From beginning to end, the decor, service and room gets a five star rating. The room, behind double doors was large and luxurious with chocolates on the pillow every evening.There is so much storage I could have stayed a month and been comfortable. They have spent millions on French Renaissance art and sculpture. Walking around the halls is like being... More

I recently had the misfortune to stay at the Westgate for a three day business conference. First, the positives: the hotel is located in the trendy gaslight district, which provides dining and entertainment. In general, the hotel was clean and quiet. My room was clean, appropriately stocked upon check-in, and everything worked – for the most part. The bed and... More

I had made reservations for a 3 day weekend. We flew into San Diego and rented a car so we could experience the city along with attending a wedding. I want to be very fair with my evaluation as I write this. We arrived the hotel which is located in the heart of the "Gas Lamp" district which was very... More

I stayed 3 nights for Pediatric Convention. From the moment I entered the staff worked hard to be accommodating and helpful. They called room several times to check on how the stay was going. Pluses were a nice outdoor lap pool and a patio that was great to relax and read on. They even had a track for running. Only... More

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and I must say it is one of the finest places we have ever stayed. Beautiful, old world elegance, very nicely appointed rooms and the staff was superb. The first night we called room service for a bucket of ice. The next 2 nights they just brought ice to the room without... More

I love the old feel of this hotel, with the beautiful lobby and rooms. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and spacious. The staff is excellent; especially the bellman Chris. He meets you with a warm genuine smile and makes you feel right at home. If you want a special hotel, this is the place. The gym is outside and... More

I didn't think this hotel was my style when I first checked in. It was the conference host hotel and the rate was discounted so that's how I chose it. I was greeted by friendly staff and given this very interesting key. It looks like a regular key (not key card) but it's electronic! How cool! The rest of the... More

Great place, wonderful staff, would definitely stay again. Very elegant decor with beautiful chandeliers and fresh flowers. Staff were very helpful, Loved the jazz night around the pool area.Handy to public transport. Street noise could be a bit of an issue for some (Not us) .

This is an elegant hotel with beautiful and spacious rooms. But beyond the luxury, this hotel has excellent service. Everyone on staff could not be nicer or more accommodating ! A special shout out to the concierge, Shraddha Carlin. She is beautiful, kind and above all well informed about everything to do in the area. She knows all the restaurants... More

Everyone was so enthusiastic helping and just being awesome. Do recommend this place. Always very attentive, only downside I was there for a wedding and the place needs to be check there hall and bride prep room for details, some walls wear stained and some light fixtures wear worn off. But either from that the service was great.
