San Diego beautiful as always...
I tried to check in earlier then their schedule, room was not ready!, but very welcoming. The location was very appealing. Due to COVID 19 things aren’t as normal, and the way we’re custom to!, here our beloved country. There’re hidden cost, I would suggest to be up front when travelers are booking, and paying on line. My family n I enjoyed it a lot...

Very nice hotel
Had a one night business stay. Hotel was very nice. Room was huge and the bed was very comfortable. The Gas Lamp Quarter was close by and within 10 minutes walking distance The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Parking a bit pricey but secured. Definitely staying here again.

Awesome but
It was great! BUT it would have been good to know they will charge you $40 daily on parking fees but otherwise it was great.

The best of traditional and contemporary
The ambience of the hotel was fabulous. The decor was rich, opulent and attention to detail down to the furniture styles. Traditional is beautiful and romantic. So glad we stayed there !!! The rooms were a generous size and loved the dressing table. If you like quiet ask for a room on the pool side not the trolley. The gym state of art contemporary. The best of two worlds.

Exceptional 10.0
Great upgrade
A broken lock was all the staff needed to upgrade us to a palatial “executive suite” on the 17th floor with views of the ocean, Coronado, Mexico, and down town San Diego. A wonderful place to stay as it is, this service made a very special experience for us.

Old school feel, with modern comforts.
The decor of the hotel will not be for everyone. It truly is a step back in time. Old wall paper, old finishes, styles that might remind you of your grandmothers house. One thing I loved was that they still have all the message boxes behind the reception area. Slots that have room numbers, where I’m sure paper slip messages used to sit waiting for guests. That said, there are many that this style and feel are not going to work for, especially on a “fun” trip for younger people. The rooms were very clean, no “old smells” at all. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. The location is awesome for access to all over downtown and marina area but it is noisy. We were on the 16th floor and could hear a lot of street noise. Must have been above the train too, because constant buzz/ding throughout day and night.
