My wife and I enjoyed a very nice stay at the Westin Gaslamp. Very convenient location to Gaslamp and it's restaurants and night life. Large shopping Mall just a few steps away and grocery store just around the corner. CVS by mall also carries some groceries. Staff was excellent, the hotel does have a small coffee shop, but we opted for the Panera Bread just accross the street. You are close to the waterfront, 5 min car ride or approx 20 min walk. But this area is great for walking. Would not hesitate to stay here again.
