This hotel provided a great location to the bay area. We were new to visiting San Diego and this location was excellent! It's in the downtown area. We traveled with our kids and the hotel is in a safe area. Very close driving distance to the Zoo, Balboa Park, Sea World, Mission Beach and Old town San Diego. The room was nice and clean. The breakfast buffet was delicious! It included tasty hot dishes, eggs, ham, cereals, breads, fruit, etc. The front desk staff was very helpful and courteous. Check-in and check-out was great and smooth. The staff manning the breakfast was extremely nice, and helpful to provide driving directions or tourist attraction suggestions. Would definitely stay there again!
