The area around the hotel is in poor condition. We stepped over urine while walking to breakfast. Lots of homeless around the area. There are also very few restaurants in the area. I would stay elsewhere

Hotel's Favorite
This hotel exceeded expectations! We had a corner suite and it was a wonderful room. Plenty of space and also lovely and bright from all the windows. Breakfast in the morning was lovely. One of the hosts (forgot her name, but a slightly more mature lady who has moved to San Diego recently) had the most wonderful customer service and welcomed us every morning with a beaming smile. The bar upstairs was lovely and Ben (director of ops) who has only been with the hotel for a couple of weeks was so friendly and is a real asset to the hotel. Location is just perfect. Walking distance to the seaport, gaslamp, little Italy. And only a 10min ride to airport. Will definitely return.

We had a very nice stay. At the end of the stay there was a very unfortunate situation related to our valet parking. However - long story short - the hotel made it right - they fixed the problem, dealt with us with respect and great communications, and comped our entire stay. I would highly recommend this hotel and this staff. -Cameron

Marriott's Autograph Collection is supposed to be a collection of "upper upscale to luxury" hotels. This is definitely not in that category, though the price is: With tax and resort fee, more than $400 a night. We were headed to San Diego for a night at the opera and chose the Republic because it claims to be a four-star, the opera is only six blocks away, and the hotel supposedly has a fab new restaurant. Upon arrival in the dense downtown area, we were informed there was no bellman on duty to help with luggage and the sole employee at the check-in desk (after we stood in line behind four people) chirped like a teenager, "Well he has to have a day off." The newly furnished rooms were fine but, like a lower-end property, there was no comfy armchair, a naked minibar, and no room service. We had booked dinner at their pretty second-floor terrace restaurant - where our grilled salmon, veggie burger, and charcuterie platter were delicious, and the Malbec was excellent, and the service was attentive and friendly (thank you, Emma). However, we were not informed that about ten feet away in the same outdoor space, about 100 people were attending a corporate cocktail party. Throughout the hour of our dinner, we had to listen to the executives of Clearspeed on a loud PA system drone on about their vision, goals, yadda, yadda. A nice manager named Ben heard us complaining and moved us to a slightly better room (away from the view of the local jail.) All in all, I suggest staying elsewhere unless and until the Republic gets its management act together. Unless, that is, you have business at the local jail or with one of the several bail bonds boutiques surrounding the hotel.

I loved this boutique hotel with a big hotel feel. The staff - from the bar and waitstaff to the concierge and front desk and ESPECIALLY Rafael and James at the Valet booth - were so friendly and helpful every single time they dealt with me. This stay was so enjoyable!

Lovely hotel! Room modern and spacious with comfy bed and lovely clean bathroom. Lovely upstairs outdoor terrace area for relaxing. Didn’t have any food here at all so can’t comment on this. Bar closed at 10pm which was very early for such a lovely hotel, so no chance of a night cap here before bed. Staff courteous and friendly. Getting a taxi for 4 adults with 4 suitcases proved to be a challenge but worked eventually! Not a lot going on in the immediate vicinity so be prepared for a bit of a walk for bars, restaurants etc. Would stay here again!
