Overview

Suite view, The Westgate HotelTreatment room Aquavie Spa, The Westgate Hotel

Search no more for a different kind of hotel experience; you’ve found it at The Westgate Hotel. With 223 rooms in a nineteen-floor building, this hotel, located on the edge of the Gaslamp Quarter, caters to guests with high standards and refined tastes. When you enter the lobby, you may forget that you are in downtown San Diego, thinking instead you have been transported to a boutique inn somewhere in France. The common areas are anything but common, with gilded baroque furniture, marble flooring, and a grand piano placed next to a dramatic staircase.

The setting may look formal, but the professional staff are most concerned with your comfort while you are a guest of the hotel. The rooms and suites reflect the same old-world charm found in the lobby, with plush bedding, imported European furniture, elegant carpeting, and floor-to-ceiling windows with a stunning view of the city. Each spacious room has a private marble bathroom and balcony, adding to your sense of peace and relaxation.

Local Tips
The Gaslamp Quarter
The hotel is perfectly located in the heart of Downtown San Diego. Don't miss this opportunity to take a walk and discover one of the city's jewels, The Gaslamp Quarter. Full with nightlife, bars, shopping and culture, this is the perfect option for guests looking for fun.

The hotel offers world-class amenities you can experience during your stay. Fine dining can be had at The Westgate Room, the opulent restaurant on site that features French cuisine with Southern California freshness, offering breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily. Have a drink before your meal or a nightcap before retiring at the Plaza Bar, which features live entertainment and craft cocktails. The hotel is also a popular spot for weekend brunch and high tea in the afternoons, served in the Grand Lobby. Of course, you may prefer to stay in and order room service, available 24 hours a day.

Set aside time for a luxury spa treatment at Aqua Vie Spa or participate in an exercise class offered in the fitness center, where you can find over 200 weight machines and high-tech cardio equipment. Visit the rooftop heated pool and hot tub, run a few laps around the outdoor track, or lounge in the sun with downtown San Diego in the background.

Don’t forget that The Westgate Hotel can also accommodate business meetings, weddings, and special events. The catering staff can assist you with arrangements, and you have over 12 meeting rooms and the Versailles Ballroom at your disposal. Treat yourself to a stay here, and you can feel like you’ve had a European vacation without the long overseas flight.
