Awesome stay!
This was such a nice hotel! Just wish the pool was heated but no biggie.
Angel, us1 night trip
The Dana on Mission Bay, San Diego
Pricey for what is was. I didn’t use any of the amenities that I still had to pay for in the resort fee.

Very Good8.0
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.
James, us1 night trip
The Dana on Mission Bay, San Diego
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.
Michelle, us1 night trip
The Dana on Mission Bay, San Diego
My stay was great, my only complaint was I didn't stay long enough.
