It was a great get-away. The staff was courteous and respectful. The rooms were clean. We had an amazing view of the ocean. We didn't know the area that well but the staff was helpful. They directed us to the boardwalk. Just a short walk to Sea Port Village. The people were friendly. We did have an issue where we were charged twice for parking. However, the Manager was right on it and they fixed the issue immediately.

Thank you Marriott you are the Best!!!

We found this hotel mostly disappointing in terms of quality/price range.
We arrived around 9 pm and the young and nice girl at the reception had to carry our luggage by herself .We were expecting a bellboy knocking at our door.. We weren't expecting that from a Marriott. She's been really nice and professional as the bartender and most of the staff. Double Standard Rooms are pretty much average. Room fridge, empty. Room Service ends at 11 pm .
Building is beautiful and location in the city is perfect for visitors.

This hotel used to be an old bank, which gives it lots of character and interesting features inside. Perfect location for the Gaslamp Quarter and a good base to explore the city from.
Rooms are a good size; very comfy and loads of light making it easy to forget you're right in the middle of the city. Would definitely stay here again.

Parking in San Diego is expensive, and it's $38 per night for valet parking, but it's easy enough to pull up right outside and leave your car with the valet.

Room Tip: I can imagine the higher up the better. We were on the 24th floor and noise was minimal from outside...

iheartKL, Thank you for your review. I am glad to hear you enjoyed your visit with us in San Diego. Parking in Downtown can be difficult, but I am glad you were able to utilize our valet parking which offers 24/7 access and unlimited in and out privileges. Although we are the Historic bank building in the Gaslamp, we only have 12 stories. Whichever floor you were on, I am glad that being in the bustling Downtown area did not affect you. I hope you choose to stay with us on your next visit.

Myself and my family stayed at this hotel for four nights in early August. The room we sufficiently big for all four of us. We had a double room with city view. City view as not amazing but it was better at night. The beds were very comfortable and the cleaning was to a very high standard. The staff in the hotel were very pleasant and gave some really nice recommendations for restaurants in the area. We had one small problem with the pocket door into the bathroom which was jamming but a very pleasant maintenance man came and fixed the problem - thanks Occho. There is a Starbucks in the lobby but the hotel also offers breakfast which we had one day and it was really nice if you don't fancy standing in line at one of the more popular breakfast establishments in the area. Not direcly linked to the hotel review but just some extra advice, we stayed in the Gaslamp area because we had understood that it was the place to stay in San Diego. I would agree that perhaps it is if you are under 30 but my advice if you are older or with a family it would be better to stay closer to the Marina. At the weekend the Gaslamp area is party central. The hotel is within walking distance of the Marina, the Conference Centre and Balboa Park.

VLLVBelgium, Thank you for your kind review. I’m sure Ocho will be glad to hear that he was able to assist you. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us as well as our restaurant. We do use local farms and have a special handcrafted menu different from most Courtyards. Being in the Gaslamp we are near the local night life on the weekends, but we are also convenient to local transportation and attractions. Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. I hope you choose to stay with us again on your next trip to San Diego.

This is a really great hotel! It's an old bank that was constructed into a hotel and as a result it's the best Courtyard I have stayed at in terms of decor. The service is great. I misplaced my camera and the staff went above and beyond trying to assist me in relocating it which I thankfully did. Take a right out of the hotel and then another right and you're in Gaslamp, an area of San Diego where some of the best bars and restaurants are located.

Stayed here 2 nights. Hotel is converted out of an old office building but rooms are still good size. We got room facing away from busy street so not sure how noisy it can be, but are room was very quiet just no view. Parking is 26 a night but thats typical rate in city. We choose to use public transportation in san diego cause its very easy to use and reliable. Staff is all very friendly and helpful and location is great if planning on walking down gaslamp and hitting bars and restaurants.
