The food was delicious and not over priced. The outside dining area and bar was a great experience it was clean and really sets the mood, the staff was nice and helpful plus the complementary breakfast was delicious and fresh

Loved that it was in the state park, designated parking, personal tour upon check in, the historic furnishings, walk across street to Amtrack/Bus terminal, all for a reasonable price!

The room was full of cool antique furniture. Unfortunately, the room smelled like a thrift store as a result--but I got used to it. I would stay there again.

NOT the quietest hotel, but very unique and historical. Extremely clean and quaint rooms and very friendly staff! No TV's in rooms so you can hear the train horn and people walking by often. No other place is like the Cosmopolitan though if you're looking for something different and special!

Great service and property charm. Historical property and area were the reason we stayed here. Excellent staff and service. We will definitely stay here again. Only con is that the area is laud with freeway noise.

Friendly and helpful staff. They even met us at about 2:00 am to let us in as our flights were delayed. Fun environment and unique hotel,

Mimimal amenities. Historic. Very basic...no TV...no phone... Very nice restaraunt

This room is suppose to be hunted. I didn't get that feeling although the wife did even to the point that she felt like she was pushed during our breakfast.

Even though I live in the area, I've always wanted to stay at this hotel. Loved the historical significance, décor and ambience. Room was comfortable. Furnished with antiques including the pull chain toilet which worked perfectly, and a modern shower with rain head that was awesome. Balcony outside room overlooked the plaza and other historical buildings of Old Town. A/C worked very well. There was the sound of a train horn a few times and some traffic noise from the freeway in the distance but otherwise generally quiet. If you want to experience a piece of history and be right in the center of Old Town, this is the best place to be.

If you're looking for a unique experience this is the hotel for you. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff welcomes you and yours your room. Take the time to read the journal in the room about past guest experirnces. Our room had a giant 40 gallon copper tub - fabulous! Period decor is nice and rooms are clean. We knew there was no TV which gave us ample reading time during our stay. Great wifi connection but not enough electrical outlets in all areas of room. Also wish there was more variety at continental breakfast. I would definitely recommend and would stay again.

My husband and I love the Cosmopolitan. Not only is it our most favorite hotel of all time, it is also out favorite restaurant. Not only is it beautiful and masterfully maintained, but the food is incomparable and is only matched by the perfect and thorough service of both hotel, restaurant, and bar staff. They have the most enchanting music playing every night and this historic hotel is set in such a romantic and culturally rich location. Our favorite couples room is room #1 with its huge wooden bath that fits 2!

The historical aspect of the Cosmopolitan put us back in time. I snooped out everything I could read around the hotel about the people who made this building such an important landmark in the history of California and imagine history being made. Not into all that haunted stuff that is popular today but did enjoy reading the on going diary in our room and added to it. It was a little hard not having a television in the room but loved the fireplace which created a special ambiance. Casa de Reyes was a place we visited often. Signage could be improved to the Casa de Reyes and the transportation hub. Would have liked info on the 5 forms of transportation before walking to the bus/trolley/local metro link train/Coaster/Amtrack lines as it was confusing not knowing where to purchase tickets and having to ask the locals way too many questions. It could have been so much easier. The hotel made our airport pick up arrangements for us and where we were to meet the cab driver at 4:30 a.m. which was a little late. I would go again.

Not Good, what else do you want me to say Not Good, what else do you want me to say Not Good, what else do you want me to say

quite overnight stay, close to train station. fun walking around to all the shops. pretty laid back environment

Great hotel, eventhought it was built 180 yrs ago, it's very well preserved, clean, beds are super comfortable and a beautiful wooden bath tub. Service is great and the area is full of history, $14 dollar cab ride to gas lamp district, less then 10min ride. I would definitely stay here again!!!
