Westgate was our dream wedding venue

Vanessa was so easy to work with. She made everything so easy to understand worked with us to make sure we had everything we wanted for our wedding day! I could not recommend the westgate enough for your wedding venue! From the hotel, staff, food, decor and royal style it just was amazing! You truly feel like you were transported to Versailles in France! We enjoyed working with the Westgate hotel and can’t wait to come back to celebrate our anniversary next year! Love love love!!! The Sweeneys! :)

Exceptional & Elegant Wedding Venue - A True Hidden Gem

WOW! How do I even begin this review? The Westgate Hotel and its staff are truly exceptional. I honestly believe it is a hidden gem in San Diego and far superior to so many other venues. I felt lucky to have found it and would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who is getting married and loves the French antique style. You feel like you have been transported to France and their attention to detail regarding their décor is breathtaking.
My husband and I were due to be married April 2020 and we ended up needing to cancel due to COVID. Vanessa Saenz, who was our catering sales manager, was lovely and she is HANDS DOWN the best. We had to reschedule 4 times and finally landed on April 2022. Throughout all this rescheduling, Vanessa and The Westgate remained so helpful and understanding. Their level of professionalism is second to none. I also changed my mind frequently for our ceremony location (indoor vs outdoor) and she remained so patient. From start to finish, Vanessa, was exceptional. She worked with us diligently on our new date, tastings, menu choices, special requests, etc. She is incredibly detail oriented, professional, and diligent. I always felt like Vanessa had our back and would advocate for us.
Our wedding itself was quite complicated as we had a more involved Persian ceremony which required many hours for set up (more than traditional ceremonies). Vanessa worked with my planner to ensure that we would have the time to do a thorough set up. The result was breathtaking and, as the bride, I could not have been happier with the outcome. The reception was also stunning, and I know that Vanessa and her staff's handwork certainly helped us achieve our vision. Our wedding also happened to be the same weekend as Easter. The hotel did such an excellent job with out wedding that I didn’t even remember we happened to have our wedding on one of their busiest weekends. The entire evening was seamless.
A note on dinner and cocktail hour as well – EVERY SINGLE guest I personally spoke with absolutely raved about how delicious the hotel’s dinner and tray passed hors d'oeuvres were. Their Executive Chef, Fabrice Hardel, and his staff, did a FANTASTIC job for our wedding. I recall being in love with their dining when we were there for our tasting. Often, hotel venues fall short on catering, this certainly was not the case for the Westgate.
All our guests also had wonderful things to say about the hotel and its staff. The hotel has beautiful rooms, thoughtful staff members, charm, and world class hospitality. I worked closely with Ashley and Jesus as well for our room block and they were always warm, friendly, attentive, and helpful. A special thank you to them as well!
Last, we also had our rehearsal lunch at The Westgate which was an excellent choice. We booked one of their beautiful private rooms and their lunch menu was spectacular. We very much enjoyed the convenience of having lunch at the hotel and I would recommend this as well.
Vanessa and the staff at The Westgate took an event that usually is quite stressful and made it fun and enjoyable for my husband and our families. I will forever be grateful to them and have the fondest memories of our wedding there. If you have not seen this venue do yourself a favor and set up a tour. You will not be disappointed!

We have stayed at the Westgate on several trips and it's great. We have had the nicest people help us and they are very accommodating. While we were staying there we chatted with parents of the groom who were getting married that weekend and they were thrilled with the experience. Nice place, will return
