i stayed at the Residence Inn Downtown in March 2015 for a convention. This is a very nice hotel with a great location. It is close walking distance to the USS Midway and other museums on the harbor. The bay cruises are close as well. Little Italy is close enough to walk to as well. Waterfront Park is literally right... More

When I pulled up to the hotel, I was a little worried about what the inside might be like. So the room was a pleasant surprise and the bed was a real treat! Extremely comfortable! Noe bad location - close to the airport, nearby gas station, little italy, the pier, etc.

Stayed 6 nights in a suit for a family fun in San Diego. GOOD: 1. Great location: walk distance to the shore, USS Midway, Little Italy restaurants; shuttles take visitors to any location within a few miles. 2. The shuttles are very convenient and saved us a lot of money. They cover the main areas of interest (excluded Sea World... More

Our first night was not good, but things improved. We were very tired upon our arrival and looked forward to a good sleep. We didn't realize we booked a hotel beside the train tracks and so close to the airport. City sounds are understandable, and the location and room size (2 bedrooms) were huge selling features. There was a loud... More

We stayed here for 2 nights around Christmas last year. Absolutely loved the location of this property. We stayed in a corner room on the top floor overlooking the marina and a nice view of airplanes landing at the airport to boot. Train noise was a non-issue. Just waking up in the morning and looking at the marina/blue water was... More

5 of us stayed in a 2 bedroom suite room 333. The suite was immaculate and smelled fresh. The railroad tracks were right out our window but it did not bother any of us. We heard them maybe once or twice. The staff was phenomenal. They couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. The breakfast and evening reception were very... More

I got a room overlooking the pool. The train was a bit noisy if the window was open but otherwise great. The location is near everything, The hotel has a van and driver, if its 3 miles radius they will take you and will come pick you up. I took advantage of this and it worked out really nice plus...
