A great location hotel in downtown San Diego. We enjoyed the proximity to everything interesting. We walked along the beautiful waterfront Seaport Village every evening. The staff was very helpful & accommodating. The room was clean & sufficiently large. We will return to this hotel.

Liked: Property conditions & facilities
Hotel had a lovely ambience and old world charm. The bar attached was very nice with great great bar staff. Room was fine with a balcony, albeit very dark with little natural light. Hotel operated with a ‘reduced housekeeping service’. This was explained at check-in although not what that actually meant…. We saw no housekeeping for the duration of our 3 day stay.
