It is a good hotel with a standard amenity package. A few things, however, were a bit above average. The hotel is located up the hill overseeing the bay, which is very nice. The neighborhood is clean and typically quiet (apart from occasional roaring of jet engines as airplanes take low landing approach). It's in a walking distance from many... More

Stayed here for 3 nights due to a work event. They had meeting space and were flexible. Rooms were clean and big. Hotel was not noisy at all. They accommodated a group of around 50 people. I realy enjoyed the food at the restaurant on top of the building. The view was magnificent.

I booked this hotel, really a glorified motel, as part of a package with breakfast, discounted valet parking, and a bottle of wine. The location is excellent, right above the Little Italy area, one of my favorite places in San Diego. Our room was clean and reasonably comfortable, but with a very firm bed and rock-hard pillows. The A/C didn't... More

Beautiful view of the harbor from the restaurant/bar! Fun atmosphere! Great location in Little Italy in a good location - close to airport, close to I-5, and close to Harbor Drive! Employees were friendly and helpful!

We came to celebrate our dear friends 25th anniversary and rented the Midway suite for the night. The accommodations were great! Our room had been newly renovated and the feel was spacious and comfortable. Our Hostess Alexandra Daigle was very professional and helpful at making us feel welcome and at home. Needless to say the rest of the hotel, dinner... More

My husband and I stayed at the hotel for three days to attend an anniversary party. The venue couldn't have been better! Lovely hotel, great service, perfect location. We booked our room with Alexandra Daigle who was very professional and extremely competent representative of the hotel. Bravo to her and your hotel.

Alexandra Daigle helped us with the reservations and the check-in. She was extremely helpful, friendly and very professional. She did an awesome job. Check-out went very smooth. Enjoyed the bar so much, no real need to go elsewhere. All the staff was so welcoming. Beautiful hotel. We look forward to returning to San Diego as soon as possible and we... More

We paid about $130 with a Groupon Voucher for 1 night King Room. We wanted to stay in Little Italy because we had never been there, and it was convenient to the trolley. We had tickets to the Padres baseball game. Our stay was okay. Pros: Location was good in Little Italy but too close to freeway noise if you... More

My husband and I were planning a month long trip to California, travelling down the coast from San francisco to San Diego and then over the mountains to the dessert. Saw a Groupon deal for San Diego and booked it. I knew from the first two minutes on th ephone with the front desk that I had made the right... More
