I've been going to the Sheraton when on business in SD for about 5 years. I must have been here something like 30 times by now. This hotel is great if you're not looking for a high rise (I also stay in the Hyatt across the street, which is great but I really don't want to be in A/C when I'm in SD). I have stayed in many hotels in SD and this is the hotel I pick if I decide to stick around the weekend after work and hang out at the pool and read a book.
Reasons I like this hotel:
Easy parking and entry to your room (courtyard format so you can park near your area). It has about 5-6 two story buildings in a courtyard format, around a garden and pool. There is a little koi pond and mini waterfall and the interior is really green. It's a really refreshing change to walk around outside after being boxed up in cubicles and business hotels all week.
There is a club lounge if you have status with Starwood, it has free wine and beer and pretty good hot food.
Very close to shopping and restaurants, very close to UCSD. The back gate of this hotel has a door where you can walk directly into the shopping plaza next door, which has a Whole Foods, CVS, Peets Coffee, a movie theatre and a bunch of stuff).
Rooms: Always clean. Windows will open a little if you don't want A/C. King bed rooms have a loveseat that pulls out into a single bed (for the kid if you got one :) Microwaves and refrigerators in the rooms so I can get things at Whole Foods and eat healthy while I'm here. If you get upgraded to the club rooms they have a living room, were recently remodeled (have not been in one lately so can't compare to what they used to be like).
This weekend was completely sold out due to a water polo tournament. I only had a reservation till Thursday before last minute I decided wanted to stay around and enjoy the nice weather for the weekend. The front staff was EXCELLENT in helping me out - Craig, who I think is a GM, and Cari at the front desk managed to get me one of the last rooms available over the weekend so I wouldn't have to go stay in the Marriott down the street (nothing wrong with the Marriott, I just prefer SPG or Hyatts). This is the reason I keep coming back and I really appreciate it. Thanks!!!
