What can I add that others haven't said? We chose this hotel because of its apparent central position and we got it right! No complaints at all. We requested a room at the back of the hotel and, although the view was non-existent, it was much quieter. The concierge was very helpful even to the point of joking with us,... More

You did get it right we are in the heart of downtown San Diego with so much to see and do! The views from our rooms are of the downtown area due to our location. I’m glad to hear that our guest guides were helpful and fun. I’m also happy that you were able to use the public transportation with... More

This resort is not an hotel but an apartment hotel. The room is very clean but nobody will do the cleaning during you stay and there will be no change of towel as well. I got room at the back of the hotel with a view on big sexshop :). It was very clean. The location is excellent on the... More

The Wyndham Harbor Lights is located a block away from Horton Plaza and in the middle of the Gaslamp Quarter, so it has a great location for visiting San Diego. The rooms are spacious, the staff is pretty good and the concierge was very helpful. The only downside I can see is that they charge $30 a day for parking.... More

I almost hesitate to say how much I love this place because I don't want anyone else there! This is a hotel in the heart of the gaslamp district of San Diego. While there are some amenities, expect only what you would find at a hotel. However, every room has a kitchenette so that's helpful. The downside is that almost... More

We stayed here as a family in May and it was great. We had a rental car but rarely needed it as we were walking distance of almost everything. The room was large, clean and spacious. Staff was very friendly. The beds were super comfy. The only downside was valet parking was our only option and it was expensive.

The Wyndham Harbour Lights building was formerly a boutique hotel, and can possibly be classified as one today. Calling it Harbour Lights is a stretch....it doesn't actually imply you're looking at the harbor. It is located in the middle of the San Diego party district, also known as the Gas Lamp District. We have room 704 which faced 5th Street.... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. You are right Harbour Lights is in the heart of the Gaslamp district and does not have a direct view over the San Diego Harbor. The Harbor is a 5 min drive, 20 min walk or 15 min by public transportation. There are some fantastic restaurants located on the Harbour... More

This location is the center of everything. No car needed! There is only one suite that has a bedroom and living room, all the rest are studio's. Room 708 is the 'penthouse suite'!

I’m pleased that you enjoyed your visit to downtown San Diego. The gaslamp district offers countless boutiques, over 200 restaurants, bars, nightclubs and lounges and art galleries. You are right downtown can get a little noisy. In the future we will be installing new windows in order to reduce some of the outside noise. There is plenty of public transportation... More

Great timeshare in the middle of the Gaslamp District. There are restaurants and bars galore. If you don't mind walking a bit, the harbor area is less than a mile. The rooms are spacious and have a small kitchen. The comment from a previous reviewer about the ear plugs should be heeded. The barflys who stay out late tend to... More
