Great place with nice ameneties. Nice breakfast location and delicious choices. Easy access on foot to Little Italy and harbour front. Location near freeway and busy service road makes for a noisy environment for the outdoor terrace area. Strangely things got pretty quiet after late evening so the room was peaceful for sleeping. Great treat with the Happy Hour featuring...

Hotel Vyvant was such a lovely place to stay on our last trip! The staff was so accommodating, and the location within walking distance to so many restaurants was fantastic. We also walked up to the zoo, and rented bikes to head over to the beaches. The one thing that could have been better was the wifi. We found that...

Reviewed 7 December 2014

After checking reviews on Trip Advisor I settled on this as a reasonably priced hotel not too far from the city centre. I have no regrets! I appreciated the thoughtfulness of the interior decoration and the friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff. The room was great and the breakfasts simple but enjoyable. I would certainly stay again.

My husband and I had a wonderful and relaxing time staying at the Hotel Vyvant. The room was clean, quiet, and the bed was extremely comfortable (often a challenge for us as we have a TempurPedic at home). We loved their delicious breakfast offerings of granola, pastries, and coffee from local San Diego purveyors on their well-appointed deck area. We...

Hotel Vyvant is a chic and welcoming hotel in the heart of Little Italy. Once a gritty area with a great Italian restaurant (Filippe's), Little Italy is now full of wonderful little restaurants, art galleries and interesting shops. Hotel Vyvant is part of the revival. It's clean and modern, with beautiful linens and comfy beds. The breakfast area has lots...

We had a wonderful stay. The very friendly staff (Ashley!) was busy putting up, what would become, some very nice Christmas decorations. Of course they stopped, got us registered right away and tucked into our lovely room (#P). Parking was easy. The only issue might be traffic noise, but we live in the country so our ears may be extra...

I stayed there for a week for a conference at the convention center. It was nervous that it would be to far, but it wasn't bad with public transportation. It is located in a cute neighborhood with lots of restaurants. I asked for a quiet room after reading several reviews as I am an extremely light sleep. I stayed in...

Our partner and I had a fantastic stay at Hotel Vyvant. Just a short walk from Little Italy, we were extremely impressed by the friendly and warm service, not to mention the gorgeous lobby and rooms.
