Keep looking. There are not many floors that are refurbished. We were lucky to be on top floor but that was an exception. Wait a few more months. Also Courtyard is better located by a few blocks into Gaslamp.

Beware of the homeless. Most will not bother you but don't make eye contact. Short walk to Horton Plaza to catch the hop on hop off trolley. The... More
