The location was excellent. The entire staff was very friendly and everyone ready to help. Check in was very fast and efficient. Jeff at the concierge was very helpful in all our needs for information. All in all a great hotel to stay. This is our 2nd time and we will always come back whenever we visit SFO
Nothing really to say
Property was clean, and maintained well. Very friendly and helpful staff Clean spacious and well appointed rooms. Everything worked properly.
I was told we had a view, which we did, but the view was of another tall hotel on the hill and various surrounding tall buildings. I would have have liked a small sample lotion, as I rely on hotels providing a sample when I travel. Tall bottle of complimentary water. Other than those suggestions and comments we enjoyed our night out in the city.
My son and his wife stay the night and saw the Harry Potter Play. Convenient to the theater. Your hotel did allow my son and his pregnant wife to check in early. This was extremely wonderful and convenient for them.
I gave this night stay to my son and his wife as a Christmas Gift. I put them down as the guests and even called 2 days prior to be sure they would not see the priceI spent. The employee confirmed my credit card info and assured me my son would not pay for anything all charges would be applied to my card. IT DID NOT HAPPEN. My son had to pay the entire bill. I had to take the time to reimburse him. It was not good that he saw how much I spent. This was a gift!!!
I really liked the location and the people I encountered during my stay.
The hotel and my room did not meet what I have come to expect from my stays at The Westin.
