This hotel should have a huge notice on their website "Our entire facility is under a gut renovation" before you book a room. Twice the water was out, another occasion without hot water and an 11:30 power outage in my room was the frosting on the cake. I get it, stuff happens but a simple 'can we help you move... More

Didn't find out this hotel is under renovation until checked in and stopped by elevator. Better if notify customer earlier, cuz somebody might have allergy to the dust and paint.... Inside room is above average, clean n functioning. Not sure when the room service start do rounds. The room was not clean up until 5:30pm. Staff are friendly.

We stayed here during the National Safety Conference in 2014. What a Great Hotel. It is within walking distance of the conference center and the Gaslamp District plus it offered a beautiful view of Coronado Island and the bay. The remodeling others complained about was completed and everything was open for use. The hotel offers a cooked to order breakfast... More

We've stayed at this branch before and was very happy with the service and accommodation. This last stay was disappointing. The hotel was being renovated. The lobby and atrium area was all torn up. I asked about the renovation, check if the pool/spa are operational, she said yes and that the renovation is only at the lobby area. The breakfast... More

I stayed here over the weekend to celebrate my daughters birthday. I was very disappointed with my stay. The hotel is a mess, due to construction, and also very noisy. We had hoped to use the hot tub while visiting and it was closed off due to the construction. I was charged double for parking and had a mystery charge... More

Stayed here Jan 2015. The entire middle of the hotel is under construction so it is off limits. You have to listen to work being done and the breakfast and happy hour is in a moved to a small ballroom. You also have to valet parking for $42 per day. There is no self parking. The staff was very friendly,... More

I've stayed at this hotel before and it's usually been nice, but this time there was major construction in the entire main area of the hotel. This made it very unpleasant and loud during the day, with workers chipping cement off the floor with a loud machine. It may seem unfair to penalize this usually nice hotel due to a... More

Rojayya, Cocktails and snacks always make for a pleasant ending of the day. Especially when they are complementary like they are with Embassy Suites. We hope that you will come back and enjoy our nightly reception in our brand new atrium. On top of our new look we still have our great location that is walking distance to many great... More

Painful experience with the construction going on. Starts at 0700 and all day long. The breakfast and evening receptions were a mess as well. I felt like a lost puppy in the crowd. My room was average with a lot of wear and tear. I did feel sorry for the hotel staff having to put up with weeks of construction,... More
