I've stayed at this location for a few months and my time here has been nothing but spectacular. I have been to hundreds of hotels all over the world ranging from countries in Asia, Europe and everywhere in between. What makes this place an absolute stay is the extraordinary hospitality from the hotel staff. Eric Manning was a pleasure to work with, Jesse Obrien was always extremely accommodating and the staff to include Audrey, Hector and Jackie struck me as super friendly with a warm greeting every time I passed through. I would 100% stay here again in the future. Overall 10/10 - Amazing friendly staff, fantastic management and one of the best locations in town!

Overall enjoyed the hotel, but I had my expectations set for 5 star, and that it is not. The room is nice, the mattress is SUPER comfortable, but the pillows are terrible. Holiday Inns have better pillows. Additionally, the bed had only two pillows. I have grown accustomed to all 4 or 5 star hotels having 4 pillows. A quick call and two more were delivered promptly, but no more comfortable that the original 2. The chaise lounge in the window area looks spectacular, but is really uncomfortable as a seat and basically useless. Some form of comfortable seating in a hotel room at this level is a reasonable expectation. It does make a great luggage rack. The desk chair is comfortable for sitting at the desk to work, but it had to double as a place to sit while lounging in the room. Nice bathroom, nice shower, great water pressure, and really appreciated the knob on the opposite side of the shower from the shower head to turn it on to get warm without getting wet. Brilliant design. Was a bit disappointed that there was no robe in the room. Another expectation at this level of hotel. I'm sure Covid is the excuse, but most have already added them back. Vistal was a particularly bad experience with the Covid set up. We had booked a table for dinner, outside, through Open Table. When we arrived, the person "checking you in" was working for the other outlet (I was unaware it had reopened) and we were told to go to the bar to order, and there were tables with reserved tags outside for the reservations. Not ideal, but Covid, staffing, etc., I get it. Prior to ordering, we looked outside for these reserved tables. Nothing was reserved, no tags at all. EVERY table with chairs was occupied. A large group had gathered the chairs from some of the tables at one end and crowded them all around one table. Not only was this a Covid problem, but with no table there was no way to eat dinner. It's a shame, as later in the evening we got a to go order and the food was actually very good. I certainly will not return to Vistal during Covid. Overall, I am in San Diego often and would stay again but only at a good rate and probably not again until I see some reviews indicating improvements. The restaurant alone caused me to drop the service rating. The Front Office was great and Housekeeping was great. The room was spotlessly clean.

Thank you PSPJeff for taking the time to write this detailed review and for all the feedback you provided. Unfortunately many of the normal standards like number of pillows, bathrobes and Vistal ordering are related to Covid Protocols, not an excuse but our changing rules. Of course we always honor our guest request for additional pillows and robes plus other items guest need. We do appreciate your detailed feedback regarding Vistal and we will review your comments with our team so we can learn from your experience. It is great to hear our Front Office & Housekeeping team did an excellent job serving you and our cleanliness protocols were outstanding. We hope you will provide us another opportunity to be of service to you in the future. On that occasion please reach out directly so I can assist with your reservations.

My wife and I just returned from an amazing stay at The InterContinental San Diego, and what a blast we had. I was arranging a virtual baby shower for my wife with our family and fiends, couldn't have picked a better location and a team to have executed this better. The General Manager Chuck Abott and the Guest Relations team arranged a surprise cake, chocolate covered strawberries, champagne and some balloons to mark the occasion. We also received an amazing room upgrade to a suite with panoramic views of the water. My wife was blown away by the initial impression. The hotel has the Covid-19 protocols down to a T. From comfortable self parking with room key access for In and Out to signage and spacing. We felt so comfortable that we dined 2 of the nights at the hotel restaurant. The restaurant and bar team are wonderful and will immediately put you at ease. The ordering and dining protocols are clearly defined and everyone seems to know whats expected. And did I say the food was delicious!! Our room was spacious with the latest tech, amazing views and an extra comfy bed. Sincerely appreciate the team at The InterContinental for the amazing hospitality.

Our experience here started being greeted by Hailey who was cheerful, kind, and very helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our room at the hotel which was clean with a beautiful view of the bay. Major props to the rest of the staff we interacted with who were all very kind and cheerful including the ladies working at the Club Lounge and especially Chuck who went above and beyond trying to help my girlfriend and I land a spot for the Elevate Pilates class. It was an absolute pleasure staying here and I will definitely be back in the future and highly recommend this hotel to anyone considering staying in and around San Diego Bay.

After a bad experience at another hotel downtown, we scrambled to find a new one on the night before Valentine's Day! This place had 1 room left per their website that fit my wants list. I was a little worried because this place was on the pricier side and I had just had a terrible experience at the other "pricey" hotel downtown. Anyway, the room was great! Very modern, BEAUTIFUL view, nice and clean. They have nice amenities and the staff so far has been very friendly. Cool bar and located in a beautiful area. Been very happy here so far! It's worth it to pay the $ to have a nice room and a beautiful view if that's what you're looking for.
