Being a San Diego native and also being in real estate I have seen and been to most every hotel in San Diego. I personally go to this hotel lobby and rooftop twice a month if not more. This is my favorite hotel with a view. The staff Ivan, Chi and Lacey (the main employees that I have personally been helped by upstairs) are of top quality. Always attentive and friendly never a bad experience.
Oh and obviously the food is great too =)
