Nice clean rooms, fun atmosphere. Comfortable beds. A little noisy at night with window facing busy street. Otherwise, great stay. I was attending a conference at the San Diego Convention Center so very nice, short walk daily. Very close to PetCo park and took in a San Diego Padres game.

A little too much very late partying allowed to go on throughout the hotel but the rest of the stay was very good. I was thoroughly impressed by the guys out front handling valet and other guest assistance. Adrian, Emmet, and Hector went far above just normal guest services. They handled unusual requests with no issues and like it's something...

I attended the MadWorld conference in the beginning of April. Everything was nice and shining. Very good and large conference rooms with fine video and audio equipment. Also the Woodstock patio was a pleasure to enjoy the breakfast and lunch.

I stayed here for four nights while attending a trade show across the street at the San Diego Convention Center. I do my reviews by categories: Room: I had a king bed room (Room #314) that faced the convention center (L Street). The room was a decent size and updated. However there was an issue with cleanliness, it looked like...

Stayed for 4 days with a conference. Friendly staff, nice food at the conference meals. Nice room, great bathroom. My only criticism is that I thought they should have more people staffing the front desk around check out time.

Everything was awesome just get the candles out of any rooms with booze. You do not want an entire hotel of guests pissed off at a 4am fire alarm cuz one of your drunken guests set the bed on fire with a candle. I mean no smoking rooms so why is open fire ok?
