Beautiful and comfortable
This is a beautiful hotel and one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept on when traveling. It's in a great area as well. I always love Kimpton hotels!

Good3.0 / 5
Just ok- ugly area not dangerous just ugly
Overall my stay was just ok. I didn't like being downtown as the area is dirty and quite boring during the day. At night it's a big mid-30's Vegas style club scene. Parking was horrible. We parked across the street from palomar at a garage at $30/night. The hotel staff was nice and friendly but took forever to bring requested items to the room (blow dryer, ice bucket). The room and hotel feel very dark- the decor is a little modern, and dated. They need to replace some of the furniture as it appears a bit worn. For the same price I would've much preferred to stay at The Omni, Hilton or Westin.

Modern hotel in the heart of gaslamp
Such wonderful guest service (beyond what you'd experience anywhere else at the same caliber of hotel). The pool & gym ammenities were also very great!

Poor1.0 / 5
Worst Hotel in San Diego
This is by far the worst hotel in the area. I frequent hotels in this area for business purposes and thought I might try this one. Unfortunately, I don't have one positive thing to say. Most likely because the front check in staff was rude and completely disrespectful. I was struggling to get in the door and they just sat there talking without any offer for help. When I asked them for help, they became obviously annoyed that wi was interrupting their personal phone call and conversation. The room? Dirty and nasty. Honestly not any better than a motel 6. Save your time and money and go somewhere else. Caveat Emptor

Excellent4.0 / 5
Very nice hotel, however we were placed next to a room full of young children which started making noise and running the hallway at 6am. When paying almost $500 for a room for a night with my wife, it was definitely not relaxing hearing kids fighting, crying etc.. They should have some type of policy of placing families with young children on specific floors so as not to disturb other customers. Other than this experience it is a very posh hotel in the gaslamp area with lots to do (music, dancing, food, shopping).
