Last minute trip to San Diego, Golf and Padres game. The rooms and bathrooms are well maintained. The one must is to visit Currant Restaurant attached to the Hotel. The beignets are amazing, we had them with the maple bacon pecan sauce, there are 3 other sauces to choose from. Walk to Gaslamp and Petco Park are doable.
"It did the job...."
It was quiet, comfortable and did the job for convention accommodation. Physical plant getting tired around the edges. The surprise "heritage" tax notice on check-in seems like a scam after prepayment of room....not much choice in the matter by then! (Should be built into room fees). Breakfast in currant was sub par (skillet too heavy on frozen prepared potatoes & too light on quality) while service & food at lunch were excellent. 👍
"Prime location , hidden gem in the Gas Lamp Quarter "
Excellent location. Easy walking distance from top restaurants and bars. Small rooms but tastefully decorated. Excellent guest service by all. Ryan the outside valet was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Would definitely stay here again.
"Very tight quarters"
My daughter booked this hotel for my husband and I and our 3 adult children for a business conference. The hotel is a boutique hotel about 12 blocks from the convention center and 3 blocks from the beginning of the Gas Lamp area. This hotel was built in the 1920's and obviously recently renovated. It was decorated cute as most boutique hotels but the rooms were so small that I had to sit on the bed so my husband could walk around the bed. The bathroom consisted of a very small commode and a shower area that was 2' x 4'. The was no shower curtain just a half glass panel to block the water from the floor. There was no place to store your luggage, so that made the walking area even worse. And on top of that there was too much furniture n the room. It was a nightmare for two people. That being said, it was fine for my adult children flying solo. We eventually upgraded to a suite that was twice the size of our first room. That room was much nicer and we even had a bathtub. Although I would probably never stay there again, I have to say the staff was always very helpful and they provided excellent customer service.
My husband and I came to San Diego for a 3 night stay in April 2017. We found the Sophia Hotel on a third party booking site for a steal and decided to give it a try. We were blown away. The rooms are small but are so well appointed that we did not mind. There is plenty of room for two people but would be quite tight for a family. Our room was a corner room with a fantastic view of downtown. We walked to the gaslight district every day and had easy access to many of the local attractions. I walked to the hotel from the Amtrak station which was awesome. The gym is fantastic and even offers free yoga daily! There is also an option to rent bicycles which my husband took advantage of one morning when he was craving a breakfast burrito. This hotel has it all. You will not be disappointed.
