Location in walking distance for restaurants, pier, shops and activities. Able to check in at 11am no fees! Concierge gave great activity and dining tips. Can't say enough good things about this hotel!

I was in town for a conference and stayed at the Westgate for three nights. I would definitely stay here again! The hotel was nicely appointed and within walking distance of many attractions. Nice touches like upscale bathroom toiletries and turn down service!

Found this gem on the internet on a trip to celebrate my birthday - great location within walking distance to Little Italy and the Gaslamp Quarter - beautifully decorated, elegant, and meticulously maintained. We had researched attractions before our arrival so didn't really talk to the concierge until the last few days of our trip - What an asset to... More

Let me preface this with the fact I have never taken the time to write a negative review for a company or business ever before. With that said, the customer experience I had to endure at my recent stay at The Westgate Hotel has promoted me to express my disdain and sheer disappointment. I booked a standard room at The...

Dear Mr. Mendoza, Thank you for speaking with me this morning regarding your recent stay. Your opinion matters to us and I apologize that we traded telephone calls previously and were not able to speak sooner. I appreciate your time and allowing me to explain how our procedures work when issues arise with an outsourced ATM. As you agreed after... More

The Westgate was the last stay on a California tour from the UK. A fitting end. San Diego is a superb city. The westgate is well placed to walk around and see most sights within 20-30 mins or so. Very helpful staff when we stayed and happy to advise and research on what to do, what was going on. Good... More

It's a very nice hotel that's unfortunately trending on the downhill side of the bell curve called "passed it's prime", and in need of a major upgrade. The staff was extremely accommodating. The food... Not so much. Fairly conveniently located. It doesn't affect me as someone who lived in Manhattan in the 70's and 80's, but the amount of homeless... More

We were relocated to the Westgate Hotel from the Manchester Grant Hyatt because they were overbooked so we didn't choose for the Westgate in the first place and we would never have. It simply isn't our style and that of course is a matter of taste. I can imagine that many Americans love that old fashioned European style but I... More

This is an outstanding hotel but may not suit everyone as it reminds me out an old Parisian establishment. The staff are fantastic,especially Shraddha, the chief concierge who actually was on her day off & came into work to get me a special car to hire. Love this place !

We were in San Diego for a large convention. The Westgate was one of the less expensive options available. We were very pleasantly surprised to find a large, beautifully furnished, clean room and bathroom. The Westgate is elegant, quiet and very comfortable. Walking distance to great restaurants. The weather was spectacular.

My wife and I stayed at The Westgate to attend a celebration my company was having. The valet greeted us with a smile, as did the Front Desk clerk; both were very pleasant, cheerful and accommodating. The clerk asked the Concierge escort us to our room; Shraddha is such a delightful and engaging lady! She's so warm and welcoming; she... More
