    Nice Hotel

    Not too bad, it did the job for two nights. Room was mostly clean, it wouldn't hurt to have a bit of a face lift. Breakfast was Ok and very standard for what you normally get. Location was pretty good, 10 minute walk from little Italy and Gas Lamp quarter, Balboa park is walkable but I would recommend driving (free parking in Balboa park) or catch a bus. This is a nice hotel , which is located close to the gaslight district and the harbour. The rooms are big and clean, The hotel has a parking garage on the other side of the block . But you can reach it from the hotel. Breakfast is simple but good .. The staff was very friendly.

    The Best In Downtown

    This hotel is a unique balance of historic and modern. The hotel is located in the Cortez area of downtown San Diego. The area is very quiet away from the Gaslamp madness, but close enough to be there in a few blocks. The hotel has a great Mexican restaurant on 6th Avenue and a little coffee shop across the street on 7th. I ate lunch at the Mexican restaurant and it was very good and crowded as it appeared to be a local favorite. My room was remodeled since my last visit a few years ago. The breakfast had plenty of seating and the food was great including the eggs and pancakes. The fitness center was the nicest I have ever seen at any Holiday Inn Express with plenty of equipment. Every employee was friendly and went out of the way to greet us. The price was fair for a great location, free breakfast and free shuttle. My colleague flew in for the meeting and used the shuttle service. I drove in and parked in the garage. The room and facility were extremely clean and well maintained. I will back again soon. This hotel is a hidden gem!

    Quiet and Clean Place

    The hotel was still under renovation. The room was newly renovated with balcony that view the swimming pool and courtyard. Lighting was perfect with international sockets for any electronic devices. Hotel staff were all friendly that always greet us and helpful with all our needs. Facilities was clean and well maintained. The price was fair in this quiet place with great location, wonderful staff with free breakfast that taste good and free shuttle service. Because the hotel was still under renovation we can hear some hammering and workers around the area. The internet access was very slow. The parking also not free but guarded. Besides those things we had a comfortable stay.
