Great location, great room

Twyford, United Kingdom

Here for a conference, pretty sure I've stayed here before. The Westin is in a great location on Union Square and has fantastic levels of service. Was give an upgrade to a room with a fantastic view with SPG status. Room itself was large, comfortable and well appointed. Really like the gym here, it's very well equipped. Overall a lovely stay, no idea how much it cost.

Very well located

Washington DC, District of Columbia

The hotel is very well located - right at Union Square, an easy walk to the Moscone Center and much of downtown San Francisco. It's great for conference attendees since it's close to Moscone, and great for tourists too since the hop on hop off buses all come to Union Square. It's convenient to a lot of shopping and dining as well. The rooms were on the smaller side since it is a historic hotel, with somewhat limited counter space in the bathroom. It was great for a single traveler but could have been challenging if there had been two of us. The beds were of course "heavenly" and there was no noise from the street in my room on the 11th floor.
