We were a family of 4 who stayed at the Marriott for the San Diego Marathon. The location could not be beat. We were close to the Gaslamp District where we walked every night for dinner and Petco Park was like 50 steps away.
Otherwise this is a pretty normal Marriott-nothing really special. The bar downstairs was nice for happy hour, but by early evening it cleared out for the bar upstairs I would assume. We only made it upstairs to bar once since we had young kids, but the views were great from there.
The check in counter was fast and everyone was very nice. I would say though they or the people out front did not seem to have many recommendations or thoughts about what to do or where to go so we were on our own for that.
We stayed in a normal room with 2 beds and it was fairly crowded for 2 adults and 2 young children. The beds were pretty cramped. Luckily we weren't in our rooms very much. Because of the cost of parking we ended up not getting a car and taking cabs everywhere (which were easy to get).
The bonus of the hotel was it was right in the middle of everything for the marathon. You could walk to the convention center for packet pick up and the finish for the marathon was at Petco Park. The hotel had a shuttle to the start line for a small fee which was a nice touch.
The summarize this is a pretty basic Marriott that happens to be in a great location in the heart of a lot of things to do in San Diego.
