Renaissance San Diego Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The first thing we noticed was the hotel was under construction. That wasn't mentioned to us at the time of booking. The entire check-in and lobby area had been adjusted for the construction. Our room ac unit was incredibly loud, but helped as our neighbors were having a big party two nights in a row. The front desk staff were incredibly kind and helpful. Parking is $48 per night which is the norm in the downtown area, but there is no hotel self-parking available - so plan on that additional expense. The hotel is also convenient for nearby restaurants.

Beautiful hotel obviously in the midst of some renovations. The room was very nice unfortunately they put a family with a crying baby in the next room which kept us up most of the night. Also upon check out I was rather surprised that the woman who printed out our bill never asked if we had a pleasant stay or if everything was all right.

Friendly staff, clean and in a good location. Very pretty decor. Free breakfast would have been nice

Great staff! We had an issue with one of our rooms not being cleaned properly but the Front Desk was able to help handle the situation. Short Uber drive from main restaurants and bars.

Enjoyed my stay, staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Room was clean and welcoming. All and all a good experience

Check in time was at 3 PM I checked in at 6 PM, my room was not ready until 8 PM check-in staff offered me a $30 drink voucher for the inconvenience, after a 4 hour drive because of traffic all I wanted to do was get into my room to nap and could not do that. Front desk kept saying it was out of their hands because the rooms were not clean very bad communication between front desk and housekeeping... Hire more housekeepers for Christ Sake!!!

My hotel room did not have a remote control to the t.v. & the air conditioner didnt work that well. It was set at the lowest temperature of 65 degrees & did not even cool up the room at all. Plus it was the summer. Not too comfortable.

Not a bad hotel to stay at. Parking is $45 per night. No executive lounge. We stayed 2 nights but our room was not cleaned for the second day. Front desk offered $30 at the restaurant but we had already eaten. Then offered breakfast vouchers but we had those because no executive lounge.

Great location, friendly employees. Not crazy about extra charges for so many things like a refrigerator, microwave, or WiFi. Otherwise great place!

No wifi in the rooms without being charged an arm and a leg, no breakfast buffet/coffee provided(yet small no name hotels do provide this), overpriced meals, charged to print boarding pass for flights

The only negative thing about this hotel is that the internet access in the rooms is per pay. However, there is free internet in the lobby, and it was fast and reliable. Other than that, it's a very comfortable hotel within a few blocks from restaurants etc.
