I scheduled a Board Meeting at the Bristol for the 3rd year in a row. Great service, recently updated rooms, spacious Board Room, reasonably priced and excellent food service. I couldn't be more pleased with our stay.

This hotel is elegant and well-appointed. It is in a fantastic location within walking distance to Gaslamp and Little Italy. Check in was easy. The bed was the most comfortable one I have ever slept in and the room was gorgeous. Would definitely recommend!

My husband and I vastly overpaid for this hotel!!! We brought our dog along to this "pet friendly" hotel only to be charged an extra 25 dollars per night, in addition to the 39 dollar a night parking fee. That is quite a lot for a hotel with peeling paint in their rooms... We were also encouraged to pay for the "continental breakfast" - at 10 dollars a person to be offered less of a selection than I have had at a Best Western for free! The rooms also had incredibly thin walls, we could hear other guests entire conversations in the hallway. Overall, a lackluster experience.

Dear MarnieRella, Thank you for your recent stay and we are very sorry to see that you were not more satisfied with your experience. We do try our best to keep the pet fee and valet parking fees lower than surrounding hotels, as we know that cost can add up for our guests. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by noise in the hallway, and we will do our best to improve wherever we can. We are truly sorry that you did not experience the exceptional experience we strive to provide for all our guests. Thank you for sharing your feedback and we wish you safe travels. Warmest regards, Deb Sanderlin, General Manager

Nice hotel. Difficult to get car in and out. Much cheaper lot across the street. Staff that handled our class reunion was great and most helpful. Room was comfortable and front desk staff was very nice. Continental Breakfast does not measure up to Holiday Inn, Hampton Inn, etc. levels. I knew noise would be a problem when there were earplugs on the nightstand.
