The Westgate Hotel has announced the opening of its rooftop pool, lounge and fitness amenities with 360-degree views of San Diego’s downtown skyline. Guests of the iconic hotel now enjoy access to this exclusive rooftop experience where they can swim, celebrate and take in Southern California views.
Designed by Hollander Design Group, the 10,000 square foot rooftop deck creates a new venue for events, leisure and fitness. The opening of the rooftop pool now allows The Westgate Hotel to accommodate large events for up to 340 guests. Views of the urban skyline are set apart by the rooftop’s modern design, highlighted by an expansive landscape wall display created by GreenScaped Buildings. The reimagined space also offers cocktail and dining services, available by the touch of a poolside phone to room service. Additional features include modern lounge furniture and a jacuzzi available exclusively to guests. For fitness enthusiasts, features include a Junior Olympic sized lap pool (heated year-round), a 1/10 Olympic running track and outdoor fitness equipment.
“By day, guests can enjoy San Diego’s sunshine and use the space for fitness, business or leisure,” said Richard Cox, general manager at The Westgate Hotel. “By night, the skyline creates an exceptional backdrop for private parties with service and style that evokes the European spirit we are known for.”
The rooftop amenities are part of The Westgate Hotel’s property enhancements making the guest experience even more palatial. From the hotel’s lavish lobby—designed as a re-creation of one of the anterooms at Versailles—to the guest rooms and rooftop, the hotel continues to be recognized as the iconic jewel of downtown San Diego. Since 1970, the original rooftop has been the site of thousands of memorable events and has been visited by a roster of recognized guests from President Gerald Ford to actress Kate Hudson.
