After our lunch in Pier 39, we had a little stop at the Golden Gate Bridge to take photos of this famous icon of San Francisco before heading straight to the Westin San Francisco Market Street – not to be confused with the one in Union Square.
Traffic was horrible during that time of the day, it reminded me somehow of the time that we drove towards New York. It was a bumper to bumper traffic and at some point, we stayed in the exact same spot when the stoplight in front of us already changed its color 4 times. I kid you not so as soon as we’ve arrived at the Westin San Francisco Market Street, we were more than happy to be able to stretch our legs and our backs. I think my spine cracked a little as I stretched.
The hotel’s location is definitely its unique selling point, right in the heart of Market Street which puts you in the center of where the action is. We were exploring the city on foot most of the time as the hotel makes it really easy for you to do so. The rooms were huge and clean, we had one with a great street view of San Francisco. After freshening up, we headed out and walked towards Chinatown to hunt for a good place for dinner. We’ve gotten sick and tired of all the seafood and Italian cuisine that we’ve been eating so it was a unanimous decision that we’d like to taste something different for that night’s meal. Chinatown of course didn’t disappoint, we found a very authentic Chinese restaurant which served an incredible wonton soup. Yum yum!
After our very hearty dinner, we went back to our room and dozed off to sleep as soon as our backs laid flat on the bed. It was a very long and awesome day and staying in Westin San Francisco Market Street was definitely the cherry on top of this sweet ice cream! 🙂
