Classy and fun place to stay. We really liked the location right on the edge of the Gaslamp Quarter. There was so much within walking distance. We also liked the 207 bar and MaryJane's. We got great service from everyone who helped us, from the parking valet all the way to checkout. It was lively during the day, but quieted down for sleeping hours.
