I loved the location of the hotel. It is close to several activities-Little Italy, Gaslamp District, and Seaport Village. Be prepared for daily parking fee -$30. Hotel us clean; Fitness room small but adequate.

Pleasant place to hang for ComicCon

We went to San Diego for ComicCon and stayed here. Was great to be on the shuttle route! Staff was pleasant, room was fine, though the bed was a bit lumpy. Wished the room had a fridge. Pool and spa were great after a long day at the con.

No hot water

No hot water in room! Had to call twice for maintenance. Maintenance staff were great but front desk staff was rude. No sympathy for the situation and no compensation was offered.

The hotel was great. They even gave us warm cookies at check in. The room was clean and comfortable. The pool area was relaxing. Also the security was evident and made for a feeling of safety.
