My husband and I are planning a last minute trip to the San Diego area next weekend for our 10 year anniversary and are having a difficult time deciding where to stay. Since it is so last minute and the weekend after Valentine's Day, it seems as if all of the places we originally thought we would want to stay are booked. Our original plan was to stay in the Mission Beach area on the beach so that we could walk around to restaurants/beach/shops, but all nice places are unavailable. We are now leaning towards the Hilton San Diego Bayfront so that we can walk to the Gaslamp District and just drive to the beach. Any pros/cons for this hotel? Any other suggestions?
My husband and I are in our early 30's and we planned on renting beach cruisers one day to ride along the beach and stop in some bars, planned on doing some shopping, going out to some nice restaurants and bars at night. We are driving in from Phoenix, AZ on Friday and will be heading home on Monday. We hoped to spend no more than $200/night.
Any tips or ideas would be much appreciated!!
