The views from Altitude, their rooftop bar, down into Petco Park will make baseball fans out of sworn nonbelievers. Not to mention the same bar views cover SD-Coronado bridge, the naval station, SD Bay, even parts of Mexico. The staff, particular Carlos the front desk supervisor, genuinely care. The hotel can get kind of overrun with clubbers in the evening, but its got such a cool old world hotel vibe and for the most part the staff appreciate the clubbers are too much for regular guests and try to make everyone happy. The building is older, so the piping and toilets, etc., are loud and constantly in the walls. Normally this would mean I'd score them a 3, but the vibe is so good, the staff helpful, the location insanely cool, and the rooms clean, that it needs a 5. Thanks Carlos!
