My wife attended a convention this week in San Diego and I accompanied her for a little vacation. We stayed at the Ramada/Gaslamp Convention Center. We had a room with a queen bed and although the accommodations were modest, they were clean and comfortable and everything worked as it should. We were most pleased with our stay.
I will note for those who may want to know, that the bathroom was small, with shower only and limited space to stow things, but these were only small deficiencies, IMO. Also, being a historic building, one should expect that things are not entirely high-end, such as antiquated elevators - not an issue for us.
The location can't be beat, three-quarters of a mile from the convention center, it was an easy walk for my wife. And centered in the Gaslamp District as we were, there were multitudinous dining and entertainment options. We had rented bikes for the week and never needed to rent a car.
The front desk staff were extremely accommodating with our many needs over our four-day stay, I can't praise them highly enough. The connected 24hr bar/diner/restaurant was great! Best pancakes ever!
We'll be sure and stay here again next time we're in San Diego.
