It was a wonderful place to stay. The ambiance is lovely and just steps away from the Gaslamp district and the Balboa theater. I am already starting to plan a return trip there this spring.

The property is well located in gas lamp area - lots of restaurants around. If you book this hotel request a top floor room since the building is old and not too well soundproofed -especially the floors.

Elevators were incredibly slow. Shower could have been better. Staff at front counter: 1 really nice Hispanic lady. One moderately nice and another fuzzy scarf wearing front desk lady was very direct and did not go out of her way to make conversations at all. She wasn’t rude but not friendly.

A great stay! Hotel was not too overpriced. Parking was around $30 and the destination fee was $24. I expected more so I was glad about this. Staff was nice, room was clean and got an amazing view I didn’t pay to upgrade to. Walking distance to gaslamp and right next to the water.

The place was well kept and in a quiet location in the Hillcrest area. I honestly didn’t know what area I was in until after driving around the steeets and asking a local. The place is great for three or less, I had 4 people. My two small sons and my oldest son, it was great for us. I liked that ...
