The Sofia Hotel

150 W Broadway, San Diego - Map
"Wonderful boutique hotel"
The Sofia is extremely charming and welcoming. The staff is accommodating, the facilities are very comfortable, and the location is close to the harbor and to Gaslamp. Be sure to snag a corner room, city facing....the extra windows make the small room feel more open.

Wyndham San Diego Bayside - San Diego Hotels
Rating: 3.5 Stars

Wyndham San Diego Bayside

1355 N Harbor Drive, San Diego - Map
This hotel is right on the harbor and walking distance from the Star of India and the Midway. It was less money than other downtown hotels. The restaurant is apparently being redone, so the only place to eat in the hotel was a cafe. They did have room service, which we did not use. We did get dessert at the cafe and enjoyed it. The room was clean and comfortable. Our keys turned off before we checked out, so when we got back after walking to a nearby restaurant for breakfast, we could not get into our room. There was a hotel staff member nearby who was very helpful. she did not want to just let us into the room (good for security) so she tried calling the front desk to get confirmation. It took a long time before we were let into the room. We we checked out a little while later, we let the front desk know. It was actually a pretty big inconvenience, if we had had a plane to catch, the amount of time it took to get back in the room could have been disastrous. It would have been nice if the front desk offered some compensation. I mentioned that, and he apologized again, but did not offer anything.

"Very clean!"
Our stay at the Holiday Inn Express in San Diego was awesome! We used to the gym everyday and it was great. Our room was very clean; it was as if no one had ever stayed in it before. All of the staff was very nice and we will definitely be back.

Hotel Z A Piece of Pineapple Hospitality - San Diego Hotels
Rating: 3.0 Stars

Hotel Z A Piece of Pineapple Hospitality

521 6th Ave, San Diego - Map
"Nice low-key hotel in the Gaslamp District"
We had a great stay at Hotel Z. It is a smaller, quieter hotel than many of the large high-rise hotels in the area. Therefore the service is very personalized and efficient. Despite it's "boutique" size, the amenities are wonderful. Everything you need including great products, robes, slippers, thick towels, wonderful bedding, and daily pineapple cupcakes! The staff is wonderful. Very helpful in advising on area attractions and good places to go. The location is awesome, right in the heart of the Gaslamp District and very convenient to the convention center. Tons of great restaurants in the area. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to my friends.

Hotel Indigo Gaslamp Quarter

"lovely hotel, close to gas lamp"
This is a lovely hotel in a great location. The rooms are good sized, the bed is comfy, and the bathroom and shower are really large, especially for a San Diego hotel. The location is close enough to be an easy walk to everything - Gas Lamp area, Market Street, trolley stops, but far enough away to be quiet. I would definitely stay here again!

Bristol Hotel - San Diego Hotels

Bristol Hotel

1055 1st Ave, San Diego - Map
"Boutique Hotel with Excellent Staff"
My overall rating is 3.5 stars. While the front desk staff's service was excellent, the place is a bit worn down and mattress seemed aged/old and has lost its firmness. In what seems to be a cabinet for a small refrigerator, it was vacant with no back panel which gave me the impression that they used to make refrigerators available in the past. When I stay at a hotel for more than couple nights, I like to have a refrigerator to keep my water bottles cold and miscellaneous food items fresh. I couldn't believe their fitness center - a tiny room with couple treadmills and hardly any equipments and not exactly conducive for more than 1 to 2 people to use at a time. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who does not need the amenities mentioned in this review as it is conveniently located in gaslamp district and again, staff's excellent service makes up for other areas where they lack. Their restaurant was nice although it's with just one bartender serving the entire bar area plus the general dining area. As a foodie, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of their food and this is another aspect that makes it worthwhile to stay with this hotel when visiting downtown San Diego.
