Located on the edge of San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter, The Westgate Hotel is a practically untouched 1970s interpretation of the legendary Palace of Versailles. Its distinctively European ambiance is conjured by French antiques, Flemish and French tapestries, Baccarat crystal chandeliers, exquisite French cuisine, and heartfelt hospitality.
As part of the Grand America Hotels and Resorts family, The Westgate needed a website that integrated well with the family of properties, while also retaining their signature brand of hospitality. Our approach was based on three areas of focus: 1. Develop a strategic brand platform that accurately positions the Westgate in the crowded San Diego market, 2. Refresh their brand image with photography that showcases their enchanting environment, 3. Create a website that feels standardized with other properties but customized to The Westgate’s unique experience.
