We loved our stay!
Absolutely loved the Bristol hotel! Only downfall is you must valet your car for an extra fee per day otherwise there isn't any parking. The service was exceptional. And our room was adorable and really clean. The beds and linens were super comfy too. We had a prob figuring out the ac and they sent someone up very promptly to fix the situation. We also need more hangers and robes again were helped very promptly. The next Morning we asked for some more coffee and mugs and were brought all of our needs in a timely manner. Throughout our stay we were greeted with nothing but smiles and kindness. Ive already recommended this place to friends and would definitely stay here again. If you’re looking for a fun chic hotel near Gaslamp, this is your place. You can literally walk to everything! Thanks Bristol hotel!

Very Good 8.0
Great but expensive add-ons
It was awesome! Great location, super comfy good service. The only problems were that parking was a bit expensive ($40/night) and took a while to come, even when we tried to request our car in advance. Also, despite saying our breakfast was free, it wasn’t. Nor was it really worth the $10/person.

Good 6.0
Have the amenities you list
The Hotel staff was amazing and accommodating. The property is actually fairly North but not too far from areas like Horton Plaza. Paying almost $40.00 to park (the lot across the street is the same) is crazy. The Hotel Clearly advertises Lounge / Bar ; when you arrive there is no bar. When asked the Desk informed me that " it wasn't making enough money" well you got my booking believing I could enjoy a cocktail before heading out. Also they have a Coffee machine in the lobby that is supposed to make "Custom Coffee Drinks" It is slow and pointless; after waiting 15 min in line my drink came out with out milk/cream. When I informed the staff they said nothing but opened the machine and tapped on something. Closed the lid and moved on.

Amazing hotel !
The hotel it's slef was great and so was the costumer service, once we got up to our room they immediately called to ask if everything was ok. Love the decor and the tidiness of the hotel. Only thing is I wish they had more water refill stations not jsut on the first or last floor.
