Stayed two nights at this hotel (7/19/14-7/21/14) with my wife. How this earns a 4-star rating is beyond me. The stay began poorly with more than a 45-minute wait for check-in. The poor experience was reinforced with a 50-minute wait for our car from the valet, road noise from the traffic on West Harbor Drive in our room and an... More

Let me start of with this: THIS IS NOT A RESORT PROPERTY! Yes, there is a very nice pool and great restaurants BUT it is also a Business hotel... Meaning that there are a lot of people there not going to relax. But here is the actual review. I thought the rooms were very nice and our view was spectacular.... More

We stayed for two nights (Sat. and Sun.) on the July 4th long weekend. We had booked a room with 2 queen beds but when we arrived on Saturday night the room type we had booked was no longer available. The gentleman at reception was extremely helpful and offered us an alternative room plus a $100.00 credit towards the room.... More

The 4th of July holiday is a very festive time for our city and our hotel that overlooks the Fireworks event. I appreciate that you chose our location to celebrate the holiday. I am sorry that the room type you had requested was not available during your stay. I hope you were able enjoy the bay view and that you... More

Staff who seem more focused on just completing tasks, not smiling, saying thanks or even really acknowledging the guests. And I can't believe management doesn't issue instructions to staff like "don't walk in front of them rudely when you are moving around the hotel facilities" or "smile, say hi, and ask if the guest needs anything". Really lousy service overall.... More

Decided to try this hotel since my husband and his work all have Marriot cards. My husband is an Elite member wanting to grow points, so he convinced me to stay despite me being a loyal Hilton member. First, the Manager for the Food and Beverage is by far the worst! I ordered a drink the first day, just to... More

One of the best hotels to stay in, in San Diego. The location is perfect, the view to die for, and the ambiance and neighborhood the best to be at for a short, quick trip in the downtown marina area. Perfect.

By Marriotts admission and harbor police who helped investigate, this was not the first time bikes were stolen from the hotel parking lot, and previously an individual was caught in the act with wire cutters attempting to detach a bike from a car. In our case 2 expensive carbon fiber triathlon bikes were stolen, bike rack vandalized, on Sunday, in... More

We stayed here in April, beautiful hotel and great staff...location was perfect to walk to the Gaslight District. The hotel has a wonderful pool and cafe. The views were excellent, especially on the rooftop. I would recommend staying here if at all possible when you travel to San Diego!

I was attending a conference at a nearby hotel but chose to stay at the Marriott. It's a fabulous location, right on the water and a short walk to the Gaslight district, the Embarcadero Park, Seaport Village and the ballpark. The pool is very cool, like something you'd see in Vegas. There's a 24hr cafe (very convenient for those late... More

You would think that booking at a really nice really expensive hotel you would get better service and have a better stay then the holiday inn. We got in and got our room that over looks a roof. Why stay at the marina if you don't have a view. Our air conditioner didn't work but when we asked for a... More
