Recent guest reviews

We enjoyed the location and the staff...amazing! The mattress was not as comfortable as some and the pillows could be newer...over all the stay was EXCELLENT.

Loved this old historic hotel! Right in the middle of everything and most places are within walking distance.

Nice hotel within easy walking distances for restaurants and attractions.

good location, kind staff, clean room, old fashioned equipment

No parking at the hotel except for valet, and it was expensive.

Really nice hotel. The room was spacious and well equipped. The staff was friendly. The bar was awesome and the food at the restaurant was delicious. I especially recommend the hamburger. Only complaint is that the sofa bed needs to be changed out in room 243. We did not use it as bed but to sit on and watch TV. The cushions are torn, old and flat. Other than that, great stay!

First night we checked in they gave us room next to hotel bar... We could hear all bar crowd noise til 1am... We were moved next day...Then 2 nights later had to call front desk twice..until they got security to talk to guests sitting on outside patio talking loud til 2am.. Hotel was real nice, BUT they should never have given us that room first night..( We were there for 5 nights)

Beautiful historic hotel with fast friendly service. Right in Gaslamp Quarter, which was perfect for strolling around. Loved it!

Stayed on 3rd floor but next to trash bin, lots of noise due to this. Otherwise a good stay.

Good location. Room was huge. Decoration of the room not great.

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.

excellent location classy hotel with fantastic interior and history to look at.
