Rooms need love. Strategic location, next to Petco Park and the convention center. Walking distance to the marina and the ferry to Coronado Island. Just meters away from the 5th Avenue and the night live of San Diego

The hotel was very nice and the decor was eye catching. The area was very good too. However, I was harassed for my key card in broad daylight on entry. I guess I'm not good enough to spend my money or stay at this nice hotel. The management wasn't much help and sided with his employee. What I will say is if I'm minding my business and enjoying my stay let me live. I will not be staying or recommending this hotel because of the STAFF and MANAGEMENT.

Room i had was large with a sitting area with couch and a balcony which were nice. Hotel was 2 blocks from convention center which was great. Despite space, room had no desk and chair to plug in a laptop and work! Stupid plan for a hotel near a convention center. Room also had no bathroom, which can be awkward for family or room share. It had a shower stall on one side, too small for dressing, a toilet on opposite side, and a small sink in middle of room with small countertop. Bed was comforta le and clean. Lighting a bit poor. Furnishings ok but a bit tired.

I would not recommend this hotel. The room set up is weird. The bathroom sink is in the center of the room. The sink does not have an electrical outlet so I had to curl my hair from my nightstand without a mirror. There is an All Access Pass $25/day charge for things that are obscure and were never used. We paid extra for a balcony room, but our room overlooked an ugly parking garage. The pool is unaccesable because of a Liquid Sunshine party on Saturdays. We were very dissappointed with our stay.

paid almost $700 to stay 2 nights in a room that had almost no walking space. the restaurants and bars offered by the hotel were completely empty. the restaurant seemed closed during many hours it was supposedly “open”. the sink and shower were not working correctly. I felt like i was staying in a motel with a nice set of stairs. and what bar closes at 10pm in downtown san diego (or anywhere for that matter). they fill your fridge to the top with products you need to pay to use instead of letting you have a fridge to put your items in. we had space to fit one cup in what was a decent sized fridge. said drinks that were filling the fridge we’re almost $10 per can and some even more than that…. and im talking about cans of water, soda, and a couple beers….

My family and I stayed here for my birthday in may and the service and hotel was extremely amazing! The hotel sparkled with cleanliness, and I was excited to see what things they had on there walls from famous singers (madonna's stuff was my favourite). Starting off with Valet parking, which made it easy to check in and out. Then getting greeted by Mickey at reception who upgraded our room because it was my birthday!!!! She made our stay special and we are so happy that we got the opportunity to stay in our upgraded room. Our room was truely the best room with kids. It had a wrap around deck, a sitting area with sofa and chair, full bar, and a big screen TV that could be divided from the beds with another tv with a curtain. the bathroom and shower were in the middle of the room. One on each side ( so easy with kids)! We had time to enjoy the pool with amazing music! Great experience.Wished we could have enjoyed the bar, but you know... kids. We will deffinately stay here next time we visit beautiful san diego. The location with the spaghetti factory and cheesecake factory walking distance were a must to go to especially with kids. Also great location if you want to see a baseball game and seaport village. We saw the stadium from our balcony! Thanks mickey for making our trip a success! Great food , location, hotel and amazing staff 👍See you again
