Urban Boutique Hotel

1654 Columbia Street, San Diego 92101 - Map
"Right in the middle of everything!"
The hotel is NOT fancy, at all. But it is clean, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I WILL stay there again when I go back to San Diego. It is in the middle of Little Italy. One block away there are so many awesome restaurants that there is no way you can try them all without spending a month there! The hotel rents bicycles for $10 A DAY! Every Saturday there is a fantastic farmer's market, just down the street. The breakfast is simple, but good: fresh fruit, yogurt, mini muffins, croissants, breads & granola. The only drawback is the construction right next door. And by right next door, I mean right outside my window - so from my side of the hotel there is zero view. They start work every morning at 7:00 a.m. BUT - the positive aspect of that - it got me up and out to do my sightseeing in a timely manner. :-) I did not go on my vacation to sleep! It is well within walking distance to any and all of the transit stops that you need to get everywhere, including Tijuana. Again - not fancy. If you are looking for luxury, this is not your place. But if you are looking for a good place to lay your head at night, that is close to everything, this is the place you want to stay.

"Lovely hotel with helpful staff "
We stayed in 3 different hotels in San Diego during our holiday and this was the best. We really like the location in the middle of the mariner but close still to the city. Access to some great and well priced seafood restaurants. The staff were also very helpful and accommodating which made our stay even better. I would definitely stay again.

La Jolla Shores Hotel

"Great location. Only a few steps from the beach. "
Overall this hotel was nice. The location made all the difference and a rental car isn't necessary. The rooms were clean however they need to replace mattresses as they are worn down and not too comfortable. The pillows are feather (if you like that kind you'll love them) but they were somewhat of a nuisance to try to sleep on. All the staff were great and friendly but on two occasions we were shorted cash on our change from the bill. It was only a few dollars but that doesn't make it ok and on TWO occasions none the less.

"Great location close to the zoo"
We chose the Laflayette due to its location close to the San Diego zoo, it took us 5 minutes to drive from the hotel to the zoo. The hotel staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Facilities were great as was the food at Hope 46.

"We had a bay view room."
The 1000 or 2000 buildings are the bay view rooms. We had 1110 which was great! Lots of room. I would not want a lower number in the 1000 building, due to the park! The hotel curves around and you're looking at the bay but also get to see the parking lot and restrooms from the park if you are at the lower end of the 1000 building.
