Hotwire Hotel: 4.5* San Francisco (Union Square East) Westin St. Francis

Booked this hotel for October 2 to October 4, 2023…$155 (plus $25 daily destination fee plus tax= almost $200/night). 

The hotel is the Westin St Francis… for bidding, the property is listed as a boutique hotel, which really threw me off because the Westin is one of the bigger hotels in the city and far from a boutique hotel. I don’t know how or why they include this designation in the description.

I was surprised this was the winning hotel because the description said it was a 4.5 star boutique hotel, which it's far from. It also said it would be from one of the folowing four chains:


* Westin

* Le Meridien

* Luxury Collection (which would could only be the Palace)

* Sofitel (there isn't one in close to this central SF.


I would have been happy with any of the top three hotels. St. Francis was running 2x more expensive on a direct basis.


Price of $155/night is based on hotel picks the bed/room. King was $25/night more. I'm alone, so fine with a Queen, but I'm also Bonvoy Plat, which I know doesn;t guarantee me anything but hopefully can score a checkin upgrade. Price does not include $25/night destination fee which includes F&B credit and  few other benefits, so I am fine with that. High taxes but that's SF.
