    Walkable to cool restaurants and bars, but in a quiet block. Small rooms, but elegant and efficiently designed. Super comfy beds and upscale vibe. Love this gem of a boutique hotel! Fitness and yoga are included along with free wifi.

    We visited SD for a Jiu Jitsu Tournament and wanted to stay the night (We're from Los Angeles). The hotel is great, clean, and staff is nice. The hotel is in the perfect location as it is close to many restaurants and gaslamp quarters.
