I stayed at this BW for five days for a conference and vacation time. The downtown location is ideal for walking everywhere, the hotel is quiet and the mattress and pillows are about the best I've ever slept on. The pillows were amazing. Front desk staff were all friendly. I was initially going to be given a pool view room,...

I am on government business and this hotel offered daily lodging rates equivalent to government thresholds, so, since on base lodging was unavailable I booked a room for 5 nights. The night I checked in, after a 10 hour travel day, I needed to use the facilities and discovered the flush handle of the toilet would not move. I could...

Room was clean but small. Front desk was very accommodating upon arrival. Breakfast was dehydrated eggs and link sausages with potatoes cooked in some type of chili powder. Bread and fruit choices were less than impressive. Prices are reasonable considering the location. Safe place with convenient access and parking.

A basic high-rise hotel just south of Little Italy and within walking distance to downtown and to the Trolley line and AMTRAK. This hotel offers a free shuttle to the airport and for my husband and I, this sure came in handy. Ok, the smell of old cigarette smoke can still be smelled in the room; because the 4th floor...

The hotel proximity was close to the Zoo and to the USS Midway which we were visiting. Downtown is a little exciting to maneuver around one-way streets but GPS helps. We arrived after sunset so it was difficult to find the entrance to their parking structure. It didn't help that a tour bus was blocking our view of the driveway....

I chose this hotel because of its close proximity to the places we wanted to visit. It is conveniently located in the downtown area and within walking distance of several local attractions. (Which is important because parking is at a premium downtown.) For the location, the price was very reasonable. The hotel was clean and the staff courteous. The breakfast...

The beds and pillows were very comfy. The room was clean, fresh and quiet, even thought it was near an elevator. I especially appreciated the balcony for fresh sea air. And, you can't beat the location! The downside is "downtown" parking garage and their limited tight spaces.

Our proximity to Little Italy offers guests easy access to amazing dining and breweries from award winning chefs. Guests can easily walk to shopping and dining at the nearby harbor area including Seaport Village & The Headquarters. Those that love to explore and site see find our central location to many local museums and attractions, like the World Famous San Diego Zoo(R) and the Midway Museum very convenient. In addition to our complimentary services, like a daily breakfast buffet, shuttle service and WI-FI, guests may take advantage of some of our new and enhanced amenities from our 2015 first floor remodel.
