My husband and I were going to San Diego to see a football game and decided to stay somewhere that would be within walking distance of little Italy, Gas Lamp District and the trolley station so I checked a few websites. The Sofia Hotel came up on a few different websites so we decided to try it because of what... More

We were in town for a wedding and spent three nights here. Firstly, the location was great. Right in the middle of downtown, easy walk to countless restaurants and shopping, not more than 5 minutes from the Gaslamp District. The hotel itself is very nice. It's what you'd expect for this kind of price. Attention to detail, flavored water in... More

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in October. The hotel room was extremely clean and complimentary bottles of water each day. Hotel is conveniently located within walking distance to Gaslamp District, Seaport Village and also Little Italy. Room was small but we only used the room to sleep so it was fine. Reception staff were very friendly, obliging... More

5 minute walk to the Westfield Shopping Centre and also very close to the Gas Lamp District which has a huge selection of restaurants and bars. Where the location is excellent, the room was quite small but if you are just needing a place to lay your head after days out sightseeing and nights out eating and drinking then this... More

We liked every aspect of this hotel. The staff at the front desk was pleasant. The rooms were always made up early and the cleaning staff friendly. The rooms are not the largest but we requested a corner room, it had more windows and made it feel that much bigger. They do have suites available at a reasonable nightly cost... More

I stay here frequently when I have business in San Diego. Comfortable rooms,friendly staff and good bar. Room rate for Jr. Suite are reasonable and make for a comfortable setting. Rooms are quiet and can have nice city views.

Booked about 4 days out from our one-night stay downtown and we got a great rate ($156 total with tax and daily resort fee). Quick 5 minutes at most walk to all Gaslamp dining and drinking but really the service is what set our visit apart. In town for a wedding, the wrinkles in the shirt my boyfriend was planning... More

This is our second stay in 6 months and we'll go back. The good is location - free bike rentals (there is a fee with room so take advantage of this perk) bottled water in room - complimentary yoga 2x a week and the valet staff are fabulous. Our interactions with Brian and Charlie were beyond helpful. Previous stay we... More

My husband and I do not typically stay in "fancy schmancy" hotels but decided we would treat ourselves this round. We enjoyed The Sofia Hotel very much! The guys at the valet were very friendly/helpful BUT it is $$$ to park there ($34-ouch)! We checked in on a Friday afternoon and our flights were on Saturday (at 7 pm). It... More

This hotel had a great location and the room although cozy was very nice. The staff were very friendly and helpful. This was close to everything and shopping and the attractions were within walking distance.
