The lobby was nice and had a relax home feel to it. When we decide to go visit San Diego again hotel Vyvant is where we...

Great facility, very friendly staff and good price. BUT it all comes with many shorcomings. 1. EXTREMELY noisy location. Right by the turnoff ramp to Interstate Freeway (both directions, so you get ALL traffic coming out of Downtown). To add to this problem, there's a set of lights by the hotel, with a road going sharply uphill, so all vehicles...

Stayed in this charming hotel for 6 nights, and it was amazing! Loved the hardwood flooring and the kitchenette. The decor was adorable, and the staff was so pleasant and helpful. I was pleasantly surprised by the complimentary breakfast: pastries, granola, yogurt, muffins, orange juice, and I especially appreciated that they had soy milk. The only downside of the hotel...

I just stayed her for my sixth or seventh time in about as many years. (I started staying here when it was new and called Little Italy Inn.) It never disappoints. The rooms are great (the bed is awesome) and the staff is consistently nice. (Actually, they're more than nice; they're sweet.)

I hate staying in average hotels and always look for the smaller boutique ones, this was such a pleasant surprise! Driving from LA to San Diego we found Hotel Vyvant on a web search last minute. When we called the person at the front desk was more than just helpful, he was pleasant to talk with, helping us with directions...

I stayed here with my family for a conference. The complimentary pastries for breakfast and granola were amazing. The staff were also very nice, they printed out many forms for us and gave us advice on places to go etc. But the cleaning staff did a a terrible terrible job. It seemed as if they didn't even sweep or vacuum...

I stayed there with my daughter so we could attend SDSU's orientation day, as she will be a freshman there next month. Everyone was so lovely, youthful, smiling, here is my daughter's comment as we closed our room door behind us: "wow, I feel like I just arrived to stay with my older sister's friends for a few days, it...

My husband and I stayed for one night.... and now we're planning a longer stay at the Hotel Vivant. This place is wonderful.... absolutely adorable, super clean, great staff. Even the little bottles of shampoo, bars of soap, etc are not the average amenities. Everything was far better than I expected.... my only disappointment was we had to leave! Next...

If you want to experience Little Italy, and be close to the harbor (and Maritime Museum), this quaint little hotel is the perfect place. Rooms are unique in the most charming way, and the women at the desk could not have been more gracious and kind. The happy hour was a big plus (local brews, humus and cheese from the...
