Don’t leave anything in room You won’t get it back
The staff and location are good. The Valet parking is great. The day we got there they had event on the top floor which was nice for the partiers but not for the sleepers. We didn’t stay more than a night. It is close to restaurants and Little Italy. The bed was old and the toilet kept flushing by it self every so often. To top it off my wife left her blouse in the hotel and remembered till the following day. I calles and they said it was not there and we are more than sure she left it there. Sad to have an experience like that and to have a honest cleaning staff which doesn’t steal from the clients. I was going back but after this no longer.

I've stayed here a few times and am a regular business visitor to San Diego. I stay at three different hotels. Porto Vista is cool with their Glass Door bar with amazing views, location, and amenities. i've also stayed for couples weekend and family visits at this hotel and never been disappointed. It is comfortable, clean and pretty quiet. Best time to stay here is on 4th of July as you can see three different fireworks displays occurring from the rooftop bar out on the water.
