We stayed here from 8/1 to 8/4/11. The room was very large with 2 very comfy queen beds. The room decor was very clean, modern and seemed very new. Flat screen TV (basic cable channels) was large. The bathroom was amazing because it had seemed recently redone with nice tile and VERY large counter space. The sink/counter area is separated from the tub/toilet area by a door, which can be good or bad depending on your preferences. We had the harbor side and the view out the patio was very scenic. We only heard one very loud plane take off during the night from the military base across the bay. The room is worth the price. Added bonuses include the free breakfast every morning (eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, bread, cereal, coffee, juice). I only wished they had pancakes every morning as that is a kid's favorite. The location is very convenient to all of San Diego and its attractions. They seem to have concerts next door at Humphrey's, but honestly I didn't hear anything at night. Parking is excellent at the hotel.
My only concern is the Wi-fi. You can only pick up the signal from the lobby. It does not reach the rooms, although the front desk said it is supposed to. I wasn't the only one with their laptop in the lobby trying to get the signal. That is why I do not give this hotel a 5 star rating. Invest in some more boosters and routers and your guests will be happy!
Also, I would make it a policy for those having gigantic behemoths of cars be required to park in the underground parking. They do not fit properly in the hotel parking and stick out too much. It makes it very hard for the other guests to maneuver around those dinosaurs.
I also rated sleep quality only a 4, because apparently Sasquatch lives above on the second floor. If you are bothered by Sasquatches having bowling tournaments on the floor above, ask for 2 second story room and not lower level. The person(s) staying above us must have had lead feet because we heard EVERY step.
