Nice mall, multi level

Many stores and restaurants, but older mall. Open air multi level which is nice during the summer to enjoy. Most stores are similar to the variety found in any US mall.

This is without a doubt the worst Westfield I've ever visited. Shop after shop was permanently closed, a lack of customers combined with people scavenging through bins gave the place a creepy feel. Didn't spend a cent here, suggest you do the same.

I first visited this site about 25 years ago and it was not great then. Nothing seems to have been done to it since and it definitely does not have the feel of a Westfield Shopping Center

Saw movies here on a rainy day when we mixed the zoo. Shopped and ate after. Nice stores but the mall is uniquely cut up- fun but allow extra time to get unlost!

Just found the mall as we were touring around the Gaslamp District. I found that they had a good variety of stores and some good Christmas sales. Most of the stores are similar to what you would find in a typical mall.

It isn't really living anymore. It was really empty when I got there. Some sellers are making a talk and don't let you go, that is annoying. Lots of stores are vacant. The stores that are there are okay.

A shopping mall with a quirky Art Deco design. Lots of the usual shops, similar to other malls, although a little smaller, despite being located over 4 floors. Lots of parking available, and with a food court on the upper level. No visit to San Diego would be complete without a trip around the mall, if only to view the... More

I was looking forward to visiting this mall on a recent family trip to San Diego after seeing many mentions on Pinterest. This mall has seen better days, And felt run down with many closed stores. Not worth the $10 to park.

The Westfield Horton Plaza is an average mall - actually slightly better than most downtown malls. It didn't have as much selection as I expected. Finding a map to get around, and then figuring out which level was which, was confusing. Wifi was spotty. If you need to do some shopping while at a convention, this mall is a 20-minute... More

Four stories of shops and restaurants. Food is on the fourth floor but nothing too exciting. Go outside and find the courtyard. Lot's of food vendors. Parking is expensive but buy something and get validated. 24 hour fitness members get two hours validation.
