This boutique style hotel is centrally located in San Diego's exciting Gaslamp Quarter. We invite you to step back in time to the elegant comforts, friendly hospitality and impeccable service of a bygone era. Opened in 1913 as the St. James Hotel, San Diego's original high-rise luxury hotel, our beautifully restored property is an oasis of historic style for leisure and business travelers. We are 6 1/2 blocks from San Diego's waterfront convention center. It's a pleasant 7 minute walk from the hotel.

Being a Ramada Inn managed by Wyndham I had higher expectations. When we arrived, parking was confusing. The room was very old and cramped for two people. Carpeting and furniture was worn, yet the bed was comfortable. Housekeeping forgot to replace the towels, though they

It's a historic building so I expected the rooms and bathrooms to be small but here they're made to feel smaller because of all the clumsey add- ons like the window unit air conditioner, big bulky multi-outlets on the desk and bedside tables, and the really heavy floor to

The “suites” are a one-bedroom closet of nastiness. We stayed three nights and we didn’t even get towels and turn down the 2nd night we stayed. Carpets are nasty and need updating. Overall poor experience, will never return.

Really neat place, was able to go to rooftop and see the entire city. The hotel has lots of charm, and very good staff. The rooms need to be updated, painted, a little more modern feel would be nice. The furnace, Window units, curtains/blinds need to go.

Hi. I am wondering if this hotel has a guest laundry.
There is a pay and park right next to the hotel but there are no in and out privileges. The cost for pay and park will overall cost about the same or more than hotel valet, depending on how many times you exit and repay, and what day of the week you are staying. The hotel valet is $27 a night with in and out privileges.

Hi, what is the parking situation for the hotel? Thanks!
The hotel only offers valet parking. Parking is a $20.00 fee per day, that includes in-and-out privledges. This is by far the best price in the Gaslamp. There is street metered parking and parking lots in the area. Please place close attention to the street and lot signage.

Do they have walk in showers/wet rooms, please.
Some rooms have walk in showers. Other rooms have bathtub/shower combination. In addition we have an ADA Accessible room with a shower with wheel in access. Please place a request in your reservation, if you need a walk in shower.

"High up in back, there are nightclubs all around the hotel."
"As long as you are not next to the elevator its great the elevator is over 100 years old, makes the whole stay awesome"
