Very up to date and modern. Conveniently located to theaters, dining and shopping. The staff are very professional and helpful. The facilities are the best I have stayed at in San Diego. All shopping, dining etc. are within walking distance.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less A/C unit noise

Stayed here for work travel on a regular basis because of the friendly staff and the nice rooms. I loved the suite type feel to the rooms. Each room has a separated livingroom/kitchen and was well groomed. Every morning they would have free breakfast which is beneficial to those that want to save a few extra bucks. Also, 3 days out of the week (Monday thru Weds) they have a social hour at 6PM - 730PM where you can take advantage of free dinner and liquor. Definitely would recommend this place to visitors of all types. It is a good location too and is about a 20 minute trip to Gaslamp District.

I'm so glad to hear that you have made us your hotel of choice when you are in San Diego.

Yes, our guests love our complimentary breakfast and evening social. I'm usually the one at the BBQ on Wednesday flipping burgers. Next time you are here, please come out and introduce yourself.

I have stayed at this property multiple times and each time is quiet and wonderful! The housekeeping supervisor (Ellana) and operations manager (Hetal) know how to run their property! I commute every week to the area and I wish I could stay here more often!

Room Tip: Building 5 and 6 are quiet and not too far but not too close to the front desk or noisey areas.

Stayed here last week when most hotels were booked solid by the Comic Convention, no wonder why so many were wearing masks....and the Gay Priders....
Room was clean and quite location was provided per request by the front desk from the comic comedians.....
A bit high price wise but the entire area hostelry were taking advantage of the comic book aficionados....

This was a very nice hotel. Many things to do around the hotel. Shopping and food was close. I was traveling for business so having those things around the hotel made it very convenient. The hotel is very close to the freeway so it made it easier to commute to work. I plan on returning to San Diego in two weeks and I will stay at this hotel again.
