... a while. And he looked cartoonish. But surprisingly they actually weren't that big. Bee was pretty excited about the Takin ( a recent discovery to us both; what looks like a moose x goat x reindeer) from there we made our way up through the raptors to the polar bear exhibit. They were all kinda lazy and not much was happening. The cubs are all grown up now so it's nap time all the time . But we still got a few photos. We strolled on through what seemed to be a never ...
... some canoeing and then met amber hook for lunch. The pizza place we went to was the bomb! Thanks girl. It was good to get caught up on her and jons relationship! Ha! She filled us in on some things that happened to her when she was in Africa. It was really good catching up. She also filled us in on where to go in socal. And pretty much she said it sucked and to go north of La. HA so its not just me. Then we rode up to lake miramar and im ...
... fantastic welcoming. Our guide did arrive, and the dozen of us had a great tour of the old town and new town, visiting an amazing Catholic Cathedral, a hacienda that is now a museum, a craft and food market, flower market, shrimp market, jewelry store, and tequila outlet. Mazatlan is the shrimp capital of Mexico and we saw a lot of shrimp, separated by size. The largest shrimp were about the length of my hand and cost about $2 each. We also stopped to watch the cliff divers. The ...
... Do not mix well. Aaron and I then toddled off to Belmont Park at Mission Beach, it's an old school style arcade board walk. There wasn't must happening there and I think it would be better at night. Grumble bum didn't want to be there so we left early. It was a really long nice looking beach- there is a cement path all the way along, heaps of fit bodies running up and down. We are back in the room now having a rest - still have not had a good sleep ...
A very special day today - Joshua's 3rd birthday! So today we tackled San Diego Zoo. It is a great zoo, but it is hard not to compare it to Taronga. We all had a great day, did heaps of walking, took loads of photos, and managed to see most of the exhibits. After we left the zoo, we headed back to our resort and all went for a swim. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Andaz San Diego
I've just returned from a single night stay at the brand new Ivy Hotel and had a nearly perfect experience. I originally was going to stay Tuesday night but my flight was cancelled due to mechanical problems. I called up the hotel worried that I would be unable to move my reservation. My fears were unfounded: They happily moved the reservation back 24 hours.
I was a bit skeptical after reading the previous reviews upon staying at the Ivy Hotel, but I figured to give it a try. Both me and my girlfriend arrived early on a Saturday evening and were quickly greeted with two people opening the car doors for us and asking if we were checking in and quickly got our bags and asked for our last name. Upon entering the lobby they had a file for us and escorted us to our room. We booked the premium guestroom with the 360 glass shower and it was everything one could expect.
This is a brand new hotel and so I was excited to stay there because everyone seems to always stay at the overbooked Omni which has alot of heavy construction atm with the Hard Rock Hotel. I didnt want to risk that construction noise so i booked at the Ivy bout 5 blocks up.
I went last weekend to check out "Ivy Hotel" as I saw the article in the LA Times and was curious about a "communal shower". While the price of that suite was a little steep for me, I booked what I thought to be just as special of a room. It had a glass enclosed tub and shower. That could be considered communal! The room was beautiful and the tub amazing. I had my own bath butler draw a bath for my boyfriend and I. I dined in the Quarter Kitchen and had the treat of meeting their celebrity Chef Damon Gordon. The food was beyond compare. The flavor and texture of the Kobe beef surpassed what had previously been my favorite Kobe beef experience at Tao in Manhattan. We headed to the roof to their Eden nightclub and found it to be a cornucopia of sights and sounds. We reserved a bed as our table. How cool is that? And the view of San Diego was amazing. Every place we touched at the Ivy was unique and one of a kind. The staff bent over backwards to accommodate our every whim, including fetching black socks at Nordstrom's for my fashion conscious boyfriend. This hotel not only looks gorgeous from staff to the property, but it delivers the unique experience it promotes.
This is a copy of my letter to the owner regarding our experience at their restaurant/clubs last night:
as a frequent traveler and guest of luxury hotels around the world, i gave the ivy a chance--despite many warnings of a vegas like scene from friends and san diego residents. i liked their service and found the staff very helpful (minus the club/lounge staff who think they're working in new york). the decor in the lobby and rooms is well executed, but the rest of the hotel leaves a bad taste in my mouth...scantily cald women and the middle aged men who pursue them does not exactly convey class and luxury to me.
Never on Thurs-Sat unless you don't sleep
This new luxury property was an anniversary getaway for two nights - unfortunately they were Thursday and
Fri nights, when the downtown San Diego Club scene is in action. The techno-music from a club across the street(Martini Ranch) was non-stop until 2 am. The desk clerk on checkout admitted they are aware of the issue(a minor rate concession was given) and not sure what they are going to do about it. The room was luxurious - hotel amenities great, but we would only go back on Sun-Wed nights. The clear glass, wrap around tub/shower without curtains or screens will likely present some issues for some guests.
We stayed here as a last minute decision. We live in San Diego close to downtown and thought this would be a fun get away. As soon as you enter the property you are surrounded by luxury. The hotel lobby is full on interesting organic type features. We were kindly greeted and escorted to our room. The room is on the small size but it makes up for that with all the luxuious features. A personal butler came a few minutes later with a complimentary champagne and the has left a fruit plate with a kind welcome note. We did not have a tradional view from our room but looked out to a light filled corridor that looks right toward other rooms. Cool but you bettter remember to pull the shades when dressing!
Ok...so with every hotel that's been opening up lately comes the night club and the rooftop entertainment....and for San Diego it's a big deal. Everyone wants to checkout the new place in hopes that it'll be better than the last one that opened up and died down after couple months.
