The front desk staff, specifically Anita, were extremely helpful in finding us a room that fit our needs, recommending activities, restaurants, and transportation options. She also put us on a higher floor (again at her recommendation) to give us a view. The location of the actual hotel is right in the middle of the Gaslamp Quarter, the nightlife / restaurant... More

Very nice hotel. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. The main action of the Gaslamp district happens on 5th Avenue, so being only a block away, you're very close, yet far enough not to be affected by any noise. Very close to Petco Park. Would definitely stay there again.

I am a Marriott Rewards member and this was a reward room, almost free. I benefited from all the tripadvisor reviews and acted apon those recommendations, but I... More

This hotel is great. Great location, nice lobby with lobby bar and the rooms are really comfortable. I had a king room with a flat screen tv, a table and a comfy chair - with a view (in the distance) of the water. The front desk is always pleasant and attentive and the pool and fitness center are great. The... More

One morning on an emergency trip to San Diego I suddenly found myself in immediate need of a hotel. All I knew was that I wanted to stay downtown, in or near the Gaslamp Quarter, if possible, and at a hotel with a pool. I trolled all my hotel apps for bargains. None were to be found. Downtown San Diego... More

The Residence Inn in downtown San Diego is located steps away from restaurants, bars, a number of other hotels and the convention center. It's also in close proximity to seaport village, trolley stops, the USS Maritime and PETCO Park. In addition to the great location, the hotel is clean, with well-appointed mini suites complete with a kitchenette, pull-out sofa bed... More
