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´┐Ż) and bar (The Bar) are also open to guests at certain times of day.

Great Stay!

Had a great time staying at this hotel. If you stay, you want to get a room view of the hotel. The hotel is a couple of walks from Gaslamp but not a long walk at all. I would definitely stay here again.

Almost perfect

It was all great other than when I booked it through a 3rd party agency, it showed parking included and it was an additional $40 a night. If you look across the street where the valet parks the car it was the same garage charging $20 a night!

Great location...comfortable rooms

This hotel is located in the heart of downtown. Minutes from the pier and minutes away from Gaslamp which is a great area for shops, great food and bars! Only thing that was a downfall was that they only had valet parking, which is $40 a day or you had to find alternative parking which was still $20+ a day. Rooms are very comfortable and clean! Rooftop pool and hot tub was a nice touch.

Classy place, close enough to excitement

We stayed here to experience the nightlife in the Gaslamp District of San Diego. The price was ideal before the "taxes and fees" (why not include them in the search results). The room was close enough to walk to and from Gaslamp multiple times throughout the day and night. Room was quiet, comfortable, and clean. I would stay here again unless I found something closer at a better price.

Great hotel within walking distance to most SD attractions

We enjoyed our stay here. Unfortunately, there was construction going on in the lobby that was really loud. Although we didn't hear it from our room, we did have to walk by it to get on and off the elevators. The area is a bit sketchy but in the day time you have plenty of nearby places you can walk safely to and from, including the piers, Gaslamp, and Little Italy. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and we look forward to staying here next time we are in San Diego.

Excellent hotel!!

Great. Loved the glass elevators and giant window with a harbor view in the room. Extremely comfortable beds. Staff was helpful and curteous. Only problem was internet access. Even after paying for "premium" it was super slow. My only complaint.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

24 hour parking lot for $16 only about 10 min walk. Beware valet at hotel is $36 per day. A little steep for area.

Call ahead re: construction

Was unaware that they were doing construction work in the lobby... jackhammers were pounding away and it definitely did not make for the most romantic ambience for my husband and I. My advice is to call ahead and make sure they're done with that hot mess. Aside from that, everything else was good. Room was clean and the bed was very comfortable.

Unfortunate Experience

The hotel was undergoing major renovations and did not inform us. The lobby and facade were constantly being hammered and drilled. They did comp us for parking and breakfast to ease the painful noise.

Noisy hotel at the moment!

The room was nice, view good and staff very courteous. However, the lobby was undergoing major renovations. There was a lot of jack hammering later in the afternoon (which the staff advised us of). However, when booking a room one should be notified of this.
