    The pool was closed. The door was boring. Nothing to do at the hotel. Basically walked in and out of the hotel and paid $30 each day for parking. There's much more fun and intriguing hotels else were. I was born and raised in San Diego and visit often in hotel stays. This definitely isn't a vibe I'd like to stay in again.

    Solid hotel

    Cool room, nothing from the ordinary but useful in group settings for the larger room. Security came up twice but he was very understanding and agreed on what volume was right. Location was great and close to many places in walking distance.

    Comfort of hotel was ok. No towels in the restroom. Also vending machines suck! Some times they take and sometimes they give! Definitely would have appreciated some water at a dying thirst lol iwfu

    Awesome!

    The room was very spacious, I loved it. I also loved how many mirrors were in the room, many hotels lack mirrors, but this place has that covered.

    I didn't like how small the shower was. The central air was not working in the common areas, which I assume is not something that happens all the time, so I am not putting too much emphasis on that, however it was excessively hot even riding the elevator or just walking down the hallways.. Enough that I walked at a more rapid pace to get outside faster.

    Great location and price

    Great location in the city Very bright rooms Nice accommodations for traveling on a budget Large rooms with separate living room and bedroom

    Entrance elevators only go to parking and reception then you must take a separate elevator to the rooms.

    Disappointed

    I really like the recent decor updates

    The service seems lacking compared to the last trip we took there, the rooms were needing some repairs and carpet needed a good shampoo.

    young couple mini honeymoon

    We stayed here on our mini honeymoon before we go on our big honeymoon in May. The staff made sure to give us a corner room view of the city. The hotel employees were very friendly

    There was no refrigerator but there was a microwave. Why would i need to warm up my food in the microwave if i didnt have a fridge. Wish they would include a complimentary breakfast. Rooms were outdated wish they looked more like the lobby area. Overall comfortable relaxing stay with my husband

    Good for the price

    For the price, this place is great! Beautiful views from our room on the 26th floor. You won't find views like that anywhere close to this price range.

    A few minor cracks in the walls in the bathroom. Room kids gives off a slightly outdated vibe. Walls are quite thin. We could hear our Neighbors talking all evening. $29 a night for self parking. $35 for valet.

    Could have been worse...

    The lobby and check-in area were simple, but nicely designed. There was a large handpainted calendar behind the concierge desk showing which music acts were performing over the course of the month. It was informative and artistic. The lobby was clean, modern, and inviting as was the attached Deck 12 restaurant and bar. The front desk person was friendly. Since we were there on a Saturday night, leaving Sunday, we were able to take advantage of ample street parking for free.

    Our room was located directly across from the elevators. Very loud when sitting in a chair in the living room space of the suite. The room was reasonably spacious, but it had not been updated in quite some time. When we entered for the first time, we were overwhelmed with an almost toxic level of chlorine funmes. (Obviously I am being overly dramatic as i don't think we were in any danger.) The bathroom felt very small and tight despite being a good size. There was a tub and seperate shower, but even my wife could not take a showewr without hitting her elbow trying to maneuver in the stall. It was that small. In fact, I hadto open the shower door in order to move my arms when drying off. When asking the guy at the concierge desk for breakfast spots, he was not very knowledgeable. Turned out he was actually the bellman and the concierge was busy. Would have been good for him to start off with that info. There was no gift shop where one could buy snacks or water. Our only option was to use the vending machines and if you wanted drinks, you had to go several floors up to find a machine that sold them.

    Great value for a stellar hotel

    Friendly, courteous and helpful staff. Modern decor and spotless rooms! Wonderful view and comfortable bed.

    Parking garage is poorly designed, elevator setup is confusing (tho it adds some security), fridge didn't work.
