The Bristol Hotel in downtown San Diego is a chic boutique inn in the heart of the city. A popular choice among convention goers and tourists alike, the hotel blends tradition with a contemporary flair. Blond wood floors and crown moldings showcase modern artwork by well-known Pop Art illustrators like Roy Lichtenstein and Peter Max. Rooms have a black-and-white theme with pops of red and framed black-and-white photos on the walls.

The hotel’s proximity to many of San Diego’s most popular sights is a major draw. Use the free Wi-Fi to map out a day of sightseeing. The historic Gaslamp Quarter, filled with restaurants, shops and nightlife, is a 12-minute walk south. The sprawling pedestrian-friendly waterfront area is a 15-minute walk from the hotel. Sports fans can walk to a San Diego Padres game at Petco Park, an 18-minute stroll south of the hotel.

On-site there’s an American bistro serving three meals a day and a fitness center to keep in shape away from home. The hotel uses environmentally friendly practices such as energy-efficient appliances and placing recycling bins throughout the common areas for guest use.
