I just completed a 3 day stay at this Marriott property and found it to be one of the best I have stayed in. The staff went above and beyond to make sure not only our group had what we needed but I did as well. The hotel was beautifully renovated and the staff enthusiastically shared the history of the...

We just completed a 5-night group stay at the Courtyard by Marriott San Diego. From our very first interaction with John Parker from the Sales team to our very last goodbye to the Bell Staff, it was a pleasure to work with this hotel. The hotel staff is truly attentive and professional in every way. There are too many staff... More

My wife and I stayed here 3/20 and 3/21. The address is Broadway, but if you are valeting your car, you will have to come down 6th street. We drove from LA, and valeted our car. It is $40 a day to valet. This is A LOT. The building is an older building so it has ornate features throughout the... More

NIce hotel in a good location if you need to be in downtown San Diego or the Gaslamp District. The hotel is a converted old bank building and it works well. Nice lobby and bar area. No free coffee in the morning in the lobby but Starbucks available. Very clean, spacious and updated guest rooms. Only complaint is that parking... More

This is not your standard cookie-cutter hotel. From the ceiling in the lobby to the elevator doors, it appears they have kept as much of the original old bank styling and architecture as possible. The staff were very helpful and polite. The bar is very modern looking and a bit out of character with the rest of the hotel. A... More

I loved everything about this hotel. It was in the best location, the interior is amazing, old and charming, The rooms are very nice, up to date decor, very clean, (hard to get a good view but not much you can do, about that). The staff was wonderful. They do everything to make your stay awesome. It is in the... More

I have stayed at this Courtyard for multiple business trips. The staff is very easy to work with and the property is incredible. The old bank building has a very classic and upscale feel. The bar is a must stop for just a drink, or even for dinner! The breakfast options are absolutely great. This definitely isn't your typical hotel... More

Very nice hotel in the heart of downtown San Diego. The rooms are just big enough to sleep and work at the nice desk. I have a view of the back of another hotel so no comment on views which is a shame because I am up on the 10th floor. The traffic is terrible in San Diego but they... More

This hotel has a great location to enjoy San Diego's Gaslamp District. This means, tons of great restaurants. Also means lots of crazy and weird people at all times of day and night. This makes you appreciate the hotel, built originally as a bank: it really feels solid, safe, quiet and classy. Staff are also first class, including service: I... More

Stayed here for 3 nights at the end of a 5 week stay in California to get away from the winter. This is an excellent hotel at a great location, just 1 block from 5th Avenue and the Gaslamp district and with plenty of public transit on Broadway to get you anywhere you like to go. If you are going... More
