In February 2014, The Westin San Diego completed a $15 million dollar transformation, introducing the brand’s new modern design. The hotel now has a distinctly upscale, contemporary feel, inspired by soothing elements of nature. With a complete revitalization of guestrooms, restaurant, lobby, public areas, meeting space, two new Legal War Rooms, Tangent and a new WestinWORKOUT® Fitness Studio, the newly refurbished urban retreat will transform every aspect of a stay into a revitalizing experience.
The Westin San Diego’s invigorating updated lobby, will greet you with the Vertical Garden, a unique focal element designed not only to improve indoor air quality but create a natural environment. The brand’s in-house design team, was inspired by research conducted by NASA scientists who discovered that growing plants indoors relieves stress while also helping to clean the air.
From the moment you arrive at The Westin San Diego, you’ll experience the newly designed lobby, re-concerting the current space with new furniture and space to create the ultimate social hub for you to enjoy during your stay. Tastefully decorated in soothing neutral tones with energizing textures such as natural wood and stone, the lobby of The Westin San Diego is both elegant and inviting. Several signature components include the new, vertical garden, which not only adds organic beauty but also improves indoor air quality. Guests can relax in thoughtfully designed casual spaces that feature comfortable seating and stylish accents. This new lobby experience will provide you with a serene environment during your arrival or departure. Check-in at new contemporary pods will be more personal than ever.
The Westin San Diego’s newly transformed 436 guestrooms and suites feature the new Westin design with all new blue and white carpet, bright seating arrangements, new wall art and drapes, and 50” flat screen televisions. The world-renowned Westin Heavenly® Bed will provide a restful night’s sleep with an oasis of lush sheets, down cushioning and a patented pillow-top mattress, which cradles and contours to the body for truly restorative sleep. Inspiring elements will be added to every guestroom bathroom including Westin’s Heavenly Bath® experience featuring White Tea Aloe bath amenities, a revitalizing rain shower, new wall treatments, sink and counter, and a large mirror which is surrounded by a soft halo of light. You’ll also enjoy the Westin brand’s signature SuperFoodsRX® in-room menu, which includes nutrient-rich and delicious options to tempt every palate.

Creating a more open and interactive dining and drinking experience with community tables for small groups, The Westin San Diego’s lobby bar pulls through elements of nature with dark wood finishes and stone colored seating arrangements with soft blue, gray, and red accents throughout.
