This hotel was more for single, solo travelers. The rooms were 12 x 12, fitting two queen beds, two massive pieces of furniture. There were...no kidding...2 feet in between all the pieces of furniture. Definitely not suitable for those people traveling with children. Bathroom was aesthetically pleasing but not functional - almost a safety hazzard. Also - parking is $25 per day and valet was mandatory. Definitely an excellent location though - within walking distance to great shopping.

We stayed at The Sofia during a business trip that we extended into a short vacation. This property worked great for both. For business, it was close to the convention center. Our company also had a meeting at the hotel and the facility was wonderful. For fun, this hotel was close to everything including the Gaslamp District. The location could not get any better.

The hotel provided some great services that we have not seen anywhere else, including a complimentary San Diego Walking Tour.

The staff was also incredibly friendly.

Overall, this was a great value for Downtown San Diego. We will be back!
