This Marriott Residence Inn is in an idea location for catching the train, visiting Coronado, experiencing the Gaslamp at night, and staying in San Diego. We love the free breakfasts at this, and all Residence Inns. Parking is pricey but it is in all hotels in the area. As elite members, we got our room early and checked out late....

It's a comfortable and clean hotel that is ideally localized. It's walking distance to many restaurants,night clubs and the train trolley. However, there is no nice restaurant in the hotel and if you're looking for coffee or a nice hot chocolate during the cold weather, you'll have to go somewhere else or use the coffee or cocoa in the room....

ivandS7360OP - Thank you for the feedback regarding your most recent stay. Our hotel does offer a Lobby Bar/Restaurant Bar Vie for dinner service nightly, but we do find that the majority of the guest enjoy visiting the many amazing restaurants located in the Gaslamp Quarter.

Enjoyed the two week vacation here with family. It's close to good eating and attractions. It's seems that companies and FEMA have contract with the hotel since I met many guest that have been living there for over 2 months. Bartender is nice downstairs. Buffett is standard.

This is really a great hotel and I would stay here again. The location is surrounded by tons of bars, restaurants and shops.

Very nice staff, rooms are well equipped for a moderate stay with a full size refrigerator, cook top, microwave and even a small dishwasher! We were here 5 days and were more interested in seeing what the Gaslamp had to offer with restaurants and bars so didn't use our kitchen much. The only disturbing thing to me was the vanity...

Perfect place to stay to be close to the night life. Love that the rooms have a mini kitchen if you plan on a longer stay. Did not like that the parking was valet only for $40/day so I used street parking which is free until 10am. Also didn't like the fact that the headboards looked like a cat scratched...

This hotel was business-person friendly and family friendly. It is extremely close to convention center (business) and to the trolley (pleasure). The staff was very helpful when I needed papers scanned for work. The car parking was very convenient, but PRICEY ($40/night, the only down side). The decor and staff are very inviting. The kitchenettes in the rooms are well...
