Even though we are a bit picky about hotels, we stayed here for the weekend strictly based on location as wanted to be near family living in area. Just about everything was better than we expected. The staff at front desk was exceptionally nice at check in. Our room was very spacious; really clean with an extremely comfortable king bed. We had a room with a patio and two chairs facing the city and San Diego Bay. The bathroom was modern and all the linens and toiletries were of very good quality. Also, the climate control in the room was perfect as we were there for the freezing cold snap and needed lots of heat. The free breakfast was a bonus. It was held in the bar and restaurant area where the view of the marina was really lovely. We also had a light snack in the evening and were surprised by the quality of the service, food and fair prices. It was too cold to use pool and Jacuzzi area but it was on a nice deck overlooking the marina with many lounge chairs. The only two negatives were minor. 1) We were charged $5 per day to park... but I do admit the parking here seemed convenient and safe as they had a parking garage under the hotel with elevator right to room. And 2) the bowls used at breakfast for the hot oatmeal were old worn out wooden salad bowls. I mentioned to the server that the breakfast was so nicely presented with that one exception and he said they knew this and were working on replacing the bowls. We would stay here again.
