We loved this hotel, only complaint was the parking and not having enough time to spend here.
The parking didn't turn out to be a huge issue, but the underground garage which we were prepared to pay $25 a day for was full. Luckily we found a parking spot, which can be difficult in the city, but we parked a couple blocks away and dragged our luggage back.
The rooms are VERY quaint... some people would say tiny, but after traveling through Europe, I appreciate the simplicity and loved the decor. Very high-end finishes, a ridiculously comfortable bed and a waterfall shower made our stay enjoyable. The Wi-Fi was very spotty, as you're sharing from a connection in the cafe below... so just beware if you're on a business trip, you might have to go elsewhere for a better connection.
All-in-all, we definitely plan on revisiting this little gem, in the PERFECT location on Little Italy, walking distance to tons of shops and great restaurants, and only a 5-10 minute drive to downtown and all the great sites of San Diego!
