We stayed here during a short trip with the family to San Diego. It was a great location, we walked the waterfront to get dinner one night. We enjoyed the view from our room overlooking the water. What I appreciated the most was all the amenities. It was great to be able to gab a drink at the pool while...

The location is soooo good really. The hotel is wonderful. Good rooms with great view. Again the location is really good. The room service is good too, they have good food with lots of great sauces. I think it's one of the best hotels in San Diego.

The front desk staff was welcoming and accommodating. There were no rooms available of the kind we wanted (king bed, high floor) but they switched us to one at check in, with an all around view. Plush bathrobes and slippers were sent up too. Climate control was very effective and plumbing was tops. Love the Speakman Anystream showerhead, and it...

I stayed here last month when it just so happened that the NUKS (National Union of Kuwaiti Students) conference was in town. On first impressions it was a little overwhelming as I am not over-exaggerating when I say there was 100s of young men in every nook and cranny of the hotel. Unfortunately after 2 nights of noise and disturbances...

Wow, I don't even know where to start. Stayed here two other times and loved it just as much as the most recent stay. The location is beyond amazing! Right on the water, across the street from the Gaslamp Quarter (tons of restaurants, bars, shops, etc.). It's not too far from the airport, $15 Uber ride, and it is literally...

Stayed for about a week in a room with the bridge and Dole factory view. Check in folk were hospitable and helpful.
