... board. It was incredible value for $20 & I highly recommend it. Afterwards we got the coastal train to Old Town which being so close to the Mexican boarder is all things Mexican. Had a look around & picked a highly rated restaurant called Coyotes for dinner. Again we over ordered, but still found room for their famous deep fried ice cream. Had a wicked day in San Diego so decided to stay another night to explore again the next ...
... constructed and also was the highest elevation lighthouse ever constructed in the US at over 400 feet above sea level. After seeing Mr. Cabrillo I did some more food tourism to Slater's 50/50 (Burgers By Design). Their signature dish is a burger with a patty 50%25 pork and 50%25 beef. But they give you a paper and pencil to add and customize 100 type of patties, buns, condiments, toppings and sauces. I went with the 50/50 patty on a bacon pretzel bun ...
... at all the animals. It was awesome. Bigger than any zoo I'd seen before. We made the 45 minute walk back to the hostel and again decided to stay in as we had an early flight tomorrow to Vegas. Woo! I woke up at 7 and got Bradden up at 7.30 and we were in a cab to the airport just after 8. When we got to the airport, we checked in and waited in a huge line to get through. We didn't have to wait at all and were boarding the plane straight away. Only an hour flight to ...
... get on with it. The start is tomorrow (Monday) morning at 0900. It is supposed to be quite the spectacle. The mayor will be there as well as high ranking officials from Mexico. It will even be covered live on TV! The starting gun they will use is the official America's Cup starting gun. Pretty cool eh?

After meeting with Phillip Creed, he welcomed me in and as it was Saturday night, he wanted to go out for some dinner and then out on the town. He said he really needed a shower as he hadn't had one since the morning and he felt gross. I countered with sleeping out two nights, and not having one for three days. Haha. He immediately showed me the shower and offered me first use. After showering we got ready and one of Phillip's friends came over too. Morgan was Phillip's 'boss' ...

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.
