This hotel is in an old bank and the lobby is beautiful. It feels grand and could easily be a higher branded hotel. The only negative is the location is just north of the gaslamp district, which starts to feel a little bit rough around the edges. Location: The location is good and walkable to gaslamp, but you are on the rough side of it. At night, it doesn't feel great walking around outside of the hotel. Cleanliness: Perfect Service: The staff was great and extremely friendly. Valet was quick and easy with a great text function that was very responsive. Rooms: They were a little run down, but very nice in general and met all expectations. Final Notes: If you want a nice budget hotel, this is a perfect place. It's right next to the US Grant which charges twice as much for a very similar experience. I'd highly recommend this to someone looking to enjoy gaslamp, but save a few dollars without giving up quality of the hotel.

Decided to stay here due to the convenient location and great reviews. I just checked in to nice staff, but the room is terrible. I’m in a 1 bedroom king suite on the 8th floor and so many things are off that I had to write a review. Here’s what’s wrong with the room so far: - stepped into a room that smelled of strong BO. Called to try and change rooms, but they only had three other similar rooms. Problem was my son was a little scared of the other rooms as the hallways are a bit dark so we decided to stay put. - phone wasn’t connected so we had to get behind the table to get the cord to plug in phone - TV wasn’t plugged in so had to get behind the dresser to plug - once we plugged the tv in, it was just static so had to call maintenance - shower drains are clogged so our showers were like a foot bath. - opened up fold out sofa bed and the sheets from a prior occupant was still there...... I just took them off and placed it outside the room. I’m stunned that so many items fell through the cracks. Hopefully this is an isolated incident.....

Covid tip: If you want to work out, make sure you schedule your time AS SOON AS YOU ARRIVE. Only 1 person can use the fitness center at a time and you can only book 1 day in advance. The view sadly was not great. Staff friendly and helpful. You're right next to a 7 Eleven and the Gaslamp district which is great!

It was a bit hard to find the hotel at first but in the end, I did find it. What will help if you are driving yourself have your navigation end at the House of Blue San Deigo (since it is on the side of the building where the valet is. The lobby is beautiful, especially with the restored interior. The person who checked me in was very helpful and got me checked in very quickly. The elevator bank was really cool. My room was fantastic, as was the view. The bed was very big and comfortable. The bathroom was well appointed. The view was spectacular and unparalleled; both during the day and at night. with spectacular views of the Gaslamp, Petco Stadium, the convention center, and the waterfront area. You have to schedule a time for the staff to "refresh" the room so they can not be in there with you. The downside was that the “blackout” curtains didn’t really work that well. The area itself was perfect, and with many things within 30 minutes of walking. There was plenty of choices for food in a 15-minute walk. The is also a CVS and a 7-Eleven within 2 blocks of the hotel. The fitness center is by the "Safty Depot box room" and the machines are well kept. Additionally, they have a rule in place to only let one person in (to workout) at a time, for an hour at a time (with space in between so the hotel staff can clean/disinfect). I highly recommend this hotel
