I recently took a cross-country, 14 day trip from Arkansas to San Diego with my family of five and this was the best hotel I booked on the entire trip. It is a truly a gem in downtown San Diego.

We want to emphasize the very good service. The front desk was there for any questions for us. The included breakfast was ok. From what we saw San Diego hotels seems expensive generally, so the price level here is ok too.
