Relatively quiet even though it is near a very busy highway. Food is good. Fitness room and pool are small. Staff is friendly. Nice grocery store (Ralphs) not too far. About a mile walk to waterfront. Not far from gaslamp quarter.

This hotel is next to the freeway, businesses & a law library. it's not vacation style, but very convenient to restaurants, shopping, bars, banks & other entertainment. I'm from the east coast & I like to walk. From this hotel, I could get to the Walgreens, BOA, Starbucks & lots of nice establishments in Little Italy. The parking is only... More

Round building (formerly Holiday Inn) just a few blocks from San Diego Bay & Embarcadero. clean. Complimentary shuttle within 3 miles. Walk to Little Italy's many shops and restaurants; Sunday Farmers' Market nearby is huge. Ask for view of bay. Initial problem with wifi but resolved by quick call.

The property is valet parking only, but with unlimited in-out privileges and no more than a few minutes wait the charge is worth it in this city of inflated hotel parking costs. Checking in, was effortless and with smiles. The staff was courteous asking how our drive in was, offering suggestions for events in the area and furthermore asking if... More

Ali came over and told us, "don't take a cab; I can drive you [complimentary hotel shuttle]!" We told him that we were completely out of tip money, and... More
