Great hotel & location, expensive parking!
Really good hotel well located in central San Diego, operated by very helpful and polite staff. Everything was very modern and clean. Rooms were a touch small for 2 people, but fine for the 3 nights we were there. Two slight downsides on the additional extras. The parking was very expensive, $38 per night! And the WiFi didn't work from the room on the top floor.

Happy customer
We had a problem with our shower on our first night, the following day we got upgraded to a suite. The staff were very helpful. I would stay here again. Great location. Great hotel with outstanding customer service.

Location and staff great, room needed upgrading.
The location and services of the hotel were great. Our room however, was incredibly dated, the toilet and sink were in different areas within the room and the shower pressure was weak. Despite this, the staff were helpful and friendly and the location of the hotel was great for us for what we needed. The bus to the zoo ran right past the hotel, which was really handy and cheap also.

Nice location, comfortable stay
Nice location - a few blocks from the Gaslamp quarter, 10 mins walk to USS Midway Museum and close to Macy's. The hotel was comfortable and the staff were friendly and helpful with restaurant recommendations. It's a shame there was no pool but overall this was a great hotel for a 3 night break.
