We arrived in San diego for a birthday celebration on Saturday evening just in time for free happy hour in the lounge. It was great everyone gathered in chairs and couches and just socialized with one another. We met travelers from Arizona and Boston, it was a really nice touch. The staff is wonderful and the hotel is very clean. I love the unique decorations and style of the rooms-very comfortable. It was walk-able to some great restaurants and shops. The pool bar on the 4th floor has a fun laid back vibe to it. My only recommendation for the hotel would be to put an extra blanket in the closet. We hit San Diego on a chilly night and the light down comforter did not cut it. I ended up using the awesome hotel robe as a blanket. My Husband thought I was crazy, but it worked for me. Enjoy your stay! Oh one more heads up it does cost $40 to park overnight at the hotel, so add that to your budget or use your AAA card for a discount on parking.
