Great in every way except the half off breakfast deal. The deal is 1/2 off the normal price which is $30 for each person. You pay 15 for an 8 dollar breakfast at the most. Annoying way to overcharge for breakfast.

Clean and comfortable
Very comfortable and clean. Just what I needed for a last minute overnight stay. Resort fee a bit pricey, especially since I couldn’t use any of the amenities as I was just there for a quick overnight, but I enjoyed the stay.

DON'T STAY IN 506 !!!!!!!
check in process was simple. room smelled a little mildew or stale so we opened the window - no big deal there. unfortunately when we went in to shower to get ready for an event that night, we noticed there was poop left over in the toilet and stuck tot he side of the bowl. we called and were told someone would be right there to clean it - which they did in about 10 minutes. should have asked for another room, but were on a tight schedule to get to an event at 5:40. we left a message fro the manager to call us, but have yet to hear from anyone When we turned on the water in right vanity, there was a putred sulfur smell - not sure what the heck that was , but smell was awful...... there was a fridge in the room, however whoever installed it, must not have realized it left to right, as you could only open it about an inch because of being blocked by AC unit. Glad this stay was only overnight......in defense f the hotel, have stayed there numerous times in the past 10 years and never had a problem but this was disgusting

Amazing Stay - room needs a bit of updating
This property is beautiful and situated on Mission Bay. We had a Deluxe Bay View room that didn't disappoint! A nice balcony with furniture that we could spend our time on whenever we were in the room. This is a resort and has pool-side service which was excellent as well as a restaurant and gym. My only negative comment would be the age of the rooms. Most of the room had been updated but the kitchenette was very old, cabinet door pull came off in our hand, microwave just about dying and no real dishes or silverware (just plastic). Has a small refrigerator which was fine for our needs. Fantastic service everywhere we went on the property from check-in to check-out! We will return to this property.
