This elegant hotel styled with old fashioned, classic decor (not modern taste) met all our needs: good location, room amenities, and service. The restaurant served the best pancakes we had in town! It's famous for their weekend brunches. Warm cookies were available at the front desk. The room had an outstanding view, was spacious, and had a modern bathroom. The... More

The hotel is exquisite and beautiful and ALL the staff treated us supremely. Everyone, especially Shraddha, the concierge, were so attentive and personable. Shraddha was so welcoming and helpful and friendly and always, always a smile on her face. She went out of her way to make sure our stay - not only at the hotel, but in the San... More

In August 2014 my wife and I spend two nights at the Westgate Hotel nicely located in down town San Diego close to a large shopping mall, many restaurants, the airport, Seaport Village and much more. The Hotel was really good. The Front Desk Staff was helpful and courteous. The concierge very service oriented and all other personnel provided also... More

I stayed at the Westgate Hotel for 7 nights for a business trip, and the hotel delivered on many points. The Lobby was grand, and reminiscent of a time when hotels were the place to see and be seen. Fresh flowers, and fine antique furniture and rugs fill every inch of the lobby and common areas. The bedrooms were very... More

We felt like royalty by the time we had left the Westgate Hotel. Being new to the San Diego area we decided to try a new destination for a birthday celebration. We were greeted by the chief concierge, Shraddha Carlin, she is so knowledgeable and has personality plus! We enjoy their fabulous brunch by Chef Fabrice. The food was amazing!... More

This hotel is just beautiful and the staff are well trained to represent their hotel in the best light possible.

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
