Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army in the Civil War, this grand square has become the city's premier shopping and entertainment district containing the largest number of upscale department stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theatres in the city. It's a large open area where tourists and locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by, enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and sightseeing, If feeling the pulsating energy of the city is on your agenda, Union Square is the place to soak it in.

I loved the room. I was upgraded to a high floor large bedroom. The view of the city was outstanding. The bed was very comfortable, the room was cozy. The staff at the front desk was really friendly and caring. This is a landmark of San Francisco. I have stayed here many times.

Had a weekend in the City and decided to try the Westin St. Francis which is now my new favorite hotel. One pet peeve I have about hotel is the practical aspects. Whoever designed the bathrooms did a amazing job. It's not big but they used the space well plus it's beautiful.
