What We Love

  • Style- and design-focused hotel
  • Even when you take a sip of the in-room Evian or Badoit water and Gancia sparkling wines, Pininfarina is at play — they designed the packaging.
  • In-room dining means more than ordering off a shortened menu; your concierge can serve a four-course wine-paired feast.
  • Bang & Olufsen in-room entertainment gear
  • Ferrari rentals

Not as good as it seems
Reviewed 15 hours ago

The location is awesome and staff is friendly, but it will end up costing you more than you pay to book. There is a $25 nightly fee for accommodations like a "gym" which has two broken stationary bikes and weights, but there is no parking and Valet is $45 or in a garage several blocks away. The room is spacious, but smelled badly and there were several broken parts, like the sliding door to the toilet. I wouldnt stay here again especially since it ended up being about $150/night not the $109 that was advertised, and we never got our free glass of wine we shouldve had upon arrival!

You're going to love the front deks folks-- kind and professional. Bed is a heavenly cloud and shower feels like a rainforest massage. Jazz music turned on when you walk in the room, giving you a nice, "start to relax now" trigger. Location is prime! Decor is chic is your open to boutique hotel styles--somehing different is always fun when its followed up with great service and good price.

Awesome stay!

This hotel is chic, clean, unique and located right in the gaslamp area. They valet parking may seem steep ($45/day) but it is actually a better price than you think. Parking in a parking garage will cost you more.The staff were so friendly and welcoming. The room (I stayed in a suite) was awesome! Spacious, cool decor, large/tall windows, nice shower, free wifi, great bluetooth sound system and a comfortable bed. You get a great room for a good price.

Amazing experience

All the staff here is so friendly. The rooms are large, comfortable, and modern feeling as is the rest of the hotel. Location is amazing, right in the heart of gaslamp district with so many places to eat and hang out.

This was my worst ever experience with a hotel
Reviewed 1 month ago

I've travelled all my life (literally since birth). But no hotel has ever charged me in full for four days for more than the currently listed price ... for never even getting to my room. Read every word of the fine print. This company is extremely shady. They will take the full amount of a reservation even if international conferences are cancelled, etc.
