This was an excellent hotel and our main reason for choosing it was its location. Not only a great location but very clean and great service too. The main lobby was extremely spacious with a piano, clean hallways, clean rooms and bathrooms. The actual room was well furnished with a comfortable king bed. Absolutely no complaints except for the food and drinks selection...
We had a couple drinks at the bar but their draft beer selection is lacking (only Bud Light?!?!) so I went with the local Stone beer which was good. The breakfast wasn't bad but nothing to write home about. On the following days we just went to Coffee Bean Tea Leaf. We did not eat lunch or dinner there judging by the breakfast and we looked at a menu.
Like I said above, location is everything. You are in walking distance to the Amtrak (which we took in), the bay, Horton Plaza, Gaslamps, Seaport village, basically everything. For anything else I would recommend the Old Town Trolley Tours to see the rest of the city.
Highly recommended __IF__ you head over to the Gaslamps for food and drinks since there are plenty in that area!
