I was very pleased with the hotel and it being walking distance to almost everything. Pool was a plus as well as their workout eauipment. Great for a weekend getaway for the family or for a romantic stay in the city.

A very friendly hotel in a good location. The concierge shaddha Carlin was the best concierge experience I have ever encountered, she was friendly gave advice and booked excursions and always greeted us by name when we were in the lobby! Pool area spacious and pool temperature perfect. Possibly could do with a few more sun beds as there were... More

I came in for a business trip and brought my son along and combined it into a family get away. The location is ideal for many of the sites, great dining walking distance away. Shraddha Carlin in Concierge was beyond the most helpful with suggestions and setting up ticket purchases for us. We would love to return.

I was so fortunate to have stayed at this beautiful hotel for my first trip to San Diego. My daughter arranged a much needed getaway for me and my sister and she chose this hotel based on reviews and the web site. Well first of all the Westgate Hotel is breathtaking...beautifully appointed with antiques and luxurious facilities. Definitely not your... More

Stayed 2 nights while visting San Diego. In a great location next to the restaurants on 5th ave. Beautiful entrance. Rooms were decent size and clean. There is a $15+tax resort fee per day which covered wifi.

Let's start with the location, excellent location, right in the heart of the Gaslamp and Downtown San Diego. Staff was excellent, Valet was excellent and the room was beautiful. Without a doubt one of our favorite hotels!!

I didn't intend to stay at this wonderful hotel; in fact I found it by mistake. Tired after a drive from L.A. I saw a large, inviting "Hotel Parking" sign, gave up and pulled in. Turns out, walking into a well-maintained palace can't be much different from checking into The Westgate in San Diego. Guests enter a spacious lobby with... More

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
