We went to San Diego with family for a 5 days trip and stayed at The Westgate Hotel. We wasted our first day in trying to browse websites, calling friends to get suggestions for visiting places in and around San Diego and looking for "great deals". We met Shraddha Carlin near the Westgate reception in the lobby area. She inquired... More

This lobby of this hotel is very elegant and the doorman is a nice touch. The rooms are a bit dated but they have nice big showers with a big separate vanity so that one person can get ready while the other is in the shower. Bed was comfortable and there was free wi-fi which was nice. The one frustration... More

This ideally located Gaslamp Quarter hotel isn't cookie cutter chain or business modern. Instead we were struck by its old world beauty and warmth, all expertly designed and well maintained. The Westgate is close enough to Gaslamp bars and restaurants to be convenient but not close enough to be bothered by the noise and crowds. And it's only a block... More

I am extremely happy and excited to write down for Shraddha. Ours was a family trip and she planned each day of the trip so perfectly. She was very helpful in clarifying out uncountable number of questions/doubts and came up with the best plan that suited us. It was because of her assistance, our trip was a very planned one...

Everything was perfect here & Shraddha was the best Concierge we ever met and we have met many!! All of her recommendations were spot on, from the restaurants, to sightseeing and everything in between. All of the hotel staff were extremely friendly. The antiques are incredible and this hotel has quite the fascinating history.

I flew in from Philadelphia, PA staying at The Westgate Hotel for the past week, having what ended up being a fantastic first experience visiting San Diego, CA! All of the staff was engaging of me and my needs, answering all my questions about their city with smiles. Two employees were particularily exceptional during my experience at The West Gate....

Location is easy to get to and valet parking (no self-park) although not cheap was good and efficient. The entrance lobby is impressive and the Registration staff very welcoming. Our room was on the 11th floor and quite nice with a very comfy king bed. However, only one comfy chair to sit in! The desk chair was not comfortable to... More

The Westgate is one of the most impressive hotels I've stayed at, especially for the price. Our conference group rate was below the posted rate but even the regular rate seems reasonable. Where to start... The lobby is spectacular. Gold accents and chandeliers give the lobby a grand feeling and the staff is well dressed, further improving the sophisticated atmosphere.... More

My hubby booked our stay here via Expedia. Here is our experience. Pros: Beautiful Hotel in Gaslamp District. Think European/French Decor (it's not old as other people have suggested its just not decorated contemporary style). Friendly staff. Clean Hotel both in the lobby and the rooms. Lots of nearby restaurants. Close to malls and stores. Large hotel room. Comfy beds.... More
