My wife and I split our trip to SD into 2 days here, two days downtown and 2 days at La Jolla. It was a great way to explore the city. I ran from different locations every morning, and then we explored what SD had to offer during the day. This location is probably the most central if you want... More

My husband and I traveled here for a vacation; we chose the Catamaran because we wanted a beach location and on that note the hotel really delivers! There is a beach out the back door and a block away out of the front door. Three blocks from the hotel is a grocery store(Ralph's) and a Starbucks in addition to several... More

I spent 3 nights at this hotel for a small conference I was attending. The reception staff were warm and welcoming. The valet - not very attentive or helpful overall. Atoll restaurant is very nice (see review on TA) - perhaps the best part is the outdoor seating, heating lamps and Fire pits. Also, the Staff are very friendly and... More

We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary at the Catamaran. The package we purchased included breakfast, which was a great value. Service from all the staff was great. Everyone was friendly. The location of the hotel is just a block away from the beach and the hotel is on the bay.

A second honeymoon brought us to the Catamaran for a couple of days. We enjoyed their beautiful grounds, friendly staff and a day at the spa, including a couples massage. Just a walk across the street to Pacific Beach and shopping. Our room in the highrise was comfortable, with a lovely view of Mission Bay, but due for updating. We... More

I traveled to San Diego for a conference and wanted some where close to the bay where I could relax in the evenings and the Catamaran was just the spot. My reservations were setup by Tara and I could not have asked for a better room. She was very informative, energetic and sweet and her information about the room and... More

The Tower had fantastic views of the waterfront. Bed was comfortable, the food at the hotel was good. Also convenient to walk to restaurants such as World Famous. Victoria Hartwell was excellent along the AV, Catering Managers and staff. No hiccups at all and all my members of the board loved their stay over a three day weekend retreat.

This family friendly resort manages to live up to grown up expectations too, while offering relaxed yet professional customer service, that seems sincere and unrehearsed. We live nearby but wanted to spend a day and night close to downtown, for my husband's 50th. We rented a sailboat, went to the spa and swam in the pool. The kids loved the... More

Perfect vacation. Pacific ocean on one side and Mission Bay on the other. Tropical paradise garden right outside our patio room. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! Very helpful friendly staff. Cannot say enough good things about this place. We had the Bed and Breakfast package and it was awesome. Can't wait to come back and bring the family.
