Roof party on the 4th. We did not go, but the good view of the Bay was enough to have a standing-room-only crowd (much younger than us). Hotel is a good value - the location is great - quiet neighborhood (other than the airplanes) with easy
walking to many in-town activities. Valet-only parking is $22. Glass Door restaurant on 4th floor was a lovely spot to have our breakfasts. Would go back there again.
Washing machine was running late at night on the other side of the wall. Parking garage was right outside the door, so as we were trying to sleep doors were being shut and car alarms armed right outside the door. Overpriced restaurant on level 4.
Will not stay here again.
I arrived and the sent us to the wrong room. Booked a deluxe two queen, sent us to a single queen. That room was nice and upgraded. I called to get this fixed, I took them 25 minutes to find us another room and kept asking if we touched anything
in the first room as if they would not help us if we did. Finally they got us a room, however it was like an old m-6 or s-8. Not upgraded and definitely not deluxe. The hotel said they could help us no more as they had no more rooms and that we were lucky to get this one and because we paid though orb they would not compensate the price thus they stole and gave us less than we paid for.
The hotel staff was average upon checking in. Don't know if the hotel didn't have a pool but again I didn't bother to ask since it wasn't visible. The room was spacious and clean, it had a microwave & coffee maker which was broken. A bit too noisy
since all rooms face the inside hallway which is outdoor. Overall the price we paid was too much for what it was.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Long walk from hotel
Take a cab to Gas Lamp instead of taking your own car. Parking is expensive & we heard police are very active.
The staff was very nice there. The restaurant on the 4th floor has a beautiful view over looking the waters of San Diego. The drinks that were made were great. The shuttle driver who took us to the Dodgers vs Padres game was very nice and had a
good sense of humor. I will definitely stay again at Porto Vista.
