Loved our stay here. There is such a rich history to this hotel. From an outside appearance, the contemporary lines make it seem more of an office building in the downtown lamp district of San Diego. However, step into the ornate lobby and you are transported back to Europe hundreds of years ago!
The location is great and the hotel is clean and well-maintained. Rooms are designed to look antiquated with touches of richlieu furniture. Not my style really but it fits the hotel. Mattresses could be replaced as it wasn't the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever had. Bathrooms too could use some updating.
No real complaints. I would stay here again. If you're into history, read up on the property before staying. Also - explore the ballroom level at night. It is pretty creepy and ghostlike :)
