Map & Directions
Rooms & Rates
In the heart of San Diego’s urban center, hip culture meets old-world feel in Little Italy. Shoppers flock to the Little Italy Mercato Farmers’ Market on Saturdays to purchase fresh produce. Pasta, wine, burgers and delicious desserts are easily found at the area’s restaurants and pubs.
Start a vacation in the center of the action at Porto Vista Hotel. The location is a bit of a trek on foot to well-known attractions, but a 10-minute drive delivers guests to familiar sites like the San Diego Zoo and USS Midway Museum.
Stop in Glass Door Restaurant to take in views of the city and harbor from its location on the property's fourth floor. Nosh on a tempura shrimp wrap or sample a Mediterranean tasting plate. Market-fresh seafood, cocktails and sweets also adorn the menu. Breakfast and brunch are also served.
As the sun dips below the horizon, head back to a guest room where floor-to-ceiling murals adorn the walls and complimentary Wi-Fi access makes it easy to stay in touch. Some rooms offer guests views of the bay.
Make the most of the city with deals on gourmet meals, spa days and activities.
