We had a nice stay in the downtown area of SD. It's a very pretty hotel, centrally located to restaurants, transportation and Horton Plaza (trolley). Yes, if you are not used to a big city and the many homeless it might make you feel uncomfortable but I wanted the big city feeling for this part of our trip. The second...

In a classic older building. I had a gorgeous corner room, with city and bay views. Very comfortable and tasteful. Quiet - slept like a baby! Service was exceptional, with turndown, chocolates, and even an elephant "towel origami" on the bed to greet me my last night. That's a first! This is a little far from the convention center and...

Came down to San Diego for a spontaneous day trip, ended up staying! Staff was exceptional! Claire Tilton at the front desk went above and beyond! The historic factor of the hotel was a huge plus, rooms were very clean, not large but comfortable. The only thing they need to do is make some of the king rooms come with...

The hotel was in great shape for being as old as it is. There was a slight smell in the room however other than that the bed was comfortable and the room I was in was well kept. The restaurant on the first floor was fantastic. I usually don't eat at restaurant that are located within hotels because usually the...

Dear DetourX, Thank you for staying with us and your wonderful feedback! I myself actually was drawn to this unique Courtyard Marriott property because of the historic character and the full service restaurant in the Lobby. I myself typically think the same as you- that hotel food typically can be subpar and overpriced. However Marriott allows our executive chef to...

When we eventually found the right Courtyard, the welcome was warm. This hotel is housed in an old bank and has kept many original features, both inside and out. The lobby has a breathtaking Italian Romanesque ceiling. Our room was spacious and clean, with a view over the city which would have been attractive had we not overlooked ugly tanks...

Come experience the perfect hotel for your San Diego stay. Housed in a 1920's historic landmark building, the reinvented Courtyard San Diego Downtown welcomes guests with the sophisticated comfort of modern accommodations, while embracing the character of the distinguished former financial institution. From the moment you step through the revolving front doors, you will be whisked away to an inviting and intimate space to unwind, gather your thoughts, or share a laugh and a beverage with friends. Exquisite remnants of the former bank grace the interior of our hotel and mix with a fresh, contemporary style. Whether you are here for business or pleasure, you can expect impeccable service and an unbeatable location in the Gaslamp Quarter, offering hundreds of dining and entertainment options. We are conveniently located in the heart of the business district, walking distance to the waterfront and San Diego Convention Center, and minutes away from the San Diego International Airport and the world-famous San Diego Zoo. We are also just steps away from the San Diego Trolley which connects downtown to Mission Valley, Chula Vista, and the International Border. Reinvented with fresh decor and design, our guest rooms and suites provide superior accommodations for individual travelers, business groups, event groups and families. Each of our rooms offers luxury bedding, free high-speed Internet and microwaves, refrigerators and safes in every room.
