I Traveled to San Diego from out of state on a business trip, and had the wonderful pleasure of staying at Catamaran. To be more specific my time at Morays was exceptional. Right away walking in I was greeted by Mr. Alejandro. This gentleman always made sure I was taken care of and I never felt forgotten about. The service industry is always a stressful business, but Mr. Alejandro knocked it out of the park and seemed to be handling it with ease. I will definitely be coming back ! Thank you for a great stay!

Hotel's Favourite
My family came to visit me in San Diego and booked a room at the Catamaran. I was a little skeptical of how the hotel experience might be during this crazy time with the global crisis. To our absolute delight, the Catamaran is operating better than ever, and it’s very apparent how serious they’re taking the Covid-19 protocols. Dave Hopper, the banquet coordinator, took the best care of us and treated my parents like his own. He got us a reservation at the hotel restaurant, made excellent recommendations for fun things to do in town, and assisted my mom who has a hard time walking, in getting an accessible room. We look forward to their next visit and more wonderful interactions with the great staff here.

I called to make a reservation and had the pleasure of speaking with Diante Ashby. Diante was very pleasant and took really good care of me. We haven’t stayed here before and he set us up with a bay view room. I’m looking forward to our stay especially if the rest of the staff is like Diante. Thanks again Diante
