Hotel Information

Westin St. Francis

The O’Reilly Where 2.0 Conference will be held at the historic Westin St. Francis Hotel, facing Union Square in the heart of San Francisco. This enduring landmark has maintained its preeminence as San Francisco’s center of social, theatrical, and business life since first opening in 1904. As one of the last survivors of colorful, turn-of-the-century San Francisco, The Westin St. Francis is as modern as tomorrow - with a proud past - a collecting place of history and legend.
