This review is of the restaurant. We did not stay here so I cannot speak to the rooms, etc. We had Easter brunch at the Fountainbleau on the 2nd floor. It was very nice, fancy atmosphere, and tons of food/ desserts. Loved the homemade, fresh out of the oven donuts. The price was hefty ($90/adult and $40/child) and we did...

They have a nice hotel and managed a very busy volleyball tournament, airshow and something else over the weekend we stayed. I thought the value was there and would stay again. The casino is small but they have a nice, big sports book and I enjoyed relaxing and watching Sergio win The Masters!

Dear Cdubb1018, I believe you have the wrong Hotel. We are the Westgate Hotel in San Diego, CA which is a different company from the one you are referring to in Las Vegas. Nice to hear you had a good time! Sincerely, Sarah Gunter Director of Operations

The Westgate is a beautiful hotel, but the service there is exceptional! My kids and I stayed there for their spring break and they went out of their way to make sure that we had everything we needed at all times. Even if there was something that wasn't on the menu that the boys wanted, the staff went out of...

We went to San Diego for spring break last week (3/31/17 to 4/8/17). We chose to stay at the Westgate Hotel due to it's central location. We were not disappointed. It's a beautiful, elegant hotel...very quiet spot. The rooftop pool had a view and it, too, was quiet and dignified. Several exercise equipment pieces were also available poolside along with...

The room was spacious and pleasant. The only minor issues were that the room adjacent to our room was enclosed in a small foyer with ours. We constantly heard the shared door opening and closing. Also the room services menu and some of the other materials in the hotel binder were out of date.

We stayed here for 3 nights after a cruise. This could be a really great hotel but it appears the hotel have let things slip. They appear to have a part time concierge only available a certain times of the day. The reception were unaware of some basic information about San Diego. For example were to pick up the trolley....

I stayed last Friday night March 31st 2017 and it was my first time staying at the Hotel. I was amazed when I walked in the lobby and found a grand "old hotel" lobby on the order of the Palace of Versailles in France. The hotel was built in 1970 but made to look and feel grand. I can't say...
