I took my family to see John Williams and the San Diego Symphony in Dec 2012. You do not exit the building to get to the concert hall which makes this arrangement very convenient and safe at night. The valet parking staff was friendly and efficient. I knew the price from previous reviews so no surprises there.
You go up the elevator to the lobby and the front desk person was friendly and helped us with some directions I needed to get to a restaurant we wanted to try. Then, another elevator ride up to the room. Our room was a king bed separated from a sofa bed for my kids, aged 8 and 10. The room was dated but clean and the door covering the small fridge was broken. This had zero impact on us.
The girls wanted to get into the pool, which was indoors. It is very small (not large enough to swim meaningful laps for exercise. Probably more useful for a nice dip on a hot day, however. There is a small hot tub and a fitness room. Again, all the facilities are not amazingly fabulous but they were functional and we found everything quite clean and uncluttered. I think smaller kids would have a good time splashing in the pool.
To get to the concert hall, we went down the elevator to the lobby and then walked past the restaurant/bar area to another set of elevators to the ground floor. The lobby and box office area were decorated with a huge Christmas tree. Very well done.
One of the nicest parts of the trip was after the concert was done, we were all tired, and our comfy beds were just a couple elevator rides away! Awesome. I would stay here again should another concert lure us to drive south from the Inland Empire to San Diego.
