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

XLNT front desk customer service from Michelle, supported by Megan and Carlos. I received important logistics help between this RI and another San Diego RI (Rancho Bernardo / Carmel Mountain Road) from Shirley & Theresa. Appreciated!!

We arrived early (11 am) and were given a choice of which floor we preferred. Our quarters were comfortable and convenient. The complementary breakfast was served on regular plates (unlike the previous RI in Denver). We were walking distance to many sites. We also took the shuttle which was always courteous.

We cannot begin to describe how positive the experience was staying at this wonderful location. Once we arrived at the airport a quick call linked us up with a friendly driver for a free trip to the hotel. The staff from check in to check out were ALL courteous, pleasant, smiling, and helpful. The room was spacious, super clean, and... More

We were recently transferred from Washington DC to San Diego. We stayed in the Residence Inn Downtown until our permanent residence became available. In all we stayed here for 90 days. So what is so fantastic out this location? What isn't? The location is perfect for work and play. Located on the periphery of Little Italy it was walking distance... More

Wow, are we impressed! Having flown from overseas, with very fluid plans, we were thankful for the easy online reservation process, as well as the pleasant and professional manner in which we were received at the Residence Inn San Diego Downtown. After flying into North Island NAS and calling Marriott directly, we discovered that the best possible mode of transport... More

Finishing up a business and leisure trip in San Diego. Staying at the Residence Inn Downtown has been a great decision. The location simply cannot be beat. No need for a car you can walk to most location in the downtown area or take the trolley (1.5 blocks to station). Plus they have a free shuttle that takes you anywhere... More

We had a priceline.com reservation at the Days Inn a few doors over, they booked us in a God awful smoking room (room 119) not only were we NOT smokers, I had a sinus and ear infection. Days Inn was unable to change our room and told us to come back several hours later to speak to the manager regarding... More

Hotel is fairly central. It is a little old but the rooms are clean and a nice size. What we did like was that there was a shuttle which took us to where we wanted to go at a time that suited us and they just needed a phone call and came to collect us. I guess this also depends... More

This was my first visit to San Diego and during my month long stay I grew to find that the location of the hotel is fantastic. It is easily within walking distance of the waterfront and many restaurants of Little Italy. Points of interest a little beyond walking distance are easy to get to with the available shuttle service the... More
