The Westgate is one of those special hotels you will remember for the rest of your life. Impeccable decor and world class service. Anything you need is a phone call away. The front desk staff was very professional and got us in our room earlier than we anticipated. Shraddha Carlin was wonderful booking 2 trips for us. In addition her...

Not only is Shraddha Carlin an excellent concierge, she would be the reason I would return to The Westgate Hotel in San Diego, California! Do not get me wrong, The Westgate Hotel is beautiful and inviting. The decor, French antiques with warm rich colors on the walls. AND, Shraddha was ever present when calling on the telephone (from the east...

We were in town for business but we felt like we were on vacation. The staff were always welcoming, smiling and at the ready. Without our asking, they upgraded our room and we had a beautiful room with water views and a view of the Coronado bridge, not to mention the bright lights of the city at night. We stepped...

I booked this hotel because I heard it had an old world elegance to it. We decided to stay during the week in order to avoid crowds and the possibility of not getting the pampered service we so desired. For the most part, this hotel did offer just that. Valet and Bell hop: I know there might have been some...

A charming hotel centrally located with good facilities and a reasonable to good level of service. Reception staff particularly helpful, Room was clean, tidy and spacious with all room facilities you would expect. A grand hotel if a little dated, but would recommend.

My family and I reserved 2 rooms and at check in I was snubbed by the front desk employee when I inquired about rooms on the higher levels. I was told the hotel was completely booked before I could even finish my request. He was extremely arrogant and unfriendly. When we checked into our rooms, we noticed immediately the shower...

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.

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!
