“Excellent Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

We spent the night here for an overnight in town and to attend the symphony. The staff was great, our room was very nice and the location downtown was outstanding. Walking distance to most everything downtown and a couple of blocks to Petco Park. Breakfast is included.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, some even going out of their way to help you and make your stay even better. And since i was attending a convention, the convention center was just within walking distance, and since the hotel was in the downtown area, the family can just go around and have lots of things to do while i was busy.

Okay so going to San Diego and spending $38.00 dollars to park seemed crazy but so worth it! The location of this hotel is perfect puts you right downtown not to mention the free breakfast in the morning. From the minute of getting out of the car to checking in they made you feel like you were the only one there. Cathy Schultz made is extra special making us feel like were VIP's! Her customer service was 125%. The entire experience was simply perfect. Thanks Cathy!!!!

Room Tip: Didn't get to see many but it was great.

This has to be one of the nicest Residence Inn properties that I have ever stayed in. Ideally located in the heart of the Gaslamp Quarter, this hotel is modern and comfortable. Like all Residence Inns we had a small kitchen, but who needs that with all the wonderful restaurants within walking distance. Breakfast was included in our rate and it was a really nice spread of food with the usual buffet standards of cereal, bagels and fruit, but also included make your own waffles, and hot breakfast items. For those wanting to maintain their fitness routines there is a small fitness center upstairs adjacent to the pool. Although I did not use the pool, it is small and doesn't appear to get a great deal of sun. But San Diego has great beaches instead.
My only minor complaints were that there was no in-room safe and the parking through the hotel is expensive - $38 night. There are plenty of self- park lots nearby, but they don't have the in and out privileges that the hotel valet had.
If I found my self in downtown San Diego in the future, I would definitely consider staying here again.

I just spent the last week here on vacation with my husband and one year old daughter. The location was nice to be able to walk around and get a bite to eat but terrible when it came to wanting some peace and quiet at night. All weekend long there were people hollering and sirens outside our window well into the early morning.

We stayed in the one bedroom suite which was nice to be able to close the door at night with the baby but the layout was awkward and uncomfortable. The room was very tight with our small family and there was nowhere to hang out and relax. On top of that the bed and pillows were hard and miserable.

The highlights were the free breakfast and the great valet service (although you get what you pay for at $40 a day). The pool is extremely small at only 3 feet deep and a maximum of 11 people at a time. The pictures are extremely deceiving.

The last night we were there, there was a fire at midnight in the kitchen. We had to evacuate at midnight with our baby down ten flights of stairs. When we wanted to talk to someone at checkout the next day about being reimbursed for part of our stay that night, there was apparently nobody that could handle it. We were sent on a wild goose chase trying to get in touch with a manager and are still waiting for someone to call us back after multiple voicemails left with 2 separate managers.

I think it’s a great hotel if you are looking to party downtown after a baseball game but if you are traveling with your family I would suggest looking elsewhere. I do not find this hotel to live up to the Marriott name unfortunately.
