We stayed at the Ridge in building E, Rm 3421. Our balcony overlooked the Marina, the Naval facility, the Grand Solmar construction entrance and the infamous barking dogs protecting the Land's End property. The two bedroom Presidential Suite was nicely appointed and the view of the Marina at night was nice. However, if you do not like walking and are a light sleeper, this is not the place for you. The clubs across the Marina boom electronic music until 5AM which is when the dogs start barking. We figured out that if we kept the AC on all night, we could overcome the partyfest with white noise. After that we were OK. We are runners and very fit, but the constant up and down to get to our unit from the lobby was even tiring for us. BIG TIP: The street door to the Marina from units D & E at the Ridge is open only from 12PM to 12AM. Keep your visists to downtown and the Marina and you can save a lot of hoofing. Outside of that, you walk all the way around. Adds 15 minutes. Also, if you are OK with a rock scramble and some beach hiking, you can get to Divorce Beach, Lovers Beach and El Arco from Solmar Beach. Also, if you rent a car, you can self park, you do not need to valet.
