This was a good location for walking and public transportation. We spent our first afternoon walking to Seaport Village and the Midway. Next day we walked to a corner nearby to pick up the Old Town Trolley for the day. After that we bought a 3 day pass and took public transportation all over. Even out to Point Loma via a trolley and 2 busses.
The hotel was nice rather than special. We could see the bay from our window but the window was really dirty on the outside. The concierge lounge was very crowded in the morning with inadequate seating. The staff was attentive and offered to send us down to the restaurant, but then a table was vacated.
The front desk people were friendly and usually helpful (told us we couldn't get to Point Loma on public transportation). I did enjoy the salt water taffy that was always there. No one was at the lobby concierge desk the entire 5 days we were there. The gym was closed for remodeling.
The rooftop bar was inviting and good to watch part of a Padre's game one night.
We loved San Diego and will be back, but will try the other Marriott (convention center) next time.
