Close to Old Town shopsThe hotel was very close to all the shops and places to eat. We went on the Hop on Hop off bus which was extremely informative for us being tourists from overseas. Everyone was very friendly and I would recommend Old Town to anyone visiting San Diego.

Convenient and close by to gas lamp district and even Petco park. Room was comfortable and spacious. As with most hotels in the area, you have to pay for overnight parking which is a bit pricey.

Central location, historic hotel, adequate serviceValet was good, service was good, hotel was very clean. The single room was small, but that's understandable considering the hotel is a hundred years old. The rooftop deck and view were quite nice. Great view of the city.

Great hotel, convenient location, amazing staffThis is a really nice hotel. It's a little dated but in a good way, it was an old world charm. The staff is super nice and friendly and helpful. It's well priced and the location is convenient if but its on the outskirts of the Gaslamp so there isn't much in the surrounding couple blocks.
