The Westin St. Francis San Francisco on Union Square

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love This Hotel

  • Built in 1904, the Westin St. Francis San Francisco is a historic landmark with a colorful past, including celebrity antics and political scandals 
  • This AAA 4-Diamond hotel overlooks Union Square and the cable cars stop right out front
  • The Landmark Building features guest rooms that have recently been remodeled


The historic landmark building that is the Westin St. Francis sits in San Francisco's trendy Union Square and has been an iconic structure since it opened in 1904. The enormous, bustling lobby features sleek marble columns, crown molding and an iconic grandfather clock. Famous icons and personalities such as Charlie Chaplin and Queen Elizabeth have stayed at the hotel.

Guest rooms are divided between two buildings. The Landmark building dates back to the early 20th century and has a more classic design, with high ceilings, crown molding, chandeliers and dark woodwork. Accommodations there are typically on the petite side, but are currently being updated. While many rooms are finished, the hotel is continuing to shut down two floors in this building at a time to do the updates and expects all of these rooms to be completed by the end of April 2018. Recent additions include contemporary abstract artwork, a 37-inch flat screen TV, and high speed Internet access. Rooms in the 32-story Tower building tend to be larger and have a more modern aesthetic, with grand bay windows, many with views of the city. All guest rooms feature the signature Westin Heavenly Beds. 

The hotel's restaurant; The Oak Room, serves up classic American fare in a more classic space. Clock Bar is located in the lobby and features an intimate lounge. Many aspects of the experience from the style, name, ingredients and glassware of the cocktails evoke a time and place in history from 1904 San Francisco to 1920’s Paris. Cable cars stop right outside the hotel, making it easy to see the rest of the city, and proves better than bringing a car as parking here is pricey and driving within the city can be frustrating.
