Why We Love This Hotel

  • A complimentary daily social features local craft brews and wines from 5-6 p.m., and the hotel has free bikes on which to explore town
  • The hotel is pet-friendly and goes above and beyond for four-legged friends, including offering designer dog beds
  • Upper East Bar -- the hotel's rooftop terrace -- is a great pick for poolside lounging or enjoying cocktails with a view of the Gaslamp Quarter all day
  • Over 100 restaurants and entertainment venues are located within 5 miles of the hotel

"Check in was easy, service was good & not one issue. My only complaint was the bartender in Jsix wasn’t that great & he had a little attitude."

Our room was gorgeous, and the tub was a great surprise! My husband noted on the reservation that we were there for my 50th birthday, and the staff left a lovely note and champagne/strawberries - such a nice touch. We checked in with Chela and she was amazing with suggestions for dinner, and gave us a few discount cards. She did not steer us wrong. Overall, a great stay and they made my birthday awesome!

Hotel is updated and rooms are very spacious. Bathrooms were a little small but otherwise the rooms were great. Great coffee bar in the lobby every morning, specialty coffee for purchase but regular coffee was free as well as iced tea and lemonade and a water station in the afternoons. Happy hour in the lobby was great as well. The restaurant wasnt open all the time so that was a little wierd, didnt really eat there because we didnt know when they would be open or closed. The bar by the pool was great, happy hour deals were really good. Very close to PetCo park if you are going to a ball game and within walking distance to all the restaurants in the gaslamp district.

The room didn’t have my wash cloths - I found that to be kind of odd.

I booked 2 rooms and when I got there they said I had 3 rooms. They weren't helpful at all. I had to do all the legwork myself to clear it up. Then they said they would text me when room was available. I recieved text and when I came back, they said text was a mistake.

After telling the manager about our mattress that was dipping on the middle, we switched rooms and were upgraded to a deluxe room that was just perfect. Everyone was so helpful and lovely - From the house cleaners to the front desk staff to Anna, our favorite manager. Will definitely stay again!
