Really cool vintage downtown hotel - old but excellently restored with modern amenities and lots of charm. Reasonably priced with clean, comfortable rooms. Excellent location - easy walking distance to gaslamp district, waterfront, & Petco Park. Was very happy with it and would definitely stay there again.
Hotel offers a breakfast buffet for $12, but I would skip it. It was OK but not great and there are several better places within easy walking distance.
Note that the only parking option (other than city lots) is valet at $30/day, which I think is high, but not really that out of line for downtown San Diego. This is not well stated on their website - I had to hunt around for it. I find that a little annoying as I think hotels should prominently list all their ancillary fees but I guess that's just the way of things these days. I have a full sized pickup and they were able to park it without damaging it which, based on previous experiences, is quite an accomplishment in downtown San Diego.
Bottom line - even with parking added in, this place was still a much better deal than most of the downtown hotels and sacrificed nothing in the way of quality. I highly recommend it.
