Delightful place! Very clean, charming and the location is so great that you will never have to move your car! Adorable European-like patio gardens. Welcoming and accommodating staff. Everything is just plain pleasant and inviting!

It was our first visit to San Diego and we had a wonderful time there. The staff was very helpful. The breakfast granola and croissants were too good! The room we stayed in had a kitchenette which was perfect. Our room did not face any road so there was less noise. The room and bathroom was well maintained and clean....

Charming place with an inviting personality. Every room and hallway is different and unique. It felt more like a bed and breakfast experience than that of a hotel! We were originally given one room upstairs with a shower only and then asked if there was one available with a bathtub. The host switched us immediately without hesitation. We were initially...

We had a lovely experience at Hotel Vyvant. The staff was friendly, helpful and courteous. The lobby was inviting and the hallways wide and nicely decorated. Our room was charming and very clean. The patios were nicely furnished and had an artistic feel. The European styled breakfast had a local coffee roaster for coffee, a bakery from little Italy and...

Very accommodating staff and facility. While our anniversary celebration was slightly delayed, a bottle of Champagne was in the mini fridge which we enjoyed after the Friday evening sampler of snacks, local brews and wines. Breakfast is classy and simple; excellent granola and pastries. Breakfast is reminiscent of European hotels but more limited. The location is great for not requiring...

We have stayed at Hotel Vyvant now four times. We stayed in the suite and it was perfect for our family (son 10 & daughter 17) we had a room to ourselves and the kids had their own beds in a shared room. Clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. We like the proximity to the freeway if we need to travel...

Excellent pastries and coffee in the morning, great location and staff went out of their way to help us out when we had an issue with our flight. We had the king room with the spa tub which did pick up a bit of road noise but a white noise app basically blocked out most of that. We will look...

This hotel is extremely cute and the staff is so friendly. When we first stepped in we were offered a variety of drinks for happy hour that are from local distributors. Our room was absolutely adorable and the location of the hotel was perfect for Little Italy. However, there were two downsides. One being that there is limited parking, so...

One of the best things about Hotel Vyvant, besides the terrific location, is the friendly, happy, helpful staff. The rooms are bright and clean; hallways and lobby spacious and attractive; outdoor gardens cheerful and welcoming; daily breakfast plentiful and delicious; coffee agreeably strong. The staff, however, are exceptional--every phone call, every visit, every time. I am a repeat customer to...
