A great hotel in a good location. We are finishing up our second stay here at Puerto Vista. Could not be happier with our room or the service here. Jose and Verage (sp) and Alfredo stood out for the service. We love the location in Little Italy, the coffee shops, markets and cafes, all in easy walking distance. We will stay again when we are back in San Diego in March of 2020.

Cool, modern, fun hotel with a rooftop bar and restaurant. Rooms are quaint but nicely outfitted and clean. Great location. May be able to find parking on street but its valet only at $25/day. Nice view of mission bay. Would definitely come back.

This is a great location, has a fun vibe. Very funky. Top floor is a great setting to sit out with a bottle of wine and enjoy the San Diego sunset. Glass door offer a nice selection of San Diego beers.
