Stayed here for one week and it was great. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. They gave excellent recommendations for dinner spots. The building is an old bank building and it's grand and beautiful. Definitely check out the vault room in the lower lever...very cool. The gym has everything one needs to get some exercise in.

We came to SD for the Holiday bowl and wanted to be close to the action. We decided on this place because of the price but were more impressed upon our arrival. It's located to all the great spots in the Gaslamp district, shopping and very accessible to the freeway. The hotel is an old bank building which makes it... More

First off..."Thank you, Ryann!" Being greeted late at night after a long drive from Los Angeles by desk agent Ryann melted our exhaustion away. She is fabulous, sweet, knowledgeable and incredibly helpful. In fact, we didn't meet a single staff member we didn't like. That counts big when you're traveling. As for the hotel, here is our pro/con list. Pros:... More

This hotel is in a wonderful location in the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego. The staff at the hotel are very helpful and friendly.

We went to San Diego Thanksgiving 2014 for 6 days. The staff could not have been lovelier. My husband needs a wheelchair to get around. The hotel lent him a portable wheelchair and said he could use it for his entire stay - both inside and outside of the hotel. It helped our visit so much. When we arrived, the... More

Arrived back at 5.30 and was told they needed a bit more time as there was some confusion and they didn't have a room ready. It appeared... More

This Courtyard is in downtown near the Gaslight district and was very accessible to many downtown features. It is a very successful renovation of the former San Diego Trust Bank and has some of the old charm of traditional office buildings.
