A waterfront resort enveloped by tropical landscaping, The Dana on Mission Bay delivers an exceptional lodging experience in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. Rest comfortably in a well-appointed guestroom or two-room suite overlooking Mission Bay. Delight in such quality amenities as two outdoor, heated swimming pools, fitness center, private marina, and watersport and bicycle rentals on site. Our location is both family- and business-friendly. The Dana on Mission Bay is less than one mile to Mission Beach and Belmont Park. We're the closest hotel to SeaWorld San Diego and a short drive to the San Diego Zoo. And the San Diego Convention Center is equally convenient. In short, the only thing we overlook is the bay.

The rooms were so clean, and the staff was more than excellent. Fernando was my favorite part of our stay. He greeted me with a smile and a yummy omelette every morning! The only downfall was that there was a small gym and high demand. If you go at off peak times, it was perfect. The front desk was very helpful, and my family and I really enjoyed the accommodations made by the conference venue. The staff always made sure to go out of their way to update us on the gluten restrictions on the menu for the day as my sister has an allergy. We will definitely be staying here again!

My daughter, grandson and I came for a family spring break! We gave four stars because everyone was so nice! Fernando and Jamie were amazing on the omelet bar, must try when you come! Although the resort provided several activities we could not participate because of the weather, it rained most of our 7 days! We thought the breakfast was too high $30, but they offer 50% discount! The rooms were ok, we had ants in the bathroom and the sliding doors were very hard to open or close. Overall it still was a good vacation.

Had another great stay. Just a quick trip to get away. So relaxed in two days it felt like we were there much longer. The food and service at The Firefly and room service were fantastic. Everyone on the staff are so welcoming and accommodating without being overbearing. The location by the Bay and Marina is so relaxing. Looking forward to our next visit already.
