Thirty minutes before arriving at the Westgate Hotel, I checked their website, which advertised Friday happy hour from 5-7 with $7 cocktails and appetizers. Instead we had to pay $12 per cocktail and much more fore appetizers. When we arrived we were told that because there was a Prix Fix menu in the dining room that evening, they were not... More

This hotel has all the amenities and the staff is courteous and helpful. We always feel pampered when we visit there. There is a lovely pool and great restaurant. We like to stay on a high floor to see the beautiful San Diego sights from high up.

Picked this hotel because of it's location....was able to walk to all Gaslight district activities, such as Petco Park, Midway, ferries, restaurants, and shopping. The room was clean and bright. We were welcomed with a bottle of lemon water and chocolates. Did have a recurring issue with getting enough towels, three of us shared a room, yet we continued to... More

Hotel is very centrally located but quiet (aleit for fire engines all night). Old French style which can give a slightly tired look to the place but is different enough to make up for it. Rooms very large and spacious. Large pool on the roof with plenty of sunshine. Indian Lady on the conceige desk is very eccentric and very... More

This is a very pleasant hotel in the middle of San Diego with kind, helpful and courteous staff. The concierge on duty was always available to help with trips and visits. She always looked beautiful in her saris. The rooms were very spacious and clean with a lovely turn down service at 6.00 pm each night that included filling the... More

I am a Hilton junkie, and I was reluctant to try a new place. It was wonderful. Rooms are good size for a city venue, amenities are more than sufficient, and the staff is very accommodating. Location of the hotel is ideal. Common areas are similarly good.

Older but elegant, wife described it best as old Hollywood. AC could use improvement. Friendly staff customer very oriented. Showing some wear but deals can be had if you shop around. Brunch here is a must and a value and well worth the price.

The Westgate is furnished in a French Louis 15th style that I found a little odd but it is comfortable hotel. The room was quite large. The bathroom was well equipped. The salt water pool was very pleasant but a few more sun beds would have been good. I didn't eat there so I can't comment on the food. The... More

Flight attendant wife suggested this hotel as she had stayed on layover. While the exterior looks like a cold, soulless, high-rise business building, the interior is old world elegance. Lobby is huge and decorated with antique furniture and wall hangings. Concierge is one of the best I have encountered. Hotel is exceptionally quiet and rooms are very large and very... More

Great location and a really nice hotel. Quick walk to the excellent Gaslamp district, convention centre and waterfront. All facilities are first rate, staff are very friendly and helpful and from the photo,s the interior decor is something to behold. Stayed at the Westgate twice now and will no doubt be back.
