A very nice hotel with a perfect location for a convention. Located just across the San Diego Convention Center, this hotel is close to almost everything of interest in downtown San Diego.It is conveniently near the gaslamp district where you will find all sorts of bars and restaurants and is also a few minutes walk to the USS midway museum. Very near also is the train stop which you can take to go to as far as the Las Americas outlet mall near the border of Mexico. The rooms are spacious and adequately furnished and the amenities are above average. I also love the bar with a patio facing the bay where you can have drinks at night. The walkway connecting to the bay walk is perfect for our early morning runs. The only negative thing i can say about this hotel is our experience at the breakfast buffet. We stayed for 5 days in the hotel and everyday we had to wait for atleast 15 minutes to get a table. They do give you a pager but you can't really go very far and there were not enough seats while waiting, so every morning you will see a long queu leading to the restaurant. We tried going early, at 630AM, and late, 9Am, but still the line was long. The staff explained that the hotel was full and that there were several conventions going on in the convention center. But they should have anticipated that given their location or atleast open another restaurant for breakfast if the hotel is full. To make things worst, you get the same food everyday. The choices did not vary and you will see the same type of food on the same tray on the same spot everyday. Again, they know that most of their guests are attending conventions which lasts for a few days so they should atleast vary their food selections (atleast the main courses) everyday. What made us go back to breakfast everyday (aside from the fact that it is included in the room charges) are the very courteous and friendly staffs in the restaurant. Overall, my experience in this hotel was excellent and if you get tired of the same food during breakfast, there is always Starbucks infront of the hotel.
