I stayed here over the 4th July weekend which was in the middle of a package holiday so it was all paid for in the travel agents upfront. Imagine my surprise when i return home and have a read through my credit card statement to see Four Points by Sheraton had charged me the full price again ($500). They knew...

handy to access from the I5. Rooms are nicely designed and well decorated - including many furnishing details for unpacking (helpful if staying for a few days. while the room showed wear and tear, it was certainly typical of a business class hotel. we enjoyed our stay very much. valet parking overnight was $30 - the service was friendly and...

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a California Road Trip. Although the hotel is somewhat dated, do not let this put you off as its location is fantastic!! Arrived a the hotel and received a warm welcome at reception. Unfortunately I do not recall the receptionists name but she looked liked Mila Kunis. Anyway, she was great,...

Valet parking is a joke! They left my new Explorer in the blazing sun all day! Never moved it to the underground parking which I expected for $30. Could have parked on the street for nothing! Hotel tired, small swimming pool located next to freeways, room small, windows dirty, freeway view. Only good thing was walking proximity to Little Italy.

After our experience at Four Points ( aero drive) the staff at this hotel could not be more helpful, the staff sorted all our problems, nice clean rooms, close to all ( gas lamp quarter, little Italy, and balboa park. Great staff from front desk to new barman who was run off his feet, but nothing to much trouble.

The hotel was great, and the staff was super friendly and nice. I was impressed! The few downsides is forced valet parking, that is the only choice you get there. Don't get me wrong the valets are friendly and speedy. I just don't like having no other choice. The other complaint is the glass door into the bathroom, it was...

I was taking a cruise out of San Diego. This property is centrally located and within walking distance to Balboa Park, the Italian District and many other points of interest. Check in was quite slow, it seemed there was several others from a wedding that had just returned to the hotel on my arrival. Once I was able to speak...

Great location (little italy) 5 minute walk down to the harbor and 15 minute walk to the glaslamp quarter. Hotel was like in the pictures and clean. Only downfall is the $30 valet parkng. save your money and park down the street for $5 instead! we learned this the next day when we walked around.

Let me get my complaint out of the way regarding mandatory $30/day valet. This was a total "bait and switch" when booking this hotel. If this information is available online, it wasn't obvious at all when booking. We paid less than that per day for the car rental! And we were coming and going a lot, so it was also...

First of all, I cannot say enough about the wonderful customer service at this hotel. We had my 86 year old father with us, and although the Little Italy neighborhood was nearby for great restaurants, it was too far for him to walk. The hotel provided us with shuttle service to and from dinner. The hotel manager, Aaron, was outstanding....
