Lisa at the front desk is exceptional. She went above and beyond with a smile on her face. She was a warm welcome to my daily returns while in town on business. Very impressed with the service and the pleasant accommodations.

Hotel's Favorite
Alyssa and her team really went above and beyond to accommodate my friends and I in our trip to San Diego at the Westin and we’d 100% choose this hotel again for any future trips to San Diego. I booked 2 rooms for our group and she was able to honor a suite night request (I have Ambassador status with Marriott) & also ensure our 2nd room connected to the suite!! The suite was huge which was amazing so that we could spread out. She also arranged for a birthday cake to be delivered to the room for my friend’s birthday which was such a fun surprise. The hotel staff was very responsive to our requests for extra toiletries, towels, robes, etc. and took away our trash/dirty towels every evening. They even found an HDMI cord so that we could connect our computer to the tv and watch a movie. We felt it was very clean & everyone wears masks in common spaces. They have a good amount of services even in COVID (e.g., the airport shuttle, breakfast downstairs in the lobby, etc.). The sunsets from the room were beautiful and we even enjoyed the pool! Overall it was a fantastic value and I’m very thankful to Alyssa and her staff for their warm hospitality!!

We are Platimum Elite members. We arrived at the hotel and we were warmly greeted by Lisa at the front desk. She thanked us for our loyalty and checked us in efficiently. She gave us an upgraded room with a water view. We told her it was our anniversary trip and after we had dinner and returned to our room she surprised us with Champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. They were both delicious. All of the staff we have seen so far have been very nice. We are looking forward to the rest of our stay here.

Lisbon, Portugal3 contributions4 helpful votes
I am here for work and unfamiliar with the area. I came home late after a long work day to see the parking deck locked and wasn't sure what to do. Lisa identified that I was trying to get in and was able to quickly assist, opened the gate, and asked if I needed anything further. I said I hadn't had a chance to grab a bite all day. Without missing a beat she offered food and made sure I was full. It was incredible the level of service Lisa provided. Caring, considerate, and anticipating my needs, her customer service alone makes me want stay again at Westin. LISA IS A ROCK STAR!

Some friends and i stayed here this August and had a great experience, we got to the hotel relatively late at night and had an easy check in; we were able to easily change rooms, extend our checkout, and more thanks to Lisa at the front desk, who was extremely helpful and kind.
