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.

This hotel offers an amazing experience when visiting San Diego. It is located four blocks away from the Gaslamp Quarter and there is a tram station on the same block. 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

My Wife and I stayed here last week during my conference at the convention center. It is very high class with exceptional customer service. The Check in process was fast and easy. When we got to our room it had a wonderful view. Every day they left free bottled water in the fridge and turned down the beds for us... More

We came here for a great weekend with friends and reserved two rooms that were connected by a small hallway. One room was fine, but the other room's window was open upon arrival which we thought was odd. As we walked in, the smell of barf overcame all of us and we realized there was a slightly dark area on... More

My husband and I stayed at the Westgate during my conference 6/6/15 - 6/12/15. We enjoyed every detail of this hotel from the amazing staff, delicious Sunday brunch, room service and nightly turn down service. I admit I was a bit hesitant when looking at some of the other reviews but that immediately went out the window once we stepped... More

We stayed at the hotel while I was in town for conference at San Diego convention center. We rarely stayed at the hotel as there are lots to do in San Diego. We even felt like we didn't get to do them all. The hotel is an European style. Know that there is a $30 valet only charge for parking... More

I cannot express how happy I was with our experience at The Westgate. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, the service was top notch. Our favorite things were the turn down service and the free bottles of water that come with the room. I know those are very small perks, but I guess I got accustomed... More
