    Reasonable price for a reasonable location. The staff was friendly and very helpful, and there are a number of good amenities included in the room fee (Internet, 24h business centre, yoga). The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Overall a very nice stay!

    Good location, clean and comfortable

    Expensive for the size of room provided. The safe in the room did not work. One of the lights did not work

    Hotel staff was professional and helpful, rooms were nice and clean, location was good for the city and the Convention Center. Taking all these into account, the price we paid was reasonable.

    I'm not sure what the justifiable/acceptable upper limit is, but I found the amount by which this hotel blocks credit cards when checking in a bit too much - in our case it was roughly the double of the expected bill, USD1500/person for 6 nights.

  • Couple
    9.2

    I enjoyed how clean the room was. It was really comfortable and I enjoyed the view I had of the city.

    The bathroom was a bit peculiar. There was no shower door to really close so the water kept splashing out onto the floor next to the shower, rather than staying inside the shower.

    Friendly staff, newly renovated clean neat rooms

    Our stay was lovely and the staff was so nice and sweet. The rooms are so nicely designed... Very modern and sleek.. Perfect location for hanging around the gas lamp.

    We thought paying to park was unfair.. Especially if we are driving in from out of town $30 a day plus tip sucked.

    Downtown location

    Some rooms may be noisy due to the poor quality of certain windows

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Friendly, competent & helpful staff. Rooms are updated and and well detailed/decorated.

    Room was a bit small and crowded; however, good value for the price. I was a bit surprised and disappointed that all parking is valet $30.00/Day....this was not disclosed (to my knowledge) when booked online. The valet parking may be standard business in downtown San Diego; but it would have been nice to know in advance.

  • Single

    I loved the small but very cozy room and the bed was ultra comfortable. The business center is well equipped and the lobby/common areas are serene and calming.

    The $30 parking fee was excessive and extra charges, although nominal, seemed unecessary.

  • Single
    10.0

    It was quiet, clean and I love the decor. It was perfect and beautiful, but the scenic view was of the bus parking lot and not very exciting. I f I was to stay for any other reason I would perfer the broadway side

    I had to return to my room because I left some items in the refrigreator,when I went down the hallway a staff from cleaning said b-y-e,it was over emphasized so it became starcastic. I just waved good bye and left, last impression is just as important as the first impression, it doesn't matter who you are! For every moment they are visible to the public the "monent of truth", should always be polite,courtesy and honesty.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    The location was ideal very close to everything we wanted to see. Our room, although comfortable was very small- just a bit more space would have added considerably to the amenity of the room.

    Room too small.

  • Single
    8.8

    After reading some on-line reviews, I was needlessly concerned about the location. It's located at the edge of the Gaslamp District on a nice street. Yes, the Greyhound terminal is a few doors down, and walking about the area it was possible to sight a few homeless people. Par for the course in any big city. I found the location excellent and the neighborhood seemed safe as I returned in the wee hours 2 nights in a row. The lobby, facilities and room were all quite nice. This is an older building that was extensively rehabbed a few years ago. The room itself was comfortable and in excellent condition; a bit on the small side, but only a problem if (a) you're a claustrophobe, or (b) you want a cot for a 3rd person. Excellent value.
