Staff was great, small rooms but perfect for 2 in town for a quick getaway. Great location right around the corner from downtown and walking distance to almost everything around. There's a great rooftop view available for guests

What you don't know is how incredible the roof top... More

This is a beautiful, old-fashioned hotel with lots of character and friendly staff. The double rooms are actually two connected rooms. I was also amazed by the roof deck, which has amazing views and nice seating. Next time I am in San Diego, I will definitely be back.
