We opted to stay at this property based on what I had read here. We have been SPG Gold members for 6 years & own 2 Starwood vacation villas. This was honestly our worst experience at a Starwood Property. When we checked in, the front desk agent was rude & would only offer us a mid level room upgrade with a view of the roof of Horton Plaza. I spoke to a different agent about a different room but was told there was none better. This was despite the fact that on the hotel website, there was both bay view rooms & suites available to reserve for our dates when I checked that afternoon. The room was small with 2 full size beds, not exactly what I expected from a Westin. On our second day, I called for our car from the valet before going downstairs. Despite this, we still waited almost 15 minutes for our car while others presented their cards to the window & were serviced first. We also did not receive housekeeping services on our second day. We had been at the safari park all day & returned around 6:30pm hoping to take a shower to refresh. When I called about this & voiced my displeasure about the service, I was offered 200 points for all my troubles but asked for a different room instead. I was again refused.
The only bright point of our stay was when Gabriel printed my sea world tickets since the printer in the business center in the lobby was broken while we were there.
On our next trip to San Diego we will definitely stay elsewhere.
