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.
Throughout our stay the staff were very friendly and attentive. The hotel is well kept and our room was clean and new. The cleaning staff did an excellent job cleaning our room and replenishing all of the necessaries.
The workout area and pool were also nice and clean. We thouroughly enjoyed our meals at their world class restaurant. The food and service there was outstanding.
The hotel is located just off the I-5 and it is out of the touristy "hotel circle". This is a good thing because you are still within a good driving distance from all of the tourist sites, but you don't have to pay the premium.
I would recommend this hotel to others and I would stay there again.
I hope this helps! Happy travels!
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.
Beautiful Marriott in San Diego (Del Mar)
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).
The hotel is still quite new and beautifully appointed and, yes, as others have mentioned, the beds are an absolute dream. A nice touch is to find the plush terry robes in the closet to slip into for ultimate comfort and relaxation!
The only drawback to this hotel is the parking situation -- it is only by paid garage parking, except for minimal street availability. There are other comparable hotels in this area that do not charge parking fees, so that is the only drawback to this hotel to note.
The hotel is well insulated, which makes for a very quiet room, even though overlooking Interstate 5. I would not hesitate to stay in this hotel when in this area again, as it truly lives up to the quality you would expect from a modern Marriott property.
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.

... a resort, and even had a chef on call 24 hours a day for patients! That, plus complimentary massages and live classical music!
We also took a drive up to 'The Lookout'; an amazing spot high up on the ranch, with views for hundreds of miles - very picturesque!
I had another few horse riding lessons and got to do some archery as well (a favourite of mine, mainly because I don't suck at it). Yesterday afternoon ...

There is an enormous military cemetery that lines both sides of the road. We were not expecting to come up on that and it was quite sobering. We didn't end up staying too long as we were all hungry and headed a little further north on the coast to Ocean Beach to find dinner.

The number 1 thing recently married couples advised us is to make sure you tell everyone that you are on your honeymoon so you can get upgrades and discounts etc. And so when we went to pick up our rental car the nice guy there gave us an upgrade!!It took us 15 minutes to work out what all the buttons and gadgets did in the car and another 10 minutes of us sitting ...
