Very good stay. Very unique hotel. Charming. Excellent bar and restaurant.

Great location in Gaslamp district! Historic hotel beautifully maintained. Tip- $30 overnight parking available within walking distance...avoid hotel $45 valet fee. Would definitely stay here again!

We had a phenomenal experience there! The hotel was beautiful!

Great location in the Gas Light district. Numerous places to eat and drink within a couple of blocks. There is a Starbucks one block away and a grocery store just a couple of blocks away.

super beautiful experience beautiful location and amazing friendly stuff!

Great staff. Great location. Room was spacious and very comfy

Not friendly staff, very expensive parking! Old decor. But confortable overall..

Great choice! The building is stunning, with so much history behind it. Also it is conveniently located near the main streets of the Gaslamp district with lots of food and drink options for all different ages/tastes. We were only there for one night but everything was clean and comfortable. Just a note - parking valet is $42 a night so we drove a couple blocks down for $10 per every 12 hours.

Had a wonderful time at this hotel. Loved having a balcony room and being able to ppl watch from the fourth floor. They were very kind to our group of people. I really appreciate them holding on to our bags while we went o the Giants game too. My only issue was that the bathtub didn’t drain very well and our friends had the same issue with their room. Other than that, beds are comfy, room are clean, and their AC is tops! Stay here, you will not regret it!

Nice, cozy and quiet hotel in middle of all interest points.

We had a wonderful time. The Horton staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms and facilities were clen and well maintained.

We absolutely love this Hotel!!! it is old but it has a lot of character and history. we will definitely return

This was our first stay at the hotel. My husband and I were very happy with our accommodations. Love the hotel and will surely stay here again!

We stayed for our Honeymoon, the room and decor was excellent. The location was perfect, and the Staff was amazing. We would definitely stay there again.

Great place, would stay here again, and recommend to my friends

Loved it. Staff was fantastic. Loved the old furniture and the overall vibe of the place. The whiskey bar was great. Good times!

The hotel was an older style place that we looked forward to staying in. Even the elevator had an interesting window to a couple rooms. Thought that was cool. Got into the room and it appeared nice. Fireplace, balcony, and comfortable bed. Really liked the main room. Unfortunately neighbors could be heard talking lightly. The shower drain did not keep up at all and you ended up filling the tub with water while showering. Friends stayed next door, they had same problem with shower drain but theirs was worse. The last day they had trouble turning on the water and once on could not turn off. Maintenace guy worked hard to beat the tub from over flowing. Other friends moved rooms twice. once because of the smell, the second time because the toilet came back up in the tub. Would be a great place if an investment was put into it to do needed repairs.

We chose this hotel because of its location. It is in the Gaslamp District and Seaport Village. The hotel is old, but still charming.

the hotel is a historical construction. it looks great. the location is great.
