My family stayed 5 nights at this hotel. The best thing about it were the people. All staff was friendly, courteous, and helpful. Especially Mariana at the front desk. She went out of her way to make our stay better. The hotel deserves four stars because of the staff. One of the reasons I didn't give it a five star... More

I attended a conference at the San Diego Convention Center and my booking was made by someone else so I wasn't sure what to expect. I was pleased to find a comfortable, well-appointed mini-suite with a view of the downtown and a peek at the harbor. Although I didn't really avail myself of the kitchenette other than to reheat things... More

This is your quintessential Residence Inn. Larger rooms, good amenities, and a nice place to spend an extended stay - the bed was especially comfy. We had no problems while staying here and prefer this location to the gas lamp location as a family because we can quickly get to the beaches, to Balboa Park, or quickly on to the... More

The Residence Inn got alot of things right when planning their suite rooms. There is ample size in the rooms- to stretch out & not feel cramped. The location is convenient to the Civic Ctr. & the Airport, & a reasonably short ride to downtown SD areas. The carpets and accent wall paint, add some homey touches to the rooms.... More

Just finished off a 5 night stay here in a lg studio overlooking Pacific Highway out on to the new Waterfront Park across the street, and the bay and all it holds beyond. First, the room. It was spacious, clean and comfortable. We used the kitchen to prepare 3 dinners there, and the fridge (full size) came in handy to... More

Nice hotel with attentive staff. Rooms are spacious and clean. Bed isn't very comfortable and when there were children above us, it was quite loud. Pool area, happy hour and breakfasts are great and they make this an affordable stay. Airport shuttle was prompt and location was convenient to most attractions. There was always an Uber driver right around the... More

The Hotel and rooms were clean and comfortable! The staff was excellent in communicating and helping us with anything we needed! I called to inquire about an ice machine and within 5 minutes a gentleman was at my door with a bag of ice. There was a Free breakfast in the lobby from 6-9 am. and Free wine, beer and... More

We stayed here recently and were impressed with the proximity to downtown (used the trolley stop nearby), Little Italy (delicious restaurants), and the waterfront attractions. We enjoyed walking to the Mercato (Farmer's Market in Little Italy) on Saturday morning too. The rooms were clean and what you would expect with Marriott. We were on the 4th floor and it was...

Mariana in the front desk was really helpful, also was Carlos. They were always aware of the things I need. All staff is very friendly and commodities are very good. Location is the best!. They offer free 3 mile radius shuttle.

I stayed at this hotel during a seminar that was taking place at a much more expensive hotel about a mile away. While this hotel is a decent walk from the gaslamp district (maybe 20 minutes), it more than makes up for it with its awesome shuttle service. I've been at many hotels that claim to offer shuttle service, but... More
