I like the amenities, like roof too bar and pool. The downstairs bar and complementary happy hour. I wasn’t very pleased with the “clean” aspect. I noticed the floor in my room needed some mopping and the sheets had some debris/dead bug on top. I hold the “clean” topic to a higher standard.

Great hotel with friendly staff and a great location in Gaslamp. Best part was they were dog friendly for my sweet puppy boy.

Very nice hotel, in the heart of downtown San Diego. My only complaint, would be the firm mattress.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Amenities
I thought the property was great. The hotel room was probably one of the cleanest hotels I’ve been in all year (that was my 7th trip of 2021). There were some cleanliness issues in the pool. But I’m not one to complain. The staff, on the other hand, was extremely pleasant. The major issue was getting a ~$120 service charge for items I never received. I though that was inconvenient & misleading. All in all, I would take this into consideration when planning a trip at this hotel.
