Our family of six stayed in two connecting rooms over a long Labor Day weekend. The first night we stayed in garden view rooms, which were ok, but upon my asking at check in they said we could move up to bay view our second night, and they would move our bags for us while we were out! Even though it was a minor inconvenience to pack up after the first night, the payoff was priceless, as we were moved over to rooms facing the Bay Bridge and on the end of the building.
The concierge was right on with his recommendations, steering us towards a great family restaurant that was within walking distance and not overly expensive. Also, grabbing takeout and eating dinner with the family on the patio (despite not having enough chairs) was unforgettable. My oldest daughter also enjoyed drawing what she saw at night from the patio after the younger kids went to bed. The resort had a wonderful location on a walking path that lined San Diego. Finally, the pool was good for the kids and not very deep. It was not crowded in the early mornings around 9 AM.
The rooms were a little smaller than I would have liked. I would have preferred some more practicality, such as larger refrigerators and more chairs on the patios. Also, the first night they did not have the crib I requested ready on arrival, although someone came and set it up for us within 15 minutes of my calling. I thought the $22 per night parking was egregious, but I didn't really have a choice.
While it was a great location, if I could find a comparable family-friendly hotel in the San Diego downtown, Mission Bay or Coronado Island with larger rooms, I would probably stay there.
