Exceptional 10.0
Great pool and location
Superb hotel. Great location Fab pool area and good food
susan, gb3 night trip with friends
Very good 8.0
Somewhere a bit different
Cool feel. Nice staff. Relaxed atmosphere. Great Pool though can be busy at weekends with non-hotel users. Lots of character and a lovely building. Enjoyed just sitting in the lobby reading and people-watching. Quite a young crowd generally. Bit of a funny smell... As a Brit I object to paying for parking ($18 a night). Decent value for a hotel full of style.
Richard, gbFamily trip
Very good 8.0
Old fashioned charm
Interesting neighbourhood with fun cafes, bars and eateries but all San Diego accessible via bus. Helpful staff and decent room. Pool gets busy at weekends and music from bar below my room would have been an issue if needed to sleep early evening. Done by 1000
Simon, gbOther trip
Good 6.0
2 night stay before cruise
I've got to say that overall I was mildly disappointed with my stay. My suite was old fashioned but spacious. It was let down by poor quality windows, which meant that traffic and airport noise were prominent. I didn't like the fact that I had to negotiate my way through a bar and pool area with my cases to find my room. On the positive side, the bar served excellent food, fabulous cocktails and the staff were lovely. The neighbourhood felt safe and friendly and the price of my stay was reasonable.

Very good 8.0
Good Hotel at a good price. We had a problem but it was quickly and efficiently resolved by the staff. Easy bus access from here to Gaslamp Quarter.
