Great location for Convention center, nice views, easy access to ferry to Coronado Island and a nice park to stroll/jog around in. Gaslamp quarter is within walking distance. They have Enterprise Rental company in the hotel itself, made our rental experience easy and convenient.

Had a wonderful time watching Fourth of July fireworks on the observation deck on the 30th floor. Could see three sets of fireworks. Easy access to a nice bayfront walkway and park. We will be back. That is all I have to say but travelocity is making me type more and more and more and more and more and more... More

We stayed here a week at the end of June. This place is super clean and cozy. Our view was spectacular and it is located minutes from historic gaslamp. We walked there almost daily. The only gripe was the hotel food costs. It was very expensive to eat at the hotel, but kids 5 and below ate free from their... More

This is a good hotel overall and in a very favorable location on the bay and close to the Gaslamp District. Rooms are nicely decorated but small, and there are no balconies. Don't pay extra for a bay view, as the windows are small and the bridge view is just as nice. The pool area is very nice, overlooking the... More

Rather strange but they were very apologetic and offered us free parking however once finally got to the room the bed was hands down the best sleep I have ever had at a hotel and the view was awesome the buffet was good also.

Stayed one night for the 4th of July. Checkin took 35-40 minutes even with HH rewards. Had to re-request window view twice in addition to waiting longer in check-in line. Hotel was understaffed and over priced. Location was great for harbor view. Cleaning lady knocked on the door continously early in the morning, well before check-out. Not the best experience.

Great hotel, very classy and the price was right for such an experience. We were treated like royalty by the staff and our every need was met (such as blankets, etc) immediately. The room was spacious, clean, well appointed and very quiet. They have a printer in the business office and it's free if you need to print your boarding... More

I just had the opportunity to stay at this hotel over the 4th of July weekend. As a Diamond Level with Hilton, Platinum with Marriott (hard to please) I was extremely pleased. This was a pleasure trip with the family dog ($50 extra fee). The entire staff was friendly, attentive to detail and we had a positive experience. This can... More

We stayed here from July 3-7, 2013 in a 12th floor, corner room, facing the bay.. Although it was the July 4th week-end and the hotel was at or near capacity, we experienced no problems which were not quickly remedied. One day we were short towels, but that was quickly taken care of by a telephone call. Our friends experienced... More

In town for a conference and the location could not be more perfect. Room was nice with a large picture window. Nothing but a coffee maker, so be prepared to eat out. Elevator was pretty noisy, so bring a sound machine or as for a room far away from elevator if you are a light sleeper. Hotel has many options... More
