Stayed here for several days for a meeting. Hotel is in a decent location but a tale of (2) sides. Beautiful views of the city off one side and some pretty dull views off the opposite side including that of the airport. (Odd numbers face city). Rooms are so so and I would say pretty dated. Had some problems with the shower faucet and it never stopped leaking. Front desk staff was not the most helpful. Reception on TV cut in and out on some channels. Believe this was satellite related. Would NOT stay here in anything but a balcony room facing the city. There are plenty of balcony rooms - but not every room has one.
Ate breakfast each day and I would rate the buffet as "good" or better than most. Believe it was 12.95 or so. Wait staff was very accomodating. Bar area seemed odd. Corner bar with very little seating. No wait staff besides the friendly bar tender gal. Outdoor pool area on 5th floor is nice. Has a small pool, hot tub and workout room just off the patio area. Nice views of downtown.
Little Italy is within a couple blocks and has some great restaurants.
Our group had a very reasonable rate.
Might think there could be better and newer lodging options in downtown San Diego.
