I am very loyal to Marriott properties and this one doesn't disappoint. The rooms are clean, modern and very well laid out. Staff is friendly and helpful. The restaurant and bar on property are a bonus. I will definitely come back.

Loved this resort! Great views, awesome rooms, and the staff was lovely! Everything is pretty new... decor is modern! Rooms are very roomy! Great quality for price! Only a short walk to restaurants, bars and shops in Gaslamp. This is our new spot! We come to San Diego on a yearly vacation and we will 100% stay here again!

Amazing hotel. Clean, great value, close to Gaslamp. Highly recommend. Very appreciative of two valet's, Andrew and Cesar. These guys provided amazing service, professionalism and knowledge about San Diego. They are the first faces you see when you arrive and leave. They are amazing ambassadors for Marriot.

The hotel is nice, but it has issues. I came with my family to enjoy San Diego. You can walk to the Gas Lamp and Little Italy but it's a hike. We were guaranteed a room by 4PM but the room wasn't ready and we had small children so it was a major inconvenience. We headed out each day to...

I spent one night here in March 2017. I wanted to stay in the Gaslamp Quarters and so spread my stay between various Marriott properties. I was kind of auditioning the hotels. I ended up staying in 6 Marriott properties in that period!!!. Naughty of me, but it was fun as I didn't mind moving often. I booked only one...

Caveat: I am a Marriott Vacation Club Owner, but this was our first time at this location. We have also stayed at the Pulse location in Boston several times. We stayed recently, a party of 5 with 2 rooms. My husband and I and our son in a king suite, my mother and my daughter in a double bed suite....

This hotel is convenient for walking to the Gaslamp quarter, Little Italy, and Petco Park. By convenient I mean those sights are about a mile away. The staff is friendly and the rooms are very nicely done. The hotel begins on the 12th floor of the building so the views are outstanding. Our 1 bedroom double bed suite was really...

This hotel is still under construction, and when finished would likely deserve four stars. Our troubles began at check in with some room swapping confusion, and continued with fire alarm testing which was to happen from Tuesday to Thursday. The suites are nice, small but well done. There is a microwave, fridge, freezer and sink (no stove top). BUT, and...

We got there and we decided to ask the concierge about the San Diego zoo and the safari park... she seemed super nice and chatty but she started to talk about the hotel opportunities that we will have if we attend a meeting 🙄 she said it's the best thing we can do because we can leave the kids from...

The hotel is in a great location. Easy to walk or uber around. A bit confusing to uber since it's relatively new. The room is nicely renovated. This is a newer concept for Marriott timeshare. Right in town, but smaller room and not a real kitchen. Just a small fridge, microwave, sink, and dishwasher. No stove or kettle. The bed...
