It was a great location and a cute place to stay. Housekeeping was sad. They took away dirty towels and didn't replace with clean. We had to call to request more towels. The room had two paper cups and once we used them they were never replaced. The glass that was used was never cleaned or replaced.

This hotel is in a restored building from the early 1900s. They have the original elevators! Staff is very nice, rooms are clean. A rooftop area is available to take in a nice panorama of San Diego. If you like enormous plates of food the attached restaurant is decent. Walking distance to all the Gaslamp district and convention center. Very... More

No access to gym as promised . Old and historical in a bad way - air conditioner was noisy , bathroom small and dated . Reasonably quiet - has free shuttle to the airport . Terrible Wifi connection . No gym access as promised , presumably under renovation .
