    We did not stay at this hotel (although we had stayed there on a trip some years ago). We decided to have a drink in the bar and were delighted to learn that they have happy hour from 5 to 7 pm every afternoon. Their featured cocktails and wines are $7.00 and a wide selection of hors d'ouevres are $7.50.... More

    This is my second visit to the Westgate. I arrived on site on Monday just after noon and was greeted by a warm and friendly member of the staff. Check in was a breeze and the front desk staff even checked the local Padres baseball schedule for me and called me in my room to share the game schedule for... More

    From the moment we first visited David at the front desk, through every interaction with Shraddha, to all the help and tips from Craig in the wait staff, our visit to The Westgate Hotel for the APSE Conference in June was the business/pleasure trip my wife and I have taken. I mention those three by name because they stood out,... More

    We just spent the better part of a week at downtown San Diego's Westgate Hotel. It was a great experience on all levels. The customer service standard they maintain is excellent. The people greeting you at the curb, front desk, bar and restaurant staff had a genuine interest in the quality of our experience. I cannot say enough about Shaddra,... More

    Very Nice and upscale hotel. But when I moved the ottoman next to the sitting chair I found four used syringes, one uncapped (see photo). I immediately called the front desk and they sent up security. When i spoke to the manager two days later (after not hearing from anyone) she explained that the housekeeping should have moved the ottoman... More

    I just finished holding a conference for 100 people at The Westgate and cannot say enough about the quality of the hotel, the location, the staff, the food and beverage and everything else connected with this property. I highly recommend it for a leisure visit to San Diego, a business visit or a small conference venue. The rooms are spacious,... More

    We were unable to get a waterfront hotel for a last minute mini-vacation to see a Padres game, so on a flyer, I booked the Westgate, based on their website. What a wonderful surprise awaited me when we walked thru the door! I honestly thought I had arrived at Versailles! Quite a similar elegant feel, crystal chandeliers by the dozens,... More

    We had a wonderful stay at the Westgate Hotel in San Diego. It was such a pleasant experience to stay at this sophisticated hotel. We felt like french emperors in the days of old. The conciere Ms. Carlin has taken very good care of us and has made our stay unforgettable. I can only reccomend a stay at the Westgate.... More

    I stayed at this beautiful Hotel for 4 nights with my daughter. Located in downtown San Diego near the Gaslamp area with plenty of nice restaurants and bars. Rooms are large, clean and quiet, beds extremely comfortable. Pool very nice and never crowded. Very professional staff at check in/reception area, very helpful and always smiling! Special thanks to the Chief... More

    It would have been great. Pictures of this pool made me book right away. Checked in and low and behold - the pool would be closed because of Jazz Night. 2nd annual jazz night. Our room, which was ok, overlooked a lackluster crowd below. I want money back. But then, we went to the pool. It is 2 and 1/2... More
