Courtyard San Diego Downtown Review
The Courtyard by Marriott San Diego Downtown is located at the northern edge of downtown San Diego. It's a solid 10-15 minutes walk to the best spots in the area. The historic hotel is in a building from 1928andlooks like downtown Philadelphia or some of the older office buildings in downtown San Francisco.
The hotel hall's very much like my dentist office or you could expect a private investigator to be found behind smoked glass here. The lobby has been recently renovated and looks fantastic - old charm and new amenities beautifully combined.
After a quick and friendly check-in, we walked up to our room and weren't really sure what to expect. To our surprise, the room was beautiful - lots of bright colors and so many colorful pillows.
I did not like the softness of the mattress, though - it was just way too soft.
The room had a lot of daylight and a well-working AC. The internet was easy to connect to and (as with many Marriott properties) perfectly tuned to 8 Mbit.
The bathroom was clearly not my favorite, however; the door would barely close, the shower had no pressure and while everything looked new, it was clumsy and a long way off the high quality of the rest of the hotel.
Valet parking is offered here at $45 per night.
This Courtyard usually has rates of around $150 - $250 during high season. It's a Category 7 hotel! I got a rate under $100 and for this price I can overlook the faults; if I'd redeemed points or paid $250 I would not be happy to overlook them, though.
