Excellent location. Friendly staff. Upgraded without asking. Rooftop breakfast is excellent. Bed comfortable, clean and very spacious. The breakfast provided on the rooftop was a good way to meet other travellers and compare notes.

The location of this hotel was perfect--we walked everywhere. We booked through booking.com and got very good rates in the mid two-hundred dollar range. Compared to what we pay for this type of this type in New York City or San Francisco, we felt like we hit the jackpot. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. We thought the room... More

Beautiful renovated classic hotel. I was assigned the showcase suite (booked thru Expedia). So we loved every minute. Free rooftop breakfast was great. Valet parking was $32, but local parking garage was $20/nite and $12/day (8-5pm) anyway. Photos were accurate, I'm a photographer, so know this: when you walk into the lobby from bright sunlight, the beautiful white marble and... More

We have been staying at this hotel for years now and it remains our favorite because of the location. Everything is within walking distance (ball park, museums, nightclubs, bars). The rates are a little high in my opinion since the hotel isn't the "newest" but overall it is always a great time there. Extremely friendly staff, especially Shawn who always... More

The location in the Gaslamp Quarter was outstanding, nice sights, restaurants and shopping within an easy walk from the hotel. The room was fairly spacious, a nice living room area. One great feature is the open air rooftop breakfast area, a great view of San Diego, the complementary breakfast food was good as well.the bed was comfortable and we were... More

We stayed here in July for a weeklong vacation in San Diego. Centrally located right in the heart of the gaslamp district. The rooms are good sized, little fridge and microwave, fit with the older style of the building. The roof top terrace is amazing, they offer an ok carb rich breakfast there in the morning. We enjoyed it in... More

Stayed here for 4 nights with friends I'm travelling with. We had a great time and were really pleased with the location of the hotel. The customer service was also really good. There is no free wifi in the room, but you could pop to the rooftop for use of wifi for free which suited us perfectly. We used the... More

I'm a history buff so that the hotel's history alone made me like the hotel. This building was San Diego's first skyscraper. This building started off as a bank and then became an office building before becoming a hotel in 1988. You can feel the building's history while walking through the halls to your room. The doors to your room... More
