Antique furniture, ornate mirrors, and the original 1926 ceiling grace the lobby of this historic hotel (formerly the Park Manor Suites) within walking distance of Balboa Park. A 2012 renovation added a bit of flair to the rooms, with purple and gold accents, stenciling, and historic San Diego images that double as blackout shades. The inn accommodates weekly and monthly visitors, so the rooms' fully stocked kitchens include refrigerators, two-burner stovetops, and cookware.
A lively Friday happy hour at the Top of the Park rooftop bar draws the local LGBT community. The on-site restaurant specializes in prime rib and has a piano bar with live entertainment from Wednesday through Sunday nights.
