Location is incredible

Second time staying at this hotel. Love the location, rooftop restaurant and the pool. Great stay for when in San Diego!

Location, cleanness, style and not crowded, an important point in theese pandemic times

Warning pay $45 for parking and $75 for hotel fee disappointment

Rooftop bar was awesome! Excellent drinks, food, & service. Watching Halloween movies on Halloween night under the stars sipping on a strong cocktail and munching on tasty food was definitely a highlight of our trip! The underground hotel parking was super secure and I think worth the price for peace of mind. The hotel is only a few mins drive away from major excursions like museums and the zoo and it is also walking distance to some excellent breweries, bars, and restaurants (Karl Strauss right up the street)!

It’s always a great time staying at Cartè, service is amazing and the room is very comfortable. The pillows might be a little too plush for me but other than that I love staying here everytime I’m in town.

Hotel looked very new, everything was clean and in good shape. Everything was in walking distance. We were able to walk to little Italy and order food to go and eat it in the hotel lobby since the restaurants in little Italy were too crowded for our liking. There is plenty of parking, which costs too much but that is expected in CA. We would definitely stay again!

My sister and I stayed at the Carte hotel as a getaway for a few days. It was our first time at the hotel and we were so pleased with the style, cleanliness, amenities and staff. We had an issue with the tub drain in our originally booked room, so we were moved into a second room without a problem. This room was a 2 queen bed with a very nice bathroom (shower and large counter top) with two window views of the city. We spent all afternoon at the pool, walked through the beautiful gym and had dinner at the rooftop.

I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. I just wish I could stay another night to really enjoy the pool and the other services they provide. The bed and pillows were so dreamy! Most comfortable bed at a hotel that I’ve ever stayed in. When I’m back in San Diego, I’ll be sure to book a room at the Carté!

Good location. Awesome roof top bar and restaurant.Friendly staff

Hotel was very nice and had nice features. Staff wasn’t very friendly. Room service was terrible and the rooftop bar was really cool, but always understaffed.

Parking fee was ridiculously expensive, $52 a night.

Spacious room, bathroom, etc. Everything totally new. Friendly competent staff. Overnight valet parking is expensive -- $52/night, but all other options including nearby street parking lots are nearly as high.
