Pleasant experience but wouldn't come back for the price: - One faucet in the vanity didn't work, the other one was covered in scum from not being cleaned - ALL window seating cushions were very dirty and covered with stains - Our tub (Imperiale suite); the glass hadn't been cleaned and had water spots all over it, the tub itself...

Although I am not impressed with the lobby and halls of the hotel (pretty dark/overdose of dark red), I was very impressed with the room and its interior. Great service by each member of staff. Would stay there again.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a weekend recently and were really impressed by the attentive staff and modern decor. We felt like we were staying in a lux European pent house ~DELUXEE~. The location was cool too. Downtown San Diego was manageable city-wise and the front desk folks had plenty of great restaurant and attraction advice. Can't wait...

When I arrived the morning of my first night's stay there was nobody at the front desk. I pulled up where a sign invited me to use the valet but there was no valet. So I parked my car with the blinkers on and waited. I went inside, nobody there. I went outside, nobody there. I asked a cleaning lady...

We were treated like second class citizens from the moment I pulled up to the curb and was ignored by the valet and the front desk. We unloaded our own car while the valet sat on a chair and watched, only to be told by the manager later that we were not allowed to use the luggage cart. This after...

The rooms are magnificent! Well laid out and enjoyable. You don't want to leave your room to head into the Gas Lamp area the rooms are so great! From the moment you walk in, you're in awe!

Hotel was awesome. The colors are great, makes the Hotel pop out!! There were a lot of restaurants and bars close the hotel so it was nice to be able to walk around and find new places. The only thing that would have made it nicer would have been if they had opened the Bar downstairs in the hotel.

This hotel could really use some tlc. Too bad because you can tell is was once amazing and has just not been maintained over the years. I have been put in the same run down dumpy room twice now and i won't go back because of this. Definitely consider one of the many modern hotels in the area.
