Stay Here
Large room, contemporary furniture, very comfortable bed and great sitting area. Staff were terrific, very knowledgeable about the area and amenities. Having the free coffee and filtered water for water. Bottles was a very touch. We were fortunate to be able to check in early and get a late checkout. Great location near the major attractions, and on public transportation, $2.50 to ride the bus to the airport. Would definitely stay here again.

The room was comfortable and clean. The only problem was to noisy outside the room and the parking so expensive. Overall, nice stay.

Jessica, us2 night trip with friends
Good 6.0
Stayed 2 nights here and it was fine. The room was a lot smaller than what the picture made it seem like but the room was clean! The staff was also super friendly and helpful! It was $39 per night to park your car there because they had no self park option. So that was excessive. There was a parking lot across the street but it was always closed when we went to try to park there.

Fair 4.0
Hotel room or sauna?
The air conditioning in our room did not work (and it was a very warm and humid weekend in San Diego). We spoke with the front desk several times, and the facilities worker even came to our room and tried to help. He tweaked the thermostat/controls a couple times and said it was fixed -- it wasn't. Needless to say, it was very uncomfortable in our room. On the way out, we spoke with the front desk - again - and the response we got was, "OK. Thanks."
