    Great room and very friendly staff. Had a few hiccups in the restaurant, but staff there made everything right. Will definitely stay again if we return to San Diego. Love the rooftop pool, but wish they had a hot tub as well.

    Your question is posted on Tripadvisor; you need to contact the hotel directly through their website. Hope you have a great stay. We enjoyed staying there.

    I'm sorry, but I have no idea about parking. I used UBER for my entire trip. It was extremely cost effective and user friendly.
