Beautiful hotel, amazing location and friendly staff make this place worth staying at! We stayed for 3 nights and had a wonderful time! We were given a gorgeous room with a stunning view of the marina. The pool was perfect, and there's even a Starbucks downstairs! You can walk across the bridge to gaslamp and uber over to Coronado island.... More

My mom & I stayed at the hotel for a long weekend getaway. We arrived at 5 pm on a Friday night & left Monday morning. From the moment we pulled up, I knew that I'd chosen a great hotel. From the valet to the front desk staff, we were treated like VIP's (which of course we are, lol). The... More

Great hotel and location! We never needed a car due to the location and access to public transportation. It is right next to Seaport Village & the Gaslamp District. Lots of places to see, things to do and places to eat. It is also right across the street from the baseball stadium.

The hotel is located next to Petco Field and the waterfront. The service was superior, and the meals within the conference were good. I wish I could have stayed longer and enjoyed this setting. I highly recommend the hotel for people who are vacationing in San Diego.

Stayed here while on business during Aug. Overall very happy with the hotel the staff and all amenities that were offered. I was fortunate to get a room on the marina side of the hotel. I had wonderful views of the bay overlooking convention center. One of my fellow business travelers was on the back side and well it is... More

Pool staff and housekeeping are friendly, but the pool is public and some very rude people not from the hotel were cursing and making a fool out of themselves. We did not pay hundreds of dollars to share a pool with people who didn't pay a cent. Additionally, we were supposed to get $50 of credit per day, but they... More

We typically stay here as it is conveniently located. Rooms are small but adequate. The view, especially the city views, are excellent. Great place to watch the San Diego Pops fireworks display! Pool always has lots of children and caters to them with children's movies at night. The well-lit, one-sink bathrooms are very clean, with large showers (no tub). Especially... More

Stayed at this wonderful hotel and got upgraded to a really big room with wonderful views of both down town, the bay and Coronado. Big modern hotel with "everything". One of the best breakfast we have eaten although it was a little bit crowded in the morning so you had to sit down and wait a couple of minutes. Nice... More

We stayed in this hotel in June and we cannot say enough good things about it! The hotel was centrally located, very clean and with really friendly staff. Our room was on the top floor which gave us an amazing view. The room was quite large and had everything you would need. The pool area looked fabulous but unfortunately we... More
