Historic Cocktails, A 1910 Tasting Menu and Complimentary Appetizers

March 21, 2014 marked the 110th anniversary of the legendary Westin St. Francis, San Francisco’s most iconic hotel. Originally opened in 1904 to international acclaim, the hotel quickly became the center of the west coast’s social, theatrical and business life. Commissioned by Charles T. Crocker and his affluent circle of friends, their vision of making San Francisco the “Paris of the West” and the St. Francis Hotel the flagship came to life after two years of construction and $2.5 million, a hefty sum for that time period. The opening of the historic St. Francis Hotel set a new echelon for innovation and opulence in San Francisco.Throughout the entire year, guests and visitors to The Westin St. Francis can celebrate the 110th anniversary of the hotel with special menu items, historic tours, spa treatments and more including:
