... We looked around for the Orcas and found a dolphin pool. I got to touch a dolphin, we then found some Bat rays(dad said they were like an Eagle ray). They were slimy. We then had lunch with the Orcas , wow. We sat at a table near the water, while the trainers talked to us while they fed the Orcas. I can't remember what the lunch was like but mum & dad said it was yummy. I got so close to the Orcas it felt like I could touch them. ...
... we didn't need. l.A airport has had a huge face lift from the last time I was here, lots of designer shops. Flight back home is long but lots of movies to keep us both entertained, had David order a glass of red ( for me) plus mine so a little night cap helped. We arrive in Sydney and make our way to our connecting, and before you k now it we are back home. Curiosity .... ...
... direction we think is towards food. After walking past the court house, county jail and a number of dodgy people, (Gretchen was pretty sure one bloke had a gun) we thought we were in the wrong end of town so made a quick right and ended up in the Gaslamp district, where food and drink is aplenty. We found an Indian restaurant where the food was amazing! We scoffed that down and found the direct route back to our hotel, through normal non-dodgy streets and crashed for the ...
... I know I have brought up food a lot in the blog, and I shall not stop that now. The sushi here is amazing. Its so good, so gourmet, and cheap. I don’t know how this is possible but it is. We went out for a lunch (twice if I’m honest to the same joint..) and I’m talking 24 pieces of sushi with fresh salmon, crab, avocado, and the rest for 12.50 and this is in a lovely sit-down restaurant. This alone could make ...
... some lounges near the pool and settled in to relax. Around 4, we started getting hungry so we had some special refreshments and a flatbread pizza to hold us over till dinner. Then we got our keys and went down to rooms 248 and 250 and checked them out. We both had big sliding doors that looked out on the shuffleboard court. We could hear water in a pond and suddenly saw a group of ducks, mama and her babies walking around the area. After awhile we all decided ...

Historical Traveler Reviews San Diego Marriott Del Mar
My husband, two-year-old daughter and myself stayed at this newer Marriott for two nights in June 2005. We paid $154 for an upgraded room on the concierge level. Our rate also included parking and a full American breakfast each day in their restaurant.
Great hotel- near I-5
Great hotel and lobby. Very close proximity to I-5 which is great. In viewing distance of the beach. Live in San Diego but stayed her for two night as a little romantic getaway. Staff was wonderful and very helpful.
Would recommend this hotel to everyone from professional to family travelers visiting San Diego. It's worth the short drive out of the city.
We stayed at the Marriott del mar May 13-16th and had a wonderful experience. The hotel was very clean, friendly staff, tons of pillows, towels, ect. nice outdoors pool and hot tub. About 5 minutes from Del Mar Beach, and from route 5, downtown san diego is about 8 minutes (if you drive the average of 80 MPH staying with Traffic) Pasific Beach is also very close about 10 due to traffic lights. Defentely recommend this hotel if you would like a Place that is in the "higher" class rank. Not very far from anything but not walkable. Just about as nice as the Hyatt in La Jolla!
Great Hotel! Wonderful staff and great beds
I loved this hotel. Even though it is was not downtown, it was only a 20 minute drive to everything. The staff was very attentive and friendly. The beds were new and the room was fresh and clean. I was in town to visit UCSD, which was a 10 minute drive away. Breakfast at the hotel was great. I would definately reccomend for a short business trip or weekend gateway.
This is a great place to stay!
We stayed here for a week in August-September 2004. We weren't expecting such a great experience. First, the service in this hotel is just excellent -- a very big surprise. Second, the restaurant in the hotel is an award-winning, highly-acclaimed destination in and of itself. This is not a typical Marriott by any stretch and if you are visiting San Diego, I'd highly recommend it. It is very close to Del Mar and all of its restaurants and shopping. We had a delightful stay and we'll go back.
Wonderful beds and decor!
Comfortable beds, lovely room and lobby decor, and great food. The parking situation is a problem but there isn't much parking in San Diego to begin with. The hotel is far enough away from the city to relax but close enough to still enjoy the activities and sights. I would definitely stay there again but only if I could get it at the same rate.
This hotel is easily accessible to Intertate 5, as well as centrally located to area beaches (Black's, Torrey Pines, and Del Mar) and shopping (La Jolla, Del Mar in particular).
Very Nice, Genteel Establishment
This Del Mar Marriott is a real touch of class! Much, much nicer than the La Jolla version, surprisingly. The lobby is beautiful, the rooms comfortable and well decorated, and the restaurant, Aterra is a classy, beautiful and special experience. The Del Mar Marriott is a winner and brings much character and class to the area.
Nice, but distant
The hotel is fresh since it recently opened. The rooms are "cozy," although that's another way of saying small. I was travelling alone and this had no effect on me, but a couple might want more space. The restaurant is really very good as is the bar. The furnishings and decor are upscale and modern. The only caveat to staying here is that it is not near much and you must drive to everything.
The beds are incredibly confortable!! Down pillows and down comforters.
The room was small but cozy. It's a great place to stay if you are interested in "fine dining" and beautiful sights, but expect to drive a good 10 miles if you want to sit at Chili's or Applebees for a beer.
Stay here if you want quiet elegance. It's not a great place for families with young children.
