About Westfield Horton Plaza, San Diego
This is a five story outdoor shopping mall with some rather bizarre architecture and layout. The colors of the various levels don't match either, there are random long ramps, and the kookiest corners. That said, there are over a hundred stores here, covering well known outlets such as Nordstrom and Macy's and local stores. There are a number of eateries, including a food court. There is a movie theatre. Some people are put off by the strange design of the mall, but you'll never know until you visit.

Westfield Horton Plaza, San Diego Reviews - Write a Review
I loved this place! It has a ton of character and charm and is so unique. Every time you turn around they're is something new to discover. Didn't do any shopping here due to time constraints but I had a blast walking around the entire area. Pictures don't do it justice you just have to experience it for yourself. Would love to come back when I have more time.
For it being in the middle of downtown parking usually is not the biggest problem due to their large parking garage as well as the cheap prices that usually go along with parking there. I just recommend that you get your parking receipt validated, because if you don't then parking can be pretty expensive depending on how long you stay. When it comes to the stores in the mall there is a very wide selection that fits any range of personality, Unlike other malls in San Diego.
This place is a luxury retail outlet situated in Downtown San Diego. I originally visited this place in 2010 while on my honeymoon and now have returned as a resident to see some struggle and decline occurring. This mall provides an outdoor shopping experience coupled with a comedy club and movie theater to create a well rounder multipurpose shopping experience. However, as shopping malls go by the wayside to make way for Amazon and others to rule the American shopping experience, developers and property managers of malls like this must be aware that parking and transportation costs are a big contingency when trying to attract and retain faithful patrons in a down economy with a plethora of competition. Westfield has the potential to maintain its status a luxury destination shopping center but ditch the parking fees and make the old Nordstroms an indoor skydive center or something similar in order to attract teens and young adults back to the area. I do love the fact that this place fosters the performing arts by hosting a yearly film festival...I believe more events like this will help revitalize and restore this downtown gem.
This place needs to be rebuilt completely. To be clear, this is not a review about any of the individual stores, rather the mall as a whole. For being in the middle of downtown SD, this mall offers nothing that says San Diego. It's just a hodgepodge of generic stores that can be found anywhere and are hard to navigate between. There are confusing levels in between levels and the whole thing just feels cheaply done. Downtown SD deserves better than this.
Google is prompting me to review Horton Plaza Mall ! What is there to review? other than I'm depressed that such a unique looking mall is almost dead in the water and that lately all we hear is that there have been some "unpleasant" incidents. So, normally I would encourage you to come and shop but either way is too late. Don't even know what's going to happen with the place; some say may become housing but supposedly "my" 24Hr fitness will remain, so do join ;-)
