I had the pleasure of staying here recently and wondered why I hadn't tried it before. The check-in was fast and personable. the rooms very comfortable, and the staff falls over itself to be sure your needs are met and stay if as perfect as possible. The location is phenomenal-- I valet parked the car (there is no self park... More

We booked this hotel about 2 weeks prior to the vacation. Being in our early 30s, we wanted a fun, active spring break getaway with zero chance of drunk college kids. And we succeeded! The hotel is about a $15+ tip taxi ride from the airport. Or you can take the local bus for $2.25. We arrived late on a... More

A friend and I had 48 hours to cram in a weekend getaway, and the staff was so polite and above and beyond helpful! When we couldn't get the hotel room key to work Erik in security personally brought us up 2 new working keys! Other staff even fetched my jacket from my car parked in valet! On another occasion...

My daughter and I did a Spring Break trip to San Diego and picked hotels by nearby location to what we were visiting, in this case the Zoo and downtown. I really can't find anything bad to say about our stay here. The hotel was clean, the staff was friendly, and the workout room was nice. The total bill for... More

Excellent! We spent four days at the Westin Gaslamp for a professional meeting, and were well pleased with the setting and the service. The location was perfect—a short cab ride from the airport, and right in the middle of an enormous variety of restaurants, theaters, shops, etc. The area was very walkable, but cabs were plentiful. Check-in was smooth and... More

I will definitely not stay here again. I stayed 3 nights and it cost me $108 to park. AAA members do not get free parking unless you book that specific promotion. There are different hotels in the area just as nice that charge a fraction to park.

Thank you Adamsulli for your review on Trip Advisor. It is unfortunate the parking pricing is the deciding factor for your to return to our premiere hotel. Many of the downtown locations offer both valet and self-parking, however, due to our building design this is not possible. There are many option in downtown to choose from and all properties of...

The hotel is in a great location. Bell and checkin staff are excellent. The food was tasty and healthy. The hotel ambiance is fresh and pleasant. After you stay a couple of days you realize: the food services are understaffed, not conscientious about checking in, the lobby radio volume starts to drive you nuts. Don't sit near an air conditioning... More

I stayed at the Westin during a conference that was held at the convention center less than 1 mile away. This hotel was very clean and accommodating. The location was perfect and in walking distance to all restaurants and shopping in the area. I will definately stay there again.

Especially Ruben was making our time comfortable and fun! Julianne at the Concierge desk was amazing too in planning my afternoon. Alisha, who checked is in, was very sweet and sincere. I... More

In my experience, Westin Hotels can vary in terms of room quality and service. The Westin Gaslamp Quarter is simply a great place to stay and did a fine job of the professional meeting I was attending. In the heart of perhaps the most fun area in downtown San Diego, the WGQ is perfectly located. Besides the excellent location, what... More
