The Westgate Hotel, San Diego

On an upcoming trip to San Diego we plan to visit some of its famous attractions but also want to party and be part of the scene. Any recommendations for a place to stay?

A block from the historic Gaslamp Quarter you’ll find traditional European elegance with a modern, European-style service at The Westgate Hotel. Traditional does not have to mean dated when you are cared for by The Westgate’s young, energetic and helpful staff. You’ll settle into a spacious room furnished with imported European furniture or prepare for your night in the Gaslamp Quarter in bathrooms featuring Italian marble, luxurious towels and quality amenities. As the night closes, return to your room and slip into the plush bathrobes and slippers until you nestle into the welcoming embrace of down pillows and comforter.

To make your stay perfect, request one of the many guest rooms offering San Diego’s signature view, the majestic Coronado Bridge,spectacular by day or night.

San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter boasts a dizzying array of restaurants, pubs, nightclubs as well as galleries and shops. Young professionals working in the area as well as those coming in for the evening create a vibrant scene. A short walk from the hotel you will find Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres’ which opened this spring to rave reviews.

The Westgate has positioned itself as a community center by hosting and integrating community celebrations with their own special events throughout the year. Summerfest 2004 graces San Diego’s social calendar with such eclectic offerings as “Passport to Mediterranean Cuisine” in August and “Italian Opera Night with Luigi & Friends” in October. Details on these and other celebrations of food, wines and community may be found on the hotel’s Events & Promotions page of their web site. Cuisine and fine wines from Paris, Russia, New York, France, Napa Valley and San Diego at The Westgate as part of the the Sixth Annual San Diego World of Food & Wine held over three weeks in November. These are just a few of the events which make San Diego one of the most desireable cities in the United States to live or visit.
