I was torn when trying to decide whether to give the Westgate in San Diego a 3 or a 4. Truthfully, I would have liked to have given it a 3 and 1/2. Many aspects of this hotel are wonderful, but there were a few things that were not.
My husband and I arrived on Friday night around 11:40. There was one man at the check in desk. He was one of the most rude and condescending people I have ever met. He talked down to us and acted like we were putting him out by checking into the hotel. (We booked the hotel on Hotwire and got a very good deal, I wonder if this was part of the reason). After he handed us our room keys, we asked about parking, he told us there was valet only and that they would be right with us. He then took the car keys and slid a valet claim towards my husband. We stood there, waiting and he stood there as well. After an uncomfortable amount of time I finally asked "Do we need to wait?", he answered "No". My husband asked how we got to our room and he pointed and said, "Um, The elevator", like we were stupid.
Our room was on the 5th floor. The room itself was lovely, comfortable beds, roomy bathroom, nice decor. Unfortunately, our room was located directly over the trolley station. The trolley runs most of the night and blows an extremely loud, deep horn every time in pulls into the station. Needless to say, we did not sleep very well that night. We went to CVS the next day and purchased ear plugs and that helped for the next couple of nights.
The location of the trolley was very convenient, we used it both of the days we went sight seeing, I just wish I wasn't trying to sleep right above it.
