The room was so comfortable and classy. Great location to walk to gas lamp district and the waterfront area. Free-yoga sessions during the week. The Currant restaurant next to the lobby was great and convenient. Highly recommend.

Even though we were there over a weekend, and the room across the hall had a big "Happy 21st Birthday" sign on... More

We stayed at this hotel for Valentines weekend. The hotel is very well located within walking distance to the Gaslamp District, the waterfront and the trolley station. The service was excellent and Jake the concierge went out of our way to make our stay pleasant, even procuring a Valentines Day dinner reservation for us. The rooms are clean and well... More

Hotel rooms are small and LOUD. Our first night we were woken by work trucks at 4:45am. We asked to switch rooms and Leah at the front was not proactive and quite rude. We ultimately ended up in a new room on the second floor respite a request for a room high up on the side facing away from construction.... More

The hotel is located in the heart of historic downtown right on Broadway and just a few blocks from the US Grant Hotel and the Gaslamp District. it's also just minutes from the waterfront. Great architecture and the lobby and guestrooms are beautiful. I booked through a third party website, so the expense was very affordable for a downtown hotel,... More

The Sophia is a very nicely appointed boutique hotel right in the heart of downtown San Diego. Walking distance to many nice restaurants attractions and the convention center! I highly recommend the Sofia for one or two guests, since the rooms are compact, but very nicely appointed and comfortable. The service is very friendly and courteous.

This is a fabulous hotel right downtown. All of the details add up to an excellent, excellent stay. The valet guys were quick and friendly, the front desk was very courteous and professional and most of all really nice, and the room we had was superb. We were automatically upgraded to a suite which is the way to go here,... More
