This hotel is THE hotel we like to stay in when we can in San Diego. Ocean views, close to the Coronado water taxi, close to downtown SD, it's a perfect place to stay. Seaport Village is also within walking distance as well as Gaslamp. If you are in the mood to exercise and want to be outdoors, you can...

The good: Great location Pool area is fantastic Room we had was clean and well maintained The bad: We found the staff in the restaurant to be some of the most disinterested we have experienced. We had breakfast here 3 days straight and had to constantly search out staff for coffee and drinks, the lack of attention we received almost...

Went there for a conference with another 2500 members and it was a fair stay at best. Best part of the stay is that you are bay side and they have a Starbucks. The place is clean and big but the room, though nice, was a tad small. The Vela Restaurant was fair at best. I got a salad with...

The hotel is not equipped for a group of 2,100. Conference room and lobby outside of this room too small for a larger group. The facilities are nice, service quite good. Rooms quiet and comfortable but expensive for the value.

Beautiful Hotel & Great Location. Just a few minutes walk to the Gaslamp district and all the restaurants, and stores. The rooms are spacious, well appointed with large picture windows overlooking the water and city views. The staff is warm and friendly. The public areas are open. The pool is magnificent and overlooks the water and the bridge leading to...

I was here with a group of 2,200 people for a conference. I would guess 50% or more were staying here at the hotel. Meetings were held at the hotel. My room was dated - carpet old and stained, fabric on chair had stains - in general, just looks old and worn. No refrigerator in room, so I asked for...

We booked a guaranteed king bed room, which we paid extra for but the hotel "ran out" and we were given a 2 bed room. The bed and pillows were so uncomfortable that my husband and I had to get massages to relieve our aching bodies from our "vacation." I've also stayed at a variety of 4 - 5 star...

Toilet wouldn't flush, hair in the shower, shower curtain hanging off the rod on one end and alarm clock wasn't working. The worst however was sitting in bed at 10pm and realizing it was wet from the previous occupant urinating in it!

An extremely nice hotel although locate next to the trolley yard and Dole docks which are noisy at night, the views and location is very nice.
