Cool hotel

We stayed four nights in a beautiful corner room on a trip visiting family and the sights of San Diego. Great location, very friendly and attentive staff, and outstanding amenities. A truly fine hotel!

Great Hotel, Reasonable Price

Beautiful, trendy place, comfortable bed...room wasn't read till a couple hours after when we should have been able to check in, but they made it up to us, and the wine mixer at 5 was nice. Also, not too bad of a walk to the bay. Classy place, great stay.

Christmas Outing

The hotel was awesome. The staff were genuinely polite. Even after having to work on the holiday. We travel often to San Diego. We have stayed at several hotels. This is by far the best one. Everything was GREAT!

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

This hotel is very well centralized. Everything is a short cab ride away. For the price of parking you can catch a cab. Which works out well if you plan to party it up.

Most amazing staff

I can't tell you enough about how great the staff was. From the valet always opening the door with a pleasant greeting to the front desk arranging something specia for our weekend celebration. It was our first time staying here but not our last. Thank you W for the most amazing weekend.

Pleasant short stay

This hotel location has a trendy interior design, standard amenities and a very friendly staff, and a short walk to the Gaslamp District. Pros close distance to downtown area (5 min cab/ 25 min walk); just a few miles from airport; lobby serves complientary cold fruit flavored water and snacks; friendly staff Cons room seemed outdated and dim, not as trendy as lobby; TV on fritz; and bedding was uncomfortable in particular comforter and pillows. This was a social visit so we didn't spend much time in room so while the cons aren't deal breakers, it would have given a higher rating.

Terrible birthday getaway

To begin with, we were given a bedroom with one bed when we had booked a double bed. They said all rooms with two beds were booked and completely disregard our reservation. The room was tiny but 4 adults had to cram in. The hotel card key didn't work. We went down to the lobby 3 times to get them to fix our keys. At the third time, the receptionist sent security with us "to show us how to use they key." The key didn't work for the security guard either! They finally said they would reprogram the key and they ony gave us one working key. The air conditioning didn't work in the room. Only the bathroom would get cool. We were hot and uncomfortable during the entire stay. Cleaning crew and hotel bartenders were nice but overall the room was a huge disappointment! It was clean but subpar amenities. Valet was $40 and they parked our car in an outdoor lot. We will never go back.
