I travelled with my wife of this particular trip and had to leave because of the nasty strikers that would verbally harass us as we left and returned to the facility. It was not a pleasant experience!

Historical Traveller Reviews of The Westin San Francisco Market Street Hotel

Good location, nice rooms

from Grohe
We stayed here one night. It was a nice location, clean hotel, nice little bar. Nothing spectacular but really great for the price we paid. Beds were qutie comfortable. Showers are something to be desired. They need some updating. We come to San Fran often and this hotel is a good spot. We would stay here again if we were in town for sure!

Wasted Potential

from FlyOneWorld
The Argent is potential wasted. Rates are usually good but everything else is downhill. Having stayed here 4 times I must say the hotel has issues. If it is full forget getting breakfast, it took us over 1 hour in the restaurant. Rooms can be very nice but once I found rotting food under the bed, once I found dirt everywhere and once my room was triangular/tiny and most uncomfortable.

The Front desk staff are useless and expect issues checking in and there is no hope they will solve problems. On the brighter side common areas are lovely, some rooms are great and the bar is nice.

My room was given away too!!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I made reservations two nights before my stay through the hotel website for the park & play rate of $159.00 which included 2 double sized beds on floor 4-7 with a limited view. Which was fine since I was a native of San Francisco and only wanted a comfortable place to stay in a nice hotel. I called at 7pm the night of my reservation to see if it was ok to check in later that night or if I should stop in before going to dinner. The guy at the front desk assured that my room was already reserved and waiting for me and that I could check in as late as 3am. I got there at 10pm and pulled up to the valet and the bell boy was busy with someone else. So I loaded my own bags onto a cart and rolled them into the hotel myself. The lady at the front desk told me she had two parlor rooms available on the top 36th floor of their hotel with a gorgeous view but there was only one queen sized bed in the room. She explained that this was part of a suite that wasn't rented out, but was twice the size of any standard room. I asked if I could see the room first and come back down and tell her if I did or did not want it. She said fine so I went up. As soon as I walked in I noticed there wasn't even a bed, the bed she was talking about, was a sofa bed. The room was rather large but there was a huge meeting table taking up half of it. I could care less about the view of Yerba Buena Gardens either. I had the bellboy who finally showed up to bring my bags up call down, to say this would not do. I was told there were no other rooms left, so I was stuck in this one. I immediately went down to the lady at the front desk that also confirmed this. I had a horrible evening of tossing and turning on the warped sofa bed and got no sleep & my wife & two kids weren't comfortable either. They gave us a lousy discount of $60 for giving our room away, but that was given right back in tips to the bellboy, valet, and the guy that had to put sheets on our sofa bed. I will never in my life stay here again! Even if you make reservations through the hotel themselves they will not honor them unless you show up at 3pm or something?

disappointed!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I recently stayed at the argent with my boyfriend. We stayed for one night. The pictures online were gorgeous, and I just kind of randomly picked this hotel. When I checked in, the woman working the front desk wasn't very friendly. She did her job, and she did it efficiently, so I guess I shouldn't complain. None of the staff seemed terribly friendly, but perhaps this is because I am 20.

The room was tiny, and I think the bathroom was almost the size of the bedroom. It was strange. The bed was small and only moderately comfortable. The pillows were excellent, though! The television was placed in a weird spot, next to the bed instead of at the foot of the bed. The following mmay be a minor detail, but it really annoyed me at the time. THere was no indication of where the ice machine is. I was extremely tired, and all I wanted was a glass of ice water, and I had to walk the entire length of the hallway of the eleventh floor to find it.

I suppose the suites are really nice, but the lowest rate rooms are not. The Argent is trying to be a luxury hotel, and at first glance, it seems that way. But upon closer inspection, it is your average hotel. I would much rather stay at a run-of-the-mill hotel such as a Best Western or something where the rooms are bigger and the staff is friendlier.

I will not be staying here again.

Good place. Excellant Value.

from Daryl_G
Nice place. Helpful staff. My basic King room was spacious enough and even had a small dressing area with dresser near the sink. I found a good deal on a travel site that included free parking; a $39 value in that part of town. The only thing that might keep me from staying here, again, on business, is lack of hi speed internet in the basic room. Close to BART.

Loved it!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I booked the Argent because of location. It is a half block from Market St where you can catch BART, F Train, Muni or buses so it is very convienent. As it turns out it was a a great hotel too! The rooms are very nice, and clean too. The windows go from floor to ceiling so it only adds the great views of the city. I love the Deco decorations through out the room and hotel lobby. The Argent offers great rooms and has a great location too!

Small room

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband and I stayed at The Argent March 30 through April 5, 2004.
We had a convention rate (National Court Reporters' Association) of $145.00 per night. Our room was on the top floor and had a nice view of the bay. However, the room was very small, about 10 X 20, with the TV in the corner at the head of the bed on the opposite from the chair.
There were no drawers except the little lap drawer of the desk. The closet rod was about waist level for hanging folded slacks but not high enough to hang a dress or hand slacks by the hem or waist. I think the room was just a space they had left over and decided to stick a bed in so they could rent it to some poor souls such as us. The least they should do with this room is offer it at a substantially reduced rate.

Loved This Luxurious Hotel!

from A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel was definitely classy and beautiful. We got a great deal when booking online. The rooms were gorgeous (Contemporary furniture and accessories) The hotel staff was pleasant and helpful. As with several other reviewers, the only problem we had was when checking out, there were charges on our bill for items in the fridge. We talked to the concierge and the items were deducted immediately without a hassle.

Billing Problems left a Bad Impression

from A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel was nice enough but like other reviewers have noted, we had problems with the billing when we checked out. We booked our room under a special holiday package that included parking. When checking out not only were we charged for parking, but the desk blamed the billing problems on the way we booked our reservation. After reading the hotel reviews before we stayed at the Argent, I had printed out my information as I made my reservation and showed them how we had reserved the room correctly. The experience left me with a very bad impression about this hotel.

ok, but not great

from rataturium
The hotel is overall very elegant. The problem I had was I booked through expedia and was given a very small oddly shaped room. In addition it smelled of urine. I told the front desk but they didn't seem to care. Otherwise the bed was very comfortable.

Top Local Tips for San Francisco

Avoid Rental Cars in San Francisco Parking is very expensive at the hotels- ours charged $47/night plus tax and then once in the city - the city lots charge a premium. We recommend taxis which are plentiful and not very expensive.

Don't rent a car in San Francisco Get a MUNI/BART pass, it gets you absolutely everywhere. The one way road and lights can get anyone crazy. Traffic can get very bad too.

Sick of room service? If you're staying near the convention centre and don't want another restaurant meal then stretch your legs and take a stroll down to the Whole Foods Market at 4th and Harrison. They have numerous prepared food options for take-out which are cheaper, tastier and healthier than most room-service food!
