Why We Like This Place

Commonly referred to as the Grand Dame of Union Square, The Westin St. Francis has been a symbol of elegance in San Francisco for more than a century. Its many rooms, some featuring exquisite historic detailing and others reflecting more modern luxury, have hosted beautiful wedding ceremonies, grand receptions, and business events of all types.

In the hotel’s turn-of-the-century Landmark Building, you’ll find stunning ballrooms with marble floors, gilt pillars, intricately carved ceilings, and a hundred years’ worth of history. They include: the Borgia Room, a jewel-box chamber with oak-paneled walls, a six-foot-tall marble fireplace, and a vaulted, delicately painted ceiling (originally the hotel’s chapel, it’s perfect for a wedding ceremony); the St. Francis Suite (just right for a smaller ceremony and reception); and the Colonial Room, appointed with Italian murals, elaborate candelabras, and gold-leafed columns separating regal opera balconies. Large events are held in the Grand Ballroom, which is easily transformed by your choice of décor and can accommodate up to 800 guests. Receptions often start with cocktails in the Colonial Room, then flow into the adjacent Grand Ballroom for the main affair.

If you prefer a more contemporary ambiance, hold your celebration in the Tower Building. Its two premier spaces, Victor’s and Alexandra’s, are a pair of sophisticated settings on the 32nd-story Imperial Floor. Five glass elevators overlook spectacular downtown panoramas as they whisk guests up to this sky-high getaway. Boasting breathtaking floor-to-ceiling views that extend from the Bay Bride to the Golden Gate, these private rooms also dazzle at night: Glowing chandeliers and hundreds of sparkling pin-spots provide adjustable lighting to match your mood. Gold Chiavari chairs, custom Wedgwood china and your own Imperial Floor concierge make having an event up here a sublime experience.

The possibilities at The Westin St. Francis are almost endless. Are you looking for Old San Francisco glamour or something more modern? If you can’t decide, why not combine the past and the present with a ceremony in the Borgia Room followed by dinner and dancing in Alexandra’s. Whatever spaces you select, your event will most certainly be magical.
