Starwood Expands in San Francisco

Starwood loyalists who frequent San Francisco have reason to rejoice with the Argent becoming a Westin and the Park Hyatt becoming a Le Meridien.

I love this quote from San Francisco’s Convention and Visitors Bureau Chairman,

    “If the Argent does suddenly better, it’s not because the building’s better but because someone is bribing them with Starwood points.”

Starwood has some outstanding options in San Francisco already, with the new St. Regis, an outstanding W, the Westin St. Francis, and the love-it-or-hate-it Palace. Adding the Park Hyatt is a real coup.
