The hotel was fine but too noisy on saturday night

Noise from a night club nearby can be quite an issue in some rooms. The hotel location is very convenient for the Convention Centre which is within 10 minutes leisurely walk. . The Hotel previously known as James Hotel has the quaintest lift and central heating in San Diego. Both work well- albeit the lift is slow to kick off

Great Price and Location. The hotel was well kept and the staff was great. The old elevator was fun for the first time. Valet parking was a problem. It took an hour one morning to get my car. Overall a great place to stay in the Gaslamp if you like "old Hotel" charm. My only suggestion is to be prepared to add time for the elevator/valet if you are in a hurry.
