Westgate Hotel San Diego

Stepping into the Westgate Hotel San Diego is like stepping back to a historic European era. Everything about the Westgate San Diego stands apart from other San Diego hotels, from the crystal chandeliers to the beautiful finished antique furniture to each minute detail that comes together to offer a premier experience. The incredible artwork throughout the hotel and the prestigious and rare antiques are testaments to the ambitious attention to detail. Together, it shows a keen willingness to take it all to the next level to create upscale European ambiance.

Between accommodations and the incredible Le Spa at the Westgate San Diego, guests might think they've stumbled upon an Eden in the heart of the city. Traditional European elegance is found in every nook and cranny of the Westgate. For one, the rooms are surprisingly spacious and packed with Richelieu specialty furnishings. The beds have down comforters, down pillows, and high thread count linens. Amenities, or "accoutrements" as they are called at the hotel, include full brass and marble bathrooms, imported furniture, and elegant wool carpet.

The Westgate San Diego offers a choice in standard guestrooms (all 400 square feet), larger Royal Suites, a Governors Suite, and Presidential Suites, which are top of the line. All rooms feature 32-inch TVs, DVD players, separate phone lines, a personal safe, and a large work desk. The higher the suite's price, the more room you get, with the Presidential Suite offering 1,500 square feet of graciously appointed space. Guests will also enjoy many other services provided by this elegant downtown San Diego hotel, including a spa where a host of specialty treatments are available, a floral boutique, a gift shop, a top-of-the-line business center, and a host of vacation packages. The concierge arranges cruises, tours, golf, sailing, and more for guests upon request.

The Westgate Hotel San Diego enjoys a prime location east of the San Diego Harbor where the nearby Maritime Museum, Harborview, and USS Midway offer even more things to do by the waterfront. Even closer to the hotel, guests will enjoy a quick walk to The Westfield Shoppingtown Horton Plaza and the Marston Mall Shopping Center for world-class shopping experiences. The historic Balboa Theater is situated due north of this downtown San Diego hotel for a chance to enjoy theater nightlife. Music lovers might consider a visit to the House of Blues, east of the hotel, for an evening of live music.

The Gaslamp Quarter is also only a few blocks away where the best of city dining, nightlife, and shopping is all found. Many visitors on San Diego vacations spend much of their time on tours of the Gaslamp Quarter, enjoying all the endless possibilities for both day and night. There are several other benefits of staying at a downtown San Diego hotel, the best of which is being situated near all the famous attractions. A short drive and guests can reach any number of exciting destinations like the San Diego Zoo, Sea World, Little Italy, beautiful Balboa Park, and even Legoland. There is simply no better location, and some would argue, no better hotel than the Westgate Hotel San Diego.
