    This hotel was perfect for our business needs - clean, comfortable and felt safe being there as a female traveler even with all the guys in the group. Staff were great at any hour - another factor not even 5-star hotels can get right.

    Hallo, wie steht es denn mit Parkmöglichkeiten in der Innenstadt von San Diego oder gibt es Busverbindungen vom Hotel zur Innenstadt? Wir wollen gerne eine Stadtrundfahrt buchen, aber die starten ja alle in der Innenstadt. Freue mich über Antworten :) Danke!!

    Uber is the best answer - there are a lot of cars and it's a very economical service. Probably $5-10 US to get a ride to downtown.
