    The Westgate Hotel
    San Diego, CA

    #1 in Best Hotels in Civic Core, San Diego
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1087 reviewsTripAdvisor (1087)

    The Westgate Hotel in downtown San Diego has all the fixings of a royal mansion: antique furnishings, Persian carpets, gold fixtures — 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. Many guests found the Old World interiors of the hotel to be simply beautiful but don't let the decor fool you, the place comes outfitted with necessary modern amenities. All accommodations at the Westgate Hotel feature 49-inch LCD televisions, internet access and step-out balconies. The property also features a large rooftop pool, as well as the acclaimed Westgate Room restaurant. Previous diners are quick to praise the fine Westgate Room's dishes, though some say the atmosphere felt a little stuffy (not to mention expensive).

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1440 reviewsTripAdvisor (1440)
    Like most Kimpton brand properties, the Hotel Palomar San Diego offers guests a stylish retreat in a convenient location. Situated in downtown San Diego, the Hotel Palomar is described by recent visitors as classy and cool. Accommodations here feature Italian Frette linens and a muted yet elegant color palette. Rooms also include high-speed internet access (which IHG Rewards Club members can use for free), ETRO bath products and plasma TVs. When they're not out enjoying the bustling nightlife in the Gaslamp Quarter, Hotel Palomar visitors can take advantage of the hotel's on-site spa or relax by the outdoor pool. And though numerous eateries sit within walking distance of the hotel, previous guests strongly recommend savoring the tacos and margaritas at in-house Mexican spot Curadero.
