Amazing value for the money!
We were thoroughly impressed with the Bristol. Having never heard of it we took a chance because of their close proximity to the gaslamp and their low rate, and we were not disappointed. Definitely best downtown value for the money!!

Good but not great.
Hotel was ok but not worth the price. You are only paying extra for the location (near Gaslamp Quarters). Bed was comfortable, room was clean & updated, and good cleaning service. However, bathroom in pocket door was difficult to slide open and close so we stopped trying. We just left it open every time we used the restroom. They were short staffed for a Saturday and took them over 30 minutes to get our car out of valet parking so we didn't park it there any longer. We used the public parking across the street for just about the same price. There is no onsite restaurant or bar, however, they do offer continental breakfast in the am and drinks (happy hour) in the pm from 5p-7p.

Fantastic Hotel
I will stay at this hotel again and would recommend it. I’m very particular about where I stay. Rooms have to be immaculate, staff friendly, informative and educated. This hotel far exceeded my expectations.

There was a cockroach about three inches long in our room. After three calls to the front desk, one electronic service request and twenty-five minutes, a housekeeper arrived and was unable to remove the insect. Maintanence arrived another five minutes later and removed the bug in a glass. My two young children were crying and freaking out! Front desk never apologized or mentioned it upon check out. Disappointing
