Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Nestled in the heart of the Gaslamp Quarter, The Westin San Diego is a favorite among guests for its prime location, within walking distance to numerous attractions and dining options. Visitors are greeted with a welcoming atmosphere, spacious and pristine rooms adorned with modern touches. The inclusive resort fee, covering perks such as drinks and harbor cruises, garners high marks for value, although opinions on overall value for money are mixed. The hotel's staff is consistently celebrated for their professionalism and warmth. While the rooms are generally lauded for their comfort, some guests mention noise concerns depending on the room's location.

Great help from security staff , specifically Michael when some of my packages were delayed. He rerouted them to me promptly and easily and was very helpful during the process. Hotel itself was also nice and well situated in Gas lamp district with lots of options within walking distance. Clean, Safe and comfortable.

We had not stayed at Westin before and were very impressed. Erica at the front desk was a delight. She was so helpful and a bright shining star after a long flight. The food and bar were excellent, and our room/bed was what was needed. The destination fee was worth it. If you can, go on the boat tour.

This is the worst establishment with the least friendliest staff. I mistakenly took this place to be Westin Bayside San Diego. The bald guy was not helpful to me whatsoever and very dismissive. the other staff members were a lot nicer giving me direction to the Westin Bayside. what an appalling experience

Michael with security helped locate and load pelican cases into my car from our meeting this past weekend with KLS martin. Was a huge help with communication and assisting with movement of our items. I would highly recommend staying at the Westin Hotel.

Outstanding, helpful and friendly service from the concierge gave us a great day out to see the old town. We were given maps and information about the best restaurants to suite my taste and some good ideas for souvenir shopping to suite my budget. Advice was also given with a good sense of humor

Not only is the location wonderful but so were the front desk employees. Always a smile on their faces and so helpful. We had the buffet breakfast two mornings and the servers were also extremely friendly. Would go back there the next time we are in San Diego.

Good standard hotel. There for business about a 15 minute walk to convention center. Centrally located to a lot of restaurants and bars. About 10 minutes from airport. Hotel bar is nice and was very active each night of my stay. Plat status - free breakfast was great. Could order buffet or a la carte.

I spent the day in San Diego to visit museums and see a live show. I went into the Westin to ask for directions and get information. I was having trouble connecting with a Uber driver and the concierge, Zozima Mills, could not have been more helpful. She also helped make suggestions for the museums. In this day and age of lacking customer service I was so appreciative of her professional and kind manner. She deserves a raise!!!

We booked through the blind side of Hotwire & were thrilled to get this location at a fantastic price. We arrived late at night, after 10 pm & a long cross country flight. They have security in place at the front door. You need a room key or you have to wait to be buzzed in. They were monitoring the cameras & we were let in before we could even knock. You get free drink tickets for every day but since the lobby bar was already closed, they treated us to a bottle of champagne. It wasn't good champagne; it had a beer top not a cork but the thought was sweet. Then they gave us directions to some nearby fun bars in the heart of the gaslamp district. The rooftop pool was in the shade which was a tad disappointing because it was too cool to enjoy. The children of some other guests weren't bothered by the temperature. They seemed to have a great time. IMO the hotel needs to put some type of ice water dispenser in the pool area for the guests because it wasn't near anything else, not even a vending machine. The bed was comfortable. The towels & amenities were luxurious. I very much enjoyed the lavender essential oil. We're walkers so we enjoyed the stroll to Little Italy and the Midway but that might be too far for some. Coming back from those long walks it was wonderful to enjoy our daily complementary beverage at the lobby bar. There's a Dunkin Donuts around the block. There are good places for breakfast near the nearby Courthouse. There is a cute park by the construction but we were not bothered by noise. Except when we were outside we didn't even hear the protest that was going on. It was far to the nearest place to get razors and sun screen.
