We stayed in this hotel on our wedding night. The service the hotel staff delivered was impeccable. The restaurant service was fantastic as well! This hotel is clean, classy and not stuffy like some hotels. Thank you for providing such an elegant environment for us, Westgate Hotel.

We stayed for a conference two nights. The room was very well appointed and quiet. The hotel is traditional with fresh flowers and classic rooms that remind me of some of the best hotels in Europe. The room service was very good and reasonable. The food and service in the restaurant was also very good. Overall a wonderful stay!

Beautiful alternative to the bland chain hotels. The property is not old but has the feel of a classic luxury hotel in Paris. Our suite was large and very well furnished, but best of all is the concierge - Shraddha - who should give lessons to others in her profession on how to make guests feel special. We look forward...

I chose to stay here based on memories of staying here previously 10 years ago. It was every bit as beautiful as I remembered, although the room I had years ago had a larger bathroom with two separate places to shower/bathe (maybe a different type of room). The room itself is more spacious than in other hotels. The beds were... More

Much is said in the other reviews about the "Old World" appearance and charm, and I couldn't agree more, but the best part of the Westgate experience is the people with whom you interact. The staff, including the concierge, have always been wonderful. I have stayed here several times, and I am have reserved rooms again in May. The complaints... More

I stayed at the Westgate last May while I was in town for the NAFSA San Diego conference. I must say I didn't really expect much because I knew it was an older hotel. I was pleased to find that the both the room and the service were still up to par. This hotel is quite elaborate. The lobby looks... More

The Westgate is a nice, somewhat worn hotel. The staff is very friendly. Big room and good bed. The noise coming from traffic is enormous. From 5 am the trams are sounding their horns non-stop. This problem needs to be addressed- the winsows do not isolate for noise.

Many options of places to go and things to do from The Westgate Hotel. Restaurant is a little pricey but there are literally hundreds of venues nearby which are fun, entertaining and affordable, all within walking distance. The hotel has an okay gym but the pool with a cushioned track is the place to work out. There are also treadmills... More

I stayed at the Westgate (via Hotwire) for 2-nights and loved my stay. The hotel is centrally located with everything you need in a very short walking distance. Check-in was a breeze with no one else in line and my room was even ready 5 hours early so they let me in - always a great first impression! My room... More
