San Diego, California1 contribution
Me and my girlfriend stayed at the Westgate Hotel in November for two nights and it was amazing! Sarah provided amazing service and made our stay very enjoyable. We were able to check out our hotel room before making our upgrade/purchase, which was a huge plus since we were spending so much money, we wanted our stay to be worth it. Sarah made sure that our expectations were met! I would definitely come back to the Westgate hotel when I visit San Diego again!

Hotel's Favorite
Due to unfortunate circumstances my husband and I were not able to take the vacation we had initially planned, so we opted for a staycation. I knew the westgate’s pool was open and serviced and that was enough for me. What I didnt know at the time of booking, was how amazing our staycation would be! The westgate treated us to phenomenal service our entire stay. I mentioned our staycation and that I was a healthcare worker and they promptly rolled out the red carpet to make us feel so incredibly welcomed. Service at the pool was impeccable! Drinks were delicious, service was timely. Cannot say enough for location, close to restaurants, shopping, gaslamp district, little italy and sea port village. Will definitely be staying again and encouraging others to do the same!

What a great place to stay. I don’t think photos do it justice. Our room was great. Very clean a so spacious. Lizzy at the front desk took great care of us, along with Beatriz the manager and Paul and George at the valet. Great bang for buck and a perfect spot to enjoy San Diego! We will be back.

The Westgate was beautiful, clean and had the best customer service. We checked in late due to another issue at a hotel and Sarah C was the best. She made sure we got a room and felt safe. She went above and beyond for us during the course of our stay. All of the staff we encountered were great as well. Will definitely return.
