SAN DIEGO: $100 Macy’s Gift Card at Westin Gaslamp

Share Button


There’s nothing like a big fat gift card offer to get you to book a stay at a hotel. And $100 is plenty of incentive. Earlier this year we stayed at the Westin San Diego Gaslamp as part of a Starwood promotion and enjoyed some of the benefits of being downtown. But what I missed was the shopping! Now that we’re heading into Fall, and lets face it, is just the shopping ramp up for the holidays, the Westin Gaslamp is wooing me back. They have several deals on their “Offers” page, but I like this one.

DEAL: Get a free $100 Macy’s Gift Card for each night’s stay at the Westin Gaslamp. Rates start at $229 per night with promo code “LWX”. The offer is good for stays through December 31, 2013.

TESTED: For the weekend of December 13-15 the lowest rate on the Westin website was $179 for a Traditional Room. But for the same dates and room, the Macy’s Gift Card package was $249 a night. Then I tried to find a cheaper date to stay. I did find a nightly rate of $229 per night with this “LWX” package November 29-December 1, 2013, but the lowest standard rate was $149. So, there’s a little value in there, but there a bunch of packages to choose from.  Have a look at their other packages to see if you’d rather have their “See the San Diego Sights” package that starts at $189 and includes trolley tickets and valet parking ($36) or “California Resident Rates” that take 20% off their best available rates.

Whether your get the Macy’s Gift Card or not, the Westin is in the best location for shopping at Westfield Horton Plaza. Here’s a directory of all the shops you have to choose from.

Have fun and let us know if you score a great package from the San Diego Westin Gaslamp.

  1. The rate on the Westin hotel site is $179/night but keep in mind this is before they add the “taxes/fees”. The actual cost per night is: $201.54/night.

    The rates posted at $229/night are actually: $257.83/night

    I checked it for the dates you mentioned.

    The best option to find the lowest rates at the Westin (or any other hotel) is rarely the hotel site. I went to the “travel search engine” at I entered the same dates (12/13-15) and they posted a total cost of $170/night! You save $31/night.

    Here is the rate:
