Would stay again
Wonderful hotel...customer service was excellent. Everywhere we went was within walking distance. Lots of places to eat and everyone was very friendly. Only bummer was having to pay for parking...expensive and you couldn’t come and go with the parking...I’ve never stayed at a boutique hotel, so I was surprised to see how small the room was, it worked out fine though, they have a fitness center and also offer a yoga class, but I just ended up going for walks to see more of downtown. I would definitely stay again.

First Time in San Diego
The room was clean and comfortable and since this was our first time to San Diego we weren't in the room much with the exception to sleep. The staff was very friendly and helpful whenever we needed something. The location was great, within walking distance of the Gaslamp Quarter. The bed could have been a little more comfortable but I have definitely slept on worse. If I had a complaint it would be that they only had valet parking at $38.00 a night. I had prepaid for the room but when I checked in I was informed there would also be a 14.57 Guest Service Fee and a 3.58 HPA fee, still not sure what that is. I had no other additional charges and even though I prepaid I still had a bill of 279.75 for 5 days. I went back and double checked and the information about these charges is on the Hotel.com website but it is not necessarily easy to find so be diligent and look at the additional details or extra charges link.

Lovely hotel, perfect location
The Sofia is in a perfect location to walk anywhere in downtown SD- the Gaskamp, Little Italy, Petco Park, Seaport Village. The rooms are small but beautiful and very clean- we were surprised with an upgrade this visit and had a much bigger room that was fabulous.

Happy visitors
Clean room, comfortable bed, not noisy. Friendly and helpful staff! Nearby restaurants - can walk to many within 3/4 of a mile to a mile. Very close to airport, Catholic church, USS Midway, mall (CVS) and zoo. Nice restaurant/bar inside hotel. We would stay here again!
