Do not even think about it, do not book a room here.
I booked this hotel thru one of the online travel sites, it was listed as a great deal. And I felt it was a great deal since it is located in Downtown San Diego, in the Gas lamp district. So great location, great rate...it could not be that good to be true. The hotel is not what it shows in the photos, bathrooms are not in every room, security is non-existent and appears as if the location is a focal point for transients looking for trouble.
My wife and her friend attending a funeral were to use the hotel, once I learned of the problems immediately called the Westin and got a room there. And the difference in cost was only about $70
