Hubby, dog and I just stayed there for 3 nites. It is a lovely hotel in the Gaslamp District and an easy walk to the Convention Center and most of the places you wld want to visit in the GLD. But - the real eye opener was the outstanding staff. They knocked themselves out anytime they had an opportunity to interact with us. Everyone was warm, friendly and tried to go the extra mile if there was anything at all we needed. And, of course the bonus was that our little dog was treated as the princess she obviously is - right from her name on the welcome board to the offer of treats, a poofy hotel dog bed and a color co-ordinated bowl. While I hate to give a shout-out only to these people - it's simply because I can't remember everyone else's names. There so many kind people. So - a BIG thanks to Randall the superb bartender and Jennifer in housekeeping and of course valets/concierges Mike, Kyle and Trevor. You all made our stay in San Diego wonderful. We are now very loyal Kimpton folks. Go there and take your dog to this exceptional and dog-friendly hotel with the great staff Thank you all very much!!!!
