    I don't believe that pets are allowed at the Grande Colonial, but the Sheraton and upscale Valencia hotel both cater to dogs.

    Hello, I am going to stay in San Diego for four nights in April and locating a hotel that is in a very safe neighborhood is my first priority. Another concern I have is after reading so many reviews I found out that parking is somehow difficult, so how much it will cost me to park at your hotel?
