Reviewed 6 days ago

I can’t say enough good things about this hotel! The location was perfect and easy walking distance from Gaslamp AND Little Italy. The room was clean and the employees were a huge reason why I will be back!! Clean rooms! We definitely be staying here when I return to San Diego! Can’t wait!

Just off a cruise, my wife and I wanted a location close to the Gaslamp area and this hotel location met that criteria. We would stay in this hotel again should my wife & I have the opportunity to visit San Diego in the future

Every staff member was friendly
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I recently needed to book a hotel at the last minute, to join a business meeting in San Diego. I called 4 hotels and only The Bristol staff sounded like they really valued their customers. Sienika was friendly and welcoming on the phone, and handled my reservation smoothly and professionally. She was equally friendly and helpful when I checked in, recommending restaurants and helping me get to my meeting. Jasmine was great when a colleague and I met to work in the lounge area. And Ishmael handled several special requests smoothly at the front desk, and was glad to know members of his team had made a difference to my stay. Thank you all!

Comforting and cozy Hotel
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I was quiet impressed by the overall facilities of the Bristol Hotel. The amenities were very nice and cozy. I also received a welcome call shortly after I got into the room to ensure I was pleased. The bed was amazing and quite comfortable. Close to everything - food, shopping... wonderful!

Great location
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The bed was super comfortable and I enjoyed the large shower with a glass door. The shampoo and conditioner made my hair amazing! The walk to the bay was fairly short and certainly do-able. The one negative was the construction next door. They worked late and started early. There is no outdoor space or a pool but the location was awesome! The breakfast had cold boiled eggs, cereals (including oatmeal), breads with juice, coffee and tea served on real dinnerware but with paper options if you wanted to eat in your room. The area restaurants are amazing!
