Things turned around when the train pulled out of union station and took us along the coast south. The train literally ran along the beach and we were given amazing views of the ocean. Meg and I were excited to get to San Diego so that we could quote 'Anchorman' relentlessly and set each other the challenge of only speaking in quotes from the movie …
... out of the water right in front of me. We then watched the Orcas show with everyone else. We sat right in front in the splash zone. We were lucky we didn't get wet but the people in the seats up a bit and right in front of us got soaked. WOW we were so lucky. Then we had to leave and get back to our hotel and catch a bus to Anaheim Disneyland. The bus trip felt really quick. I fell asleep at the start and dad woke me up when were at the hotel. Best day ...

... to live here haha..
On our final day in San Diego we went for another tour of the city, and from the hillside that we were on, which used to be a military look-out but now is a memorial, we could see down into the navel submarine port and there were 3 subs there at the time. And while we were driving across the main bridge of San Diego I took a picture showing more of the navy port with many many navel points – ...

Historical Traveler Reviews San Diego Marriott Gaslamp Quarter
My Sister, Nephew and I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights ... We had nothing but great experiences. Everyone from the bellhops to the front desk were so accomodating. The location was great for access to the trolleys , Seaport Village and Petco Park. Views from the waterfront room were outstanding. We stayed on the Concierge Level which gave you access to the Club lounge. This was nice as we could have breakfast there daily and if you choose, cocktials and snacks in the evening. There was also a computer with internet access for all to use. I would definately return to this hotel when I go back to San Diego. I hope it is soon!
We had originally booked a room in Laguna Beach, but due to some problems there, we decided to find lodging elsewhere. We were able to get a room at the Gaslamp Marriott on short notice (less than an hour!) and could not have been more thrilled with our choice. We have stayed at the other Marriott location, a couple blocks away next to the convention center, but never at this location. We were welcomed by the staff, from the valet to the front desk, and made to feel at home. They even gave us a special promotion package that included a free movie, free parking, and breakfast for two. What a nice bonus! We had originally planned on staying one night, but extended our stay to two. The room was great, with a view of Petco Park as well as the Coronado bridge and the ocean. The bed was super comfortable, with down bedding. Room service was prompt and friendly, and the food was superb! The location is great, right in the middle of shopping, restaurants, nightclubs, etc. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. We can't wait to go back!
Visited for business trip during April 2005.
Stayed here for a conference and felt I won the contest for best convention hotel. Maps of downtown do this property no justice for its proximity to the convention center, Petco Park, and the Gaslamp restaurants and clubs. The rooms were sparkling (as you would expect from a new hotel) and the bedding was beyond belief. Even though the Omni looks closer to the convention center and baseball park, this is just as close, honest. The service was almost southern or midwestern with their friendly attitudes and helpful nature. The restaurant was above par for other Marriotts, the ground floor bar was excellent and charming. Even though the other Marriott is on the harbor, this boutique is hands down a better property. I cannot wait to go back next year, hopefully it will be during baseball season. The idea of watching the game from their soon to open roof-top bar is very appealing.
Superb in every way
My wife and I stayed here for five nights in mid January. The hotel was more upscale than the typical Marriott and was spanking new.
The bedding was very comfortable and teh decor outstanding. There were floral displays in the lobby that were breathtaking. The staff could not have been more accomodating
We enjoyed the restaurant and ate several meals there. UInlike most hotels this one was nearly a gournet experience. Of the six dessert choices we managed to try five of them and they were all excellent.
The location is quite convenient. Given the choice I would recommend the Gaslamp Marriott over the Horton Plaza Westin.
We drove down from Norco, Ca. for a trade show. When we arrived in the Gas Lamp District, we looked for underground parking for the hotel. Save your time on looking. It's ONLY valet parking, that's it. The folks were friendly and ready to help. The room was clean, beautifully re-decorated & even had a little office. We were on the 9th floor & sometimes during the day you could feel like a rumbling underneathe the floor. I was on my computer from 1pm to 2pm (the second day I was there) and for 15 minutes there was a screeching noise, like a boiler room eeking.... So stay on the highter floors if you can... We had a great time. Seconds from wonderful restaurants and clubs.
Marriott's newest hotel in San Diego is definitely one of it's nicest. With a location right next to Petco Park in the Gaslamp Quarter neighborhood, you really can't go wrong staying here. Marriott labels the hotel a 'boutique', and that's a pretty accurate description - it's smaller & far trendier than the typical larger hotels found in the Marriott chain. Rooms are tastefully appointed with super premium beds & linens, and full marble baths (with Gilchrist & Soames spa products & Starbucks coffee as a nice added touch). The restaurant & bar there, Soleil@K, serves up tasty dishes in an atmosphere that screams 'California Cool' - open flame ovens in the kitchen, and a dining area & bar infused with nice warm wood touches. If you stay at the hotel, I would highly recommend a 'Bay Side' room - the views of San Diego Bay, Coronado Island, the Pacific Ocean, and even Point Loma on clear days, is absolutely stunning! If you're a baseball fan, rooms on the Bay Side of the hotel on the higher levels have views into Petco Park as well. The only negative of this hotel is that it is small, and finding rooms in it during busy times of the year will be very difficult. My seven day stay was just about perfect, and I would recommend staying here to anyone.
Great Choice for a Gaslamp Hotel
Just spent a weekend at this newly remodeled hotel in San Diego's Gaslamp district. The rooms were nicely decorated and in addition to our super comfortable bed, we had a great view of Petco park. We loved the hotel's location just steps away from many trendy restaurants and nightclubs. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and recommended an excellent babysitting service. We had a terrific breakfast (try the smoothies!) in the hotel restaurant.
Wonderful hotel with atmosphere
Stayed for a convention. Marriott recently took over this hotel and are almost finsihed their renovations. Funky lobby with terrific staff, doormen. Rooms are nice and contemporary, many have great views. Terrific location just a block off the busy streets of Gaslamp and 5 minutes to the convention center. Concierge lounge, pool and health club weren;t finished yet but should be in March. Highly recommended, much more personable than the larger hotels and with the expected Marriott touched (great beds!).
Excellent, Newly Remodeled Hotel
Stayed at the Gaslamp Marriott for a trade show in late January, 2005.
It had just opened in late December.
Nice location, next to Petco Field and walking distance to the convention Center. Numerous restaurants within walking distance in the Gaslamp Quarter. All newly remodeled facility. Comfortable bedding with TONS of pillows. Breakfast downstairs in the morning was excellent and not overly pricey. Employees were helpful and friendly. No Pool, fitness center was not yet open.
Would highly reccomend.
