I enjoyed staying here. It's conveniently located with public transportation handy. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Merry was particularly helpful when we encountered a problem. The breakfast saved time and money. It was on the rooftop which gave us a spectacular view of the city and seafront.

Stayed their on a recent Friday night. Like earlier reviews I learned the hard way that the rooms facing E street on weekends are at the mercy of a very marginal saxaphone playing street musician . Remodeled from formerly serving as the 1st 10 story sky scrapper in San Diego, the suites are very large, with both a bed area... More

The hotel is right next to the tourist attraction the Gaslight area with many restaurants, clubs and stores. It has an old fashioned elegance, the rooms are decorated with old photos and prints, antique furniture and the counters look like marble. There is a great deck on the roof with they serve breakfast, although it was mostly muffins and bagels,... More

This hotel location is good. And staff are very kind. But, I can't sleep until 1AM. Because, I heard something like club music sound until 1 AM. If you get the room 206, you must change other room. 호텔 위치는 좋습니다. 스테프들은 매우 친절합니다. 그런데, 새벽 1시까지 잠을 잘수가 없었습니다. 클럽 같은 쿵쾅거리는 소리가 새벽 1시까지 이어 졌습니다. 만약 206호... More

This hotel is in a great location. We walked to everything we needed and even drunk we easily found our way back to the hotel haha! The front desk lady was a little unfriendly and said "Let me see if we can get you a room:" even though I prepaid back in January. The room was nice but the door... More

We loved this hotel. An historic building turned into a hotel-beautiful marble and brasswork, the room was comfortable and well decorated. The bid soaking tub was nice, too. We were on the 10th floor with a view of San Diego and the ocean. The location is great-right downtown with dozens of good restaurants within a few blocks. It was a... More

We arrived a little tired from travel to the most buoyant and friendly receptionist I think I have ever met, she gave us a wonderful overall run down on the place too. All the reception staff were friendly and very informative from where to go which bus to catch etc - they also have a great written tour of the... More
