They brought us a new remote when ours wasn’t working properly. They also brought us more pillows when we called the front. They were very quick on both accounts! They also offer a complimentary happy hour with a full bar from 5:30-7:30PM ever night!

Close to it all!

Pros: Location! Full breakfast buffet with cooked to order, eggs and the afternoon reception was a plus I did not expect.
Cons: We were on the top floor (12th) and some times we had to run the shower for a few minutes to get hot water but it was fine as soon as it got up there.
Location: Waterfront museums, Balboa Park, Gaslamp, Airport. Parking is pricey everywhere downtown so we took Lyft everywhere cost us 1/2 the money it would of
This is our 4th time visiting San Diego but the first time downtown. Location is A+. Walked every day to all the sights on the water front and Downtown Gaslamp. Jump on Jump off bikes conveniently located and you are centrally located to all beaches, entertainment and free activities. If you want to go swimming at the beach you do have to leave downtown. One thing we did was take the water taxi/ferry one block away to Coronado for a day, rented bikes and explored there too.

Great location, great price!

Pros: Location and view
Cons: Manager's Reception
Location: Conveniently located with restaurants and local sights within walking distance
This hotel is located in a convenient location. I was lucky enough to have a room that overlooked the bay and it was fantastic. Breakfast was plentiful with several options. The manager's reception was not quite as impressive and it was the same foods each evening which was a little disappointing. However, that was a small disappointment compared to the overall quality of the hotel!

Nice hotel, outdated but clean.

Cons: It should be updated
Location: Great location, harbor, seaport village and gaslamp quarter all within walking distance.
We had a great experience overall. The hotel was clean, staff was friendly. We did not like the fact that we had to use valet service and it was an additional daily charge. The hotel is in a nice location downtown, walking distance to the harbor, seaport village and gaslamp quarter. Many restaurants close by. The daily breakfast and evening reception were a definite bonus!

Beware add on fees

Everything was as you'd expect at a Embassy Suites, clean and roomy. Only real complaint is the $46/day parking add on. I'm becoming accustomed to these a la carte charges, $46/day seems excessive on top of your inflated room price for a good location. Please do us a favor and just add the cost to your rate! Not the kind of surprise a vacationer wants to get. Leaves a poor impression of the entire hotel.
