The hotel was nice, nice area, nice rooms, very clean, but I wished the customer service was better. Veronica was checking us in, and she didn't make us feel welcomed at all, pretty rude attitude and it just seemed like if she wasn't happy, if you hate your job so much then maybe hospitality it's just not for her, I...

I've stayed here a few times to make my frequent visits to San Diego a little more festive. This hotel is adjacent to the Gaslamp Quarter of downtown, within 5 minutes walking distance to dozens of trendy restaurants, bars, as well as the downtown mall called Horton Plaza which also has cinemas. A block away are the blue & orange... More

It was a great get-away. The staff was courteous and respectful. The rooms were clean. We had an amazing view of the ocean. We didn't know the area that well but the staff was helpful. They directed us to the boardwalk. Just a short walk to Sea Port Village. The people were friendly. We did have an issue where we... More

We found this hotel mostly disappointing in terms of quality/price range. We arrived around 9 pm and the young and nice girl at the reception had to carry our luggage by herself .We were expecting a bellboy knocking at our door.. We weren't expecting that from a Marriott. She's been really nice and professional as the bartender and most of... More

This hotel used to be an old bank, which gives it lots of character and interesting features inside. Perfect location for the Gaslamp Quarter and a good base to explore the city from. Rooms are a good size; very comfy and loads of light making it easy to forget you're right in the middle of the city. Would definitely stay... More

This is a really great hotel! It's an old bank that was constructed into a hotel and as a result it's the best Courtyard I have stayed at in terms of decor. The service is great. I misplaced my camera and the staff went above and beyond trying to assist me in relocating it which I thankfully did. Take a... More

Housed in a 1920's historic landmark building, the reinvented Courtyard San Diego Downtown welcomes guests with the sophisticated comfort of modern accommodations, while embracing the character of the distinguished former financial institution. From the moment you step through the revolving front doors, you will be whisked away to an inviting and intimate space to unwind, gather your thoughts, or share a laugh and a beverage with friends. Exquisite remnants of the former bank grace the interior of our hotel and mix with a fresh, contemporary style. Whether you are here for business or pleasure, you can expect impeccable service and an unbeatable location in the Gaslamp Quarter; offering hundreds of dining and entertainment options. We are conveniently located in the heart of the business district, walking distance to the waterfront and San Diego Convention Center, and minutes away from the San Diego International Airport and the world-famous San Diego Zoo. We are also just steps away from the San Diego Trolley which connects Downtown to Mission Valley, Chula Vista, and the International Border. Reinvented with fresh decor and design, our guest rooms and suites provide superior accommodations for individual travelers, business groups, event groups and families. Each of our rooms offers luxury bedding, free high-speed Internet and microwaves, refrigerators and safes in every room.
