The Westgate Hotel


I’ve been to the area many times over the years; however I cannot believe I only recently discovered this diamond of a property. Welcome to The Westgate Hotel, a true ultra-posh, luxury hotel located in the Gaslamp section of San Diego. 

The Westgate Hotel – Downtown San Diego’s finest luxury hotel

If the storybook character, Eloise, was to visit San Diego, there is no doubt she would be right at home at The Westgate Hotel. In the truest form of luxe accommodations, this elegant retreat will remind you of an iconic Manhattan hotel located in Central Park, only with views of the San Diego skyline and Pacific sunsets. From the chandeliers in the grand entrance to the smallest details of our Executive Suite, there is something wonderful around every corner. We could not wait to check-in and explore!

It’s no wonder why, “The Westgate Hotel is the San Diego address for presidents and celebrities who prefer the incomparable ambiance of one of the world’s truly fine hotels.” The list of dignitaries and celebrities who have visited The Westgate Hotel go on, and on, and on.

The Westgate Hotel is part of the Grand America Hotels & Resorts collection. In addition to the AAA Four Diamond-rated Westgate Hotel, the collection features Sun Valley Resort in Sun Valley, Idaho.

Where to stay in San Diego with Kids

Something very important in my opinion to note — unlike other city hotels, guest rooms are quite spacious and roomy. As mentioned, we spent our stay in an Executive Suite which boasted an entrance with closet, formal living room and large bedroom with beautiful marble bath.

Future guests of the should also recognize the décor of the 223 guest rooms have been inspired by the mythical palaces of Europe. So hipsters need not apply. 

JetSet Kid took a particular liking to this hotel. She packed her finest dresses, and remembered her manners. It is always fun to see her purposely try and act mature when staying at fancy dancy hotels. Especially, during our dinner at the award-winning Westgate Room, known for their California contemporary cuisine and artistic cocktails. Make sure to see our full review of the Westgate Room coming up on JetSet Family.

I wish we had a little more time for a swim because The Westgate Hotel recently finished 10,000 square feet of renovations on the rooftop pool and lounge area. It’s a brand new pool since the property never had one before and the water is heated, so it can be enjoyed all year round. 

The JetSet Family is really excited for you to stay here the next time you visit downtown San Diego. Please come back and let us know how much you enjoyed your getaway!

    It is a stunner of a hotel. I’ve stayed in a Westgate in LA but I’ve never been to San Diego. Your daughter is a delightful model to showcase the beauty of the hotel.
