Thank you to Emily, Kaitlyn & Abel, you all helped make my birthday very special. We will definitely come back & stay at Hotel Republic next time we are in S.D..

It’s a nice hotel, bed was comfortable which was pretty much the best part and it came with a small fridge. Room was very nice and clean. However parking was extremely inconvenient for the price, you have to park across the street in a lot then go check in and then walk all the way back to put the slip on your dash for $35! I’m a single mom with a toddler so that was not cool. The restaurant Topside was overpriced and service was sub par. Beer choices at the main bar were pretty minimal as well. I don’t think I’d stay here again.

Dear Jeniecee, Thank you for the feedback regarding your recent stay with us. I apologize that some of your experience fell short. I will be taking your feedback to improve our communication as we certainly want to ensure our guests know in advance of the best way to register, which is to park on the white loading curb so that you don't have the extra trip. We will be adding this to our welcome email. I would be interested to hear about how we can improve our service at Topside as well as our Trade Bar is also going to be getting our updated beers. Please feel free to send me a private message and I look forward to corresponding with you. Thank you again for the time you took to share as it's so important for us to improve!

The location was wonderful because we walked to Little Italy and the San Diego Firehouse Museum. We liked the fact that we could walk wherever we wanted and felt safe doing so. You could easily walk to the harbor and the Midway and the ferry to go to Coronado Island.

We stayed two nights and had a fairly good stay. I will say our room and the property in general is sterile. One half of our room was well decorated, the other half just white emptiness. The hotel hallways and exterior are rather bland, though the lobby has personality. The room was clean, which is great. I wish they had a coffee maker in the room. It may be a result of COVID, though this would be the first property I stayed at without a coffee maker with COVID as the reason. The hotel was quick to accommodate requests, such as extra towels, a blanket etc. The staff were friendly, personable and helpful. The hotel is located in an odd location. It is a few blocks from little Italy, a few blocks from the bay, a number of blocks from the Gas Lamp district, but the hotel itself is stuck on a deserted island of parking lots and quiet government office buildings. Some reviews allude the area is unsafe, I never felt "unsafe" at all, it is just a quiet area with some homeless folks. Basically, it is near the action, just not directly in the action, if that makes sense. I had a good stay, but not sure I would try this property again. It just seemed to lack character outside the lobby.

Dear 362ryanh, Thank you for sharing your recent experience, and I am so glad the service was personal and the cleanliness and COVID safety was felt! I look forward to when we can place our additional items in the room, such as post cards for you to take with you and our coffee makers - which we now offer upon request! As things open back up, our activations such as yoga on the weekends, live music in our restaurants, and alike, give our guests the additional experiences we are so proud of. Thank you again for the feedback!

The Hotel Republic is a nice fairly new Marriot, albeit a bit sterile. I understand that we're still in a pandemic now and we have to make some compromises. I accept that hospitality doesn't make up the rooms. It was a bit more difficult to understand why there was no bellman, meaning that upon arrival I had to grab a luggage cart to tote my things to my room. Next, the room has no coffee maker. Fortunately, the staff has generously provided hot water if I journeyed to the lobby. However, when I requested a bottle of water, staff took my room number and informed me that it would cost $2. Really?

Dear mchertok, Thank you for the feedback you shared about your recent stay. Certainly with Covid, we have adjusted to ensure our services provide a safe experience for our guests. I’m doing so, our contactless service with bell services is to provide the distance from the interaction with our associates and your personal items just as our knock and drop delivery. We are looking forward to adding coffee makers back into our guest rooms very soon and do have our Trade Cafe that is open 7 days for items to purchase and happy to provide hot water delivered to your room. We look forward to increasing our offerings while doing it safely and with care. Thank you again for the valuable feedback!
