I stayed here during Comic Con and I must say for the amount of craziness going on during that time this hotel was on top of it. The staff were courteous and very friendly. The people handling the cars were great. I had a room which didn't have a fridge so when I asked them about it. They said they... More

My company regularly uses this hotel for stays. The last several times I have stayed here there have been issues with the front desk. The last time is as simple as a key issue. Knowing we stay here past the check out time it's normal for a hotel to key the room for a late check out. Nothing is worse... More

This hotel does not look like the pictures. Our room was small and smelled moldy and like smoke. When we books this it said it came with a continental breakfast. Upon arrival we found that they were opening a restaurant and the continental breakfast was good one day and then it was $14.95 per person for the breakfast buffet. The... More

If it was not for a trip voucher I received, I would have never booked this for my 5 year old daughter and I. I think this is perfect for the business traveler, but not for a person traveling with a family with children. The hotel is in a centralized location and all of the places we visited were within...

We were in SD just before the madness of Comic-con started, so we were able to get a somewhat decent rate. Every hotel doubled their prices for Comic-con, so we actually had to change our schedule a bit to leave town right before the prices went up. The location of the hotel is great. Real convenient access to the highway.... More

knowing San Diego would be busy during the summer months, I decided to use Priceline.com to find the best deal i could for a price. A word of advice. don't use priceline if you are going to San Diego because you will always fall into the trap of this hotel. It was horrendous. First we discover that it is valet... More

Personally, an amazing experience here. Right from when I called to book my shuttle from the airport to the hotel, to all my requests throughout my stay, the staff were amazingly helpful. Marisa was particularly friendly and helpful numerous times -- big high-fives to her!

Good location to both Little Italy and then a little further to get into the Gaslamp area, but all in all a good location. Rooms were clean, spacious and quiet. The renovations, which should now be completed but did not really affect us. I would stay again.

Ok. But not what we expected. My son and his new wife booked a bank of rooms for his wedding before December of 2013. The rooms were scattered all over the hotel. He had been told the restaurant and bar would be open by the night of his wedding, July 18. It was not. Several of the guests, including us... More
