Stayed there for one night, the hotel has a great location, nearby Seaport Village, walkable location to to the Gas lamp district and the USS Midway. The rooms were clean. They have a decent complimentary breakfast. The staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel is suited for families more than bachelors. Valet parking was a bit expensive.

I have a feeling I'm in a "back-up" room for last minute bookings. (I'm working an event in Coronado, the places there were already booked-so this was the next choice from my employers.) The bed is pretty good, the pillows are a little flat. There is a fair amount of rust in the bath, the ceiling has some stains. There's... More

I have stayed at this hotel in the past and this time I was disappointed to find that they have raised the valet fee to $39.00!! First of all there is no other option - there is no self parking with in the hotel structure. So to handicap the guests at paying the $39.00 is wrong. ESPECIALLY when you have... More

I have a work conference in San Diego every August and often bring the family. This hotel is an excellent choice for families because it has a two room suite and a refrigerator. It is ideally located right next to Seaport Village and all of the attractions. There is also a close by stop for the trolley and the bus... More

Next to Seaport Village, walking distance to the Gas lamp district and the USS Midway. The rooms were very clean and spacious. They offer snacks and 2 hours of free drinks including San Diego based craft beers on tap that are rotated regularly. They offer a decent complimentary hot breakfast. The staff is friendly and helpful. Overall, great stay.

Location perfect! Never had a problem here (at least 4 different stays over the past 10 years). Staff wonderful. If a minor problem, they address it immediately. Perfectfor conferences at the convention Center. Additional restaurants etc right across the street.

I have to say one thing that stands out is the Excellent Service and helpful staff; Th hotel provides complimentary drinks and breakfast and both were fantastic. The bar staff were very helpful and snacks provided were good. The hotel is centrally located and close to most amenities, especially the Convention Center without being in the middle of the hustle... More

One night stop in San Diego to go to zoo. This embassy is gorgeous. Rooms very spacious. Wish they had queens instead of doubles. The pullout sofa was pretty uncomfortable for teenage son, but the hotel itself is very nice and everyone very helpful and friendly!

Our airline changed our arrival time. The embassy suites got us into a room by 11:30 am. The breakfast and staff were good. The drawback was some of the cleaning crew doesn't start until late so you may not have a cleaned room until very late in the afternoon. Other than that it was an enjoyable experience at this hotel.

This hotel is a typical embassy but appeared a bit older when you consider noise, furniture or cosmetic areas such as doors. The standard breakfast was good with lots of options. However the happy hour was a disappointment. The appetizers were nothing more than a bowl of tortilla chips and pretzels. It is easy to walk along typecast to naval... More
