My family of 5 recently stayed here and loved every minute of our stay! We got two adjoining rooms for added space, but the rooms were a good size, modern, gorgeous decor and huge bathrooms! Views were awesome! We all loved the pool, hot tubs and the kids enjoyed the games area. The pool attendants were excellent and even remembered our names the next day which was a nice touch. The pool deck at night time was a lot of fun - they were showing kids movies the night we arrived and even had beds set up to snuggle in! And making s'mores at the fire pit is a must! The location of this hotel is great - close to the seaport village, USS Midway, Gaslamp and Convention Center. We had breakfast at Lael's twice and can honestly say it is probably one of the best breakfast buffets we have ever had. So much to choose from - waffle bar, omelette station, eggs, bacon etc, cereals, breads, muffins...even freshly squeezed watermelon juice! Very yummy! The one thing that we noticed was that access from the main lobby to the pool deck and all the room floors was not restricted by key card, so essentially anyone could wander around. This was surprising given the high level of security experienced in other hotels and the fact that this is a major hotel in SD. Could be concerning for guest and employee safety (especially housekeeping staff). Despite this, we would definitely stay here again and cannot wait to plan our next trip!
