Centrally located to great restaurants (so many of these), Metro lines, Trolleys, buses...and walking distances to convention center and marina, shops, and parks (small) but close to Balboa Park (a must visit attraction). Great value overall, but the room needs some upgrades (carpets and cabinets and TV/remote). Comfortable bed and clean bathroom and great view (if you have an upgraded room - SPG member). Valet parking can be a bit pricey ($40 per night) but drop off and pick up are swift. Give tips at the end of your staying (as I was told). Recommended restaurants: The Oceanaire Seafood (Oysters and Champagne), Chocolat Cremerie (Crepes), Mint Downtown Thai (great dinner deal)...Happy Travel !!!
