Nice hotel, parking a bit toughWe really enjoyed our stay at this hotel but it's ideal if you're taking a cab/Uber rather than driving. It's in a location where parking is a bit tough to find. There is overnight street parking available but you have to do some searching, which makes things a bit frustrating. However, the hotel ...

Amazing staff and a great location and price. The staff knows how to be attentive. From the front desk to the rooftop bar. Good vibe. Parking is way expensive but I guess it's like that everywhere at the Gaslamp. Great coffee in the room too. I shall come again.
