Just stayed at that Westin a few weeks ago. Beautiful hotel w/ good amenities and pretty good location depending on your itinerary. Definitely recommend

I prefer fisherman’s wharf. Can hit up north beach, the marina, fort mason, and the embarcadero so easily. I am from SF and visited recently. Stayed at Marriott VC and Hyatt Centric. Loved staying at both hotels.

Also union square def has more homeless and litter around.

Both are great spots for tourists. Union Square is definitely more uppity and has all the high end shopping & is located more centrally in SF. Fisherman's Wharf has a shit ton of yummy seafood restaurants, a nice view of the Bay & little tchotchke stores for souvenirs. The Wharf is nice to walk down & then hit the Embarcadero.

They were all sacrificed to the alter of blm.

Westin. More central location, easier to get around town.

Westin for sure!

Fisherman’s is dead at night. Union Sq isn’t much better but it’s closer to other neighborhoods

Westin. I avoid fisherman’s wharf though

westin union square is a far nicer hotel

When you hear someone say they are “of counsel” in a law firm, what does that mean to you? I know in practice, it just means something other than partner or associate. But to an outsider, does it signify an elevated status of some sort or do people just think it means the attorney isn’t a full time employee?
