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

Typical Marriott hospitality but be forewarned, this hotel sits right on the railroad tracks and they seem to run all night long. Way too noisy for the price and also very limited parking that they get a premium for.

I would have to say it here, this was one of the BEST hotel stays EVER in Downtown San Diego. My friend and "Yours Truly" took Amtrak "Surfliner" from Anaheim to SD - as we approached "Santa Fe Depot" I phoned in for the hotel shuttle. Once we arrived at the train station, we waited only ten mins and "Danny"... More

Overall experience was positive. Location is great - right along the bay on Pacific Highway very close to the airport and many restaurants. Staff were very friendly and 3 nights a week there is a mangaers reception with free food and drinks. Breakfast was also well laid out for the price of the hotel. The key is to make sure... More

We would stay again at this hotel. The staff were friendly. The room was spacious for a couple.Very clean. Breakfast was included in a spacious serve yourself area.. Several hot and cold items to choose from. Good restaurants and transportation close by. One suggestion, have some type of screen beside sink since i like to brush teeth in private.

I stayed at the Residence Inn Downtown and was very happy with my decision. I didn't have a car, but didn't need one with the hotel providing a free shuttle in a 3 mile radius of the hotel. They picked me up at the hotel after my flight landed (you have to wait until you land to call) and I... More

This is such a great location, I'll always stay here when visiting San Diego. I love downtown San Diego, and this hotel is probably the best location of all! It's on the Pacific Coast Highway, with only a grassy park area in front of it, then Harbor Drive and the Staf of India and Maritime Museum. The hotel is a... More

My wife had a conference at the San Diego convention centre, but we wanted to avoid the high-priced alternatives and all the traffic and congestion of a hotel right in the convention area. What we thought was a compromise in this hotel was a pleasant surprise - competitive pricing (almost half of comparables right at the convention centre), good location... More

This property is close to the downtown and the harbor. A room on the front will provide a good view of the San Diego Harbor. It is an easy walk to the downtown area and the harbor. The staff is excellent at providing information and assistance. There is free parking at the hotel and there is a good free breakfast.
