The hotel is conviently located if you need to stay downtown. I was not greeted when I walked in the lobby & wasn't sure where to check in. The room is nice. They charge $46 a night parking. Plus $18 (I believe) a night for wifi in the room. Too many additional costs for my liking. The parking staff &... More

Spent a few days here - the included breakfast & happy hour are a draw! Rooms were nice, might need a bit of updating but I can see how kids will age a property. I was taken aback by the $48/night parking fee (only valet is available) and will consider a different property for our next visit.

GusIII, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. I can agree, our breakfast and reception are awesome features that our hotel offers. I can understand you feelings towards the $46 valet fee, however that charge is consistent throughout the downtown San Diego area. In fact, it is actually the lowest valet fee in our... More

All in all the hotel was nice and clean. The lobby could use a little warmth. It's bear and cold. The staff was courteous. Parking is expensive so be prepared. Rooms are clean. Beds are comfortable with great pillows. Complimentary happy hour and breakfast made it a nice stay.

Hey Douglas! Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and appreciate your kind words regarding our staff. Parking is expensive in downtown San Diego, but our Valet guys are simply the BEST! Our evening reception and our cooked to order breakfast await you, so come back soon. More

I stayed here because the "conference" hotel was booked solid very quickly. This was the overflow hotel and I'm glad I was in it! The room was nice, comfy bed, everything in working order. But the staff made the stay for me! Also the breakfast and evening meals/ snacks were very good. Lots of variety! Great location, too!

Hotel is nice; rooms are spacious and clean. Staff at Lobby friendly but service is rude and slow. Unfortunately I left some items in my room but House Keeping didn't find them. Valet Parking is $46/night, they dented my brand new car and washed their hands, Self Park is not available. I wouldn't stay again.

Hey Yayo O! Thank you for the acknowledging our friendly staff. Seems that you had an enjoyable stay at our hotel, despite the parking incident. Downtown hotels charge the same or more for valet, and although self-parking is not an option for us, we would have been more than happy to direct you to an unsecure lot. However you sometimes...

Great value for the money; great space, complimentary breakfast and happy hour made for a relaxing non-rushed morning and evening. Friendly and personable staff. Great down-town location close to everything.

I've stayed here several times both for business and vacation. It is within walking distance of the convention center and many of the tourist attractions on the water. The rooms, like in all Embassy Suites, are spacious and comfortable. It is nice to be able to go to bed while your partner is reading comfortably in the other room. Also... More

Hello Jay B! We are very proud of our lovely city, and of course our location.

If you wanted to park your vehicle in a public unsecure lot, we would have been more than happy... More

This was a great experience, they provided free happy hour drinks with the room (but had to wait in a very long line). The room was lovely and spacious. The staff friendly and helpful. Had a wonderful time but I am very frugal and feel there are better ways to spend the kind of money charged for this suite.
