Just steps out the front lobby doors of our hotel is Westfield Horton Plaza, a rather large modern mal that has become something of a San Diego shopping icon over the years. Its vibrant, bold coloring and unique architectural nuances have made it an attraction in its own right. Here' you'll find most everything for anyone-clothing for everyone, jewelry, electronics, shoes, collectibles, appliances, and a full food court.
Further afield, Seaport Village is home to some of San Diego's best, if not most picturesque, shopping. Over 50 stores make up the tourist attraction, offering all sorts of distinctive gifts. Art, mementos, toys, clothes, you name it-the Village even boasts a lagoon, a carousel, a marina, live entertainment, and 17 great eateries to keep you fueled during your outing. Closer to the hotel, it'd be wise to check out the many shops of the Gaslamp Quarter. Visit BoomShop of Comics, the Industry Showroom, or So Good Jewelry to get a taste of the historic neighborhood and its dynamic character.
