The hotel location is perfect.

Pros: Location, location, location and the staff
Cons: Nothing
Location: Cable cars out the front door. Shopping everywhere. A variety of restaurants both hi end and low. Public transportation everywhere.
Although we stayed in the Vintage section of the hotel, the accommodations were perfect. The room was a nice size, the location of the hotel is ideal for transportation. Cable cars outside the front door, with the Bart and subway and buses less than 2 blocks away. The staff was friendly and extremely accommodating. We would stay there again

Weekend getaway to SF

Hotel is beautiful, modern, well equipped and in a great location for so many SF things. Cable car out front, covered area for can pick up, 3 blocks from BART, and with great views from the higher floors. Elevators afforded great Bay views above floor 15 (we were on 19.) Only complaint- we opted for the "green" deal where you don't get service from housekeeping or new linens etc in exchange for points or redeemable coupons. I called down for room coffee service the 2nd day so we'd have coffee when we woke up. They brought coffee only- no cup, sugar, stirrer, creamer etc. next day requested enough supplies to do coffee for let 2 days and listed out cup, lid, etc. Not even close. Had to get at least 5 visits from engineering, housekeeping and bellman to get coffee and coffee based accoutrements. Beyond that- great hotel only next time, no 'green' for me. Fresh linens and coffee daily.

Nice hotel, great location. Needs updating.

Overpaid due to the seasonal rates. The hotel itself was overall nice. The carpets need updating

The staff here is great! I'd had problems at a different hotel, so moved to the Westin, last minute. They bent over backwards to get my reservation in and make me comfortable while the quickly got my room prepared, even though it was way earlier than normal check in time. The room was comfortable and clean, and I always love the heavenly bed.

Worth the stay

Pros: Location and comfort along with our great view.
We have become very comfortable staying at the gem of Union Square. Our room had a birds eye view of Union Square. My only problem was keeping my wife away from Macys, Neiman Marcus and the other fashionable stores that line square. I'll be back.
