A Trip to the Zoo
Great hotel, awesome location, friendly staff and quick valet. All around this was a great hotel to stay in for a quick family weekend getaway. Walking distance to “Little Italy”, great authentic Italian restaurants, local bars and right across for the San Diego marina. The only down side was that since this hotel is connected to a restaurant your able to add your food bill to your room, unfortunately someone had breakfast and gave our room number and it was added to our total check-out bill but it was quickly cleared up before we left and taken off our bill. So once again great place to stay would recommend to anyone.

The staff was my favorite part. Everyone I spoke to was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Halfway through my trip I found out the coffee in the room was complimentary and because I didn't realize, they sent me extra K cups to make up for it.

Great Little Italy hotel
Great hotel, in a good area. Little Italy is cute and fun to explore, and there is easy access to public transportation to get around to all the attractions and the airport. The hot tub was amazing! It may be a little warm for some people but that’s how I like it. The pool is heated so is also very nice. The staff is great and hotel condition was great, we will definitely stay here again on our next trip to San Diego.

Great hotel, great location and everyone was nice. Valet is a bit steep given it's your only option for parking (off street parking is also an option but pretty much impossible to find) otherwise no complaints

Beautiful hotel, but won’t come back!
Check-in was bizarre. The girl didn’t seem to want to help us. When we got to the counter, she asked for my name, ID and debit card. She then told me to insert my chip. I was confused because I already prepaid for the stay. She asked for a receipt. As I was searching for the confirmation email.. she then said that I paid for my hotel and my sister didn’t. She confused the both of us and my sister wasn’t checking in until later that evening. Mind you.. she already asked for my name and ID. She just stared at me with a blank and awkward expression. Then she asked me to reinsert my card and didn’t even bother telling me why and then I asked. They charge $150 for incidentals. That’s fine.. but at least give the customer the proper information. We finally got to the room. It was nice and clean, but there was a lack in service. The Pacific Standard Kitchen was terrible. The service was horrible. It was hard to get anyone to help you really. They try to avoid eye contact with you. It was confusing. We tried to have a nice dinner with 11 ppl. They took forever to even bring out the food. We had to leave for the next venue.. so we requested our food to go. That was another headache. They didn’t even have all of the food ready. They charged us gratuity for having more than 6 ppl. We were never even served at the table. They didn’t deserve that “forced” tip from each person. Overall, this was by far the worse experience at a hotel. The only positive was the valet service.
