Leisure and business come together at San Diego Hotels’ Bristol Hotel A Greystone Hotel. With ample meeting and event space and comfortable accommodations in the middle of San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter, The Bristol caters to a range of travelers.

The San Diego hotel provides guests with boutique lodging in the form of five different rooms. Each room welcomes visitors with plush bedding and pillow top mattress, a 55” flatscreen TV, complimentary WiFi, same day dry-cleaning, a refrigerator, bathrobes, an in-room safe, and complimentary toiletries. Rooms are pet-friendly for an additional fee.

Views of San Diego are offered through large windows, but guests can step outside The Bristol to explore the city themselves. Located in Downtown San Diego, visitors are within close distance to the San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, SeaWorld San Diego, and plenty of dining and shopping at Seaport Village. The San Diego International Airport is just minutes away, making it an ideal spot for business travelers.

Meetings and conferences can be held at The Bristol’s 1,215 sq. ft City Scene Room, complete with high-speed internet, and on-site catering. If more space is needed, the San Diego Convention Center is not far from the boutique hotel.

The hotel offers a complimentary breakfast seven days a week and is close to many restaurants within the Gaslamp district. Travelers won’t go hungry with BuonAppetito, Lou & Mickey's, Civico 1845, The Oceanaire Seafood Room, and Cafe 21 just down the road.

The hotel’s location in the heart of Downtown San Diego and cozy accommodations make it an ideal destination for leisurely and business travelers.

10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Clean and nice place. I really liked that they included ear buds, didn't use them but it's nice they thought ahead because the room was right next to a main street and the street traffic woke me up a few times.
Cons:The breakfast
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Funky rooms, very cool lounge. Free breakfast! Free fancy water cooler and coffee cart for guests in the lobby. Nice area to visit downtown.
3.4 Poor
Pros:It was centrally located
Cons:The room was old, smelled weird, horrible wi-fi that kept kicking us off, mini fridge upon request?! Overall felt the price did not match the quality of room we received. Would NEVER stay here again or recommend to anyone!
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:My girlfriend and I enjoyed this hotel. The staff was very friendly and accommodated our stay. The valet personnel was also great. Definitely recommend staying here.
Cons:There really isn't much to complain about for this hotel. The only thing was that the hallway smelled like residual cigarette smoke, but the rooms themselves did not smell like smoke, which was great.
9.1 Wonderful
Pros:Perfect location, walking distance to gas lamp district and mall across the street. Quiet and comfortable. Good price. Free wifi.

7.6 Good
