So here are the details:
We are a couple, traveling without our kids.
We have our last 2 nights of our Cali road trip (starting in Napa) and ending here.
I like being on a beach but we want access to downtown to catch a ball game and a night in the Gaslamp area.
I assume that the Del, being a landmark etc would be the choice hotel, however, we won't be spending that much time at the hotel.
Price $216 for luxury room at Loews (2-3 upgrades) vs the best rate I can find at Del $299 for a standard rm (which seems like a great rate).
Worth spending the extra for the Del, or not to bother since we won't have too much time to enjoy the resort? I can't decide!!!
