“Excellent hotel. Great device. Exceptional location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

This hotel is great. The staff is very professional and friendly.

It is located in the gaslamp district, within walking distance to shops and restaurants.

Our room was really nice and definitely worth the price. The in room dining menu has some really good items on it.

The concierge is definitely worth taking advantage off, as they will let you know about all the local deals.

We will definitely stay here again.

I lived in San Diego for years and came back for a 2 day trip with my husband. This hotel is in a great location if you want to stay in the Gaslamp. But - the clientele "hanging around" the hotel is "iffy". The lobby is very busy with lots of folks hanging about. The parking is also a challenge - when asked where to park, the valet simply told us to circle around and look for a garage. It was $20 per night. The service was very good though - very high end and the hotel staff is the best you can get. If you want to stay in Gaslamp, this place will do just fine.

Dear Brandis K

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We are incredibly proud of our attentive team whom as you noted are the best. Being in the heart of downtown San Diego gives us the unique opportunity of being in the center of it all. We look forward to your next 2 day trip so that we may host you again.

Until next time…

The Westin is ideally located within easy walking distance of the mall, restaurants, nightclubs and other attractions in the Gaslamp Quarter. The rooms are what you would expect from a Westin. What you DON'T EXPECT is the outrageous parking fee. I know almost all of the downtown hotels charge parking, but $35 dollars per night is a little steep. Because of this, although the hotel was nice, I will never stay there again. There are other hotels in the area that charge less or stay by the harbor just a mile or so away and jump on the trolley.

Dear Joan G

I am so glad to hear you enjoyed our ideal location and the ease of being able to walk to so many different things. The Gaslamp Quarter has over 100 restaurants in addition to numerous shops and nightclubs - so it’s perfect for everyone’s tastes!

We do offer room packages that include complimentary breakfast, parking and more. Our overnight parking fee is competitive with other downtown hotels, and in some cases, lower than similar hotels. Perhaps you might find one of these packages preferable and would consider giving us an opportunity to welcome you back on your next trip. We’d love to see you again!

Kind regards,

Keri Robinson

Stayed here for a conference in August. Good location next to a mall and you can walk to Gaslamp restaurants, San Diego Convention center (10-15 min). Rooms were very big and clean. Property was well kept. Had a bit of an issue with Check In....really long lines, took forever. Other than that the stay was really pleasant. Staff was friendly.

Dear JPBJMB

We do have a great location! And as you mentioned, not only within steps of the Gaslamp Quarter but also just a quick refreshing walk to the Convention Center, and Petco Park too! We think this is the best of both worlds. Whether here on business or pleasure, the ease of access to whatever is on the agenda is undeniable!

Typical Westin experience and comfort...convenient location to walk the Gas Lamp Quarter. The Horton mall is right next door, if that excites you. Our room had an unfortunate view of the office building across the street, but I guess that's city living for you. There must be a fire station nearby, as I heard the EMS sirens all night.

This was a beautiful, clean hotel with always friendly service from the time you walked in until the time you left. it is attached to the Horton Plaza mall (gave you something to do in the evenings) and a few blocks walk to the convention center. The beds were heavenly, just as they described, and I was lucky to get a room on the top floor with a bay view. The pool was nice, always clean and always a chair available. Sunny pool in the afternoons helped after a long day of conferences. Yes, elevators were sometimes slow but that didn't ruin my stay. There is a Panera right across the courtyard from the hotel and the Gaslamp District was only a few short blocks away. I'd totally stay here again if I'm ever in the area.

Room Tip: Try to book a higher floor bay view room - nice views!

Dear Lisa S,

Wonderful to hear how you enjoyed your recent stay with us and took full advantage of all the hotel and our great location have to offer. Being attached to the Westfield Shopping & Entertainment mall is certainly a plus! Along with many specialty stores, the mall is anchored with a Nordstrom and Macy’s – in addition to movie theaters and even day spas! Then again, as you mentioned, it’s always nice to just be able to relax by our pool with a cool drink in hand.

If your travels ever bring you out to San Diego again, we’d love the opportunity to welcome you back!

Be well,

Keri Robinson

This was our first stay at this location. My wife surprised me with a little stay-cation for my birthday. Molly R from the Concierge service, Dulce and Amy B. from the front desk were excellent! My wife casually mentioned that it was my bday, and Dulce allowed us to check in a little early. We dropped off our stuff, and headed out to lunch. When we got back, there was a bottle of champagne with a handwritten note from Molly and the staff, wishing me a happy Bday and a nice stay. The next morning, Amy B stopped us near the front desk, and asked us if we enjoyed our stay. Nothing but kudos for this team. Customer service means the world to me in my profession, and to have these ladies do a little extra something for us, means we will now always stay here in downtown S.D. Thank you very much for making this mini vacay great!
