Stayed here last June and loved the place and the city!! Girls on the front desk were great with everything(directions,recommendations & service) Parking was on the street outside and was only hard on certain days(because of street cleaning) but never an issue. Rooms we're comfy and clean, breakfast was nice and location is great!! Only reason it doesn't get full... More

My husband and I stayed following our cruise. It was a fabulous location. When you first arrive and see that it is at the base of a bridge that enters the highway it is a little disconcerting. But do not worry; once you're inside it all disappears! It is a short walk to the water and just steps from some... More

This is a great little hotel in the heart of Little Italy. The breakfasts are great. The staff is very helpful. It's almost like a bed and breakfast. Our flight from Florida was delayed so long that we missed our connection to San Diego, so we didn't arrive for the first night of our planned 3-night stay. Because I was... More

We travel a lot - primarily to Europe - and I have never stayed in a hotel in the US that can live up to high German standards. Never...until now! The hotel is beautifully decorated, the rooms were clean, beds were comfortable, and the complimentary breakfast was top quality food and it hit the spot! They serve breakfast until 10... More

This was our second visit to Hotel Vyvant, the previous being last August. We came back because it was so perfect last time. Well, Perfect ... AGAIN for our spring break trip. Our room was clean, comfortable and just what we expected. We were in a deluxe queen room. We were on the courtyard side, so quieter and gathered the... More

I stayed at this quaint hotel for two nights, since it was convenient to a temporary work assignment. What a great place! The room was perfect for a brief stay. My room faced Grape Street and the traffic noise was quite tolerable, with plenty of sunshine and fresh air too. There is a small courtyard area for quiet coffee in... More

My husband & I first stayed here the week that John bought the hotel. Even in that first stay, we could tell that staff would be a priority at this always more lovely boutique hotel. In successive stays we have seen the continuing improvements to the property but as from the beginning, it is the staff that makes this the... More

Pros: Friendly, responsive staff who go the extra mile; location in Little Italy; comfortable, clean room; quality continental breakfast goodies from local merchants; personalized tips & restaurant recommendations included in rooms; good value for quality. Cons: Street & freeway noise; location of shared bathroom; poor TV reception. Advice: Request quiet room and pay extra for private bathroom.

Everyone was really nice but we did not have the greatest experience. First, we arrived late on a Friday night and spent almost an hour looking for parking which was impossible. I had two little ones who were exhausted. Ashly tried her best to be helpful but it did not help that parking was such a major issue. We got... More
