The room has a doorbell - and odd people ringing it and visiting at random (a woman to tell us about the hi-tech stuff - which she didn't know about, another woman with a big of flip-flops and a man in a chef outfit bringing us unrequested coffee and Nutella (why?), a mirror over the shower (which turns on at random), lots of sex stuff and an extremely overpriced virtual mini-7Eleven. Beware! The incredibly overpriced Wine is NOT complimentary! Take a survival kit: flashlight (to find your way to the bed in the dark), bed lamps for reading (lights are in the very high ceiling only and turn off over by the door), hand towels, and hand soap (there are none); a makeup light (can't get within a foot of the mirror), and earplugs (the Blues bar below begins its ear piercing wailing at 9pm and doesn't stop until 2:30am). The breakfast room area with ATM, piano and mini-workout room was interesting - but also strange. How can they not notice that there is a toaster but no bread and packaged oatmeal but no microwave? The pastry and coffee were tasty, however. It was also strange to leave the car with a valet who whisked it away to parts unknown where we would not be able to retrieve any forgotten item. Other than that - and the shredding bath towels, it was a good location for walking around a bustling and charming area of San Diego.
