Baronial is the word for the Westgate Hotel, whose logo includes a crest and whose curtains and crown moldings smack of the palatial. Yet its down-to-earth service takes away any taint of stuffiness. The Westgate also puts its online promotions where its art is: The Arts & Culture Diversion package ($415) comes with a $100 gift certificate good toward tickets to the San Diego Opera, San Diego Symphony, Broadway San Diego, or any other local theater production. Redeem that stately reward, and you’ll receive two tickets to either the San Diego Museum of Art or to the Museum of Contemporary Art. As icing on the cake, $100 actually gets you into the symphony or the theater, and only $15 more gets you into the opera. Bravo!
