I had another great stay at PV. The management and staff are outstanding! Everyone is extremely friendly and courteous. I love the location and the view. The location is very convenient and there are so many great places to walk to as soon as you step out of the hotel. On site parking also! I love staying here!

Service is absolutely amazing. Couldn't ask for a better location. You're walking distance of everything worth going to in little Italy. I would recommend this place for a stay and plan on coming back for another visit soon. The view from the restaurant is perfect and the bar service from Charles top notch.

Super good food. And great service. Charles is awesome. We had duck fries, meat and cheese board and Mediterranean plate. The pita was amazing. Beautiful view and cool vibe.... Little Italy was fun to walk around and great atmosphere

The beautiful restaurant space at The Glass Door is perfectly designed with seats and bar top that stretch along the bayside view. Service was outstanding! Selections fantastic. This is a hidden gem in Little Italy whether for a gathering of friends, romantic date or special event for a 100 or more. We will definitely be back often as locals! Thanks... More

Love the evenings on their deck. Fine service. Fine view. A great place to meet with friends and relax. The bartenders are very nice.. especially Big Mike.... We will be back to kick back and enjoy the evening.

i've had two recent stays,One in In the member and again in December in the beginning of the month. First let me say, I have read some of the other reviews on different websites. And I would be lying if I wasn't a little concerned before staying. But as we know not everything that's on the web is true. So... More

We had a nice, week long stay at PV. The management and staff were more than accommodating to our special needs and by booking direct with the hotel we saved $$. The location was most convenient and the amenities were more than adequate. On site parking and breakfast were a real + and we were comfortable and cozy, when we... More

We visited San Diego for my mother's birthday in October. The Proto Vista has modern, well appointed rooms and a friendly knowledgeable staff. We have stayed before and were met with the same friendly, urban vibe. There is a wonderful restaurant on site, the Glass Door great for drinks overlooking the bay and then dinner. If you're looking for a... More

I had a business trip in San Diego Kearny Mesa, but read the reviews about Porto Vista and thought I'd give it a try. Great location near the airport, in Little Italy, which had a great feel about it. The restaurant had French fries made with duck fat! Awesome, especially paired with a great burger. The restaurant has a cool... More
