The hotel was a bit too dark for comfort especially the floors and chairs and wallpaper. It made me feel like it just wasn't clean enough because dirt was to easy to hide. The food at the conference I attended including the snacks was top notch. Perhaps the best food I have experienced at a hotel conference however other things... More

Having to go to San Diego frequently for work- this spot is great! Staff is on point- great amenities- if you forgot something they have EVERYTHING and the food at the bar is great. The room is clean and the shower and bath products are great!

The hotel is just beautiful in the lobby, the staff are superb at the front desk and the lobby is always clean. The doormen were outstanding with any needs. The hotel had free wine on arrival which was also nice. The room itself was spacious & the bed was super comfortable to sleep in. The area can be loud on... More

Enjoyed my stay here for a small on-site work conference during the week. The conference facilities were great with good room set-up and variety of food options for breakfast, lunch and snacks. Water, tea and coffee always available. Room was clean and comfortable. Great location in the Gaslamp area, not far from the airport, close to stadium, convention center and... More

We stayed here as the last stop of our west coast road trip and was given a warm and friendly welcome by all the staff. The room we got was large, comfortable and clean. This hotel is right in the Gaslamp district so it is right in the centre of all the restaurants, shops and bars and is only about... More

The hotel is on the border between the Gaslamp Quarter with its many restaurants and bars and the East Village. It is a very short distance from the Gaslamp stop on the trolley. It is near the water and the local area is pleasantly cool in summer. My room was a good size and nicely furnished. The only negatives were... More

Visited this hotel as part of our summer road trip and arrived late evening after a long and dreadful flight from New York, so we were not in a good frame of mind, however on arriving at the hotel we were very impressed with how lovely, clean and modern it looked. The room was very well laid out with comfy... More

The Good.... Excellent customer service from the time you arrive. Eric and Q were very helpful. Good location. The Bad.... The Internet not working well. We even upgraded and still didn't work. Construction very loud. The pool is very nice, but also a meat market. Not very kid friendly. The pillows are really bad. I kept asking for a new... More
