The Hotel Bristol is right across the street from the San Diego Convention Center, which is where I took the CA Bar Examination in July 2013 (along with 700 other folks). Many of us booked rooms at the Bristol, which was a fantastic choice for those not wanting to deal with parking, etc. during the exam. Warning: daily parking fills up very early at the Bristol if you're planning to valet park here during the exam.
The rooms at the Bristol are comfortable and well-appointed, but the best thing about the Bristol is Debra Sanderlin, Conference and Administrative Manager, on the second floor. Ms. Sanderlin assisted both myself and a friend who (idiotically) lost our admissions tickets to the Bar exam. Without Ms. Sanderlin's help, we both would have had to wait another 6 months to complete the exam, hence pushing our careers back by about one year.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. Your kindness will never be forgotten.More
