The Westin South Coast Plaza

A Hop, Skip, and a Jump to a Shopper’s Paradise

The Westin South Coast PlazaAs everybody knows, South Coast Plaza, in Costa Mesa, California, is every shopper’s dream.  From high end luxury boutiques like Chanel, Hermes, and Louis Vuitton, to contemporary fashion chains and department stores, South Coast Plaza is the place to get all your shopping done in one place.  With so many stores and fabulous restaurants, one would be rushed to actually finish shopping in just one day.  The smarter (and much more enjoyable) choice would be to spread your shopping over a few days and spend a night or two across the street at The Westin South Coast Plaza Hotel.  Conveniently situated adjacent to the South Coast Plaza shopping resort, this hotel is a popular spot with shoppers, business travelers, and vacationers.  A well-located overhead pedestrian bridge over Bristol Street connects hotel guests to South Coast Plaza and offers a gorgeous view while strolling across.  The Westin South Coast Plaza, part of the Starwood Hotel and Resorts Worldwide, Inc. family, is proud to be a pet friendly environment as dogs weighing 40 pounds or less are always welcome.    

The Westin South Coast PlazaThe extensively remodeled hotel boasts of décor that is contemporary and modern with high glass panes in the lobby and white marble flooring throughout.  Its prime location offers shopping galore in addition to a variety of other cultural and entertainment attractions such as Orange County performing arts and museums and the nearby Disneyland Resort, Knott’s Berry Farm and the Aquarium of the Pacific.  Within walking distance to the world renowned Segerstrom Center for the Arts, the Westin is in the perfect spot.  The Westin South Coast Plaza Hotel is a true getaway for locals and tourists as guests can relax comfortably in between shopping sprees and restaurant outings.  For locals, it could be enjoying a romantic or special dinner at one of the fabulous restaurants at South Coast Plaza and not having to worry about driving home as a blissful night at the Westin is right next door.  As far as fine dining goes, there is no need to leave the hotel as one of the best restaurant’s in Orange County, the award winning Pinot Provence, is nestled in the corner of the ground floor.  The Westin South Coast Plaza offers culinary options for every guest, from a quick bite on the go at the Lobby Lounge or Grab-N-Go to an elegant meal in their signature restaurant. 

The Westin South Coast PlazaThis hotel is a haven for relaxation and productivity as their world-renowned Westin Heavenly Bed promises a sublime slumber, while their spa-like Heavenly Bath with massaging jets invigorates the senses.  The Westin also offers luxurious amenities such as a Heavenly dog bed and Heavenly crib upon request.  The Westin Heavenly Dog Bed is a large, square plush pillow that is fit for any canine to sink its paws into.  Dog owners will also be glad to know that the hotel provides a dog mat with a water and food bowl so as to lighten the load for their guests.  For parents with babies, The Westin Heavenly Crib is a fabulous amenity that comes with clean sheets, a blanket, and a pack of cleaning wipes.  The Westin goes the extra step in providing its guests with everything they could possibly need away from home.

The hotel features 393 inviting guest rooms and indoor and outdoor event venues.  Guests can pick their level of luxury accommodations from Traditional Rooms, Deluxe Rooms, The Westin South Coast PlazaJunior Suites, and Luxury Suites.  All guestrooms feature their trademark Westin Heavenly Bed, boasting 10 layers of lush 600 count cotton sheets, down duvets, their patented pillow-top mattress, and a generous collection of plush pillows.  This heavenly bed cradles your body for a deep, undisturbed slumber as you will awake feeling revived and relaxed.  The Traditional Room features a cozy armchair, a 37-inch flat screen TV, and the heavenly bed, available in king, two queens or two double-sized beds.  For stunning views of the park or terrace with complimentary internet, bottled water, and calls, the Deluxe Room is a fabulous choice.  Worth the splurge to make you feel right at home is the 500 square-foot Junior Suite, with a separate living room that transforms into a second bedroom with its The Westin South Coast Plazahidden Murphy bed.  Both the living room and bedroom have their own flat screen TVs and bathrooms.  The Heavenly Bath provides a spa-like experience as the combined shower and tub helps to improve circulation by melting tight muscles.  Not to mention, their signature White Tea by Westin™ Aloe bath amenities leave you feeling invigorated and calm, while a plush bathrobe with cozy slippers await you.  The ultimate getaway would be the 950 square-foot Luxury Suite with abundant sunlight and sweeping sky views.  In addition to the rooms and features of the Junior Suite, this has a dining table for six, a 42-inch flat screen TV, guest bathroom, and wet bar.

The Westin South Coast PlazaAt the Westin, your dining experience will exceed expectations.  Pinot Provence, an award winning restaurant under The Patina Group, offers Provencal dining and fine wines.  Acclaimed Executive Chef Jason Petrie keeps the menu changing based on the freshest ingredients available from farmer’s markets.  Its elegant dining area is touched with the rustic countryside charm of Southern France with its sun-drenched patio and honey-walled cozy interior.  The warm and inviting room is decorated with lush flowers to give it a romantic setting while offering the finest culinary delicacies showcasing seasonal ingredients, classic and contemporary favorites, and an award-winning wine list.  Pinot Provence serves a breakfast buffet in addition to lunch and dinner.  The restaurant opted for a breakfast buffet option as it allowed guests the freedom to dine at their leisure.  A chef in the dining area freshly prepares your custom made omelet with choice ingredients while hot entrees include bacon, sausage links, Eggs Benedict, and more.  The buffet also offers a selection of breakfast pastries, fruit, cheese, cereals, yogurt, and fresh squeezed juices.  But as General Manager Chad Sisco knows, the breakfast buffet is merely a glimpse of the culinary talent that the kitchen at Pinot Provence has to offer as lunch and dinner is where the restaurant truly shines. 

With everything that the Westin South Coast Plaza has to offer, guests can feel at home while away from home.  Treat yourself or someone special to a few nights of relaxation, indulgence, and pure bliss.  For special packages and deals, visit
