I didn't like that their was no pool or spa. Also you can hear the other people next to you the wall needs to be better
New bedding, fixtures, etc. Lovely decor, great location.
No fridge or microwave, but plenty of nearby food options.
Nice decor. Comfortable Bed and nice linens.
Starting to look a bit dated. A bit rough around the edges. Noise from the street is bothersome. They provide earplugs, but it's not enough. Need double pain glass to solve the issue, I think.
Free upgrade, nice bathroom. Great location
Staff not overly eager to please. Had to wait unreasonable amount of time before checked in. There was no valet or bell boy to help with luggage when I arrived at 2am. The desk clerk was also the parking attendant. Thought he should have comped us breakfast for the long wait. Hotel was clean and beautiful.
We had a great large room. Hotel restaurant was great with a 50% reduction on dinner entrees for guests. Location was good - on edge of gaslight neighbourhood. Value for money was excellent.
No fridge in room despite a space for one.
Very good location at walking distance to gaslamp and very close to port and to Little Italy. Easy valet car park.
Special thanks to Ahmad in the front desk
No fridge in the room
Wonderful staff - friendly and helpful - comfortable beds, great location - walking distance to great restaurants. Will definitely stay there again.
Would have loved a coffee service for guests. Coffee maker in the room didn't make enough coffee for all of us.
Very good location.
Soundproofing is so bad, it is almost impossible to sleep while neighborhoods are talking or watching TV.
I have stayed at numerous hotels in San Diego. I had not stayed at the Bristol before but it will now be my preferred hotel. The rooms are roomy and well appointed with plush bedding, linens and even a robe. It's a short walk to the gas lamp district and little Italy. On check we were surprised to get $2 drink vouchers in the bar.
There's some train noise that might upset light sleepers but not me. The hotel provides ear plugs but we didn't need them. Many hotels are a bit noisy, especially in the gas lamp district (late night revelers). But this is far enough away that that was not a problem.
Great location in downtown San Diego; I attended the Paul McCartney concert and this hotel was perfect. Great food in restaurant and the room was quiet and elegantly decorated. I loved the bed sheets! Hotel staff was very helpful; I especially liked how they smiled and greeted you. It made my stay with my girlfriend that much more special. This is my 2nd time this year to stay at the hotel and do it again later this year for another ladies weekend!
The room was nice and clean
Waiting 30 mins for car after check out, valet very unorganized. Clerks did not verbally explain $100 deposit at check in, amenities not worth price of room...no pool, no spa, no view, no complimentary breakfast.. Only a $2 drink ticket...
Best location in down town dan diego. Great service.
A little nose from the street - but the hotel provides complimentary ear plugs.
Parking Fees; Bathroom was too congested; The hotel looked new but the rooms had kind of an old-like feeling to them.
Extremely friendly & helpfull staff
Walls aren't soundproof, you can hear whats going on in the the rooms next to you, noise from the street at night was frustrating & it was a major issue for us Ear plugs are provided though
The room was very presentable.
Clean room Nice furniture,,,modern,,, Great location
Didn't have a fridge
The staff woke us up before 8 am on a Saturday to let us know we were being too noisy the night before and three different rooms complained. Our room was in front of the elevators and had no neighbors on one side. When we asked the staff to give us more information about the complaints they kept giving us different information and threatened to "evict us." They essentially lied about how many "rooms" complained and when. On top of that they gave us a bizarre story saying people could hear us talking through the walls so they were given the ok to call us at 7:45 am. We were sleeping, not talking. We were in the rooms a total of 30 minutes the night before freshening up to go out. Also, I booked two rooms together but we were on different floors. I would not stay here again. The staff is unprofessional and unfriendly.
Nice renovated rooms and bathrooms, free wi-fi.
Parking should be free for guests. No free breakfast as most hotels have.
Modern flair with great character Clean Great service
May need a new HVAC system. AC was a little noisy.
This is a very nice hotel. The room was spacious and had newer furniture. It is in a good downtown location.
No refrigerator in the room. No courtesy shuttle (not a bug issue). On site dining options a bit pricey.
The 50% off at the restaurant was amazing. Room was clean and comfy, service good.
Room service breakfast didn't seem uniform in portions from day to day
