Thanks for the all the way around good review, Martha W. Glad the staff was great and you had a comfortable stay. That's what it's all about. Come back anytime!
Really cool hotel right in the middle of Gaslamp. Rooms are nicely decorated with new finishes. Great pool area too. Gym was non-existent and needs updated. Overall a great place to stay especially if you can get a good rate (which I did)
Thanks for the review, Anthony A. Glad you got a good rate and enjoyed your room and the pool lounge. We can recommend other gyms in the area if you're looking for full amenities. Just let us know next time! Justin- GM
Stayed here for 1 night with my 2 children. It was a great location within walking distance of a lot of attractions. The rooftop pool was very nice, well maintained and was not crowded when we were there. The staff, especially at the front desk and valet, was very friendly and attentive. I would definitely stay there again. The only downside, which is typical of all hotels in that area, is the parking situation. Valet is really your only option and it's $49/night.
Thanks for the great review, Marie F. I'm really happy to see you and your kids enjoyed the stay. We hope to see you back again soon. Justin Gentry- GM
Our trip was amazing! Anna and the whole staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. My GF and I decided to fly down to escape the fires up north, to give her a a much needed celebration for her B-Day.
Upon arrival, we were greeted by Anna, who helped us sort out some confusion we had booking third party. Immediately she apologized for the confusion and helped us get settled in a great room. She offered a vast variety of places to eat, as well as offering to organize an in-room massage (which we ended up not doing due to staying on Coronado for too long).
After i ventured off early in the morning to get my GF flowers Anna again was able to make us feel special and sent us a vase to keep the flowers alive. The following day she sent a small bottle of wine and cupcakes to celebrate mt GFs birthday.
All in all the coffee was great, and stay was nice, but Anna and the staff really made the stay.
Would happily visit again
Thanks for the great words about Anna, Michael N. Glad to see she made such a memorable trip for you and your GF. She is a true gem and we'll be sure to recognize her for great service. Come back anytime! Justin GM
Great location in the Gaslamp district so plenty of dining & drinking options nearby if you want to stray from the bar on the pool deck, the whole hotel has an upscale but relaxed atmosphere and nice touches like the complimentary evening drinks and breakfast coffee made our stay very pleasant. We made use of the free hotel bikes to explore Balboa park. The one caveat is the eye-watering rates for overnight parking $50.00 a night is extortionate, even when the valet service is excellent.
From the moment you step out of your vehicle, you'll know this is one of the more upscale hotels around. The staff was very amicable and professional during the check-in process. The interiors were well-designed and exuded a sense of luxury. Arguably the most significant selling point of this hotel was its proximity to all the major tourist destinations in the Gaslamp District. It's only a short walk to Petco Park, The Convention Center, and a multitude of some of the best restaurants and bars that San Diego has to offer.
I couldn't agree with you more, Alex Q, our location is prime! Glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope you come back soon. Justin-GM
