The staff did a great job accommodating our group and making sure the needs were met. It was a great property that was well kept and clean. I would recommend this hotel for your stay in San Diego! You won't be disappointed.

All of our faculty had nothing but nice things to say about their accommodations and service. There were zero issues with the bookings, the room quality, or service. It was a very efficient process as a coordinator with multiple group bookings.

The one thing I always enjoy about the Courtyard is that it's very consistent. This location is not near any San Diego attractions, but convenient for business travelers. The workout room is a step above the normal Courtyard with weight machines and nice cardio equipment. Everything else is as expected with your normal stay with the. Oourtyard.

This was an awesome stay for me. The front Desk was real helpful. Alex and Steph were great! Good food at the bar area as well. The front Lobby area has a great feel and it was really cozy. If you are looking for a great place to relax this is it.

Spent a nice weekend in San Diego, and this hotel was a good base. The pool especially is nice and we enjoyed swimming. Location was good - close enough to vegan restaurants and the Maritime Museum. The room was spacious, nice and clean. Friendly service.
