We are currently staying at this hotel and our room has no hot water. We contacted the front desk last night to let them know and they just told us “okay, we will contact our engineer.” Never called back or even apologized on the phone. This morning we woke up to get ready for the day and still do not have any water. My husband called down the the front desk again and spoke with Jason. Jason asked my husband if we have a car, so we could go somewhere else to shower, and basically said there was nothing else he could do for us. We are here for a work conference and cannot shower, and they are completely unwilling to work with us at all the rectify this situation.

Dear Navigator598648, Thank you for taking the time to share your valuable feedback. We take your feedback seriously and your experience this morning, having no hot water and your interaction with one of our team members are certainly not up to the level of service we strive to achieve with every guest. Please accept our deepest apologies. I encourage you to connect with our Guest Experience Manager, Beatriz Krause at 619.238.1818 whom I believe has spoken to your husband this morning and has responded to your email. Warm Regards, Annie Fitzgerald, General Manager

Johnny at the front desk was so helpful for my partner and I. We had originally checked into an Airbnb to explore the city, but it was a bust. We found ourselves calling hotels to try to find something in the middle of the night, but all were unable to help us or just unwilling. Not Johnny. He was warm, welcoming and made this hotel an oasis in the desert for us when we needed it most. He made us feel at home and singlehandedly spring-boarded our trip back to where it needed to be. Thank you, Johnny, for helping to make my birthday special.

It also has good proximity to Little Italy which we found very delightful.The rooms are clean.We had breakfast on the first floor.The food was very good.What we especially liked about the hotel was the desk service given to us by Sarah Contreras .She was very helpful about places to go and orienting us about what the hotel has to offer.After speaking with her we were comfortable in our surroundings.We would stay again.

It was our very first trip to San Diego for a very special occasion. As soon as we entered the hotel, it feels like we warped from Downtown San Diego all the way to Paris with all the chandeliers and art pieces scattered all over the hotel. The check in process went smoothly even though we arrived past midnight. The room was also very spacious for the price that we were paying which gave us quite a good shock. The staff of the hotel were very friendly and always very courteous. The front desk staff especially Sarah and Aldo were very helpful and always offered suggestions for us during the day. They even helped us with dining options aside from the one in their property and they were all amazing. Anamaria, Robert, and Charesse from the restaurant were always very attentive when it came to our table. They also made us feel special even though we aren't dining by greeting us every time we encounter them anywhere in the hotel. This hotel is filled with staff who really care and value their guests. These people are hard to find these days and should be cherished to keep the property blossoming into a better future. The team dynamic is very present since everyone is willing to extend a hand even though they aren't from that department. It is great to see people who enjoy doing their work as they will always perform their best no matter the situation they are in. We will definitely be back to enjoy everything that the hotel has to offer and hopefully get to see everyone again!
