“Pleasant stay”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

I enjoy cooking, so the 1 bedroom suite with full kitchen was just what i was looking for. When i didnt have the right tools or supplies on hand the front desk and cooking staff (Elizabeth, Amber, and Cathleen) went out of their way to assist me. Everyone I had contact with was pleasant and truely wished to provide the best stay possible. If possible, I would stay here on my next trip to San Diego.

My stay in this hotel was pretty standard, the room was clean, the bed was comfortable, everything worked. To me, what makes this hotel particularly convenient is that everything is so centralized. It is a high-rise building and has adequate and ample free underground parking. The access is easy, you only need your room key, and there is no charge. The rooms are nothing extraordinary. The hotel itself is very new, so all the fixtures are sparkling clean and fully functional. I would certainly stay here again.

All the service representatives were, helpful, informed & tried their best to satisfy our every request. Inparticular, we'd like to acknowledge Amber & Cathleen, who served meals in the self serve dining area. They were constantly refilling buffet choices, making sure every guest had enough of what was offered & were so pleasant!
They deserve recognition.
Also the TV repairman, came to our room right after we called for help with our set.
All of these services, by the staff, were greatly appreciated.

My husband & I needed a little break from the routine & were looking for some place close that would still make us feel like we were on vacation. This was the perfect spot! The hotel was clean, modern and the staff was exceptional. Evan, the asst. manager, was extremely friendly & genuinely interested that we have a good time on our stay. The front desk person really gave thought to just the right room that would fit our request which we appreciated. The evening social had refreshing beer & wine after a hot day, and tasty appetizers. That got our evening started before going out to dinner. There are many options in Del Mar to eat at.
The next morning, we enjoyed our hearty breakfast before heading out to enjoy the day.
We definitely recommend this hotel for locals who want a change of pace, as well as out of town visitors. You won't regret it!

My husband and I live in the San Diego area, and experienced an accidental flood when a fire sprinkler head broke and flooded our house. We stayed for a month at this hotel while our floors and walls were replaced. It was truly an exceptional experience. Evan who is the manager was very welcoming as well as kind and understanding when we were still pretty much in shock over our predicament. We were able to meet other families in similar situations at the great cocktail hours Monday-Wednesday! He and the staff helped us out in every way, and honestly, I will miss all of them!!

Hi Lynn,

Thank you so much for your review!! It was truly a pleasure getting to know you and the rest of your family over the past month. The entire staff will definitely miss seeing you at the happy hour, as well as your dogs coming through the lobby with a giant stick in their mouths. Tell your son best of luck in Medical School for me. We hope that you will think of us next time you have family or friends visiting the San Diego area. I wish you a smooth transition adjusting back into your home. Stop by sometime and say hello.

Sincerely,

I stayed in this hotel for more than 2 months, and I did not find a single instance to complain - what more can I say?

Everything was so prompt, clean and efficient, I got used to it after a while, so I can't gush about anything.

What I will remember is the very courteous hotel personnel. All of them are very very good.

My special thanks to Michelle. It was a pleasure interacting with her. She goes out of her way to help.

When I come back to San Diego, I will stay here. No questions about that.

The staff, from the front desk to housekeeping, was friendly and helpful. Amazingly, housekeeping was already on the elevator with us when we first went up to the room in order to promptly take care of our special requests.

Evan, the manager, made us feel that he would do anything to make sure our stay was a very positive experience. The rest of the staff had the same attitude.

The room was clean and comfortable. With a full kitchen, a definite plus for families looking to limit the costs of eating out.
