We stayed here for 4 nights this summer and were pleasantly surprised by how quiet it was. Our room overlooked the small pool but had no problems with noise from that, the nearby highway or the train tracks on the other side of the building. Staff were friendly and competent. Breakfast had some change up every day to keep it... More

This was the second time we have stayed here and both visits were great. Valet staff, bell service, the concierge service and front desk were polite and accommodating. Eric Q was the stand-out staff member here for sure. He accommodated our multiple requests to grab our car from valet, and handled getting our bicycles stored for the day. Will we... More

We stayed here on a Saturday nigt, early August. We had checked out of another Hotel, but weren't ready to go home. We have stayed at Embassy Suites before, so we knew what to expect. This Hotel has an unbeatable location, close to Downtown, Gaslamp, Balboa Park, across from Seaport Village shops, a mall and restaurants and with very nice... More

I did canceled my reservation within the 72 hours, but deleted the e-mail, got charge $350.00. Call numerous time and... More

We have been staying at the Embassy Suites San Diego for over ten years and chose to stay there to celebrate our 40th anniversary. We wanted a memorable stay, and it was, just not the way we wanted. When we first checked in, the desk clerk assigned us a room directly across from the elevator, despite my profile indicating I... More

Clete, thank you for sharing your experience in such great detail. I regret that it was memorable in the wrong way. We are a popular destination for many different types of visitors, especially during summer weekends. Unfortunately the popularity of our hotel had impact on your stay.

Valet were very helpful and accommodating. Front Desk staff courteous and efficient. Bell Hop friendly and helpful. Nice Bay View room we requested. clean fresh and quiet. Healthy Koi fish in lobby-like to see attention to details such as Koi pond. Beware of Baskin Robbins employees - disorganized and confusing. all in all great place to stay.

I have waited three hours for a room. This was not a last minute trip, my reservation was made weeks ago. You would think that a hotel could get a room serviced in less than 3 hours. Will not stay here again. Probably cancel my Hilton Honors after this lousy experience.

Been here twice in the past 18 months. First was to go to SD Zoo with the kids (booked 2 suites, 1 for parents and 1 for my family), the latter was to celebrate my parent's Wedding Anniversary and booked the Presidential Suite for all. Positives: - The suite was larger than most apartments I've been. 2 bedrooms separated by... More
