“Great Location!”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

Close to convention center, stadium, many resturants.
Great breakfast (Similar-to, but a little above typical Residence Inns), attentive staff, good Internet and printer support, roomy and comfortable.
Quiet!
No problems!

Room Tip: I was on the 9th floor facing the back street with returants and bars. I expected some noise, but...

I stayed at this hotel for the San Diego Rock 'n' Roll marathon. The room was great and the location was wonderful. It is one block away from the many restaurants and shops on 5th Avenue. The staff was very friendly and I didn't hear any noise from my room on the 4th floor (which I thought I would being in the Gaslamp). The only negative about the hotel was the cost of parking, but all hotels in the area charge a lot for parking. If you don't need your car during your visit, there is an outdoor lot and a parking garage next to the hotel that charge a cheaper price for parking; but you don't get in and out privileges.

Ravens67,

Thank you for choosing to stay with us during the Rock N Roll marathon. It was a very cheerful and inspiring day in our beautiful city of San Diego. We take pride in our hotel and prime location. Our parking fee is comparable to our competitors and our wonderful valet staff is always eager to assist all of our guest as they come and go. We appreciate you and hope to see you soon.

Housekeeping was a touch lax, but let me say that these are the most beautiful hotel rooms that I have ever seen anywhere! The dark wood fixtures in the kitchen are just gorgeous. It was a little sad that the breakfast didn't have the sausage that you would usually see at Residence Inn locations, but hey, it's free. :) I stayed here over St. Patrick's Day, part of a last minute pub crawl venture that I drove down for with some friends. The fun downtown night life is very walkable from this location. I'd definitely stay again.

We have stayed at several hotels with great service but what we have experienced today is exceptional!!! Cathy Schultz is superb!!! She went beyond our expectations with service and hospitality. We felt really special this time even if we are frequent guests of Marriott.

My room really had the "wow" factor. It was very spacioius. The bed was amazingly comfortable. I was there for a 4 day meeting and found the entire hotel to be perfect for our event. The location was within walking distance to everything. We went out each night and tried different restaurants and even walked to the mall to do some shopping! The staff was very friendly from the General Manager, the banquet staff member, Maria, to the restaurant supervisor, Joanne. I would stay here again. I enjoy the gaslamp district and look forward to returning for a leisure stay next time!

Room Tip: I had a corner room and it was larger than my collegues room down the hall.

I stayed at this location to attend a friend's wedding. The location of the hotel is great. Right in the heart of the trendy Gaslamp Quarter. We were also really close to the city's trolley system. The staff of the hotel was very friendly and helped us navigate our way to a few tourists destinations.

The rooms are well equipped and nicely decorated. I really liked having the kitchenette. It made the trip easier. The breakfast at the hotel was very good, with a much larger selection of food items than I anticipated. There were eggs, bacon, waffles, oatmeal, bagels, yogurt, fresh fruit, and more! There is a pool, but it's pretty small. I still enjoyed a morning swim though!
