Floors 16 to 34 overlook Yerba Buena Gardens, the city, the bay, and the hills beyond; others peer between the tall, looming edifices of the Financial District (though some of these also glimpse the Golden Gate Bridge, the bay, or Alcatraz). Back on earth, the renovated lobby is home to the new MaSo Restaurant. Rooms feature Westin's
