My friend and I stayed here for four nights to attend a conference being held at the convention center. Our organization had arranged for buses to run to/from the hotel but we found the 0.7 mile walk to be very manageable and enjoyable given the beautiful weather. The complimentary breakfast was very convenient and had a good variety of hot and cold items, juices and caffeine. The evening reception is nice as well with nice crudite, chips/dips and drinks.
The room was spacious with a nicely sized living room and bedroom. The bathroom showed some signs of age with dirty caulking and peeling paint. On our second evening, the air conditioner stopped working and we had to call for maintenance at 11 pm. I was a bit put off by the maintenance man who dismissed us and said it should be working since it was a new unit. 45 minutes later he emerged from the bathroom saying the compressor coils were just dirty and now the ac should be working.
By far, the best aspect of this hotel is it's location. It is across the street from the USS Midway and Seaport Villlage. There is a lovely open air shopping center across the street with several restaurants so that you don't have to eat at the hotel's restaurant. The Old Town Trolley can be picked up across the street and offers a great way to see the major sights of the city. Also, the ferry to Coronado Island is an easy walk from the hotel.
We rented a car for a day to tour the coast. Unfortunately, valet parking at the hotel cost more than the cost of the car rental. Overall though, the hotel was a good value given the location.
