I booked this hotel because of its location for my boyfriends bday. Plus I really liked the history of the building and how it looked. I rented a suite. When we arrived we were greeted very friendly by the valet and the front desk. Merry is a rockstar and a treasure for anyone who stays there. I told her it was my bfs bday and she broke out into a full song and dance!!!! Really made his day. Thanks Merry!!!! The room was very clean. We both were happy. It is a bit noisy. But your at the heart of the Gaslamp district. Restaraunts, clubs, bars, shopping. It’s all here within walking distance. There was quite a few homeless but they don’t bother anyone. Only issue we had was the ceiling above the shower started to leak around 2am. The hotel sent an employee up to check it out. Within the hour it had stopped. I think the person in the room above us might have let the water run over the bath. Not sure. I was comped for valet for the inconvenience and I was satisfied with that. Definitely will be back soon. Had a wonderful time. Oh and they have a patio up on the rooftop that’s b.y.o.b. What more could you want!? 9 out of 10. Great job Plaza Suites!!!!

Amazing historical building. Room size and view exceeded expectation. Roof top very unique. Breakfast could have more variety. Not much for someone who is gluten intolerant.
