Just left this amazing little hotel. The location is perfect for a ballgame or to walk around downtown. I loved the evening happy hours. Elena was amazing. Q who checked us in and continued to help with recommendations of the area was an absolute sweetheart! I will certainly visit again.

Nice hotel, good location, pool is small but the pool deck has a nice vibe. Its a good 4 star hotel with nice touches such as great linen. Breakfast is also good, if not great, there are alternatives in the area.

He provided fantastic information regarding local restaurants, directions to the conference I was attending, and tips about the Gas Lamp District of San Diego. Because my plans changed,... More

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

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
