along with a modern overhaul of the clocktower bar. Here are my suggestion for a return, that if the money was spent, surely it would be made back ensuring the longevity of this historical building from the gold rush era. 1. Entice new fresh, unique stores in the store fronts. 2. Make over the lobby area, specifically the main entrance. Employ a doorman for goodness sake and keep the doors CLEAN and not sticky, replace the red carpet and spiff up the window displays. 3. Add a restraunt /bar in the old Compass Room. Offer high TEA and make it something grand where people will dress up. Train servers and all employees to offer the type of high end service which use to be the norm. Reward them for it in compensation to live in San Francisco. 4. Participate in local government to undo the demise of our beautiful city that Gavin Newsom has destroyed with his greed for money and status (sorry Gavin, but you did). I do love this hotel and stay every Thanksgiving and Christmas. There is a wonderful gingerbread house and big christmas tree up each year.
