    What's not to love about the Westgate? A luxury hotel in downtown San Diego located within walking distance of tons of restaurants, shopping, and much more. But the best part is their elegant teas and if you are in town at the right time, you can even participate in their Ladies Literary Teas, always featuring a fabulous author. Enjoy decadent tea sandwiches, scones, seasonal fruit and berries, desserts and lovely harp music and why not add the champagne as well!

    The Westgate is a one-of-a- kind hotel, completed in 1970. It is filled with priceless antiques and appointments one would find in an elegant home. Designed as a re-creation of an anteroom in the Palace of Versailles, the Grand Lobby is noted for its magnificent antiques, Baccarat crystal chandeliers, Flemish and French tapestries and Persian carpets. Offering the ease and pleasures of the world’s finest metropolitan hotels, and the best of Southern California! Minutes from the airport or the San Diego Convention Center, steps from the trolley/train station and readily accessible by freeway. Within walking distance is the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Opera and the Symphony, Horton Plaza shops and Gaslamp Quarter energy. Return to the quiet of your private room and relax in luxury, then consider a visit to Le Spa or the Fitness Center, a glass of wine in the intimate Plaza Bar, or an elegant dining experience graciously served in The Westgate Room. Check out their new 15,000sq. foot Roof Deck opening in late Spring 2013. The Olympic-sized swimming pool, Jacuzzi and fire pit-dotted lounge space, plus fitness and training stations with skyline views is a must see if you are among San Diego's rooftop pool scene lovers.

    Nice staff. Clean rooms. Not too modern but still very accommodating for basic needs.
