The Westin Gas Lamp Quarter is San Diego's best downtown hotel. Located next to the Horton Plaza, everything that downtown San Diego has to offer is within walking distance. The hotel is a ten minute cab ride from the airport and once there you will never need a car. The rooms are spacious and well kept and the staff is responsive to your every need. The restaurant and the bar area are convenient and reasonably priced. You can't go wrong with this choice.

Room Tip: Choose a bay side room on the upper floors for maximum views.

Green Features: Green program is solidly in place. Even the soaps are green and shaped like leaves.

We flew into San Diego to celebrate a milestone birthday and we were given excellent treatement and service. Everyone at the Westin was top notch and excelled in all aspects of service. I have to extend a huge thank you to Matt and the front desk team for the birthday card and special gift. The extra special treatment made the birthday celebration one of the best!!

Stayed in a king suites for business. Great working desk nice comfortable chair for reading. Starbucks coffee in the room many fridge. Wish there was a microwave. It is in the gaslamp district so plenty of places and varieties of food. You can Brent new balance workout clothes so you can pack later for five bucks!

This is a very nice hotel in one of the best locations nearThe Gaslamp Quarter in downtown San Diego.

The room was super clean and I had a room with 2 beds. The room had lots of space - a flat screen TV, and desk with multiple plug in station.

The room was super clean and sheets were high quality material, and the beds were super comfortable that allowed for 2 nights of great sleep.

The lobby was nice and large - and there was a restaurant and computers available for flight check-in and other options.
The bathroom was nice - had a modern look and a well lit mirror and a shower with great pressure and with a large square sunflower head with a handheld shower.

Valet parking was available and rather expensive but the best option. It was $40 for 24 hours and allowed us to come and go as we needed, without any extra charges. With self park you would pay every time you entered / exited. Also trying to park downtown can be tricky and any mistake and a ticket would cost you far more.

The great thing about this hotel is you can get to the various great spots of downtown just in a 5 min walk. Next to the Westin is the Westfield Mall. There is also right with in 100 yards of the hotel a Starbucks, Panera, and other numerous shops and restaurants.

Just a couple of blocks is 5th Ave - which if the popping area of downtown with all the restaurant, bars and shops. On a weekend the streets are packed with people all going out and partying.

It is also close to Petco Park and also the San Diego conference center - all about 5 min away.

Check out is easy just a key drop. I called the front desk checked the charges and they got me set and said all I have to do is drop my key in the box.

So if your headed to San Diego and looking for a nice hotel - this is a great option and at more of a reasonable price. I gave it a 5 star for it's hotel class and the location, and the wonderful staff. The staff is wonderful and make sure your stay is a good one.

I love this hotel and I stay everytime I come to sunny San Diego.

I was booked in a room with two double beds (the hotel is sold out) and it was just not going to do so I told the front desk agent she would be my hero if she found me a kind bed room she would be my hero. Her response was "I want to be a hero today," and 2 mintues later I had a king room

BRIANA IS AWESOME!!!

I was here for a conference. I can only take so much of the posturing, high testosterone conference so escaped to the pool to sit and work every day. A lovely space, with comfortable chairs. Westin is trying a new concept to be more green -- I didn't quite realize I would have no housekeeping at all over the four days (you can ask if you need to). Difficult to know how to tip since nothing was done to the room. Bar at this hotel is pricey -- $16 for a martini. The space did work well for our large regional conference. Excellent breakfast buffet. I would certainly stay here again.

Green Features: See above. Appreciate having a recycling bin in the room.
