Fodor's Review

A modern high-rise near Horton Plaza hides San Diego's most opulent old-world-style hotel, featuring a lobby outfitted with bronze sculptures and Baccarat chandeliers. Staff greet guests with old-fashioned charm and politeness; other downtown hotels have flashier amenities but you won't find one with greater class. Rooms are individually furnished with Italian marble counters and rich wool carpeting. From the ninth floor up, the views of the harbor and city are breathtaking,

though newer buildings have obscured some of them. Afternoon tea, with or without champagne, is served in the lobby to the accompaniment of harp music. The San Diego Trolley stops right outside the door.
