We arrived 2 hours early and were able to check-in just fine. I asked the gal helping me if we could have a top floor room, because we were early, she only had availability on the 3rd floor, which was no problem since we had arrived so early. Our room over looked the side parking lot, but nonetheless, it was...

Thank you so much for your detailed review Rosalyn! It's wonderful to see that you were able to enjoy so many of our great amenities, like the Junior Olympic sized pool. It's always a hit with families and one of the largest hotel pools in the area. You mentioned the avocado toast at our Bistro- that's my favorite new menu...

Our stay at the courtyard Marriott in San Diego was a wonderful experience. The room was nice. The staff were exceptional in taking care of us and making sure we had everything we needed for our stay. Several of the evenings we ate our dinner in the bistro downstairs and enjoyed our meals. The bistro offered a variety of foods...

Our soccer club from Arizona recently stayed and had an exceptional experience. Everyone was happy with the quality of the rooms, the wonderful staff, and great lobby and bar area. If our soccer games find us in San Diego again we will definitely be back.

So, on business trip, I misunderstood which hotel to book. When my coworker dropped me off at the 'usual place' and Nick at the front desk couldn't find my reservation, I realized my spaciness had struck again. I had a reservation 20 minutes away, not at this convenient location. (Caveat: I am very detail-oriented in my work, which is why...
