“Reasonable price, wonderful accommodation”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

I stayed at Hotel Vyvant for a night during a long layover and had a marvelous experience. The room was clean, pleasant & comfortable. The bed was the most comfortable I've slept on in years (so much so that I even checked the company that manufactured the pillows...ahhhh).

The only potential red flag is for light sleepers. My room was on the corner of the building facing State St & throughout the night I woke up several times to excessive honking and loud cars/motorcycles.

Extra bonus points for deluxe shower goods and locally sourced breakfast items (don't miss the Safari Crunch granola!). I really enjoyed my stay at Vyvant & look forward to coming back soon!

I was in town for a conference and had a wonderful experience with Hotel Vyvant! The facilities are beautiful and very clean. I opted for an economy queen room with a shared bathroom to save money. I was a little concerned about sharing the bathroom space, but I never had any problems!
The staff are INCREDIBLE!! They are genuinely nice and friendly. I asked for restaurant and beach recommendations each day I was there and they were very helpful.
The breakfast is wonderful! They have a selection of fresh, local pastries, granola, and greek yogurt, as well as locally roasted coffee.
I recommend this spot to anyone and everyone looking for a place to stay near downtown San Diego!!

I highly recommend this as a destination hotel for any reason that you need. The hotel provided bath robes that were comfortable and soft. Our room was spotlessly clean, the staff was more than friendly and helpful with any and all requests during our stay. The breakfast provided was fresh and very adequate. All in all, the hotel was pleasant, cute, and perfectly located for any travel needs in San Diego.

Sent my parents for their 36th wedding anniversary. They loved it! From the moment they got there to the moment they left. The way it they were greated, the layout of each room, every detail caught my parents eyes. They were absolutely delighted and are already asking when they can go back.

A lovely hotel, very nice style. Comfortable and endearing, the total package. It's super close to the airport so if you have a two hour wait for your rental car at 11 pm like I did, you can walk to the hotel and get the car in the morning.

Room Tip: The rooms with bathroom in the hallway aren't bad at all. It's just because it's a build...

We spent a three day weekend at Hotel Vyvant. The location was perfect, close to Balboa Park, Little Italy, and the water.
Pros: Pet-friendly, giant bathtub, friendly staff, cozy lobby area with treats.
Cons: noisy alley under our window, noisy AC, parking
