I went during 4th of July weekend. The suite I book had a pull out sofa bed that was a nightmare. There were so many springs in the matress my son could not sleep on it. When they brought in the roll away bed it was just as bad. Sergio the supervior recognized the problem and prompty gave us a... More

Marriott with its countless brands and massive corporate apparatus did not deliver a diluted experience here. Looking for a pleasant stay for my family with a convenient gaslamp district location, this courtyard was perfection. The building itself has that downtown charming character. The contemporary interior coupled with the "historic feel" permeated the lobby in every corner - from the chic... More

This hotel is huge and it's great. The bar was really quite nice. The staff was really friendly and they make a mean martini. The rooms were large and the king bed was very comfortable. Everything you expect from a Marriott. The rigshaw ride to downtown was too much money but fun. Negotiate your fee before you get in for... More

This hotel is in an excellent location just steps from the Gas Lamp District that offers dining and entertainment as also a couple of blocks from Horton Plaza if you want an outdoor mall type atmosphere. The best part is the restored glamor of walking into the lobby with amazing high ceilings they have preserved some of the old historic... More

We were looking for a downtown hotel for our visit and this hotel fit the bill...on 6th Ave/Broadway and just on the edge of the Gas Lamp District and close to the waterfront. Good spot to walk to almost anything downtown. Hotel is in a beautiful renovated bank building and we found it comfortable. Some minor negatives; we were using... More

The hotel staff are very friendly and nice! They took us to visit the old safe and provide a nice tour of this historical hotel. The lobby is the most amazing - feel like we stay in a museum! Room is clean and nice. Parking is very expensive though.

This hotel is in a historic bank building. It is gorgeous. The rooms are very good size and very comfortable. They have kept so many of the original features. It went through a renovation in 2013. The bar in the lobby is a quiet respite from the surrounding area and Josh the bartender hooked us up with some late night... More

I choose the King size bed with bay view room and it was AWESOME!!. Perfect view of the bay and Coronado bridge & Island, Also you see Petco Park. It was overall a great experience staying at this hotel. The room was very nice size, front desk staff were all professional and attentive. Valet service was fast and easy.

I stayed 4 nights in this hotel, and they were all great nights. The location is just perfect! You can reach all the famous spots walking, no taxi necessary. Great restaurants, good mall and the coast/beach is 5 blocks from hotel. Breakfast is good, ordered from menu. Parking a car is too expensive (USD 38/day).

The lobby of this old bank turned into a hotel is superb. The last time I saw hand-painted ceilings like this was in a old monastery of Spanish brothers! The staff are equally impressive -- my husband and I particularly liked Ramon in the Lobby Bar. The rooms can't quite compare, but are comfortable and spotless.
