Stayed here recently for a conference. It has a nice pool, big beds, and very friendly staff. Everyone was very helpful. It's super close to the trolley as well, which was very nice. Mission Valley wasn't totally what I was hoping for, but it had some good options if you knew where to look. A few good beers at the... More

Hotel accommodations were very nice. Wi-fi is an issue if you're not a Marriott Rewards member. The room was clean, although smelled musty when we arrived. Bed was very comfortable. We used public transportation for our entire stay and found it safe, clean, and easy to navigate. Hotel staff was useless in helping us figure it out however. The Green... More

This is a very nice hotel. The room was clean and kept clean throughout my stay. The beds were comfortable. There is a charge for Wi-Fi in the guest rooms; I was told upon check in that since I was a rewards member that the charge would be waived, however when I checked out there was a charge on my...

We stayed at the hotel for 2 weeks and enjoyed every minute we were there. The room was first rate and comfortable, the staff, front desk, restaurant, bar (Mark, Liza, Vanessa, Logan and Kristen) were most helpful in regard to places to visit, shop and dine. We would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants first class treatment. We would... More

Short 15 min drive from airport, this hidden gem has all the amenities and excellent service you would expect from a Marriott. Guest service very attentive. Room was standard Marriott room - love the beds! Pool, fitness center and restaurant/ bar, all top-notch. Very happy I booked at this location.

This is a ok hotel, more like a motel. Its a fair distance from town/ gaslamp district even by car. There is a train near the hotel. We were there for business at the comic con so it wasn't the best location to be in. But everything else was booked out. Free wifi in the lobby, that's pretty much all... More

This is a nice place to stay when you visit San Diego. Not far from the gas lamp area, not far from north if you are driving into town, overall very central. Nice rooms that were mostly quiet with greet bedding. Our room had a small fridge. Cool looking pool area with a hot tube that is kind of hidden... More

Friendly, helpful staff, lovely lobby and comfortable rooms. We saved some money by "bundling" our wi-fi, parking and breakfast into our rate when we booked. The Marriott charges extra for each of these, and they charge a lot. Our only complaints were the lousy cell service and uncomfortably hot room. We had to use the blackout curtains to keep the...

At first glance, this hotel looks to be on the northern outskirts of San Diego. We were, however, surprised at how comfortable and convenient it was. This is due to San Diego's freeway system (the hotel is just three blocks north of I-8) and the light rail system (the Mission Valley station is a safe, five-minute walk from the hotel... More

I attended a 3 day conference held at this hotel. The hotel was first rate from check in to check out. Valet parking service was well run. Rooms, although not huge, were adequately sized and had tub/shower combo, view balconies, and fridge. Beds were extremely comfortable, as were pillows.
