The room was clean, but I spent very little time in the room because I was in meetings all day and most of the evening. When I checked out, I left a min-tablet in the room and contacted the hotel that same evening. Of course the tablet was not found and I had to keep calling and checking. They only... More

In town for a business conference. The conference hotel was booked. I was disappointed I wouldn't be able to stay at the conference hotel. But was very pleasantly surprised by the overflow choice - the Handlery! Staff very professional, accommodating and friendly. No elevator but staff will take luggage up for you. I had superior room with balcony. Vaulted ceilings... More

I loved the facilities especially the laundry!!! and the restaurant had... More

I am writing this before I leave as I've been here for most of my stay already, and wanted to dispel some bad reviews on Tripadvisor - We booked through Expedia - got a very good rate - When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised that with our booking we got free parking (I think it was due to the...

The rating of 3 is because the pool area and hot tub are nice, although I've never seen the pool have an open bar (it's always closed up, even in mid August, really?) and there is no food service or bar service unless you go inside to the bar near the front desk. Ok, let me say that we had... More

Where does one start! We have stayed at Hotels all across America and this has been the worst by far. We stayed at this hotel for a Conference and must say were very glad when we left and certainly won't be returning. We are regular visitors to San Diego and this is definitely OFF the must stay at list. The... More

They need to be competitive. Cant believe they charged us for parking. There was no breakfast. I have stayed at many places where the price of the hotel is reasonable and they offer free breakfast. They need to be more competitive.There was no soap in the bathroom. Freezer needed defrosting.

Dear Fatima S., We appreciate your feedback to help us provide better service to our guests. I am sorry to hear that there was no soap in your room. This will be forwarded to our Executive Housekeeper. I am hoping that one of our staff members was able to bring you the soap once they were notified. Thank you, Estela... More
