The Westin St. Francis is 4.1 miles away from Golden Gate Park.
Dating back to the early 1900s, the Westin St. Francis is a hotel with a legendary reputation for offering one of the best stays in San Francisco. Situated across from Union Square, the hotel is within close proximity to world class-shopping, restaurants, and theatres. Guests enjoy the convenience of a cable car stop right outside the front door, and the Financial District, Chinatown, and Moscone Convention Center is only a short walk from the hotel.
Features, such as marble columns, gilded ceilings and crystal chandeliers, greet guests in the lobby. However, it is the outdoor glass elevator that is most likely the most popular draw of the hotel. The Westin St. Francis is also a hit with traveling families, as children (aged 11 and under) receive a travel-themed Westin Kids Club backpack filled with goodies upon arrival, such as a make-your-own postcard kit, colored pencils, travelogue, and safari hat. Parents with babies get a rubber duck, nightlight and emergency kit.
Rooms at the Westin St. Francis are decorated with chandeliers, elaborate woodwork and period-style furniture, and have 37-inch flat-screen televisions with cable channels. Guests fall asleep upon the ‘Heavenly Bed’ made up with foot-thick pillowtop mattresses, down comforters and tailored duvets. Bathrooms are equipped with spa bath product, as well as dual showerheads offering multiple spray options.
