Great San Diego hotel
Loved the location - within walking distance of everywhere we wanted to go. Lovely old hotel.

High Tea looks fun too!!!
I was a little skeptical when I first walked into the building, because Fairmont (old world) is not really my style, however I was pleasantly surprised from that point on.... Our rooms were beautiful and clean. The service and staff were outstanding, and the rooftop pool is to die for!!! If you go in the summer, you will be absolutely amazed with the outdoor space. And like I said, the customer service felt like you were staying at the Fairmont!! Like I said, my first impression was a little skeptical, and it got better, and better, and better as the days went by. I would absolutely stay there again and again!!

A little disappointing
This was an anniversary stay. The location is superb and the ambiance of the hotel is nice. There were many glitches, however. First we were sent to a room (without escort of a bell boy) that turned out to be occupied already. On second try we got a room that was unoccupied and pleasant. The bathroom is old fashioned with just one sink, but OK. It was annoying that the shower door can not prevent the bathroom floor from becoming soaked. On one morning the provided coffee materials contained only decaf. That same morning the hotel restaurant had a broken espresso machine, and could not offer one of the listed smoothies on the menu. Additionally, there was no free secured wi-fi connection. The positive was a very friendly staff.

Great Downtown SD Hotel
I typically stay at the Grant hotel when I need to stay in downtown SD. I was forced to do Westgate because Price’s at the Grant were 3-4x what they normally are. I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed the Westgate.
