In the spirit of full disclosure, we booked a room through Destinations and did not realize that we only got a room with two double beds. We failed to catch it and when we arrived and the room was discussed with us, we attempted to correct and get a king bed. Here is where customer service falls apart.  The attendant at the front...

Marriott Vacation Club Pulse in San Diego was an excellent home away from home! Hotel has been newly renovated, cannot say enough about the rooms - clean, comfortable - loved that I could lay in bed and watch what I wanted on TV, while my husband could be in the suite watching what he wanted on TV. All staff was...

Great property - centrally located to all transportation. restaurants and shopping. Cable car lines are all within walking distance - parking is very expensive though (but comparable for downtown area). Great breakfast buffet at a good value.

Marriott Pulse has a really cool vibe. Excellent location not far from Gaslamp area. Staff great. Rooms and toiletries awesome. Great sleep quality. Food and dining options in hotel. Near the San Diego Tribune Building. Airport 10 mins away. Mission Beach and La Jolla pronounced LA HOYA not far by car. My best recommendation is if you are staying here...

This location was formerly a Sheraton, then later The Declan Hotel. Marriott has taken it over and is converting the rooms into 1- and2-BR suites that are very modern, very comfortable, and beautifully designed. Our 1-BR unit had a comfortable living area, a private BR with a fine king bed, and a spacious bathroom. Everything about the property is being...

We stayed at the San Diego Pulse for 5 nights and although it was under renovation, we had a very peaceful stay. From the moment we arrived the staff was welcoming and pleasant, particularly the bellman Joe who not only explained the suite amenities, but also said hello every time we saw him, asked if we needed assistance and offered...

The hotel is in the process of remodeling, however, it doesn't even seem like it! The staff is super friendly great bar/ lounge area. The bartender, John, is awesome, friendly, great pour, and a great list of seasonal cocktails. A bonus, I ended up getting upgraded with no additional cost and the suites are awesome. Modern design, comfortable bed, spacious...

We just spent three nights at the Pulse. It is located in the upper floors of a building where the San Diego Symphony performs. It is in a part of town that appears to be mostly office buildings and hotels. There aren't many restaurants in walking distance, but the hotel is a very quick, cheap ride ($5-$6) on Uber to...

We could only spend one night there. From the time we arrived, we were given great service. Duncan and Cesar helped us unload and gave us directions to the lobby on the 12th floor.
