The remodeled floors are beautiful! Great view and lots of space. The bathrooms are huge! The bar/lounge leaves much to be desired. Food menu is limited and overpriced. No room service and quite honestly you'll do better hitting an overpriced restaurant on 5th street. Parking is also high at $40, just $5 more than self parking.

I did not like this building when I stayed her as a Marriott hotel and i like it less now.. To pay $35.00/day parking to drive up 11 floors with low ceilings and sharp turns is not a necessity for a vacation! If you insist on staying here pay the extra $5.00 a day and use valet. I would hold... More

This property was recently acquired by Marriott and is in the process of being renovated and converted to a time-share hotel, so I was not surprised that there was nothing charming or special about this hotel. While I suspect this venue will be significantly upgraded with the conversion to time-share, I doubt that there will be change for the dozens... More

Granted we paid a little less money I think as the pool / bar / restaurant were closed for refurbishments, however the rooms were incredible and so spacious. Our view overlooked some of San Diego and some of the airport so we got to see all of the planes coming into the city. The hotel was only around a 10-15... More

Thank you for a wonderful stay. The room and service was great. I did not receive my 40% off coupon through email. Is it possible to get another. I would love to stay again. Thank you for the great time.

We only stayed for 30 minutes before leaving. The staff is amazing and some stuff about it is really good but the actual hotel sucks. Our room smelled like rotten milk and there is a really loud buzzing. We told the staff and they took us to look at other rooms but the other rooms smelled twice as bad and... More

But nothing has changed : no swimming pool, no in-house bar & restaurant, no in-room microwave & refrigerator, no wifi, no concierge, and old furnitures. Next time we rather back to... More

I stayed at the Declan Suites in June 2016 for work as it was a conference sponsored hotel. Staff was very friendly and helpful, however the rooms could have been better. The whole room had a very outdated look and feel with built in dressers and old French doors. 2 of the sliding doors in my room did not slide... More

There was a musky, old smell to the room when you first enter the room. The blankets especially on the sofa bed does not appear freshly clean. However the location of the hotel suited my family needs. I was also, mislead that there would be free breakfast in the mornings by one of the staff. I thought that would have... More

Located close to the main Gaslamp district. Walking distance to all the basic amenities around. Maintained property with good spacious rooms & with attached Sofa room. Was under renovation when we stayed, Hence couldn't access restaurant, gym, pool and other services. But for the price i would say best deal in San diego downtown.
