Perfect Gaslamp Quarter Hotel

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights for our 20th anniversary. It was the perfect stay. The hotel is fascinating. The staff were so excited to show us around and tell us the history of this beautifully restored landmark. The rooms were immaculate! The beds were so comfortable. The room service breakfast was delicious! Truly a perfect stay. I am definitely staying here every time I visit San Diego. Marriott knows how to run their hotels!

Perfect Couple Gaslamp Getaway

The staff was amazing, so helpful from showing us the history of the hotel to recommending places to eat. We ordered breakfast from room service and it was fantastic. The room was beautiful, the hotel is beautiful. It does not have a pool because of it's historical status, but who needs a pool in the Gaslamp Quarter anyway?!?

Friends trip

I had a great experience at the marriot. It was a easy checking process and there was no line to worry about. It was very close to the gaslamp and also to petco park. The only bad thing about it is parking, they charger too much for parking and is per day. I wish they should charge that much to guests.

Great Service

I spent one night at this hotel and the service was excellent! The staff was very nice and a welcoming experience after a long day of traveling. The location is ideal for exploring the gas light district of San diego. There are many bars and restaurants near by but far enough away to be out of the thick of things. Perfect location if you like to take mass transit to/from airport and to other locations in San Diego. A beautiful first-class lobby.

Beautiful hotel!

This hotel was built as a bank in 1926 and they have preserved much of it, including the marble, wood, doors, decorative ceilings, old phone rooms, and mail drop. The conference rooms are in the old vault, complete with the vault doors and safety deposit boxes. Very neat to see it all. The rooms were clean and quiet, even though the hotel is in the heart of the city. The staff was very friendly and helpful, as well. The only drawback is that the valet parking is expensive at $36 per night (not included in the room charge) and is basically required since there is no attached parking structure and finding parking is not easy for those not familiar with the area.

Quick trip, excellent staff

My son and I only stayed one night. We were in town for a medical consultation. We arrived the morning of our 2 pm appointment and although check in was at 3:00 pm they were able to check us in right away. I needed to rent a car to drive to Carlsbad 40 min away and the bellman "Saul" called Hertz and notified me when they were there to pick me up. We ate in the restaurant for lunch, dinner and breakfast. All were delicious and my son especially enjoyed the "White chocolate banana bread". The drink machine on our floor was out of bottled water and I went down to the small guest store to purchase one, letting the attendant know it was out, he comped the bottle of water. A cab was called for our return to the airport and all service was exemplary. The few things I would have changed, were there was only one trash can in the room. All in all I wold definitely return to this hotel.

35th Wedding Anniversary

My husband I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary in San Diego and stayed at the Courtyard Marriott. It was a wonderful hotel with great staff. Every employee we came in contact with had a smile and always willing to help in anyway. We would stay there again if needed.
