I was in San Diego for the first time in early November of 2014, having never been to the city before I stayed at the Westin hotel out of suggestions from coworkers and had a great time.
The hotel is located basically right next to down town San Diego, it's within walking distance to the Gaslamp district and little Italy. It is not far from the airport either but I took a rental car so I had to hitch a shuttle ride to and from the airport to the car rental place. The hotel is kept very clean, has a very modern look to it as soon as you walk in the front door, it has 20+ floors and my room was on the 13th floor which made me a bit uneasy, knowing I'm this high up in an earthquake zone but that was all gone once I'm settled in. The room was clean and spacious, I had a good view of Broadway and I can see the Gaslamp district in the distance. The hotel didn't have free internet which was expected from any hotel near downtown in a big city. The hotel has a very good breakfast, a bit pricy but the food was really good and we get a pretty sizeable selection from the buffet. The hotel bar has a full complement of drinks readily available and it opens late. The layout of the hotel is a bit unusual, first few floors of the hotel are actually offices rented out mostly to law firms apparently, due to the hotel's close proximity to the courthouses in downtown.
I stayed 4 nights in this hotel during my work trip to San Diego and I couldn't imagine a better experience than the one I had, usually I'm always anxious on the last day of my trip upon returning home but this time I was a little bit sad to leave. San Diego was a great city and I definitely had one of the best time on all my travels and the hotel has definitely added to the experience.
