“Refreshingly Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

What a treat. I have always been one to get a room for a place to sleep and nothing more; my husband decided to treat me to something so much more, and our stay at The Dana was just that. We stayed in a fabulous room with a view of the bay. There was a patio with lounge chairs as well as a table and chairs to enjoy a bit of room service with an amazing view of the water.
We were on the bottom floor so we were able to exit from the patio and walk around the corner to the heated salt water pool and the nicely oversize jacuzzi, which also had a beautiful view of the bay. The room has pool towels as well as spa robes for the guests to enjoy, not to mention the bathroom amenities are Bee Kind...perfect. The big plush towels, the beautiful room, the fabulous view, were trumped by the incredible bed...The pillows are a little too plush for me, yet other then that, this place is PERFECT. I look forward to returning for another stay, and soon.
Whatever you do, make sure you get a room with a view, it really does make ALL the difference. This is a fabulous place to stay for the honeymooners, Couples needing a retreat or families...ALL will find a reason to love the Dana, in my opinion, that is.
Thanks for the wonderful stay, we will see you again.

Room Tip: Do not settle for a standard room, it is well worth a room with a view.

I went to The Dana for a business trip that happened to take place on my 20th wedding anniversary. The sales staff we worked with were very professional and accommodating. They even sent a cookie tray to my room and a card wishing me a happy anniversary. The hotel is in a beautiful location and the on sight restaurants are top notch.

Room Tip: The rooms with the view of the bay are beautiful as is the view.

The Dana is the only palce we stay in San Diego after trying many other locations over the years. It is close to everything.
The service is always prompt and courteous starting with the check in and all the way through the check out. You can't beat the view from the Bay rooms and from the pool and Firefly cafe.
The food is always great as well.
You will never stay anywhere else after one visit, I guarantee it.

Room Tip: We always select a Bay View room for the view, but the other rooms are a great value as well. We do...

Exellent location for Sea World. Nice pools. Clean and professional. One minor problem: I reserved the hotel months in advance, checked inn late but the key was not ready and it took to long to get us into the room after a long day at Sea World.

We stayed 4 nights with the Marina View. The property is conveniently located to Sea World and offers a shuttle service which we used for one of our days. We enjoyed the hotel which offers 2 large swimming pools and hot tubs. If you like walking, there is a nice walk along Mission Bay. There are bike rentals by the Hotel if riding a bike is your enjoyment. You are not far from the beach and can ride a bike to and from the beach. Had I known, you can also fish off one of the piers. Not sure what one of the guests was catching, but they were releasing the fish and feeding a sea lion close by. The rooms were nice and comfortable. The desk staff was polite and helpful with ideas of what to see and do. We purchased our Seaworld and San Diego Safari tickets at the front desk. All around a great location with a view of the harbor and bay and attractive grounds. I would definitely stay here again.

We had always stayed on Coronado Island when we were in San Diego, but this time we needed to be in town. On a recommendation from USD, we tried The Dana and were totally charmed. We stayed in a ground floor bay view room with a nice patio and a gate that exited right out onto the park for easy access to a path for walking and jogging. The room was large with 2 queen beds, small pullout sofa, microwave, fridge, coffeemaker, safe, and free wifi. We ate dinner on the patio at the Firefly restaurant and the crispy pork belly sandwich was delicious, so we went back and had it again the second night! The Blue Pearl for breakfast was a pleasant space with acceptable food. Staff was pleasant and helpful and the grounds were beautifully landscaped.

Room Tip: Rooms in the building closest to the Firefly Restaurant seem to be the newest. Those on the ground f...
