Usually when we go to San Diego in April we stay at a high rise resort hotel. This time we chose to be downtown and it was a perfect location for a week. We arrived from Los Angeles on the train and a quick cab to the hotel. Pleasant check in and always informative information from the front desk (Brian in particular is a stellar customer service rep) and the bellman station. We used travel points but when our daughter decided to meet us and stay for 2 nights, we found the hotel rate was 1/2 the price we paid for an identical room, which is to advise people to check with hotel to see if you can get a better last minute rate. Loved the location as close to transportation, great food, shopping. We borrowed bikes and went to Seaport Village early one morning. They have a terrific yoga room and I bought a $5 DVD to do at home. This is something that wish all hotels would incorporate into their rec facilities as I do yoga 6 times a week and its hard to continue on holidays.
One of two elevators was broken for our stay which was fine on the way down but inconvenient wait with parcels for the way up. Nice restaurants and cafes right around the street. We rented a car and thanks to the bellman it was great service and we just returned to another hotel - meant not paying extra airport surcharges. We will certainly stay at The Sophia again - friendly staff, clean and a convenient location. Not 4 stars? Something amiss - couldn't put my finger on it but just the slightest thing that would have made it 5 so really 4 and a half.
