This past spring, the Westin St. Francis, in downtown San Francisco, announced the completion of an ambitious $20 million renovation of the Tower Building. The renovation was completed in anticipation of the hotel’s 110th anniversary as the “Grand Dame” of San Francisco. The renovated Tower Building is one of the tallest in Union Square, offering incredible views of the city.
A design team from the hotel’s parent company, Strategic Hotels & Resorts, set out to create a new vibe at the Westin St. Francis without disturbing the historical nature of the building. They have successfully created a fusion between old and new that combines the latest in technology with modern, contemporary style and amenities. Guests will see the dramatic changes right away in the color choices, local artwork, and furnishings.
Walking through the tower’s renovated corridors is an experience unto itself. Brand-new carpet paves the way for new wall coverings, ceiling pendants, furnishings, mirrors, and contemporary artwork. As you walk down the corridor, a building anticipation of what your room looks like is a natural reaction.
Westin St. Francis’ Tower Building boasts 569 guest rooms on 32 floors. The entire hotel property offers 1,195 guest rooms and 48 suites. Recently renovated rooms offer contemporary furnishings, floor-to-ceiling drapes, executive desks, and spacious bathrooms with marble vanities.
All guest rooms and suites come with a long list of amenities, including:
- 250 thread count linens
- complementary robes
- private-label bath and beauty products
- high-speed Internet
- 37-inch LCD TV
- writing desk and chair

- turn-down service
The hotel’s suites offer a full range of additional amenities designed to pamper the discriminating traveler. Among those amenities are semi-private entrances and accommodations that are more spacious.

This state-of-the-art facility combines the best in luxury spa treatments with a modern gym facility sporting all of the latest equipment.
