We stayed at the Westin Gaslamp in early April for 5 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is very well located downtown (near the heart of the Gaslamp District which hosts a lot of restaurants, nightlife and shopping). It's also close to Balboa Park.
The hotel itself has recently been renovated and is very clean and contemporary. The room was large and the bed comfortable. They are also making an attempt to "go green"; they allow the option to decline housekeeping each day during your stay for a $5 credit back. We declined and received $20 back off of our room. You can still ask for clean towels/toiletries and receive this kickback.
My husband and I both used the fitness room during our stay and it's very spacious and updated. Most hotels we visit have a really cramped and sweaty fitness room so this was a pleasant surprise.
My only negative comment is that parking is really expensive ($36/night). It's valet and basically your only option. We can be frugal (epecially with parking - we hate paying for parking!) so it was tough for us to shell out this kind of cash. Since the parking was so steep we ended up paying more than we would have liked. We were aware of the parking situation before we arrived so it wasn't a surprise, but I wanted to point it out in case others weren't.
