Quaint old fashioned hotel, but all the upgrades you need for a lovely relaxing stay. Massive rooms, flat screen tv. Wi- Fi Tea and coffee. Beautiful bathroom, shower etc etc. fine soaps and shampoos. A little touch ice in the bucket already in your room. Good bar for early aperitifs, nice restaurant some might find a little expensive. Breakfast a...

You're greeted by a wonderfully elegant and spacious reception area, the rooms equally so. All the staff were incredibly affable and helpful and the hotel itself is immaculate. Turn left out of the hotel and you're in the Gaslamp district, a lively and fun area for party-goers and shopper alike, turn right and you'll find a tram stop to take...

The rooms are comfortable, spacious and spotlessly clean. I found all the staff to be courteous, helpful and approachable. The best thing that stands out about this hotel is the food! I ordered three lots of room service and it was all exceptionally brilliant. It was hot in temperature, great quality, appealing to the eye, just enjoyable. Food for all...

The valet parking attendants were very friendly and well mannered. The lobby is small but beautiful with a few chandeliers and nice staircase. The front desk personal was friendly. All the employees are not in a uniform but rather in very nice attire. Every employee we encountered made some sort of small talk with myself and my 12 year old...

The service at this hotel surpasses any I've ever encountered. Breakfast is amazing. Music in the lounge or rooftop is a very nice touch. Facilities are tasteful and immaculate. If you are going to San Diego, this is definitely the place to stay.

I stayed at the Westgate for a week attending a conference. I think the hotel might be fine if one is on holiday but in terms of staying there for a business trip it’s a big “No.” For starters I reserved a 2 double bed room and when I arrived the day before everyone was coming into town the front...
