We're locals who like to stay overnight in downtown after a Padres game at least once a season. We stayed here last year. This Residence Inn meets our needs. They offer AAA rate, free breakfast and free wifi. We stayed in a one-bedroom suite with a city view. The room was nice and clean. For a family of five, the room size was adequate because we only stayed one night. It has a queen bed, two TVs and sofabed. The walk to Petco Park isn't far. Many good restaurants in the area.
We paid for valet parking because we're lazy to find cheaper parking and tow our luggage and stuff. Yes, it is expensive at $38, but the service was quick and painless.
The staff is nice and upbeat. We checked in early and our room was ready. It was nice to get settled into a room before the game started.
We'll likely return, but we'll look for cheaper parking elsewhere.
