The Westin St. Francis is a great hotel located right at Union Square. It is classic and elegant, the staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms are spacious with comfortable beds. I prefer rooms in the Tower and the view from the elevator and room is fabulous.

Everything we wanted to see was within a twenty minute walk. The hotel is great and they provided just about everything you would need considering the rooms do not have their own bathrooms. We would definitely stay here again.

The Mark Hopkins is a nice hotel in a very good location. It’s safe and clean but not really one of the higher end places one can choose. The Top of the Mark has a great view but it’s decor and overall “vibe” seems to put off the feel that it was something special long ago. The furnishings makes ...

4.0/5 (4,298 reviews)

Excellent refurbished hotel in the happening part of central San Francisco, close to China Town, and with trolley access to the wharf. The only negative was the lack of a view from our room and the surprise charge of $56.00 + tax for parking for one day.

Cramped quarters but the bed was comfortable and the shower is nice. The bathroom is tiny as is the bedroom itself however I think everything in San Francisco is! The hotel is very old but cute and well kept. You can hear some noise from above and in the hallway as the walls and doors aren’t completely ...
