This is a grand old hotel in the heart of the Gas Lamp Quarter. The hotel was apparently recently remodeled and was just beautiful. We stayed in a deluxe king room at the beginning and end of our cruise. Our rooms were well apportioned and the staff was exceptional. The location could not have been better with a 10 minute cab ride from the airport and the same from the hotel to the cruise ship. The hotel offered a town car for our ride to the ship for $12. We gave our amazing driver $20 as he maneuvered a lot of the traffic around the cruise ship terminal. We also used the concierge service (1/4/14) for advice of touring San Diego and the gentleman could not have been more friendly and helpful.
Our first room was quiet except when the trash trucks came by early morning. The widows are not insulated so we were woken up. The second stay proved to be challenging as the adjoining room had a bunch of teenagers. They weren’t necessary loud but we could hear every word they said as if they were in the bed with us. The sound came from the door adjoining the rooms and not the wall so you may want to ask for a room without such an adjoining door. As it was midnight, we called the front desk to switch rooms. With no rooms to be had, they sent security and the issue went away.
Two very minor points is that they don’t regularly pick up dishes left outside rooms. We saw a gentleman with a large cart going through the floor with obvious dirty dishes but he walked past many sitting in front of several rooms. The same dishes were there until we checked out. They also have heavy carpet on the room floors which makes rolling suitcases difficult so you may want to use a bellhop if you think that would pose a problem.
Overall it was great experience and we would return.
