I picked this hotel based on a few things as we have Diamond status with Hilton- 1. We didn't need a car as it is perfectly located to Little Italy, Gas Lamp District and Harbor. 2. I booked a Food Tour with San Diego Bites that ended here and this hotel is near the Coaster so we could head up... More

Decent, clean hotel in a fantastic location. Just steps from Little Italy and only a short jaunt to the Gaslamp district, this is a wonderful base in San Diego. It is very close to the airport. Depending on where your room is there's some noise from the highway and airport, but that's not a dealbreaker for me. The warm cookies... More

I booked this hotel because we had an early morning flight and it's close to the SAN airport. Supposedly it's a 3 1/2 star hotel but it feels more like 2 1/2. The room was large with a balcony but everything seemed really cheap. The dresser was leaning to the right, there were chips and cracks in the bathtub and... More

I stayed one night for business. I like the location (walking distance to Little Italy), the price, the quality, friendliness of the staff and of course, the warm chocolate chip cookie I got when I checked in. Yum! I would definitely stay here again.

Will never book with Trip Advisor again. Overcharged for room. Horrible hotel. Also told that hotel was only 2 blocks from where I needed to walk to and it was really an avenue away. Big difference. The only good thing that came out of this stay was that the staff was nice, but hotel was old and dirty.

Stayed at the hotel for a conference hosted at the hotel. The location was convenient to restaurants in the area, which was nice because the hotel shuttle did not go anywhere but the airport. Customer service was mixed - sometimes good, sometimes awful. Lobby area was loud and uncomfortable. Rooms were adequate. Balcony was nice, bathroom average, AC unit was... More

The hotel is close to the airport, just outside of the downtown area. Quite convenient, exspecially when arriving late at night. Little Italy, the Gaslamp district and the harbour are easy to reach on foot. The downside is the amount of noise from the highway and the aiport, if your room is facing to the north. Staff is friendly and... More

This hotel is perfectly located just a couple of blocks from Little Italy, home of some of the best food in San Diego! The hotel is comfortable with nice rooms & beds as well as a beautiful pool area to enjoy the sun. Staff is very welcoming and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting SD. It is...
