Travel tips: Money no object, bargain hunting

If money is no object, The Examiner recommends a weekend in San Diego to visit the Inez Grant Parker Memorial Rose Garden in Balboa Park.

Where: Westgate Hotel

How much: $435 per night

As a member of the “Leading Hotels of the World,” The Westgate is as classic and elegant as roses — public spaces are filled with 18th-century antiques, Baccarat crystal chandeliers, French tapestries and Persian carpets. Located in the heart of downtown San Diego — one block from the Gaslamp Quarter — the hotel offers easy access to Balboa Park. Ocean-view rooms start at $435 per night, but city view rooms start as low as $265 per night. Call the hotel directly for the governor’s or the presidential suite. For more information, call (800) 522-1564 or visit www.westgatehotel.com.
