I'm a history buff so that the hotel's history alone made me like the hotel. This building was San Diego's first skyscraper. This building started off as a bank and then became an office building before becoming a hotel in 1988. You can feel the building's history while walking through the halls to your room. The doors to your room look like old office doors with a mail slot on the side (the slots obviously cannot be opened anymore). The suites you stay in were once offices in the 1940s and 50s. The room themselves are spacious. The kitchen area is practical but i never use them (why would you want to cook while on vacation?). You get a microwave, a mini fridge and all the utensils/silverware you need to get you through the week. You have a pullout couch in the living area that would come in handy if you have a bigger family. The free rooftop continental breakfast will give you enough energy to get your day started. The location of the hotel is awesome. You have great access to great food and bars nearby. El Indio restaurant is a short 10 minutes drive. The Gaslamp Plaza Suites is definitely a great stay in the Gaslamp district.
