Maya is right on the water within walking distance of the bridge that takes you right into the downtown and all the attractions, like the aquarium, restaurants, museums, etc. A bit pricy, but lots of amenities, like pool, restaurant and even a sand beach with fire pits at night to keep warm while watching the city lights sparkle on the water. There is a nice walkway that runs all the way to the Queen Mary, as well as the cruise ship terminal. Try breakfast on the outside patio watching the birds on the water as well as an occasional sea lion sunning himself on the nearby floating boat docks. Breakfast burrito is huge but will set you back $20.
Room comes with refrigerator and sliding glass door for easy access to the outside or a personal patio. Well insulated...even an all night action movie with helicopters, explosions and gunfire did not spoil our rest.
