The room was roomy and beautifully decorated, the staff was friendly and accommodating. We got a roll away bed for my sailor which worked out perfectly for him to feel comfortable and at home staying with us there.

First time here. Lovely hotel. Staff are really friendly. Love how the rooms are through one door then another to get to your room and the person next door, so no one can just knock on your door to disturb you! Definitely recommend this hotel. Walking distance to many things!

Brunch at the Westgate Hotel has always been a must for me. This elegant hotel with its over one hundred Baccarat crystal chandeliers and exquisite french furnishings is a sensual delight to the eyes. On Sunday I brought a party of people to enjoy the wonderful display of food amid such splendor and anticipated enjoying the playing of the grand...

Can't find anything to fault about this hotel. The location is great. We visited Coronado beach which is a must. It's easy to get to either on the tour bus or the ferry. The marina is lovely with lots of restaurants. We did find the food and drink expensive.

I booked this hotel for its location - downtown and close to the Gaslamp Quarter and affordability. It is within walking distance to everything. We were pleasantly surprised by just how beautiful the hotel interior was and the room did not disappoint either. Staff were superb, they make you feel like royalty. Unfortunately, we only stayed for 2 nights, but...

My daughter and I stayed at this hotel for 4 days and three nights. For the most part, this was an amazing stay. The hotel is absolutely lovely, all of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The beds and pillows were some, if not the best I've slept on. The hotel is very very clean. I even saw housekeeping...

When you see hotels like this online you never know if they are going to be well kept or just old because the décor is set in a certain time period. Well the Westgate has done it well. While some of the individuals in our large group thought it was a little over the top to have everything "gold", I...

I thought I'd tried them all. Crown room at the Del, Rancho Valencia, Monarch Bay, etc. This is by far the best. Large selection of really good food. Fresh sashimi and sushi, caviar, carving station, fresh doughnuts, crepes to die for, and so much more. I will be coming back here again and again!!!
