We chose this hotel based on the proximity to SDSU, San Diego State University. We drove to San Diego to drop our kid off to college there and this was a quick 10 minute drive from campus. We were upgraded due to our Gold Marriott Status to an incredibly large two-story room that had 2 full beds, 2 bath, a...
