We stayed for 6 nights and spent most of our time doing tourist activities, visiting the sites, discovering great places to dine, etc. The Bristol Hotel near Gaslamp Quarter was the perfect location for what we wanted to do. Transit from the hotel was exceptional… stops were close by for busses to Balboa Park, the San Diego Zoo, Fashion Valley Shopping Mall (Nordstroms is no longer downtown). We even bussed it back to the airport for our departure. Nearby Horton Plaza was a perfect place to sit outside, enjoy the cool breeze and a cold drink from Starbucks.
The Bristol staff are fantastic… upbeat, personable, interesting and interested in us, wanting to ensure we enjoyed our stay and their city. Everyone we encountered… front desk, breakfast room, bar, housekeeping, valets, etc… went out of their way to be friendly and do their best.
Our room was very comfortable. We splurged on a renovated Primo King which included a large sitting area so on extra hot days we could retreat and relax in our room.
We can’t say enough good things about this hotel and its great staff… thank you!More
