I stayed at Residence Inn San Diego Downtown on my third trip to San Diego. The hotel offers a free shuttle for airport runs and to the major sites. All the staff we encountered were super friendly. The hotel is a block off from the harbor and just 10 minutes to the airport. The interior is not the newest but...

Our 2 bedroom suite was a bit cramped (it was hard to get between the bed and the door when it was open and my husband I were both in the room), and the location was noisy especially in the mornings from road traffic and trains. However, we had a great stay and thought the hotel staff were absolutely top...

One night stayed at this convenient hotel to Little Italy and the airport. The hotel is about 1/2 - 1 mile from the center of San Diego. Its beginning to age a bit but is still comfortable and was clean. Downside was the closeness to the train tracks and airport (noise). I had a room facing the pool and the...

Stayed here between late night arrival at the airport and morning car rental to go north. Staff was friendly. I had a room to the side where the train passes. Get a room away from it, it was very loud. Breakfast was what I am used to from other Residence Inns. Shuttle drove me directly to the car rental agency...

I love Marriott hotels and have used them all over the world during my business travels. I'm particularly fond of Residence Inns, for comfort and the convenience of kitchens and the included hot breakfasts. I always try to convince my company to let me stay at a RI. So, when we had a family trip planned for San Diego in...

The rooms are clean, the property is well maintained, and the location is convenient to the 5 freeway and downtown. Do NOT stay here if you are attending an event at the convention center as it is too far to walk at 0600 and the neighborhood isn't what I would call safe after dark. We had friends stay here, who...
