Guests can upgrade to a suite to enjoy extra living space, a rich décor, and a whirlpool tub to relax and refresh the body and mind.

If guests would like to further indulge in relaxation, they're able to take advantage of the hotel's in-room spa services. Room service is also offered to each guest. A 24-hour fitness center is open to all guests who are looking to break a sweat, even if it's the middle of the night. A yoga studio and on-site restaurant are also offered to guests.

9.4 Wonderful

10.0 Wonderful
Cons:I loved everything
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:It's location is perfect. Walking distance to pretty much everything you would want to do downtown; gaslamp, marina, horton plaza, etc. Room was perfect for me and my girlfriend. Staff was very accomodating.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Nice lobby with friendly staff greeting us upon arrival. Lots of charm with short excerpts posted throughout highlighting the history of the building. Room was comfortable with all needed amenities for a place to stay. The purpose of our stay was the city. This room gave us a comfy pillow top mattress to rest and recharge each night with complimentary water keeping us hydrated. Workout facility was nice and hardly crowded during our stay. No complaints and would gladly stay here again.
Cons:Rooms were small. There was no view including limited sunlight through the window plus the "green" lighting made it so you had to turn every light in the room on when getting ready. Bathroom was small and no vent :-/. Closet didn't open all the way due to being obstructed by the bedside table (again, room was small). I'm being as honest as possible with these negative, but the purpose of the room was met and the pros far exceeded the cons during our stay.
8.2 Very good
Cons:I was surprised to have to pay a mandatory fee for services that I did not use or want. I thought that was very unfair of the hotel.
