It's in the Gaslamp Ditrict so eerything is close by. I had to park my car in outdoor public parking overnight for an extra $30 because the property structure doesn't have parking for guests.

Beautiful Hotel with an amazing staff. I would definitely stay here again. the only issues I had was that the walls are paper thin and the lack of amenities… No Pool or Spa. The fireplace though was a wonderful touch!
