The Westin Carlsbad Resort & Spa

The Westin Carlsbad Resort & Spa, a Marriot Collection Hotel, brings its coastal vibes, luxury vacation style and premier restaurant destination to all visitors. The luxury resort and spa is housed a short walk away from Legoland and is close to everything needed to get the most out of San Diego.  

The first thing you will notice when you enter the Westin Carlsbad is all of the elegant features that were purposely placed into its design. You are greeted with an oversized, sparkling chandelier overhead, accessorizing a modern, open layout in the lobby. An outdoor lounge area with fire pits can be found just off the lobby, with a sitting space that is quiet, cozy and perfect for enjoying a morning coffee. The neutral color palette creates a relaxed atmosphere, while the overgrown plants taking over the lobby’s walls bring a refreshing pop of color. 


The theme carries into the hotel’s guest rooms, with more than 208 rooms and suites to choose from. Each premium room comes complete with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean from a private balcony, plush linens, luxury toiletries and soft, oversized robes. Some suites feature full kitchens, a living space and a separate shower and bath bar. If you’re traveling with your furry companions like us, Westin Carlsbad has you covered. The hotel provides giant, pillowlike beds to keep your four-legged friends as relaxed and comfortable as you. 


Westin Carlsbad provides amenities for all vacation styles and is in close proximity to popular attractions like Legoland (just a short walk away) and is only a five-minute drive to the white, sandy beaches at Carlsbad Beach. If you prefer to keep your vacation on-site, the hotel offers two resort-style pools, complete with lounge areas and cabanas, a rejuvenating spa and a 24-hour gym with state-of-the-art equipment (including our favorite: a Peloton bike). Guests will be thrilled to know they also have access to the resort’s sister site, the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa (located at the same campus), and all of its luxury amenities. 

Open Tuesday through Sunday, 20lTwenty is the resort’s signature dining destination. The spot offers a rotating menu to accommodate guests at any mealtime, whether it be breakfast, lunch or dinner. 20|Twenty offers a cozy, intimate dining experience with a laidback atmosphere. You can cozy up with a loved one by candlelight with shoreline views or enjoy a casual family-style meal inside. The restaurant serves up fresh, seasonal ingredients sourced from Southern California farmers and features an in-house mixologist handcrafting unique cocktails daily. A daily happy hour is available, and reservations are encouraged for those who want to dine oceanside.
