    It’s a nice room but not worth the amount paid

    Wanted to check my bags to go to my meeting... since the room wasn’t ready ...

    I highly recommend staying at the Sonder. Location was perfect. Walking distance to anywhere you want to go in the downtown SD area. The fact I had my own stove, microwave, and washer was a huge plus for me. Can’t get that at most high end hotels!

    This is such a nice place in the middle of downtown San Diego! I really enjoyed my stay! I’m Definitely booking it again when I come back! Would’ve loved an elevator though but overal had a great experience

    It's location, it's overall condition, and it's amenities and furnishings. One of the most comfortable beds I've slept in.
