Since I was working and my wife would be hanging out during the day I requested a nice view at check in. We were given a corner room with water view on the 11th floor. The hotel is beautiful and well staffed. To me it seems like the upscale hotels usually have uptight employees. That was definitely not the case... More

What a truly stunning hotel. An old bank changed into a hotel and so beautifully decorated. An amazing diner 5 minute walk from hotel. Best area for restaurants so lively and such a vibrant city. I never thought San Diego would appeal to me but I now want to go back for at least a week! Room extremely comfortable, we... More

First of all, I love well preserved historic buildings and the Marriott has done an excellent job maintaining the feel of the old bank while converting it to a hotel. Unfortunately, we were placed in the worst possible room. I travel extensively, and this was the worst night I have ever had staying at a hotel. Through my husband's employer,... More

JSBear, Thank you for your review. I apologize that you were unhappy with your room choice. Although our location is convenient to the best restaurants, night life, and local attractions of San Diego, we are in the center of the busy downtown area. With the historic aspect of our building, our room options are limited. However, we do our best... More

I spent three days at this wonderful hotel and cannot say enough about the staff, the wonderful rooms, the beautiful lobby and the excellent location. The lobby is decorated beautifully for Christmas and the Starbucks coffee "bar" is right there. Thanks to the great staff, my stay made me feel right at home.

I've spent many nights here on business trips over the last couple years. I've also brought my girlfriend fere for weekend getaways. Great location, nice rooms and staff. Go to the basement and see how the old bank vaults have been changed into conference rooms. Pretty cool!

Stayed here for along weekend in San Diego. Loved the look of the lobby and the old vault turned into a meeting room. Rooms were small, but well-appointed. Location is great for tourist attractions and most major attractions. Didn't have a car, but be prepared if you do - parking is expensive!

Just returned from a stay at this hotel over the weekend. I was very pleased with everything - I loved the history of the building...tons of character. The staff were very, very nice and super helpful. The rooms were comfy and quiet. We did not have a view, but that was no biggie since we weren't in the room much... More

This is not your average Courtyard. First of all, it is in a refurbished bank building, retaining a lot of the architechtual features so that alone makes it unique. We stayed for two nights before a cruise and had some time to explore San Diego. The staff were really who made they stay special for us. Ryann's dining / drink... More

We stayed here for 4 nights. Staff were very accommodating and helpful. Food was delicious, rooms were really nice and location was close to shopping and the trolley service so was very convenient for us. Don't have a single bad thing to say about our stay. We will be back. p.s the vault is amazing, you have to ask to... More
