First of all, I booked this room through Priceline. Price was $105/night. If I had to pay double, or more, I would have rated the hotel a bit lower-- probably down to neutral/average.
The Gaslamp area is expensive! I hear a lot of people whining about parking fees. Thats everywhere! If you want to save $10, then park at a private parking lot a couple blocks from your Gaslamp hotel and walk. Parking is expensive there. End of story.
Hotels in this area are pricey. I know this hotel is usually about $200+/-. For this type of hotel (avg/above avg), this is the price. If you want to spend less, then you are going to get less. Again, the area is pricey!
Now onto the hotel:
Pro's: Clean, modern rooms. Avg size (400 sq ft +/-), newer, nice bathroom (above avg), nice shower head, and comfortable beds. Pillow top mattress. Nice pillows. Not your typical disposable bed. Down comforter. Small but useful desk and comfy chair for working, or whatever. 23-27in tube TV. Typical. Overall, nice. Above avg. Room service is quick (25min) and food was above avg. Staff is very friendly.
Con's: Again, prefacing this because people tend to find the slightest things to complain about. You are in the Gaslamp district. There is traffic on the streets at ALL hours. Very busy, happening place. You MIGHT hear something at night. Like, cars, horns, music, etc. The walls are not pure lead. Not soundproof. And it is very minimal. And this is IF you happen to hear something. Saturday morning I did hear a train's whistle. This is mentioned in the other reviews. Lasted about 21 seconds. I got over it. Not the end of the world.
Just my $.02
