The bed was horrible
Loved that our pup was welcome
Did not like paying $36 a day for parking
Fine heritage hotel
Location is excellentl. Amenities of hotel are up to date and staff were helpful and cordial
Hotel is nearly a hundred years old. Room was on the small side but that is to expected.
I loved everything
Lovely hotel for a vacation to Downtown San Diego
It's location is perfect. Walking distance to pretty much everything you would want to do downtown; gaslamp, marina, horton plaza, etc. Room was perfect for me and my girlfriend. Staff was very accomodating.
Perfect recharge station
Nice lobby with friendly staff greeting us upon arrival. Lots of charm with short excerpts posted throughout highlighting the history of the building. Room was comfortable with all needed amenities for a place to stay. The purpose of our stay was the city. This room gave us a comfy pillow top mattress to rest and recharge each night with complimentary water keeping us hydrated. Workout facility was nice and hardly crowded during our stay. No complaints and would gladly stay here again.
Rooms were small. There was no view including limited sunlight through the window plus the "green" lighting made it so you had to turn every light in the room on when getting ready. Bathroom was small and no vent :-/. Closet didn't open all the way due to being obstructed by the bedside table (again, room was small). I'm being as honest as possible with these negative, but the purpose of the room was met and the pros far exceeded the cons during our stay.
Payment for services I did not ask for or use
I was surprised to have to pay a mandatory fee for services that I did not use or want. I thought that was very unfair of the hotel.
Nice place to stay
Amazing staff. Overall very nice hotel.
Dust. This is the the only minus.
Terrible! The worst hotel I've ever been in!
This is by far the worst hotel I've ever been in! The room, (505) was so small that I think they had to build the room around the bed. It was so small that the bathroom had to have a sliding door. I truly don't believe a normal door would be able to open / close. The air conditioning didn't work and the overall area seemed seedy. Numerous bailed bond companies with likely clients in the area. When I asked about the area the clerk advised, "Just stay on Broaday."
Top notch accomodations
The room was small, but comfortable. It had everything you could want, including a mini frig. The location was great. Within walking, or public transportation, to everything downtown San Diego has to offer.
The valet parking was expensive.
Not for those who seek privacy and quiet
The staff was friendly and accommodating, and the bed was comfortable.
The room was very loud. We were able to hear in the most precise detail what was going on in the room next to us (including our neighbor's conversations and television preferences). We ask to be moved, but the second room was equally as bad.
Very friendly staff, the location was perfect. Valet parking was great. The room was smaller than expected, but was well equipped.
