Great property, new and well designed. Staff helpful. Location excellent to everything local, it’s at the base of Little Italy so lots of great dining options walking distance. We had a car and we’re able to see LaJolla and Torrey Pines easily, dinner in North Park 15 min drive, drive over to Coronado in less than 10 min. Due to crazy weather the rooftop dining was shut so used our $30/day property fee at the lobby bar, which was actually a really good experience. Did not have difficulty with nearby street parking for the 3 days we were there. Room spacious and well appointed. Would stay at Carte again and highly recommend.

Great modern hotel with all of the amenities! I also loved the secure aspect.. the entire hotel was digital keyless; even the elevators used it. We will be back.

Easy check-in, very friendly staff. Loved the access to fit gym, including classes. Destination fee counts towards food and drinks (including alcohol). Ash food was pretty good, watercolors breakfast was not (scrambled eggs were burned and very greasy, also tried the pastries and yogurt parfait) but that is my only negative from the stay. Very convenient to waterfront and little italy. Wine bar attached was also lovely.
