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.

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.

Service Oriented

The Westin was clean and staff extremely friendly and helpful. Rates fluctuate greatly depending on when you call and who you talk to. 1st trip couldn't stay there as the rate was $260 a night with no State rate. Locked in rate for next two trips at $159th [...]. A few days later Westins advertised rate was $139 and then later as low as $111. Same story with parking. Different people were charged as low as $19 and as high as $28. One time I had a refrigerator next time I didn/t.

good service

Very staff friendly. They bend over backwards to be of service. Was there for a conference. The food was often stale and subpar. Rooms very average.

21st B-day Celebration

I came to celebrate my 21st birthday. I was greeted with friendly smiles and happy birthdays as soon as the staff found out. Room was great and comfortable. Front desk was extremely helpful with information of where I should go to celebrate. Easy walking distance from Hotel to Gas lamp (specifically 5th street). And I do not regret saying, just as easy to walk back while drunk. Easy check out...Thank you very much

Great Stay

hotel was beautiful, although i feel that when you spend almost 200.00 a night for a hotel you should not be charge an extra 24.00 dollars for parking.

"Unbeatable location for the price"

I attended the IAP2 Annual Conference. The Westin San Diego was well appointed, very clean, with friendly and helpful staff, and in a great location. It was a very good value for the price. My only complaint was the noise I heard coming from outside the hotel, which was late evening street, rail and air traffic, as well as a loud rock concert coming from the W Hotel down the street on Friday, Sept. 18, 2009. Apparently, there was a beer festival there, which might have been fun to attend if I hadn't needed to get up early the next day for training. Unfortunately I was unable to go to sleep early because of the noise.

Nice hotel, maybe best for business

My husband and I went to SD for a vacation this past August, 2009. We stayed at the Westin for 3 nights. The hotel itself was very nice ~ clean, friendly staff, decent pool for a quick dip but not for extensive sun bathing. However, I felt that this hotel might be better suited for business travel. It was about a 15 min walk to Gaslamp district, Petco Park, or waterfront restaurants (short/cheap cab ride though). I felt that the hotels in that area were more amenable to vacationing/sight seeing. So overall, a nice hotel, but the location would hold me back from staying there again for leisure.

Nightlife tip: Not Applicable

If you are downtown I highly recommend grabbing a drink at the Altitude Sky Bar at the Gaslamp Marriot. Amazing rooftop bar with views into Petco Park, city skyline, and cliffs of Coronado. Great drinks, music, and firepits/couches.

Comfortable and a great location

We were in San Diego for Comic-con. The hotel is right on the Comic-con "blue" tram line. It is also a very short walk to the convention center and restaurants. And it is just over a block away from the train station. With the location, it wouldn't need to have great facilities -- but it does. The hotel restaurant serves great food and the rooms are very clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly. As a nice plus, they have fruit flavored waters available in the lobby. Very refreshing.
