This hotel is huge and typically hosts many large conferences at one time. It is very beautiful and in an excellent location for exploring the sights of San Diego. The rates can be high for this reason and because the hotel is modern in all designs. Despite the high rise design you'll never wait for an elevator. The rooms are standard size with many conveniences. The best part of the experience is the staff and the incredible focus they have on customer service during your stay. Everyone I encountered was polite, considerate and willing to help with anything. That makes this property worth the price. Location, modern design and professional, customer-service orentied staff all combine to ensure a great experience.
