I love being treated like a princess and that is just what I feel like at the Westgate hotel in San Diego! This hotel is just beautiful and the staff are well trained to represent their hotel in the best light possible. From the doormen to the front desk to maintenance to the cleaning women, they all treat you like... More

Stayed here over the 4th of July for a family reunion. The hotel did an excellent job, in my opinion, of taking care of a pretty large group. They were able to accommodate our requests for adjoining rooms. The layout of the hotel rooms is also unique, with 2 rooms sharing a "hallway". This makes it ideal for larger groups.... More

Just completed a four night stay at the Westgate last week. The thing that impressed me the most was the service. If a staff member saw you walking toward a door, they went out of their way to open it for you. Most of the front desk members were very helpful and gracious. I had a spot on one of... More

The Westgate is a lovely hotel. The lobby is extremely opulent- think 18th century France. Rooms big, well designed and equipped with very comfortable beds. There's a lovely rooftop pool with a running track around it - I've never seen such a thing in a city hotel! The staff are all friendly and helpful. The location is great too. Can't... More

A beautiful property, central for everything downtown. All the employees we met were friendly and knowledgeable but Shraddha Carlin, the chief concierge, went above and beyond - she is a true super star! She personally walked us to our room, showed us all the amenities and answered our many questions without missing a beat. When we checked out she walked... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel which is a peaceful oasis and yet close to many of the downtown activities. The exterior of the hotel is not overly inspiring which makes the interior a surprise with it's antiques and old world charm. The staff are amazing and we especially enjoyed Mrs. Carlin the concierge - she is a... More

We stayed at the Westgate for 5 nights and days. The hotel was very clean and elegant. Immediately when walking into the hotel we were introduced to Shraddha their concierge who gave us maps and made suggestions for our trip and sight seeing. She made our reservations and even walked us to the boarding spot for our adventures as well... More

I have extensively within the US and abroad and this was one of my all time best experiences with a hotel both esthetically and the staff. I do not believe you could do better for the price anywhere in San Diego than the Westgate Hotel. Everything from their room and pool services to their dinning is superior.

Booked this hotel on the spur of the moment trip based on trip advisor. The hotel is well located in the downtown San Diego area, near the gas lamp quarter and great customer service, I did feel the parking fees were a bit high (35) as the night before in a similar hotel it was less. The entrance is lovely,... More

I arrived for a one night stay as I needed to be closer to the airport for an early flight to the East Coast. I lived in San Diego the first 26 years of my life and had never been to the Westgate, and even though my Benz rental car had navigation I still couldn't get to the hotel without... More
