Beautiful hotel. Friendly staff. BUT this is not a resort. It is an urban hotel. Resort fee is a ripoff. Hotel adjacent to very noisy tram. Do not stay here if you are s light sleeper. You WILL NOT sleep.

Very fancy decor. Not dated, but fancy. Comfortable bed. Windows even opened!! Too bad I had to keep them closed because the trams are so dang noisy. Bring your earplugs if you need to sleep past 5 a.m. The service was all you’d expect from $200/night but “turn down” is a bit

"Southern views are amazing! You can see Coronado bridge, island and all the fun sites of downtown including the ball park lit up at night."
"Best views are 15th floor and higher."
"We had the 16th floor so the view was nice"
"It's worth the money the upgrade to the top floors....and order a pot of coffee from room service."
"Make sure you contact Ms. Shraddha and she will make sure all your needs are met in the most professional manner"
