I attended a breakfast at the convention center, and stayed just a night at the Residence Inn. The staff were friendly, the room was clean and comfortable, and location very convenient (a mere 3 minute walk away) to the convention center. Really glad they have free wifi. I will return the next time I'm in San Diego!

I stayed at this property for 3 nights during a tradeshow. The access to the convention center is fantastic. An easy walk through the gaslamp area. The free breakfast was great in the morning and the workout facility was up to date and nice that it was located on the 2nd floor above the street overlooking the district. Unique to...

Centrally located, pleasant staff, smallest rooms I've ever seen at a residence inn, postage sized swimming pool. Tasty inexpensive fish tacos at their onsite bar. Worked well for us to walk, trolley or uber/taxi to so many fun sites and restaurants. We would stay again.

Amazing stay as before. The mattresses at this hotel are amazing! Add the pillows and you are in heaven.

Clean, quiet, well furnished and a nice location. This is a great place to stay, with good driving accessibility (but expensive parking). A comfortable walk to downtown business and surrounded by nice restaurants. Room service was prompt - and delicious.

The location is outstanding. The customer facing staff are very nice, very helpful. We found housekeeping to be inconsistent. We loved the location, about a 10 minute walk to the convention center and right in the heart of the gas lamp district with all of the GREAT restaurants. The room's layout was good as well, but no privacy in the...

Booked this hotel last year as it was close to my sister's wedding reception. Big mistake! The ladies at the lobby were very rude, they expect us to pay premium to stay at the hotel but the service they offer us can't quite match the amount of money we paid. The ladies who were on that night shift, 10/22/15 need...

“The rooms are comfortable and if you're facing West, you'll be facing 5th Ave and you'll have a bit of a view of the ocean. If you're facing North, you'll be seeing the new Hotel that was just finished. If you're facing East, you'll be facing 6th Ave. The room has a full refrigerator, a dishwasher, a 2 burner electric cooktop, a microwave, and a coffee maker. Careful when cooking. The smoke can gather and you'll set off the alarm. The vent-fan seems to be weak.”
