I previously had not stayed at this property due its location in suburban San Diego. It is 20-30 min from downtown San Diego and about that to Mission Bay, as well. However, don't let the location fool you; this is an amazing hotel. Recently built, no detail went overlooked. The property is well manicured and expertly maintained. The pools were a perfect temperature and the pool chairs/lounges were comfortable and kept in great condition. I stayed in some sort of mini suite which appeared to be the size of two regular rooms. Honestly, I cannot think of a single things wrong with the room; everything from furnishings to sheets to large bathrooms could not have been better. Bell and valet service was prompt. Front desk staff was attentive. The fitness room rivaled what you would expect at a full service gym. The restaurant food was good for dinner and great at breakfast, although the service at dinner was painfully slow and not very good. The five star restaurant on property has a dress code (which I could not meet being that I was in SD for a getaway weekend and who plans to wear a coat/tie on the weekend in SD??). I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again and have already recommended it to several others. Pricey, but in this instance you really do get what you pay for!
