"Nice room with ocean view."
The room and staff were excellent. NOT a negative, but worth mentioning that the bath was small and the balconies were shared, but separated by a railing. Beautiful view more than made up for the tight quarters.

"Beautiful House."
This house is absolutely beautiful. We stayed in the Garden Room, and it was beautiful. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was beautiful. They give you no special treatment like some nice B&Bs, so I give it 4 stars for beauty and cleanliness. Pros: -BEAUTIFUL -Comfortable bed -Clean -Free parking in the parking garage across the street -Key card to get in at any time -Ask for the history of the house -Close to Balboa Park Cons: -Shower took a few minutes to warm up (but it did get hot). -Walls a little thin. I could hear conversations in the foyer (although I couldn't understand them clearly) -The piano was out-of-tune. It's just a decoration I guess. (++It's signed by a Steinway) -No free parking for loading/unloading. -Breakfast was disappointing---cheap continental breakfast. Nothing special. -No chocolates, no cheese hour, no fancy shampoo (big bottles of shampoo/conditioner)

"Classy Destination in Downtown San Diego"
Approaching from the street, the hotel is recognizable as a 1970’s era luxury design. But upon entering, I was taken by surprise. The lobby design and décor is obviously inspired by Versailles and it has been lovingly maintained. Look around the hotel. At the lobby level is a small bar (jazz singer Jonathan Karrant on Saturday nights – wow, I thought I was in New York!), beautiful dining room and an outdoor pool on the 3rd floor with views into the city. They set the lobby up for afternoon tea on the weekends. We had a day planned and had to miss it. I’m not into tea, but I kept looking back over my shoulder wishing we could stay. My suggestion, bring some nice clothes and stay in for the tea. They draw a classy bunch. Our room was wonderful. Décor is older hotel luxury style. But when that style is so well maintained it’s just great. With all the hip and hard edge designs in vogue now, I had forgotten how nice the older luxury style can be. And the Westgate is in its prime. It’s a short 10 minute walk from the Amtrak station. Stretch your legs and roll on over. I can’t wait to go back!!

"That's a lot of stars but..."
I was really expecting some over the top accommodations based on reviews, but I can say while everything is nice, it is living off of its location vs quality of amenities and rooms. Nice is about the best word I can use to describe it. However, when you charge what they do, you don't get away with nice. It wasn't a memorable stay and this was disappointing based on what I had read/heard. The Hilton next door seemed just as nice and more reasonable.

"Close but quiet."
We loved this small hotel. The staff is friendly, the room we great. You can walk across the street to the beach. It's close enough to walk to all the main restaurants and shopping but far enough south to be a little more quiet and quaint. Ther parking charge is lower than most and room amenities were good. I plan to go back.

Great hotel if you get the right room. The surf pads look right over the ocean and Boardwalk. If you are into people watching its perfect. It's a bit noisy because of all the action going on right beneath you but we loved it. Not much on amenities such as a pool or spa but it didn't bother us. Super close to excellent restaurants and bars... We stayed at the Coronado bay resort after here and it was a totally different feel. Large resort, big pools, etc but it was land locked and you felt like you couldn't leave. Tower 23 was the best!!!

"Good experience!"
Decent hotel in a great area. Got there a little early since I received an email saying that I might be able to check in around 12, but during the drive there got an email saying that wasn't possible. However, was able to check in around 2 after sitting waiting at the hotel for a hour. This hotel has valet parking for a fee per night, but if you have a lifted truck (which I do) that is over 6'5, you might want to think twice. I had to park across the street for $34 a night. I wish the website would tell you this before you book so you are aware.. Room was alright, small as expected. Wifi was slow, don't use. And a trash can wasn't emptied. Little stuff. Overall, the staff was friendly and the location was great.

"Outstanding suite worth every penny!"
1.) phenomenal location in downtown SD. Adjacent to everything! Tons of bars, restaurants, etc within close proximity from the moment you step outside. However, I think if we were on a lower floor, we might have been disturbed by the sounds of the San Diego nightlife. We were high enough that we didn't. 2.) Stayed in the imperial jacuzzi suite and were totally wowed by it. Usually hotel photos play up the space and appearance of how a room looks. But this time the opposite was true. We were very pleased with how gorgeous penthouse-G was decorated and the amount of space we had. 3.) staff was really nice and even let us check in super early--at 9am!!! 4.) such an adorable and chic/trendy boutique hotel without the gross "side effects" you usually get with boutique hotels (ie hot water that chooses when it wants to work, cockroaches, etc) 5.) the only downsides were the lack of parking (beware the $40 valet charge!) but that was my bad for not foreseeing that coming. I mean, it's downtown sd...of course there's no parking structures or garages for each and every business. The only self Parking was like 4 blocks away for $15. At least the $40 valet had unltd in and out privileges. Then only other slight downside was the dust in our suite. Overall it was very clean but the sheer amount of decor and furnishing would make it impossible to maintain perfectly dustless. With 2 story vaulted ceilings, pretty much everything over the height of 6 ft was covered in dust.

"Exquisite Renovation"
This is a great little hotel, well appointed, clean, and not your usual (yawn!) hotel. Most helpful staff, and great to have an in-house restaurant. Pool a nice touch. This is the kind of place one would happily take his wife. Well done, Pearl!!
