I stayed here with my boyfriend for 2 nights in September 2013.
Accomodations - Great room with a king-sized bed and a nice bathroom. Everything was very clean.
Staff - The staff was very nice. The lady at the front desk was very helpful with answering all of our questions. Housekeeping left us a nice note telling us to enjoy San Diego.
Parking - There is a parking deck for guests. It's a bit pricey, but that seems to be the general trend in all of California.
Location - Although the hotel is very nice, I wish it was in Gaslamp. It was about a 15 minute walk to get from the hotel to Gaslamp. But this hotel was a lot nicer than the Ramada, which is right in the heart of Gaslamp. So I guess it just depends what is more important, quality or location.
Complimentary Breakfast - It was average at best. I had orange juice and a bagel with cream cheese.
Other - The cookies at the front desk are really good. I thought that was a really nice thing to offer for guests. Also, I didn't see this advertised anywhere on the website, but the hotel offers a happy hour with complimentary drinks. Free beer is always a nice treat!
Overall, I was very happy during my stay. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
