There was a yelping dog in the room next door. The front desk said it was a service dog and they had to allow it. Then why wasn't it out with the owner? When the owner came back, they partied until late. The walls were thin. We heard everything. The front desk said there were only two people and they couldn't stop them from talking. Wrong. We heard more than two people including loud male voices. Front desk would do nothing.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The valet guys were quick too because I had read bad reviews and that just wasn’t the case. Our room was beautiful, spacious, and clean. We had nice views and we were actually able to see a bit of the ocean from our room on the 8th floor. The hotel is very convenient and only a few steps to Gaslamp as well as the marina. We felt safe walking around late at night. We definitely recommend this hotel and will come back!
