Stayed at this hotel for 3 days, its in walking distance to the port, Gastown and many other places. The bar/ restaurant is a fun place to be, happy hour is always busy the food is good and plentiful. A short walk away is the Italian Quarter with lots of resturants. The rooms are large and comfortable. The pool is... More

I am a San Diego local and I am begging you...If you are planning to visit our GORGEOUS city, please DO NOT STAY HERE! If I could give this hotel 0 stars it would be too many.

I've always enjoyed being a tourist in my hometown - not sure if this was the best place to stay but I got a good deal. It's located in the back corner of Downtown not close to much.

The hotel is located next to the freeway. Obviously this makes for brilliant access but on the down turn makes the rooms overlooking the freeway very noisy. It is located a good 20 minutes walk from city centre, Galamp quarter, convention centre etc and at night it is not the best walk. Staff are very polite and helpful,l though not... More

Thank you for reviewing your recent stay. Some guest can find the highway noise to be disturbing, while many others think you can barely hear it.

This is my favorite property to earn SPG points in San Diego - it's a converted Holiday Inn circa 1960's round hotel - very few left in the country. Always greeted with warm service and huge smile on check in - recently renovated with new bathrooms - very fun cosy bar off the lobby. Service here will keep me coming... More

Don't stay here if you want to sleep past 6am. The hotel is right next to the highway and the off ramp wraps around it. To top it off, the hotel is round so everyone gets the noise. The staff is great and the wifi is good but that is it. The breakfast is not included in the price like... More

This hotel is truly the noisiest and most disturbing hotel I've ever stayed in. Even though I was staying on the 15th floor,  the noises from the adjacent rooms, highway,  and planes kept me up all night. The outside wasn't safe either with homeless everywhere. The hotel itself is old and really needs to be updated. Also, one day there... More

I'm a SPG Platinum member so I'm in my fair share of Starwood Properties. This property is a Holiday Inn. I usually stay in Downtown at the Westin Gaslamp or Westin San Diego, but both were booked up for a convention. I wanted to stay loyal to Starwood, so I gave this hotel a try for the night.
