    Nice service but expensive

    Good service at front desk by Michelle and Emily and at restaurant by Nate and his team. They were generous with advice and resort fee tickets. But if you don't like noise, book rooms facing the shopping mall not the street entrance. Windows are single pane so you hear all the motorcycles and trucks going downtown. Breakfast is pretty good with variety of omelettes, pancakes etc but you need the breakfast coupons. Otherwise $25-30 per person. Parking fee at $55 high so use Spot Hero; resort fee $25 high but get 2 drinks from it. Good Thai restaurant nearby if arrive late and not too many homeless near hotel as compared to other parts downtown.

    Second times the best.

    This is my second visit to this Westin location and it's totally worth it. Checking in is a breeze everyone is so nice. Don't let the fee of local tax 19.99 stress you out. The fee, it's great because you receive free internet, two alcoholic beverages per day from the bar or coffee and tea from Starbucks, so we get our money back. The house keeping staff Marco Antonio is so awesome. I had an odd requested a fan and Marco found one and delivered it to my room hooray. Thank you. I will sleep well. The hotel is super clean and has an extremely clean gym, which I used and it was awesome. The hotel lobby has a beautiful bar, restaurant and Starbucks. But if you do not want that it's ok because the Location is in the middle of every where you want to go. I strongly recommend this hotel.

    San Diego Get Away

    I arrived late and was told I was the last to check in. Paul Dunlop was at the front desk. He was polite, efficient and accommodating. I did not prefer the 1st room given. I called down to see if anything else was available. Lucky for me, there was. I truly appreciate good service. Thank you!

    Kind staff welcoming us for a stay right our wedding. Clean, comfy, pampered!

    The lobby and room was very clean and comfortable. Plenty of fluffy pillows for a good nights sleep. We stayed here right after our wedding and we were pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome! Denise checked us in and she was super welcoming, friendly and treated us to a nice bottle of champagne and late check out. Wonderful staff, convenient location to the pier, small bar and coffee shop in the lobby! There’s a small daily destination fee but you can grab a complimentary drink in the nice bar in the lobby and enjoy some nearby activities easily that’s included in this fee. It felt like a luxurious stay near the water. Gaslamp quarter itself though is partly unclean and the streets don’t smell so pleasant. However if you don’t mind that or don’t plan to walk around then it’s all good. There are a ton of restaurants nearby as well. Thanks for making it such a nice stay Denise! Our bartender was superb as well but I didn’t catch her name!
