This is an interesting place to visit and a nice property. Lunch in the restaurant was excellent, and we spent the night here with a group of people. Our room, #3, had a very creaky double bed when my husband rolled over, I would wake up. The bathroom was updated with a nice shower, but they only provided two, small,...

Last month visited family and toured Old Town area of San Diego. Stayed at the Cosmopolitan a 11 room bed and breakfast. Truly great service and bar. We were arriving late and the manager, Robin stayed late for us to open the gate. She showed us a wonderful old style room with a pine wood tub (beautiful). My wife asked...

There was wifi in the room. I started reading the book that other quests had written about their stay in the room. One guest even set...

great experience, beautiful & comfortable room with basics & simplicity. Friendly staff & welcoming. Arrived very late on a pouring rain evening but enjoyed our stay. Our only suggestion is to offer some "protein" for breakfast: excessive carbs only. thank you!

We enjoyed two nights at this charming hotel, built in 1829 and furnished in late 19th century style with 21st century comforts like pillow topped mattresses and heating!(it was unseasonably cold during our stay). The highlight was the pine tub (which we paid a bit more for but worth it). Very comfortable and, of course, not something you find at...

I stumbled upon this hotel while web browsing. Lucky for us they had room for us so I booked right away. Pulling onto the Hotel grounds we were pleasantly surprised with our surroundings. We approached the young lady standing at a podium near the restaurant/ bar area. She was very friendly and welcoming. A sign next to her welcomed the...

Grade - C: I had a great time in San Diego and stayed at The Cosmopolitan Hotel because I was looking for a unique experience. The Cosmopolitan delivered a unique and enjoyable stay. Be aware the hotel tries to stay true to it's 1800’s roots. That being said there are no TV’s, Phone’s, Wet Bar’s, Ice, or Refrigerators in any...

What drew us to the Cosmopolitan is its location in the heart of Old Town San Diego. What keeps us coming back is the friendly staff and lovely, old fashioned rooms. We still appreciate how centrally located it is--park once and amble around the area to our hearts content. We usually get the dinner package that gets us a coupon...
