We knew refurbishment was ongoing but we were very disappointed to learn on our evening arrival that the pool would be closed for the entire duration (7 nights) of our stay, however the hotel had arranged for membership of a nearby fitness centre (including pool) for us, which we frequented on a few occasions and it was a lovely spot. We stayed on the 3rd floor which had been completely refurbished and was lovely. The room was very modern and comfortable.As the kitchen was being refurbished breakfasts were grab and go but we did actually enjoy bringing it to our rooms to enjoy in comfort and our daughters in their pyjamas!! The Managers evening receptions were takeaways but again they were lovely and went down well with a few beers/wines! The staff were a joy from start to finish and could not have done more to make our stay in San Diego a memorable one even tho we did get off to a bad start. Well done to them all during this difficult time of renovation and we look forward to returning to see the finished job!!
