I must say, I can't wait to review this hotel. I am a little surprise that with the boutique feel attached to a known brand of IHG, you'd think that they have it all together. It's Spring break for my kids so San Diego is a good destination not too far from home. I saw it on TripAdvisor wanting to stay close to the ocean. Stayed at Del Mar location before so we opt to stay at this here instead of their Gaslamp branch. Booked on their website for couple of day over Easter. I signed up to their e-upgrades with additional price that are quite a deal. Checked in day, no bell person or staff asked us to help with our luggage. We are family of 4. Checked in, Jeff was pretty welcoming, however, didn't acknowledge me as a member as well as the e-upgrades I signed up for until I asked for it. Breakfast e-upgrade is a credit so you have to pay the difference or used up everything. There's no buffet breakfast, a la carte only. Room is okay. We got 2 beds and a very tiny bathroom. I have 2 young kids and they are complaining that it's too tight. Size of a closet. They don't have HBO or any upgraded cable, just standard. Temperature is controlled via AC unit by the window. We ate breakfast for 2days. Meal size is big, can be shared and very tasty, however, service is a little slow. Even though, there are only handful of tables. Day 2 breakfast was little better with Brace our server and Chef Eric cooking the meals. It was delicious. We used the pool and the pool towels are smaller than your bath towels and the material is so cheap as if it was dish towel. We had to use more towels. Another issue was charges on my credit card, I got pending charges 3x on my card that my card alerted me as fraud. Very strange.
However, I am giving them a 3 star as the hotel aesthetically is nice, location is good. We slept pretty well in their beds. Ample free parking space and free Wi-Fi. Security too is strict so we feel safe.
