If you what you want is to explore downtown, this is a prime location. That’s about it. The rooms are okay, but nothing that would make it stand out from the next hotel.
Other Comments
Their check-in time is 4 pm, which I already think is ridiculous, considering their check-out time is still 11 am. Well on top of this, they didn’t have my room ready until 4:30 pm, which was completely inconvenient. They advertise their roof top pool as a highlight, because of their bar, but the Pool is incredibly small and there are only a few lounge chairs around it. The beer selection at the Pool bar is laughable, considering it is SD, and that just downstairs at JSix, the beer list on draft is superb. And to add insult to injury, it costs $49 to park there overnight ... PER NIGHT.

The location was right in the heart of the Gaslamp area, which made it easy access to all the restaurants, etc. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooftop pool/bar was fun!
Other Comments
The rooms were a little dated and dark. We had a room with apatio on the 4th floor which was great but , the windows and patio furniture needed attention .

We liked that it was very pet friendly.
Other Comments
We didn't like being on the 4th floor - really loud. Probably because that is the floor where the pool is located. The walls are very thin and I could hear laughing and people talking at all hours. The gym is like a closet - super tiny so we didn't get to work out. We checked in at 1230pm but knew that there was going to be a wait. Checkin is 4pm and when we came back at 2pm there were no rooms available which didn't make sense to me.
