Good locationThe Sophia was a cute hotel. It was just a short distance from the great restaurants of 5th avenue. The hotel restaurant was a great breakfast spot. The only complaint I had is that the king bed was definitely not a king size.

Friendly staff close to Petco Park.Clean and cozy room with a fireplace. I liked the balcony that overlooked the courtyard. Friendly staff check in and out was a breeze. The parking was expensive and the toilet was very loud when it flushed. However I would definitely stay there again.

Beautiful hotel overlooking the water I stayed only one night but I wish I had stayed longer! Hotel staff were super friendly and accommodating. I absolutely loved the restaurant/bar (Glass Door I believe) that overlooks the ocean. Amazing happy hour specials! Don't forget to check out the rooftop jacuzzi ;)
