A colleague referred this hotel to me, and I tried several times to get a room. Being a Federal employee facing sequestration (budget cutbacks), we try very hard to get value for the limited per diem dollars we can spend on a hotel.
When I finally got in, I realized what the fuss was about. As a Gold member, I received a complimentary upgrade to one of the BEST rooms in the hotel (thanks Jasmine). The view was EXCELLENT, topped only by the service. From the valet to the managers and in between, the staff went above and beyond: Each time I got my car, the valets made sure I had directions. Chris Lott and Steve Wisner were VERY gracious hosts at the VIP manager's reception on Wednesday. The restaurant staff recommended meals that fit my budget and hunger levels (not too little and not too much). Because I had an early flight, I requested room service before the restaurant opens, and Corrina had my breakfast there BEFORE 5:15. When Corrina delivered my tray, she told me that Kristina set up my tray the night before and "threatened" everyone not to touch it!!!
I can't wait to come back to this hotel; it is definitely part of the Gaslamp experience! It is in walking distance to many of the sights and located across the street from the Convention Center. There are restaurants, museums, and shops nearby (not to mention you're right down the street from Petco Park, the Padres' stadium).
Thanks so much to Steve Wisner and his competent, dedicated staff!!!!
If you can't get in the first time you call, I've got two words for you... KEEP TRYING!!! (You'll be glad you did.)
