The Sofia Hotel

150 W Broadway, San Diego 92101 - Map
"Great Location, but could use a little refinement"
The Sofia hotel was a perfectly acceptable hotel, except for a few hiccups. It is located in the Gaslamp District in San Diego and is very close to all the action on 5th street. The rooms are very comfortable, and well appointed, however there were a few things that kept this from being a great hotel. 1) We are Expedia Gold members, and while we don't expect an upgrade, we do look forward to whatever the special amenity is, and choose VIP hotels for this reason. Upon check it, we were not acknowledged as members, and given the room we had paid for. Upon getting to the room, we realized that there was no special amenity. We called the front desk to ask if we missed something and they said no. They offered to send some chocolates, but we told them it wasn't necessary. This started the visit off on the wrong foot. 2) Parking is crazy expensive and you can see where your car is parked. They keep them outside, so when it rained, our car was filthy. For expensive valet, you expect to be parked inside. 3) Some of the lights in the bathroom were not working, but that was fixed quickly. 4) We called for extra coffee packets, and they told us to come to the front desk as the coffee was there. I had to tell the front desk that we weren't ready for the day, and asked to send some up. She said she would see what she could find They were able to find some, but I thought that response was extremely odd.

Hotel Z - A Piece of Pineapple Hospitality

521 6th Ave, San Diego 92101 - Map
"A must return! "
We were upgraded to a King Suite and requested a quiet room. They asked us if having a view was more important than having a quiet night. We chose quiet and although the view out our windows was of the brightly yellow painted wall of the next building, we slept like babies in the very comfortable king size bed and extremely quiet room.
