Editorial review:

This old-world place features contemporary conveniences, a beautiful setting with antiques throughout, French tapestries, Persian rugs, and gorgeous rooms that are uniquely decorated. The service is good and there are good sunset views from the rooftop; however, some critics felt that there were other, more fun places to stay.

    Very high quality hotel, unlike many other motel-type establishments further north in ca. Great value for money, therefore. Location could not be more convenient. Highly recommend.

    Parking at $30+ a night a rip-off but the boys friendly enough to tell where to park for less. Kudos to them for that.

    The Westgate was a beautiful upscale hotel. We really enjoyed the location as we could walk to shopping, resturants, the Midway and to the Gaslamp area very easily. The parking fee was high on top of the room rate and the tub was slow to drain otherwise....great hotel. We will stay again!

    Parking fee was high on top of the room rate. The tub was very slow to drain.

    I really liked the personal attention that each employee gave

    The only bad thing is that the mattresses were extremely uncomfortable. It's a shame because of the luxurious ambiance that surrounds the entire facility but I do have to be honest!

    The hotel is overpriced. Even when we paid $370/night, they charged us an extra $5 for a toothbrush! A luxury four-star hotel shouldn't charge such a silly amount for a toothbrush. I have stayed in countless four and five stars hotel and they never charged for toothbrushes or razors.

    Hotel Staff were great, particularly Amanda, and a lady in indian outfit. they were so kind and helpful. Classic decoration also.

    No buffet breakfast, but ala carte. That was good in overall, but take time for waiting than buffet.

    The location was very good and very close to the San Diedo zoo, which was our purpose of visit. The suite is very large and very well decorated.

    Nice hotel, friendly staff and clean big room

    On the mall side of the hotel there was sometimes a bit of noise from the police and or fire departments.

    It was like going back in time to the good old days. I enjoyed staying here.

    I would have liked more facilities at the health spa like a steam room or sauna.

    The decor is fabulous! We do not like the new contempory hotels. The staff was superb! Even as we paused in front of the hotel; a doorman came out to tell us what our options were. Everyone was friendly and perfessional. Everyone!!!! Thanks for a wonderful experience!
