U.S. News Review

The Westgate Hotel in downtown San Diego has all the fixings of a royal mansion: Parquet floors, antique furnishings, Persian carpets, expansive tapestries — the works. Modeled after the Palace of Versailles in France, this 223-room boutique hotel offers guests an experience unlike that offered at the city's more contemporary hotels. But not everyone was impressed: Some travelers say that the old-world elegance just wasn't their style, while others felt the breakfast buffet experience could be improved. Visitors did praise the sizable guest rooms which, like the rest of the hotel, are dressed in period decor but come equipped with modern amenities such as LCD televisions and Internet access. The property also features a large rooftop pool and Jacuzzi, as well as the acclaimed Westgate Room restaurant. Previous diners are quick to praise The Westgate Room's creative seafood dishes, though some say the atmosphere felt a little stuffy.
