Westgate Hotel

1055 Second Avenue

Located in the historic Gaslamp Quarter district of San Diego, the Westgate Hotel offers guests a combination of European elegance and California style.

The convenient location of the Westgate Hotel puts guests within a short distance of downtown shopping and entertainment, including Balboa Park, the San Diego Zoo, and Horton Plaza, which has more than 140 restaurants and shops.

The hotel itself also includes dining options, such as the contemporary French restaurant Le Fontainebleau and Le Grande Café, which offers pasta and steak dishes. The Gourmet Wine and Delicatessen imports fine chocolate and other international treats, and there is 24-hour room service available as well.
