    Take the BART from SFO. Simple. Fast. And drops you off in the heart of Union Square, just 2 blocks from the Westin.

    It's loud. The 3am trash collection sounds like godzilla outside the tower. Also bring plenty of long cord chargers because the outlets in this wing couldn't be laid-out any worse

    Make sure to check out this place from the ceiling to the floor. Beautiful architecture and detail.

    If you plan on using the hotel Internet here, bring an ethernet cable. The regular $14.95 wireless service is super weak.

    Check out the Imperial Room on the 32nd floor for killer views. The ride up the glass windowed elevator is worth it by itself!

    Ask to stay in the old part of the hotel. Rooms are a tad smaller but bigger on character.

    Here for a conference? If you need lotion, just ask the front desk for some. Awesome.

    Wonderful hotel but the walls are thin in the older part of the hotel. You can hear everything!

    Get a room on the highest floor possible if youre a light sleeper. Noisy street traffic.

    If you have the money and the means Victor's Palace is the place with a million dollar view.

    The glass elevator is like a theme park ride! Go to the top and back down and feel the vertigo!

    Silent film comic Fatty Arbuckle's career crashed down when a party he hosted at this hotel resulted in the death of young actress Virginia Rappe in 1921. President Ford was also shot at here in 1975.

    At elevators enter floor number & insert room key in slot. Elevator only goes to your floor

    Nothing like ending the night with an absinthe from The Clock Bar. Professionals only please... And you'll still probably want to head up to your room before you finish it ...

    If you're giving a presentation in a Westin conference room, think visually. Presentations are better with words AND pictures. More communication tips at www.carminegallo.com

    Not impressed at all. Had to move rooms as my 1st room smelled of vomit. The carpet & colour pallet is from a bygone era. Having trouble connecting to guest WiFi. That's a serious problem...

    Steer clear of the fruit at the @Starbucks in the lobby; it isn't very fresh looking... that said, the scones are to dye for...

    The dungeness crab omelet is yummy. But, the bar here is terrible. I have never seen such disparate decor. And the drinks are acceptable at best.

    Bad, bad, bad hotel. The only good thing is the ubication. You hear all night noises from the rooms beside yours! I can't sleep in all my stay.

    Ensure that Kayleen is your server. She is more than worth the price of admission. Great espresso martini.

    The elevators suck now. You have to key in your floor, 2-3 times, before an elevator will pick you up. WTF?!
