We stayed over Thanksgiving and had a great time. Unique experience in a small hotel. We stayed in the Pine Tub suite, and the pine tube was very nice. The food at the Thanksgiving buffet was very good. Staff was very helpful. We had no trouble with the parking, and it was nice to stay in Old Town where we... More

It was a wonderful look back into the lives of the first Spanish settlers of San Diego, Ca, who arrived in 1769. The Cosmopolitan Hotel is in Old Town San Diego - the Presidio, and was originally the home of early ranchero Juan Bandini, known as Casa de Bandini. Later it was bought by a man named Seeley. It is... More

We say here every year during the festival of Dia de Los Muertos. It was a surprise to see that a lot of the hotel staff was new when we arrived, but all were wonderfully gracious, helpful and willing to go the extra mile. I wrote a review for this last year, but I guess I made the mistake of... More

We had two room for two nights. Rooms clean, pretty and comfortable. Try and find someone to help you, well you'll have to find the kitchen staff. We prepaid a few weeks ahead, when we asked for a receipt the restaurant hostess told us they don't give one, and that all we had to do was show up. When I... More

Old Town San Diego State Historic Park and its Cosmopolitan Hotel are within walking distance of the Amtrak train stop; wheeled luggage is helpful. The Hotel began as an adobe La Casa de Bandini in 1829 and the wooden second story was added in 1869 to create a stage stop hotel. In 2010, the State reopened a restored hotel. The... More

We were in the area for a family reunion and choose the Cosmopolitan having seen it from prior visits. The rooms are charming, the service is gracious, had a lovely dinner for 10 in a private room. We were there for two nights and loved it!! Look forward to visiting again.

My wife gave me a Birthday party recently and it was located outside in the court yard of the Cosmopolitant Restaurant, in Old Town, San Diego, CA. We had great weather that night and the food was excellent, under the direction of Chef Niko. All my friends really enjoyed the menu and availability of a great selection of beer, wine... More

We treated ourselves to a 1 night stay at the Cosmopolitan. We live less than 3 miles away and just wanted to get away for a day and feel like we were on vacation in a quiet beautiful place. Old Town and the Cosmopolitan made it happen. Our room was perfect: no phone, no TV, and no alarm clock. We... More

The family of the wedding party stayed at this delightful old hotel in the middle of Old Town San Diego. The prices were reasonable for San Diego. There are only about 10 rooms, all individually decorated reflecting the ambiance of an past era. The room I chose was immaculately clean and tastefully decorated, including a claw foot tub which is... More

The Cosmopolitan was a nice hotel. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The A/C did not work right so it was very hot in the room but other than that it was great; clean, nicely furnished and comfortable bed. Would stay again.
