Score from 398 reviews Excellent
Room was quiet. Staff was responsive to minor problems. Food was very good.
Would have enjoyed wkend room service. But, there wasn't room enough for two of us to sit and eat if it had been available. We walked around the block each day and were greeted by requests for money each day. No threats or pressure but very sad.
Nice location, good staff, nice big rooms, lovely view! Nice spacious bathrooms
Expensive parking rates
Small restaurant but dinner special and food was excellent.
Service in the restauarant could have bee a bit faster.
Location is a little far in a less than good neighborhood. Train and traffic noise. Parking fee was very high. They should consider including as part of room rate.
Bathtub was a little dirty and aged. Needs a good bleaching. But otherwise room very very clean if not obviously an s.r.o. Converted to boutique hotel
Pleasant, helpful staff. Nice appearance of lobby and rooms. Good heating system-even temperature. Convenient to the US Grant which is where we were attending a wedding. Nice touch with robes and slippers. Good hair dryer.
Bathroom needed updating. Walls are very thin - can hear others in rooms next door and hallway. Lighting in bathroom is a bit harsh.
Friendly, competent staff Modern, clean rooms, Location, location, location!
No refrigerator in room
The first hotel I've stayed in that did not have a refrigerator or microwave. :/
Walking distance to Gas Lamp District; very nice room.
Free WiFi, Excellent choice of TV Channels, Friendly Staff, Clean Facilities
No in room refreshments or in building availability,
The hotel was located in a great place and was very nice, we went for my birthday and had a great time in San Diego in general. However, the staff was not friendly at all right down to the valet. I don't know if they were like that because we were young but our money is just as good as anyone else. So I had fun for Christmas and my birthday there but it was definitely not do to any type of hospitality.
The staff and our bathroom was not all the way stocked from the cleaning people.
nice location, free wifi, big room with very comfy bed. Upon check-in, the receptionist gave us 2 dollar drink vouchers which can be used at the bar.
Valet parking and the room gets noisy at night.
The room looked just like the pictures. Although it was a very pleasant visit, the street noise was heard and the walls are thin. Overall, I would definitely stay there again.
Location, Location, Location! Short walk to Horton Plaza and the Gaslamp.
No fridge in room, only there 1 night, not a big deal.
Despite the last minute booking, we were already being awaited. The hotel is situated perfectly in the San Diego downtown area which made going out in the evening very convenient. The staff was very friendly and a minor problem at departure was solved almost immediately.
The location close to the convention centre and the helpful staff were a bonus. The bed was very comfortable for a great night's sleep
Breakfast was nice but expensive.
The room was beautiful and very clean. The building has a lot of character and you feel like you're staying in a 4 star hotel. The resturant staff was friendly and you can tell they're all friends. Our room came with lots of extra goodies ear plugs and make up remover. Beautiful view of the ocean and downtown. Walking distance to seaport village, little Italy and great shopping. We want to move in permanently.
No pool or hot tub. Beds are too firm for my liking.
The location and price
Our stay was too short!
-Appreciated the cleanliness -The young lady at the front desk (the day I checked in) was very kind -They provide you with slippers and a robe -Great location...everything seemed walking distance. -About a 10minute walk to the gas lamp
-The ENTIRE weekend we had a problem with the keys! And it seemed that we were not the only ones. Our neighbors were standing outside of their room for a few minutes trying to open their door. I had the keys changed, and it was unfortunately after coming back at 2 AM. It happened again Saturday all day..took about 10-15 tries every single time! s
Location. Great staff. Very accommodating. Early check in.
The staff was very accommodating, professional and very friendly. The location in the Gaslamp district was very convenient.
The noise of the train horns staring early morning.
Everything was redone in a modern and beautiful manner. Comfortable beds.
They need to upgrade their t.v.'s
We had a great time. The location was fantastic for walking to most places downtown. When we checked in we were greeted by Ahmad. He is a gem. We felt welcomed every time we saw him and he always had an answer for our questions and a genuine smile.
Beds were a bit hard for me and my wife
The hotel is clean, stylish and comfortable!! Went with a group of friends to see a play at the Civic Theatre....as it turned out it was literally around the corner so the location for us was ideal! We walked to the gaslight district the next day and had a great breakfast at Café 222....then went shopping at Horton's Plaza....wonderful trip that we all agreed that we would definitely stay at this hotel again!!
Location. Decor. Staff. Especially Sarima? Zarima? At the front desk - went out of her way to solve a,problem for us. Gold star!! Oh, also 30 yards from the Airport Bus which comes every 15 minutes!!!
