Iconic stay brings luxury to downtown

The spectacular crystalline design of The Westin San Diego is a signature landmark in the city's skyline. A 100-foot atrium lobby welcomes guests to the iconic property. The hotel is within walking distance to all of San Diego's most popular attractions. On site, guests enjoy an outdoor heated pool, a signature Westin Workout Gym and more. Coast restaurant serves contemporary cuisine in a casual and relaxed setting.

Highlights
  • Terrific location in the heart of downtown
  • Swim and relax in the heated outdoor pool
  • An iconic building in the city skyline
Rooms

The Westin San Diego offers 436 rooms, including more than 30 suites with mind-bending views of the city and San Diego Bay. Each room comes standard with a flat-screen TV, the signature Westin Heavenly Bed, the signature Westin Heavenly Bath, make-up mirrors and in-room safes. Wi-Fi and high-speed Internet access are available (fees apply). Pets are welcome (fees apply).

Features

The Westin San Diego received AAA's four diamond award, but the property is best-known for its silhouette--the crystalline profile is one of the most recognizable buildings in the city's skyline.

All guests of the hotel receive complimentary access to the 24-hour Westin Workout Gym. The heated outdoor pool sits on a rooftop deck named Harbor Deck. Fittingly, Harbor Deck offers sweeping views of San Diego Bay. The property offers in-room spa treatments (fees apply) and provides 24-hour laundry service (fees apply).

The menu at the on-site restaurant, Coast, is casual and contemporary, much like the eatery's decor. A coffee shop (The Aroma Caf�) and bar (The Bar) are also open to guests at certain times of day.

Westin doing just fine

The hotel experience was great overall - the staff were courteous and helpful, and the facility looks good - rooms were attractive and well turned-out. Parking was a rip-off - $40.00/night, and only valet parking available. The restaurant was pretty much deserted, as the surrounding neighborhood is more CBD; not a lot of walk-in traffic. I did not eat there, so can't comment on the food.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

Don't get a rental car if you want to get around downtown San Diego - parking is horribly expensive, and the shuttles and cabs are cheap in comparison - lots of great things are within an easy walk of the hotel.

Good price, but...

Have to walk by courthouse and bail bond shops to get to restaurant and Horton Plaza. Relatively easy walk to Harbor Drive and waterfront area.

great until checkout!

The stay was great until checkout day. I had been charged two days for valet even though I did not have a car. It was removed at checkout. Once I got to the airport, I realized I had left an mp3 player in the room. I called back to the hotel to try and find out if someone could check the room. I never spoke with a person, just an answering machine. I left all my contact information with security and to this date (almost a week later), I have not heard back from anyone. What kind of b.s. is that? I was told the Westin is a 4 star hotel. I guess I need to stay at a 5 star hotel to get real attention to detail.

Westin San Diego

Great hotel in downtown San Diego - close to the bay, Gaslamp District, Petco Field, restaurants, etc. We stay here almost everytime we are visiting. The hotel staff are friendly. The hotel is always clean and exudes a relaxing atmosphere, but with luxury. As a major plus, they are dog friendly and don't charge outrageous pet fees (this earns them the fifth star in my book).

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a wonderful French cafe, Fabrison's Sweet Cafe and Boutique(sign just says Sweet Cafe), that serves crepes and croissants only a short walk from the hotel. It's on India Street between Ash and Beech, technically in Little Italy. They serve delicious breakfast crepes, display the work of a local artist, and have great people working there. They have outside tables that are enjoyable on a nice day or great if you have a dog with you. If your in town for a while they even offer free French lessons. Though we've been to SD at least a dozen times, we just found this place and it is truly worth a visit! Good prices too.

I recommend this hotel

It was a typical Westin stay. They do a very good job. They forgot my newspaper but gave me one in the restaurant.
