We absolutely loved our room at the Westgate. The staff were exceptional and the room was spacious and extremely comfortable. The hotel was very quiet even on a Saturday night in June. It was an easy walk to the Gaslamp District which is just a few blocks away. I think the one draw back was the lack of bar and... More

I stayed here just 1 night, but really had a wonderful time. Super staff! I got a call in the room about a half hour after check in just to see if I needed anything. Clean room. Even provided bathrobes! The pool is open long hours which is nice 5am to 10pm, with exception of live music nights. I felt... More

Beautifully maintained hotel with an eye for high end decor and staff. Within easy walking distance of shopping and restaurants. The rooms are spacious and perfectly appointed. A stay at this hotel will make you feel elegant and pampered. I would definitely go back!!

Beautiful hotel in the perfect location. Walking distance to many restaurants and amenities, like the famous Gaslamp District. They have a one time valet fee but you can get your car as many times as you need. The room itself is beautifully decorated and the free WiFi was a hit with the kids. Complimentary water bottles in the mini fridge... More

I always feel that a stay at a hotel should be seamless and that you should feel comfortable and right at home. That is how I felt at The Westgate Hotel. The style of the hotel is iconic opulence and what you see is what you get. The rooms are spacious and there is plenty of room to hang your... More

A very pleasant lobby (look at but don't touch the antique Steinway Grand Piano and other lovely collectors items) with a smiling welcome from excellent staff and a constant supply of juicy apples. The hotel has a more European feel than most in the US.

The hotel's decor is very elegant and the rooms are super spacious and provided of great amenities. The restaurant offers delicious breakfast, and the room service is great as well.... More

We booked a 2 premium doubles as our son and daughter-in-law were traveling with us. The interior of the hotel is quite elegant with lots of fresh flowers in the grand lobby. Our large rooms featured comfortable king-size beds and all the amenities, including room fridge. When we returned to our rooms following a late dinner, we could hear what... More
