The room smells like mold. I stated 5 hours and left. Booked a hotel next door. Worst experience ever.
Most comfortable bed I've had at a hotel
The historic hotel was clean and the staff was courteous. Rooms were a fair size and had all the amenities that I would want in a luxury hotel. The lobby was comfortable for getting caught up on email (and had a great cup of coffee in the morning). As mentioned in the title, I have never had such a comfortable bed and wish I could take it home with me.
The hotel cannot control this, but the area is filled with homeless and panhandlers that made it uncomfortable to walk to the Gaslamp district or Midway museum (it's worse on 4th Street). Next time we will likely stay close to the waterfront where the problem seems to be lessened.
Great Hotel in a screwed up downtown
Good, comfortable bed; historic setting; very good food in their grill: their sea bass w/ artichokes, arugula pesto and spinach cavalcati was incredible. Geat Caesar salad at lunch; good bar service; excellent Bloody Mary! Nice housekeeping staff. Helpful concierge gave me good info about getting to the San Diego Zoo.
Snooty front desk clerk: I was staying 2 nights on SPG points, an SPG Gold member. Took advantage of early check in and 4pm checkout - that was great. Front desk clerk says: "Sorry can't upgrade you at checkin." And I say, if I didn't check in until after my day's activities after 6pm, could I get an upgrade?" response: "No". So why did you even say that sh*t in the first place? Total droid. Also, downtown San Diego is a dreary place indeed. Homelessness abounds. And while there are nice restaurants within a mile, this particular stretch of Broadway isn't much...
Enjoyed our stay with our 5 yr old. Very courteous staff, local amenities, and close Seaport Village and other site seeing entertainment. Now a favorite, will definitely stay again in the near future.
Beds were terrible and room was small
Cool vibe. Great room and decor. Easy check in.
Luxury at its finest.
The hotel is a historic landmark located near the Gaslamp district in downtown San Diego. The location is great for shopping, site seeing, and night life. The staff of the hotel was superb! A fantastic back drop for a romantic getaway.
Lovely, historic luxury hotel
Elegant and plush surroundings, very comfortable bed, room was lovely with great amenities even though I had a single room. Great power breakfast meal!
Fantastic hotel with history...
The room was great and service was excellent.
Very noisy on the 4th floor exterior room all night long on a weekend.. I requested a room with a view and got a view of the rundown buildingf to peo next to us and listene.
It was a wonderful expeeience from the moment we walk in to the time we left. It's a beautiful hotel with a wonderful staff.
The Spa Suite was a little plain in appearance for a luxury hotel but the therapist was excellent.
The staff was friendly and courteous. The entire stay was pleasant and we were well taken care of as guests.
The rooms were big and the decor was very nice. The staff were great and the location was perfect for visiting San Diego.
The charge for parking is too high. We parked on nearby streets for a tenth of the cost.
