Historical Traveller Reviews of Westin San Diego Hotel
Modern, good positionfrom possumpal
It was a choice between the Sofia or the Westin but the Sofia could only offer us a Queen size bed not a King.
The Westin is very modern and well situated, close to Gaslamp, the trolley and the cruise terminal.
The only complaint we had were not enough lamps in the room. None on the desk and only one lamp (and bedside table !!!) by the King size bed. My husband stays in Westin hotels a lot (about 5 months a year) and though we found the room very large, clean heaps of towels, toiletries etc this was an annoyance. Also there was a robobar sitting in front of the full length mirror as an afterthought. A normal mini bar is much preferred as you can use the fridge if necessary plus the room had a cabinet built in for one.
The Westin San Diego while a nice place to stay is really just another piece of a large hotel chain.
The perfect stay, Westin San Diegofrom mmvend2002
We found every staff member to be courteous and helpful, especially the concierge who was always willing to direct us to the best restaurants and shops..
The hotel apparently just underwent a complete renovation earlier this year, so everything was brand new, which was great.
This hotel was really tremendous. I would highly recommend it to anyone travelling to San Diego on business or for pleasure.
Good Base for Exploring San Diegofrom longislandny07
Room was clean but smelled slightly like cleaning products the first day but okay after that.
We had a bay view room but couldn't see the bay b/c windows were very filthy. Tall buildings blocked most of the view anyway.
Breakfast at the hotel restaurant was below average.
Good location. Easy walk to Seaport Village. Short walk to trolley station. Very convenient for getting directly into Qualcomm Stadium. Zoo/Park is a long walk. I would recommend a taxi for the zoo/park (approx. $10.00 each way) or taking the trolley to City College and walking 15 mins. to the tram in the park.

Heavenly Stay!from PedroNeves
We loved all the special attention !!from LWms
The flavored water in the lobby was also so wonderful. Every time we walked in or out of the hotel, we would stop for a glass of water. Every flavor; strawberry, lemon, orange, honeydew and cantelope, was delicious. Fresh fruit cut up, in glass dispensers, filled often with water and ice, for a subtle, yet flavorful treat.
The restaurant was fabulous, the breakfast buffet was sumptuous ! Again, staffed with wonderful, friendly, helpful people. A chef was there to personally make your waffles or omelets to your order, while you watched !! Oh, the strawberries and cream waffle was delicious, just like everything else, which was just about everything you could imagine, in a breakfast buffet.
I was OK with the parking, since there was no other alternative, except to leave the car parked on the street, which I would not do. The parking staff were quick and extremely courteous. They even flagged down a taxi for us when we needed one, they even offered to drive us to our destination, so that we wouldn't have to drive ourselves !!
We would gladly stay there again and again and refer friends and family (and everyone else!) to the Westin, whenever staying in San Diego !!
The Westin saved our vacation!from CanadaJaybee
I won't bore you with the details of all the things I loved about the Westin. They saved our vacation after a very disappointing start at the Lafayette, and I would not hesitate to go back.
Hard to recommendfrom CB90292
1. there were no bay view rooms available
2. there were NO ROOMS available
After standing at the check in for almost a 1/2 hr, we were finally given a room.
When we got to the room, the first thing that we encountered was an overpowering smell of too much cleaning product. Plus the room was the size of a broom closet, with an obstructed path between the beds and the bathroom. Called to say the room was unacceptable and amazingly, another room was available.
Moved to that room, which was much better, but it was obvious that someone had already been in the room as the bedspread was rumpled and the a.c. was shut off. Very strange...
As for the "heavenly beds" - they look nice, but the sheets are of very low quality, and scratchy. As for the "heavenly bath", nice tub, great shower, but the bath products are "no name" and minimal (no bath gel, for example).
Nice flat screen t.v., though difficult to change the channels for some reason.
We were never offered a key to the mini bar.
And lastly - there were two long, black hairs in the tub prior to anyone using it. ..
Decent Hotel, but Lousy Stafffrom BurbankAV
I was asked if I wanted a key to the minibar. I declined, but was given one anyway. Why ask? My coworkers all reported exactly the same thing.
Nice matching furniture in the room, and then a really tacky-looking minibar set into a prominent location that I kept walking into (and had to lift my suitcase over to get past!)
Midway through my stay, housekeeping rearranged the minibar -- changing what was visible in the little front window. Admittedly, Westin-branded whatevers are better looking than Cheez-its, but I felt the need to check my folio to make sure I wasn't being scammed.
Housekeeping will not take away used bottles of shampoo/conditioner/etc. Am I supposed to throw them away?
As I said, all of this is minor, and wouldn't merit such a low review if not for the following:
The first morning I was there, the alarm clock in the room woke me at 6am (really loud Mexican music.) I figured it was my fault -- I hadn't checked the clock. So I switched off the alarm and went about my day. Morning two, the alarm goes off at 6am. Clearly housekeeping set the alarm again. After I complained to the front desk, they said they'd "look into it." When I came back at the end of the day, I had a message letting me know that they'd replaced the alarm clock (!!!) Of course, I checked, and the alarm was set on this one, too. At this point, I was angry and frustrated (housekeeping has an alarm clock fetish?) so I went back to the front desk, and they couldn't figure out how the alarm clock might possibly be resetting itself.... The only resolution they could think of was to take the alarm clock away entirely. Fine, whatever. It's a good thing I carry a small travel alarm clock with me...
Overall, I really can't recommend this hotel. It's okay, but there are so many other choices that won’t make you crazy, that you should just avoid this place.
Top Local Tips for San Diego
Balboa Park is Great Balboa Park is easy to reach by bus. By a $5 all day pass for trolley and bus, you'll enjoy it. The park is clean and free, you can select museums to pay admission if you choose.

WOW! There is SO much to do in this city. You'll want to rent a car, but it's worth it once you see how much there is to do. You won't want to leave. I hear the weather is great all year round.
