“Loved it”

We loved our water view. The aviary was fun. The hotel was walking distance to many things. Stayed a week and wad very comfortable. Can't wait to return. Food was good - beds comfortable. Lovely views.

Located on Coronado, so you have to take a taxi (expensive) or the water shuttle (less expensive) over to downtown or the Gaslamp. Good sized rooms, with balconies. Nice sized baths with a deep soaking tub. Small fridge. Stayed in a standard room but saw one of the villas, which is a very nice upgrade.

Room Tip: Water views are best, without question.

This was a girls trip, the rooms were large with two double beds and a pull out.... worked perfect for sleeping arrangements. We had plenty of room for our "own space" and the bathroom was quite large and lovely. Shower and seperate tub and large vanity. All of the amenities needed makeup mirror, hairdryer, etc. The patio was lovely and private with a table and two chairs. The property is pretty and comfortable! Tony the driver is available at anytime for flat fees $10 across the island or $20 to the airport - very nice twon car and he's quite the talker! The lobby bar is pretty quiet - the bartender will place drinks in-front of you even if you have not asked for another - so beware! This was disappointing to us. The resort was full of kids which means the pool had lots of kids running about and screams... btu that is what pools are for I guess. The bar at the pool was good, had TV's with sports games playing and a full menu. Service other than walking to the bar yourself needs some attention. There are many ducks on property and we did have the pool closed for about an hour ... not the hotels fault but you'd think they'd run lines to detur the birds. Breakfast was AMAZING! VERY GOOD! There are other great restaurants and shops just down the board walk within a mile or less. Beautiful walkway, scenic!

Room Tip: Requesting a room with a view of the bay won't be a regret!!! The view of San Diego and the Nav...

Stayed 3 nights at this property. I stayed here about 3-4 years ago and the property has vastly improved.
This time I was placed in a "villa" #410. I really liked the villa, it a was large unit with a living/dining area and a small galley "kitchen" area (no stove -just microwave). The unit included a large bathroom, with a separate jetted tub and a separate shower stall. My favorite feature was the large sliding glass doors that opened from the bed/living area onto a "private terrace". This terrace was flanked by a man-made pond water feature, the sound of the fountain was relaxing. I liked leaving the doors open with the sheers drawn. There are ducks, the ducks are cute but are always looking for some food from you and if they like your terrace they'll leave droppings... Thankfully they didn't like mine. I did a panorama photo of the room to show how big it is -not sure that I really did that but I'll upload it anyway. The villas are a short walk to the hotel lobby and fitness center. The fitness center has plenty of machines but seems to always be busy. My first day I went over at 5:55am and 2 of the 4 cross trainers were already in use. The restaurant/bar was very good -pricey of course -but good. I recommend the bloody mary -esp. if you like them spicy. For breakfast they make a broken yoke sandwich -really good. Location-wise we liked it here. The water taxi is super convenient to the gas lamp district. We took the water taxi over to the Marriott Marquis - getting through the Marquee was a little confusing . Gas lamp area is great, a lot of fun.
Parking at this property is Ok, a bit expensive and a little inconvenient but ok.
We had a little trouble checking out but it all worked out. Check in and food service were all very good.

Room Tip: If you can get a villa, get an end one, I had 410 and my colleague had 408 the middle villas are roo...

If you like a hotel that has great views and is on the water, this hotel is for you. Outstanding view of the San Diego skyline. Rooms are nice and clean. The only negative I had is with the condition of the stairwells. I tend to take the stairs instead of waiting for elevators. The stairwells were disgusting. Marks on the walls and major stains on the carpeting. Certainly not up to Marriott's standards.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of San Diego Bay.

The location is lovely. Our room overlooked the pool area which would have been nice, except for the large tacky sign announcing the pool side bar. Our room was comfortable but tired, the furniture showing the odd nick and scrape. It was also very noisy. I think the open nature of the hallways and the construction of them is an unfortunate combination. I don't expect WiFi and parking charges at a hotel in this price range. The restaurant menu was disappointing - very little variety.
The public areas were very nice. The service was excellent.

One of the most welcoming greetings from a Hotel, we have ever received. We arrived early and a room was available, we had booked a corner suite. We went to our room only to discover that our view was obstructed by Palm Trees, so we went back and asked to change. We were given a room on the South Wing and this time the view of San Diego City was beautiful. The Marriot have a private boat that takes you accross the bay for $US6 and it only takes 15 minutes and was a lovely ride. Shops and nice restaurants are a 10-15 minute walk away. Bike hire is available also. The Island is very clean and has some beautiful beaches and it's easy to walk or ride around it. They have a lovely lagoons throughout the hotel and a large swimming pool. It is also family friendly. This hotel was very relaxing.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing San Diego city, it's beautiful lit up at night.
