Stayed here for four nights in April, really based on TripAdvisor reviews, and pleased I did. Great location right in the centre of San Diego, walkable to all the restaurants and bars of the GasLamp and the waterfront. Room was great - fab decor - and the whole hotel had a great hip vibe. Loved the wine hour. Best of all was the pool deck and bar - great views, plenty of space, nice sized pool. Staff were universally pleasant and efficient. Wouldn't hesitate to go back. Only one little thing - we checked in really late (1am) due to a delayed flight from the UK and we had breakfast included in our rate but no one told us on check in we needed to collect vouchers. This caused a little confusion in the restaurant the next day - so if you have breakfast included, make sure you pick them up. The continental breakfast was excellent by the way. Other people have mentioned noise, but we had a room overlooking the busy pool bar, but with the windows closed we couldn't hear a thing. Not cheap,but worth it in our opinion.
