I like that the staff was so helpful
The hotel was in the perfect location and has a historic feel to it. The elevators were a 1912 feel with the gate and had you feeling like you were on the titanic. The rooms were cute..very small with the sink in bedroom..but had some charm to it.
The staff was horrible..I've never experienced that poor of service before. First when I checked in the front desk young man looked like he was high and couldn't even look me in the eye. He gave a vibe that he did not want to be there and I didnt feel welcome..then these elevators..yes they're really cool because its historic and all but with a heavy door and gate that you need to hold open and pray you don't slam your finger on it is tough. Especially when trying to fit 2 people and a cart inside its near impossible..and that's not where the elevator issue ends. When checking out they state for a faster way you can check out on the TV..10 min later and after check out time it states that there is an error...so I have to run downstairs to check out before they charge me again...well there are only 2 elevators and 1 was out of order. Worst time for that to happen when there are many people checking out...the front desk helped with the issue but trying to get back down with our cart and a broken elevator was very frustrating. Doesn't end there...as were waiting for valet parking...and waiting and waiting... With no one bothering to ask us for our ticket.. There was no one around and finally after 20 min of waiting here comes the valet guy after I complained of waiting so long with absolutely no help. Point being...I will not be staying here again and will not recommend this hotel to anyone I know. Hopefully I can spare you from the trouble as well..
Location was on point, right in the city. Amazing amenities, the rooms were a pretty good size. Really liked it. Loved the vintage look, with the old classic elevators snd such.
The elevator was cool, but small, also, I didn't know there was more than one. That makes it better.
LOVE THE LOCATION, WITH TONS OF BARS AND RESTAURANTS EVERYWHERE YOU LOOKED...GOOD LITTLE SHOPPING SPOTS AND SHORT DRIVE OVER BRIDGE TO CORRONADO ISLAND...nice rooftop viewing and patio
Hotel was Old, but Charming, with the old elevator, and hotel dates back to 1912 or thereabouts, but that was good too.
The 1913 building is lovely. We enjoyed the beautiful lobby décor with the ambiance of yesteryear, the old elevators and architecture of the building. We liked the Gaslamp location, valet parking, and the rooftop access, which has a great view of the city. We would stay there again.
Looking out of the window of room 224 you have a beautiful view of the building across the way, which seems 10 feet away. The young adults (maybe 8 of them) in the apartment in that building were having so much fun laughing, listening to music, drinking and smoking until 3:00 a.m. We especially enjoyed it when they took the party out on the fire escape. Before leaving for dinner, I looked out the window and wondered why the big blue ice chest was on the fire escape. I found out later that night...They needed somewhere to sit. We remember what it was like being 20 something so we laughed it off, but if you are on a business trip and need to sleep do not get room 224.
Great location and price
Old elavator. Would not work for those w fiscal challenges
Wifi is terribly slow Elevators need to get used to
The view from the too
Roof terrace, bring your own beer Perfect Location Great room Price Friendly and helpful staff
Location in center of city close to Balboa Theater. The hotel was a good remodel of an old building. Great ambiance. The people in charge were friendly and helpful. Loved the rooftop area to view all of San Diego.
Air conditioners were very noisy and somewhat ineffective. I would have liked a small fridge and microwave.
Incompetent staff, we were unable to check in even after the required 3 pm check in. Woman behind the desk never thought to check to see if any other rooms were available instead of the two that were specifically set aside for us until I asked! Gym was a complete joke, rundown and old with only two machines. Rooms very cramped and dated flooring and bathrooms (didn't walk around barefoot) and dingy tile floors in bathroom. A/C units were in the windows so you could here all the street noise (ambulances, people, cars, etc) all night making sleep difficult. They even give you one (even though it was my husband and I in the room) pairs of earplugs as a suggestion to get sleep (uhhh ok?). We were a party of four with one car and they charged us both for the parking at check out and the manger was unresponsive and as incompetent as his staff when we asked for assistance. The ONLY highlight in staff was the shuttle driver that took us to the airport. Super friendly and hard working kid. This hotel could benifit from hiring less empathetic staff and upgrade the rooms to improve on noise and cleanliness.
I liked the location and the distance from the airport. The food at Brian's which is a 24 hour spot connected to the hotel.
The 20min shuttle to the hotel was a hour late picking us up. I did not like discovering after check in that the hotel is historic. The elevator is old fashion and self operated. I requested a double bedroom and what I got was two rooms with only enough room for one bed. The room had roaches. The windows lead out to a enclosed brick wall. Whenever people showered in the room above us our pipes would loudly rattle. The sheets had spots on them. The room did not feel clean.
I liked the way the staff from the driver to the GM all worked very hard to make my trip a great one. The location in the gaslamp was great
I really did not like the small rooms..but the GM took care of everything and I left a very happy man
Location near shops bars food Staff very friendly cheerful and approachable Beautiful interior and rooftop views
Where it was location was nice
The hotel was old and the parking wasn't very good. The room was very small and had a noisy air conditioner.
Location Rooftop terrace 24 hour restaurant
An older hotel. Small rooms. Noisy A/C
Location Free pick up and drop off to airport Terrace with fantastic view
Room felt a bit claustrophobic Air con worked properly but very noisy
Location near Petco Park Near restaurants Easy to find Old building but full of character
Love the location and the valets were pretty quick
didn't expect the size of the room to be so small. We didn't like the elevator, it was small (and kinda hot)
Out side of the building looked cool
Rooftop lounge was awesome Good location Old feel to the hotel was nice...at first Restaurant in lobby was a nice touch (open 24 hours) Free wi-fi
The air conditioning malfunctioned during our stay and decided to make extremely loud noises that kept my girlfriend and I up a majority of the night. The gate elevators are cool at first, but get old when you think they are going to snap your fingers off every time they close. No help carrying bags to room, there wasn't even a cart to put your bags on to carry yourself. You have to pay for parking, although I think this is standard for the Gaslamp. Rooms NEED to be UPDATED! At a certain point the hotel needs to update things like the air conditioning, the heater (which you could burn yourself on), or the paint among many other things. Plain and simple, other hotels in the area are going for $20-$40 more a night. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra money to get a good night sleep at the very least.
Location, Location, Location. This hotel has a great location in the heart of Gaslamp. Within walking distance to everything downtown. Also the attached 24 hour restaurant, which handled room service had great food, as evidenced by the long lines (it stayed packed)
Everything was dated and needed to be updated. The overall quality was very poor. The room was tiny! It barely fit a queen size bed. There wasn't even a closet. Just a metal rack and a few hangers. The bathroom was also tiny. This is what passed as a suitable hotel room when the hotel was built like 80 years ago. Not today. The hotel only had two (antique) elevators that were very small and had long wait times. We often took the scenic stair route up and down 5 floors. Parking was a joke. $20 a day and a 10-15 minute wait to get your car (valet only). Would not recommend this hotel at all. Will return to sd, but will not stay here.
The Hotel was in a Great location. Easy access to everywhere in the Gaslamp district, lots of bars, restaurants, stores, Starbucks, banks, and PetCo Park were all within walking distance. About 20 minute drive over to the Hotel Del Coronado/Beach. Cute/Welcoming Lobby and Full Restaurant (which feeds the Room Service)24/7. The rooftop Patio was very nice. You can bring your own food and drink and sit up there, or order room service to the patio.
No Self Park at the Hotel. Valet = $20.00 USD/Day, (They dont tell you about this fee until you arrive). Manager said all rooms are the same size, about 9'x9' wide (Absolutely Tiny), No closet (just a rack hanging on the wall), No dresser, only about 3 drawers in the desk in the room. You have to ASK for them to clean your room daily, as they do not do it automatically. Bathroom was sooo small and compact that the bathroom door could not open all the way. No fan in the restroom. Water pressure was very poor. Water would go back and forth from hot and cold extremely fast while showering. Our water was actually shut off for about 2 hours during our stay and the Hotel Manager said the "Best he could do" was remove the $20.00 Valet fee for that day, with no other compensation but an "Im Sorry". He also had very poor customer service skills. I feel like there are much better deals downtown with better quality, and I will not return to this Hotel.
The valet parking, took long time
The location is amazing! We were able to walk everywhere easily. The rooftop terrace was a great touch.
The elevators are the old fashioned style and had the gate and door. That made it difficult when trying to get through with luggage.
