I was on club level and it was not good. The food both for breakfast and In the early evening was not good. Choices were boring and not good. Not worth the money.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
    • Disliked: Amenities

    The view from the room was phenomenal. We had a room that was looking out towards the bay and the airport on the 18th floor. It was amazing! It is also in a great location. Could not beat the centrality to San Deigo. The bummer was that we paid $60 additional for the club continental room (free breakfast/snacks/wine/beer) and was not notified until we arrived that it was not open and we were credited $60 to eat at any of the hotel's restaurants...except we all know how far $60 goes at hotels. We ordered room service for breakfast expecting it to be on dishes and glassware and instead, it was boxed and delivered in a brown bag...and yet we were still charged $20 for the service fee and delivery.. I should have known they were taking covid precautions, but not once did they explain the difference beforehand only until after when they already had charged your card. Long story short, get the water view room, don't get the club experience...

    Arrived late, person at front desk told me I was going to be locked out of my own room that I paid for unless I gave him a $700 deposit. My bank was frozen from traveling and he did not care at all. The next morning, a much nicer person let me put down a cash deposit that was less than half of what the original guy quoted! No maid service but they walk into your room at 8 AM...without even announcing themselves or cleaning up of any sort!
