I wanted something unique for a Romantic weekend in San Diego, so I chose this over the big cookie-cutter chain hotels. If you appreciate modern design, you will love this hotel. The materials, electronics, lighting and bath fixtures are all top of the line. The shower, in particular, is a work of art. It's a large glass box that's open to the room with both a waterfall shower on the ceiling and a hand shower on the wall. Another favorite feature was the in-room cappuccino machine. And the lighting controls are the best of any hotel I have stayed in. The beds and linens are extraordinarily comfortable, and the pull-out wardrobes are both unique and easy to use.
The biggest downside to staying here is the noise. If you don't plan to stay up late on weekends, don't stay here. The hotel is located in the busiest part of the gaslamp district, and there are loads of bars and restaurants nearby. For us, a young couple staying for the weekend to visit friends, this was an asset. For older people, this would likely not be the case. I would not recommend this hotel for families.
