Sofia Hotel

Posted Jul 20, 2017 on Expedia
Pros: Location
Cons: Disclose all fees on Expedia before I book it.
We needed a place to stay next to the Spreckels theater -this place is close and nice enough. Room was tiny (bathroom was like a closet). Elevators very small as well. Beware - they tacked on $15 in extra charges beyond the Expedia quoted price.

Thank you for your review, Marc. Great to hear the location was convenient for you. For future reference, if you need a larger room, we have suites available and I am sure you would enjoy them. Hope to see you the next time your travels take you to San Diego.

well situated.

Posted Jul 18, 2017 on Expedia
Nice hotel. Well situated for walking to Gas Lamp District, Little Italy and SeaPort Village. Staff were pleasant when checking in and if you asked them a question but didn't acknowledge our presence whenever we either left or returned to the hotel. Small detail perhaps but a 'hello' or 'have a great day' goes a long way to my idea of providing great service. We did have one minor issue. We had returned to our room after being out most of the day to find that we had no towels. I called reception and they told me they would have some sent up 'immediately'. Two hours later we still didn't have any so I went down to the desk and told them we were still waiting. The man I spoke to said 'oh my goodness I'll get that sorted straight away and I will let Housekeeping know because that's quite bad'....gee, ya think?!!! Despite that I think we would still here again. The restaurant at the front of the hotel (Currant) is excellent. I can highly recommend the mussels and frites.

Hello, Steve - Thank you for taking the time to review The Sofia. It's great to hear you enjoyed the location, but I am sorry to hear about the challenge with the towels in your room. It is unacceptable, and we will work hard to resolve the issue. We will look forward to seeing you the next time your travels take you to San Diego

Clean room in a well located area

Posted Jul 17, 2017 on Hotels
Nice hotel. Had a room by the elevator, and you could hear the mechanics of the elevator all night. Not too bad though, still had a good night sleep. It could be bothersome of you are a light sleeper though.

Good location near airport, small rooms

Posted Jul 17, 2017 on Expedia
Pros: Good location in Gaslamp and near the aiport (about 15 minutes).
Cons: Couldn't be improved, but no food service and small rooms.
Staff was pleasant and happy to serve - allowed for late checkout even with full occupancy the next day. The rooms are very clean and pleasant, but small. The bed felt more like a double than a queen.
