I stay here almost every time I am in SFO. The staff treats preferred folks like royalty. The rooms are Westin quality. I was upgraded to a suite once, and it was very nice (felt like 1800 sq ft.), but I was only there for 10 hours. The bartenders could be friendlier, for sure.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DPDP22 A swing and a miss...
After experiencing 4 plane cancellations I was forced to stay the night in SF and as a SPG member chose to stay at the SFO Westin. I called reservations who had my room held at my corporate rate and then somehow lost the reservation. The hotel was then overbooked and they couldn't get it back. I was instructed to simply go walk-in and I was assured I would get a room and they would honor my corporate rate. Well I got a room, they didn't honor my corporate rate and the room was not up to your hotel standards let alone my expectations. Room phone didn't work, there was no remote control and the heat was cranked all the way up to 78 degrees. All in all it was a miserable experience.

Just what you need after a long flight. Speedy check in, good room, and a really good restaurant with fine food and beverages.
Shuttle service was on time and fast.
Will stay again when in the area.

Rated 2 out of 5 by zlzoul Bad first impression
Sometimes first impression is VERY important. When I arrived at 9 PM, only two front desk staff are serving for a queue of more than 10 people! And the queue is just keep increasing. After serval complains finally we got a third front desk staff. People are exhausted when they arrive at the airport, and standing in such a long queue to check-in for a Westin is just awful.
Front desk says it will cost me $30 for an room upgrade with a bay view even for you as a platinum member. Well although she tried to 'save time' and finally waived it for me, but is this against the platinum benefits? I am not asking for a suite, just a room with better view.
During the stay the housekeeping staff was great! Restaurants are fair as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by monkeypickle Perfect place to stay by SFO
I come here quite a bit with my fiance and my little guy (dog) and we love it here. They are absolutely accommodating of pets. They have an entire floor for SPG members and try their best to give us the corner rooms so our little guy doesn't get anxious.
If you're looking for a great place that is also pet friendly this is the place to go. They do charge $20 for parking, but it is gated and there is valet service. The place has a restaurant, some banquet halls for rent, meeting rooms, and pool.
Love the fact that it is right by the airport so you can watch airplanes take off but the sound proofing prevents you from hearing the engines.
Also they have great friendly staff always extremely helpful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DrMJM Room good, but too noisy
One would hope that by being near the airport, and having an early (6:00 am) flight, a restful stay would be possible. Alas, not so much.
The rooms are not adequately sound-proofed, and noise in the halls (of which there was a great deal), slamming doors, crying children in nearby rooms, etc. prevented a good night's sleep. Thus, even though trying to retire for sleep at a reasonable time (10 pm), and arising at 3:30 am to prepare to catch the 4 am shuttle, sleep was fitful at best, with many awakenings from all the noise.
Not expected from a hotel of this supposed caliber.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Robby19 Primo Airport Hotel
The location of this hotel is excellent, if you have any business at SFO. Could not be much closer. Also walking distance to the Millbrae BART station, which was very convenient. The rooms are a little worn, but they're big and have all the Westin touches -- excellent beds and bedding, a big desk, a nice chair/ottoman combo. Surprisingly quiet for being so close to an airport; I heard no planes from inside my room. Very accommodating staff; the bartender was warm and friendly, and the front desk staff took care of my needs quickly and happily. Would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by smitty72 great location/great staff
we had flown in from Hawaii and was met by the shuttle bus and driven the short distance to the hotel. checked in and was at the bar having a much deserved cocktail,less then an hour after our plane landed. service,room and cocktails were great. On our departure I left our cell phone in the room and upon arriving home back in Chicago there was a message waiting that thery had found the phone and they were shipping it home.can't say enough about the hotel the staff and the service. please don't change.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ckone08 This hotel ticked nearly all the boxes
The location was great, 10 mins from airport and a 30min BART (train ) ride to SF Downtown ($8 return). The room and hotel was very quite, comfortable and clean. Staff very friendly and efficient, nothing a problem. Meals simple but yummy. Across the road is a path along the waterfront - great for walking, running, plane watching (international and domestic runway right in front - can't hear from room) or accessing restaurants. Also a lovely shopping district is a short taxi ride away. Highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CTraveler Good choice for airport accomodations
The Westin SFO is a good choice at the airport. I almost always stay here when I need an airport hotel. Large rooms, good gym and pool, all the expected amenities. The staff makes the place - very gracious and friendly. As a Platinum you are treated very well - room upgrade and breakfast. This hotel is closer to the airport than some of the other choices, so the shuttle is a fast trip to the terminal. Had a problem with the heater in my room and maintenance was there quickly to address the issue.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Guest321 Rooms are poorly maintained
In response for your request for feedback:
•Shower head didn’t work very well
•Tub didn’t drain
•Water pooling in grout on bathroom floor (some identified leak)
It was surpring and dissapointing to to have a room at a Westin that was so poorly maintained.

Rated 3 out of 5 by cpinSB Hotel 4 stars shuttle 2 stars
I really liked the pool and Jacuzzi it was a bonus after a long day and the food was excellent. I only had 2 things first the shuttle I had a altercation with the shuttle driver who wasn't helpful ,or knowledgeable I was looking up the gate and said A 09 he said "How could he know where that was?" and dropped us at the wrong terminal. He was rude and should try to know where things are at the airport.. The other was I was offered free WIFI as my gold amenity but I get that anyway as a benefit.

Usually the service at this hotel is very good. However this time when I checked in, the person at the desk ran off to put something away and when he came back appeared hurried. He did thank me for being a Platinum member, however neglected to ask a couple of key questions: "would you be interested in making a green choice" and "would you like your bill emailed to you"? On Wednesday, I had to call back to the hotel and ask to have my bill emailed to me.

I have stayed at this hotel many many times over the years. It is great when your business picks up the tab, but out of your own pocket, it gets quite pricey and then they add a huge parking fee on top. There are excellent other hotels in the area that I have used, but I prefer this one, when I can get a reasonable price, because of the location -- easy access to just about anything and everything, if you have a car. It is not an easy walk to anything.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Fins56 Chose Westin for
I had 6:30am flight.
There were many hotels available.
I chose Westin over many other lower priced hotels expecting little more expectation than other hotel chains.
Turned out "phones in the room does not work" "no wake-up call available" "45 min to airport from by shuttle due to stopping 3 other hotels. It takes 20min from my apartment in Manhattan to LaGuardia airport.
Probably those under $100 rooms had at least working phone in the room.

We had a great weekend stay at this hotel. Airport shuttles very timely and easy to find. We came back late our first day and were concerned the restaurant would be closed since it was near 10pm. We were seated without hesitation and the food was great, and the service excellent. The wine list was excellent like you would expect to see in San Francisco. Overall a great stay and will definitely return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Moose30 My stay was fantastic!
I was expecting just an above average room but all of their accommodations were top tier! The bed was like sleeping on a cloud, the shower had a huge rainhead w/ handshower and luxurious towels. And for breakfast in the restaurant downstairs I asked for a croissant and it happened to be freshly baked from scratch and I even got a free refill on my delicious beet/apple juice. I was blown away!

Rated 1 out of 5 by fwhittlesey Figure out wifi, it's 2013
Poor front desk service, lousy restaurant with inattentive service, but worst: bugs with wifi, spending time on the phone with "tech support". That's like having to call tech support to get running water. And they charge for it! Come on Westin, figure it out. No wonder this was the only hotel with available rooms in the entire Bay Area going into pride weekend. Do not stay here, ever!

Rated 1 out of 5 by GIredd Worse stay ever for price
Room as far as sleeping only was ok. I never been in such an expensive hotel with no fan in the bathroom, no fridg for left over food, no microwave, no ice bucket or location for ice, no vending machines. I have never experienced such rude service in a gift shop either. The quality of the food in the restaurant was very poor. In the future for Seminars I will choose else where.

Located minutes from SFO, with easy shuttle service. Hotel is clean and staff is friendly and attentive. Indoor heated pool is great when it is cool (foggy) outside, workout is available as well. Breakfast buffet serves all the basics for a quick and convenient morning meal. 20-25 minutes to the City and 30-40 to Silicon Valley so a nice quiet happy medium.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CJL2013 This Westin is worn
This hotel did not meet my criteria of what a Westin property should be. The room was old and tired with torn carpet, dirty wallpaper and worn out pillows and mattresses. Definately not a "heavenly bed" experience. Upon check out, the concierge did not ask about my stay - and seemed put off when I asked for a paper copy of my billing receipt.

Everyone from bellman to front desk staff were so friendly & helpful! Our 2 yr old son LOVED watching the planes come & go from the window of our room----but we were never hassled with any of the noise! The sound proof glass was perfect!
Only drawback was that the indoor pool, for nice as it was, was freezing cold, the heater was broken.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rescue61 Excellent service, convenient location
This hotel was perfect for a quick overnight stay in the city. I didn't need to shop around for other hotels because I knew I could count on the Westin brand and this hotel lived up to my expectations. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. The room was clean and very quiet, even though it's adjacent to SFO.

Rated 1 out of 5 by farinc Most Pedesrian Westin I've Stayed In
Just an ordinary hotel. Nothing noteworthy.
As usual, as a long standing SPG Gold Member, no room upgrade offered even though suites were available as I called reservations prior to checking in. As always, they lie and say none are available. I've been a Gold member since SPG offered their program. And with hundreds of nights in stays, I've only had 3 hotels offer me a room upgrade. The membership is truly meaningless where room upgrades are concerned unless you are Platinum where they are supposedly required to provide an upgrade.
I was surprised that they would still have the double headed showers, especially in "environmentally pro active" California.
I'm slways amazed at how inconsiderate other hotel guests are at allowing their doors to slam shut at all hours of the night and early morning hours. Hotel could resolve this by putting up reminder signs and silent shutting doors; they exist.
Pool and jacuzzi was great.
Staff were very friendly and helpful when asked upon.
Restaurant staff also very pleasant.
