Great location beautiful hotel. Great service close to everything walking distance. Would stay here again

Kimptons are usually one of my favorite hotels. Loved that this hotel is pet friendly, overall it was pretty clean, the staff was nice, food and drinks were good. The location was horrible. Yes you could walk a few blocks to Gaslamp but this area was full of homeless people. Definitely not the safest block

Middle of Gaslamp. Great location. Covid messes up everything. Dont even clean your room. We stayed for 4 nights.

We stayed at this Kimpton Hotel for four days for my son's wedding, also held at this hotel. I'm an amateur photographer who's never photographed a wedding before but did so at this event as my wedding gift to my son. Staff was INCREDIBLY solicitous and helpful in getting my equipment set up and secured. The facility is modern and nicely appointed. Rooms are clean, beds quite comfortable. The only downside is it's in the heart of downtown San Diego, and there's no onsite parking. The secured lot is four blocks away, so getting stuff out of my car was challenging. But the parking valets were great at getting me my car whenever necessary. OMG: $50 a night for parking!

Very friendly customer service. Clean hotel. Overall enjoyable experience

Great location near good restaurants and attractions

Nice hotel in downtown San Diego near House of Blues

Great location and nice relaxing stay. Hotel staff was very accommodating and helpful with recommendations.

Smooth operation. Pleasant place. Exceptional service. Only issue front desk couldn’t break a fifty at 4 am on way to airport.

Friendly staff, clean, comfortable, and spacious rooms. The coffee is excellent. Location is excellent as well.

Beautiful hotel close to many restaurants, bars, etc. and within walking distance to the ferry. We didn’t have much time to explore San Diego yet the friendly staff suggested a trip to Coronad Beach via the ferry and we had a lovely time. Minor issues with the room were reported and the staff made it right. Overall this was a lovely stay.

Great hotel especially if you have dogs!
