I checked in late, and there was a problem with my reservation, She was friendly patience and made sure that everything was corrected promptly I wished all front desk agents are like that. Thanks again, I hope I spelled her name right

Good location, beds, breakfast and views. Watch out for ~$50 daily fee.

I've stayed at this property a number of times, usually a few days at a time mid-week for business.

As it's an old Westin, beds are comfortable. Views over SF are really nice on high floors. I'm a breakfast guy and quite like the breakfast and the staff is nice.

I'm a platinum member with Starwood/Marriott. The front desk staff tend to be stingy with upgrades. This is pretty common for SF, which has too many high-status business travellers. One time, the front desk agent even hinted that he was out of upgrades, but he could get me one for a $20 tip.

Note that the hotel charges a ridiculous daily "facilities" fee of $39.00, plus tax. This gives you no real benefits, except for maybe a few discount coupons for SF. The fee used to be waived on my corporate rate, but now I have to pay it. I just factor this into the total price and expense it. If I had to pay for this, I'd be really annoyed.

The valet parking is ridiculously expensive, something like $60-70/night. There's a much cheaper parking garage across the road, and a public one a couple of blocks away.

Great location and value

I don't know if i lucked out or just a slow weekend but the room i got was $140 a night in Union Square, close to everything. The hotel is clean and nice, nothing super fancy but i would say it is a nice place and comfortable with all the amenities you need. Check in was so easy, Jonathan was super nice and helpful and I arrived at 145pm and was able to get right into my room. Had a great view from the 23rd floor. Definitely check out this hotel if you are looking for a good hotel, clean and close to all the shopping and BART.

Best Customer Service - Thank you to Jonathan!

When I arrived to The Park Central San Francisco, I was immediately greeted with the most warm and welcoming introduction from Jonathan at the check-in counter. He was friendly, patient, extremely detail oriented and was able to answer all my questions with the biggest smile on his face. After a seven-hour flight from traveling all day and commenting to my coworkers as to how exhausted I was, my day went from good to amazing - all thanks to Jonathan. He even upgraded my room, free of charge and gave my coworkers and I each a free drink voucher. I can't express enough how great Customer Service this is - probably the best I have received ever at a hotel. Thank you Jonathan and thank you to the Park Central for making my stay so enjoyable! I will definitely be back!
