Lots of amenities on site, concierge service, there’s specific staff to guide us on how to get around the city and where the good restaurants are, close to almost all of the city attractions. Would stay here again.

Everything was great, I had just hoped to have a welcome brochure that gave instructions on check-out times, wifi, a list of amenities, etc; a list of what the traveler would be able to enjoy.

Staff & Rooms A+

Pros: Staff, room/bed, service.
Cons: A/C and/or ventilation in the pool and elevators.
Location: Walking distance to downtown/Gaslamp. So many restaurants and bars, including Petco Park (baseball).
The following staff need immediate recognition: Gustavo, Emilio and Connor. Each of them made our stay unforgettable and so pleasant. From the early check in, to baggage assistance, to the service in the restaurant, each of these men made us feel as valued guests. The rooms were very nice and clean, the bathroom/shower was beautiful and big, beds and pillows super comfortable, and it was close to Gaslamp/downtown. The only things we did not like was that the pool area was very stuffy (no a/c or ventilation was felt), as well as the elevators. Other than that, the hotel was really great. Will definitely come back and am recommending it to everyone!

New Year Eve in San Diego

Great experience. Great Location minute away from food, fun and great nightlife full of happy people having a good time. The resturant in the hotel is very good, & they provided a special New Years meal, great choices.

Nice hotel

Pros: The bedroom was private from the living area and the pull out couch. I really liked this because it allowed me to have privacy from my colleague
Cons: The service could be better. I called for more coffee and cream and had to call 3 times before receiving it.
Location: This hotel is in great proximity to the Gaslamp District. I attended a convention and commuted everyday via Lyft.
I am overall very content about my stay at this hotel. The people at the desk need to be trained however. They dropped the ball on several occasions when I called for additional coffee packs since I was staying for a week. I also asked for 2 more bottles of water in order to have enough water to take my medication since they have their own branded bottles of water that they offer complementary and the person at the desk seemed extremely agitated at me for asking. I had to explain to him why I needed the water in order to obtain the water, which I did not appreciate. The bar area has a wonderfully large couch with a television and a remote that you can use to change the channel if you so please. I really enjoyed using this space to collaborate with another colleague of mine (one that was not sharing a room with me).
