Old Hotel, Bad Service, Staff, Management, Avoid! We stay at this hotel with our whole family. There was a miscommunication between me and wife when making booking, so I made booking and wife also made booking. We booked 4 rooms total while we need only 2. We called hotels to help sort things out. They are not willing to help. So we paid 4 rooms and ended up only using 2 rooms. And worse yet, when we arrive, they sold the 2 unused rooms to walk in guest. Avoid this hotel run by a crooked management. There are many hotels nearby. Westin should be ashamed of its brand.
We recently spent a long weekend at the Westin St. Francis and had a great time. The customer service, especially from Jeff at the concierge desk was outstanding. Jeff exemplified how customers should be treated and offered great suggestions on the local area and his recommendations were “spot on”. I highly recommend you speak with Jeff if you need assistance with any requests or recommendations when staying at the St. Francis.
The location of the property is excellent and you can catch the cable cars right in the front of the hotel. We have stayed at this property on other occasions and will return again, when in San Francisco.
