Didn’t like that we didn’t have a choice for valet. Unless we parked a block down the street and even that was $20 a day. Breakfast options just ok. Other than that. The rooms and hotel are great!!

Perfect location downtown near the bay and convention center.

Amazing suite! Room had everything easily accessible and all the features that we needed to comfortably share a room with multiple females. Bedroom and living room with pull out sofa with a privacy door on between, two tv, 3 sinks, multiple mirrors and 2 full length mirrors too with plenty of lighting to help us get ready comfortably. Outlets everywhere and convenient USB ports. Hotel breakfast was actually substantial and decent, and they had a adult social at night for free which was amazing. Location was perfect, walking distance to ocean, Seaport village, Gas lamp district and the trolley line!! We have added this hotel to visit SD once a year! Definitely going back!

small front entrance, dangerous long line waiting while cars stick out the road! Valet parking charged $50???? ridiculous!

The property location was close to Seaworld and San Diego zoo. Close to Coronado beach and such a cool, pretty area. We enjoyed the stay here and we would do it again. I didn't love the forced valet fees, but understand, as there is literally nowhere to park in the vicinity. $50.00 a night isn't cheap, though... Cool hotel surrounded by awesome things. Corona and it's restrictions sure suck, though.

Location and staff was great.

Check in took over 1 hour. Even if we could chack in at 4 pm the room wasn't ready after 9 pm !!!!!

While the hotel is in a good location & the rooms are nice, there is no self parking & they charge you $50 so you have essentially no choice. The breakfast is terrible....the choice of 2 boxes “because of covid”. Also there pool is closed for the same reason but they don’t tell you that when you reserve your ticket...but until you get there! The shower takes a long time time until it gets hot and only one side of the shower door moves....which seemed odd since it was the side furthest from the temperature gauge. So w no good food & no pool for relaxation & forced expensive valet where we waited 20 minutes to get the car when we checked out, why stay there?? This was my first & last time here. Even though they apologized, that’s all they did....I’m sure nothing will be done to solve the problems and that’s why I’m taking time to write this review. Go somewhere else that cares!

The breakfast was clean safe and easily transferable to the room.

I like that I was given a choice of what floor we wanted.

The bedding was very comfortable. Clean hotel. Great area

I appreciate them letting us check in early. They offer free breakfast for every adult in the reservation.

it was so big and spacious i love the view and the breakfast was a plus

The shower doors were a little wonky. The thermometer was not working in the room. They did offer to move us to another room.
