A little Gem that should not be overlooked

This boutique hotel was absolutely perfect, there is some superb character to this hotel, situated right in the heart of the gaslamp quarter and within walking distance ot the convention centre and the famouns San Diego Pier, The staff were very friendly and informative and the twists and turns in the corridors added to the ambience. I would most definately be back to visit.

What a cutie!

Wonderful stay at this totally modern yet historic hotel. The beds could not have been better. The room was perfectly clean and stayed that way throughout our stay thanks to the maid service. The hotel itself is filled with thoughtful touches that go above and beyond. An example is that the elevator passes little mini "rooms," set pieces of historic rooms with antiques. Something to look at during the ride! The only sour note was the valet runners. They absolutely could not get it together!! One day they took over 40 minutes to bring our car. Others got immediate service. On checkout they brought the wrong car then insisted we should "wait our turn" for them to try again. No tip, no love! Overall, a great little hotel within walking distance of the whole Gaslight district. Suggest 222 for breakfast (one block to left) but be prepared to wait in line on a weekend.

There is a great "Mexican gourmet sandwich" shop on 4th 1/2 block to the right. Amazing, simple food at the cheapest price in the district. Check it out when you don't feel fancy. I particularly recommend the Carne Asada and Carnitas
