Nice hotel, convenient location downtown.It's impossible to not have a great stay in San Diego. The Sofia was a positive experience overall.

Having said that ...

Traditional Hotel neighboring Balboa ParkFulfilled expectations as to facilities quality and location. Rooms offer ample space, and decor is attractive in the traditional sense.
