This hotel is extremely cute and the staff is so friendly. When we first stepped in we were offered a variety of drinks for happy hour that are from local distributors. Our room was absolutely adorable and the location of the hotel was perfect for Little Italy. However, there were two downsides. One being that there is limited parking, so... More

One of the best things about Hotel Vyvant, besides the terrific location, is the friendly, happy, helpful staff. The rooms are bright and clean; hallways and lobby spacious and attractive; outdoor gardens cheerful and welcoming; daily breakfast plentiful and delicious; coffee agreeably strong. The staff, however, are exceptional--every phone call, every visit, every time. I am a repeat customer to... More

The whole place is just good quality, both our our rooms were spacious and comfortable, we had one with a shared bathroom which was always clean and had a great shower. The complimentary breakfast was fresh and plentiful. Bakery pastries and local granola along with fresh fruit and coffee. By far the best thing about this hotel is its staff!... More

My family of 4 stayed here for 2 nights while on a week long San Diego vacation. Of the 3 hotels we stayed in on this trip, Hotel Vyvant was by far our favorite. We had room U, which had a private bath plus 2 beds in 1 room and a 3rd bed in another room. The amount of space... More

Had a pleasant stay here in a room with a shared bath. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean, and the hotel staff was exceptionally nice. The continental breakfast was also very good, and the free Happy Hours on Fri-Sat nights were great with good beer and wine. The only improvement would be to have more wall hooks in... More

Love this place. Bekah and the staff A+++. They are the best. SO accommodating and kind. The rooms are quaint and cozy. The generously provide organic toiletries of soap, shampoo and conditioner and body lotion which are great. They also provide an enjoyable breakfast that is included where they offer an amazing granola cereal with a choice of regular milk... More

I think all the other reviews basically cover it. This hotel is amazing. It felt like home, the staff was absolutely wonderful, and every one of our expectations were met. We were celebrating our first wedding anniversary and were greeted by some Italian soda (I'd mentioned we don't drink alcohol) waiting in our room with an anniversary card from the... More

I cannot say enough good things about the service we received at this hotel. Had to make a very quick impromptu trip to San Diego. Many of my plans were very last minute and very haphazardly planned. I was meeting a friend and her 4 kids in San Diego and had all my rooms booked at all the hotels where... More

This hotel was very courteous and registered us by phone around 11pm the night before arrival. We were in a pinch because the hotel we had just checked into was absolutely disgusting (that's another review). Hotel Vyvant was gracious enough to allow an early check in. The only complaints: one toilet was leaking water onto the floor, not enough utensils... More

When we arrived we were concerned about the noise level but we needn't have worried. You can hear the planes but after about 30 minutes you don't even know they are there. Plus, if you have the A/C on, you don't hear anything! The hotel is beautiful with a lot of character and well maintained. And the staff was SO... More
