Come here for the trendy decor, upscale rooms, and central location between Gaslamp and Little Italy. The guestrooms were remodeled in 2014, transitioning from a nautical theme to a more sophisticated design with darker colors and luxury bedding. The rooftop bar has well-crafted cocktails and a giant fire pit, but the pool is tiny by San Diego standards. There's a stylish yet relaxed atmosphere at the lobby-level Living Room lounge, where drinks flow and DJs spin. Be sure to ask for an upper-floor room—the scantily clad crowd parties into the night. The on-site restaurant Kelvin serves three meals daily.
