“Super hotel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

Were made very welcome. Room very large with everything in it. So close to the Gaslamp quarter 5 minutes walk to 5th avenue. On the day we left a special taxi fare was arranged by the hotel. Public transport on the doorstep as well.

Room Tip: get a room as high up as possible nice views.

Dear 234Joost234,

I love the words "Super Hotel" to describe The Westin San Diego Gaslamp Quarter! And I am very happy to know that you enjoyed interacting with the staff and relaxing in your spacious room. And, as you mentioned, just about everything you could want is nothing more than a few minutes walk from our front door.

We hope to have the chance to welcome you back on your next trip to the States.

Be well,

Keri Robinson

What a time we had at Pinzimini right in the Westin. Took the lady and another couple out for what we thought would be a quick drink, and ended up staying for small bites and a few rounds. The bar is appealing, quite different in shape, color, and arrangement; quite inviting. Because we had a party of 4 we choose to sit in the casual couches. Grabbed a couple Moscow Mules (great) and some Bellinis for the ladies. Marissa had the drinks there in a snap, had a smile, and made some excellent recommendations for small bites. We had some Calamari and a few flatbreads. Not only was it good food, but the service was above par. We were able to tune in the big-screen and enjoy small talk over drinks. We ended up ordering a few more rounds and this ended up being our ultimate destination for the night. We will be coming back soon as we are residents of the downtown/gaslamp area.

We stayed here in March and it was centrally located and had all the amenities that could be desired. The kids loved the pool/hot tub and the staff greeted them with color books on check-in.

The gym was well equipped and we never had any problems getting in time on any of the equipment.

The rooms themselves had a nice amount of space for our family of 4. I especially enjoyed the soundproofing and quietness of the rooms. Several rooms on our floor had guest who had babies. When we were in our rooms you couldn't even hear the slightest of the noise of any cries. The only way I knew there were infants, was when we ran into the parents in the hallways with the crying children.

My wife was able to walk to her conference at the San Diego conference center and there is a convenient full scale grocery store about a block away.

Everyone their was very friendly and courteous to both the adults AND my kids which goes a long way in my book. I think you can learn a lot from the way an adult treats a child.

Kudos to Paul to the main lobby! He was both helpful with directions and information as well as being a genuinely happy and inspired person. We will certainly look for him when we return.

My stay at the Westin was good (as always), but the service was great. I forgot my phone charger and Steve (at the front desk) lent me his own overnight! My phone was charged and I got the emails I needed.
Thanks, Steve!

We traveled with two young girls. Hotel had perfect location to where we all wanted to go. We were able to walk to a lot of things. Hotel and rooms were very nice. Best part was our concierge Julliene. She was very helpful and friendly. Helped us with several things/outings. The girls loved seeing her each day. She would visit with the girls every time we saw her. This made them feel special. They were sad when we left because they were going to miss her. She is very knowledgable about the area and had great advice for things to do.

Dear Brittney C,

Nothing could be better than knowing your girls so enjoyed seeing Julianne each day that they were going to miss her when you left. That certainly says a lot! I have to say though, I’m not surprised. Julianne is part of our terrific Concierge team and it is wonderful to know the memories she helped you make.

The next time you’re looking to escape a Minnesota winter, we hope to have the chance to welcome you back to sunny San Diego and The Westin San Diego Gaslamp Quarter.

Be well,

We have stayed here twice. In August for our wedding anniversary and had such a positive experience that we decided to return for my birthday in March. It appears the hotel spares no expense in teaching their employees how to truly care for their guests. We were greeted both times by very helpful, welcoming and polite valets / bellhops / front desk staff. Danny was our bellhop last time and was very nice. He left such an impression that when we encountered him again this trip we immediately recognized him as the helpful guy from our last trip - the great guy who sent up strawberries and champagne for our 24th anniversary. This time he helped us to get the same room we had last time and gave us several yummy restaurant recommendations. The location, on top of the service and accommodations, makes this hotel pretty near perfect - love being able to walk to everything. Steven (at the front desk) was great in getting our room ready asap and helping with a few other items.

Great hotel in Gaslamp with easy access to Horton Plaza. Rooms are not huge, but arranged well with plenty of seating if you have a few people over. Their signature heavenly bed is a definite plus and made for a great night's sleep. There's a bar and restaurant onsite as well as many nearby options. Taxis are also readily available when exiting the hotel. Cost to airport was $15 (before tip and no traffic). Would definitely stay here again!
