This hotel is a diamond in the rough! Historic hotel in the midst of a modern city. Beautiful touches including ceiling fans and fireplaces in the bed rooms. Old world charm with all the modern amenities. Loved it

Staying at this hotel was a very pleasant experience. The location is perfect in the gaslamp district where you can find many restaurants. It is also walking distance to the conversation center and to other hotels nearby. This hotel also dates back to the 1800s and the interior still has objects from that area. One night there was a tourist group inside with a guide probably talking about the history of this place. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. I would stay here again.

One of the nicest experiences we’ve had. Danielle at the front desk was so helpful with everything, going above and beyond to help us. Early check in, arranging transport back to LA in a hurry, late check out - nothing too much trouble. The hotel is old but has a lovely vibe about it and character which is missing in so many newer places. Comfy bed. Great location in the Gaslamp Quarter - close to restaurants, the Old Town trolley stop is right outside, convention centre etc. Would definitely stay again if we return to San Diego. Recommend it to anyone looking for something different

We were extremely satisfied with our stay. We had returned from a cruise and they let us check in at 10:00 AM for a small fee. The room had a balcony overlooking the courtyard, a fireplace, and wonderful bed. The historic hotel was very charming and centrally located for the gaslamp district. The trolley stops at the corner and there are many restaurants in the area. Our flight wasn’t until 8:00 PM and they stored our luggage for free. From checking in to checking out we had a wonderful experience.

Had a loveley room with balcony overlooking courtyard. It had a gas log fire which unfortunately we did not get to use. Breakfast is good but serves are very big. There is a good bar there which opens at 4pm. If you are into bourbons or whiskies there are 800 to choose from. There is occasionally live music but very loud and we were on the 3rd floor. The place is kept clean. Nearby is pretty much all you need including an irish pub and a laundry. Loved it
