arriving at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina, having gone 3,447
miles door to door. We fell into bed. Poor David was up early and out for a 7:00 am meeting and then an all day Board Meeting. He was quiet as a mouse and I never heard him leave the room. I awoke around 10:00 am. The view …
It's been a while since I got back, but I haven't had time to post this.
I spent a few days in beautiful San Diego at the end of May/early June, and it was a much-needed break.
My friend was running her first ever Half Marathon (http://runrocknroll.competitor.com/san -diego) and I decided to tag along for moral support.

A lovely property, but far away from everything, and around a noisy harbour

Historical Traveler Reviews The Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina
Paradise Found at the West Tower
Just returned from a four day stay here. The West Tower rooms were large and well decorated. We had a fantastic view of the Bay and Coronado and the city skyline. The staff was courteous and helpful.
Alfiere is delicious. Breakfast buffet is outstanding. Although the West tower pool is smaller the East Tower's pools, it was also quieter and more than adequate. Overall, a truly beautiful property. I would recommend it to anyone.
Good Afternoon, my name is Candace and my friend and I am writing out of courtesy to such a beautiful hotel. After attending a seminar at the "East Tower" and paying a total of $12.00 "validated" parking fee ($6.00 for morning, left for lunch, paid another $6.00 for evening), we then stayed the evening at the "West Tower" and had to pay an additional $14.00 parking fee after paying approx. $200.00 as a guest for the evening. On my initial visit to check the hotel out (approx.
We had to stay 9 nights in this hotel with 3 kids. It is definately not family friendly. My husband was a main speaker at a conference there and we were given a room in the opposite tower from the conference. The room was VERY small with two double beds. It took 3 hours and 4 calls to request a rollaway. With the time difference, we ended up in bed the first night just before 1am. We had a huge balcony from which we enjoyed the view standing up as the patio furniture was filthy and torn - some chairs didn't even have cushions so were unusable. The tables were disgusting and I kicked the cigarette butts off the deck so my three year old wouldn't pick them up. The bird poop was everywhere. The room looked well worn and the carpet had stains. The TV had 1/2 the channels with snow and the problem was never solved even after a new TV was installed - the movies didn't work and on our last night we tried again - took over an hour to get a movie going and it started half way through. We requested it to start again and it still didn't begin at the beginning. After telling us that we would be compensated for the movie fiasco - we only watched one - our bill had 3 movies on it. When I asked to speak to the manager, he tried his best to convince the front desk clerk to take care of whatever it was. Once I finally got him on the phone, he just grunted and with no apologies. When I said, I'm thinking you just don't care about any of this today do you?" He hung up. Yikes! I hadn't even raised my voice! The valet guys were very nice when they could be found. Waiting around with 3 kids in a busy area isn't safe. Alfiere's Restaurant is supposed to be some great place to eat - forget it... drive to Lotsa Pasta on Garnet Street for A+ pasta and also save a bundle. Choose a different hotel. This was called the Penthouse room and being big travellers, it sure didn't come close. We would have moved hotels if it wasn't for the conference.
My mother and I stayed at the Sheraton on Harbor Island in May 2003
My room was in the Lanai section of the east tower; I felt like I was in Hawaii. The hallways are light and airy which helps you relax before you ever get there. My room backed to the main swimming pool and there were flowers just outside my room. Most of the time my room was very quiet; the only exception was the screaming kids one night in the adjoining room. The bed was comfortable and the pillows were great.The staff was friendly and helpful, especially the guy in the fitness center who knew by the second day that I was coming in for a towel for the pool. The restaurant was not cheap but the food was great and again good service. The staff support for my meetings were excellent; they even retrieved my water bottle which they had taken by mistake over lunch because they thought it was trash.
Loved The Sheraton - Great Beds!
The Sheraton was great. The staff was friendly and most helpful. The breakfast buffet is a bit pricey (Appx. $17/pp w/tax), but worth every penny. Great variety, especially on the fruit bar. Their restaurants are expensive - I suggest you go out for lunch and dinner if you are on a budget. There are great restaurants within walking distance. The view is magnificant from all rooms. The rooms are big, clean and guest service is great. All the staff was very friendly, helpful and always with a smile. The business center is great. The beds are 'heavenly' - all feather. I would definately stay here again.
I stayed at the hotel April 20-22. I was informed that the rooms in the west tower (where I stayed) were much larger than those in the east tower. The room was clean and well-furnished. I had a great view of the bay and the city (ask for floors 7 and above). The work-out facility located a five-minute walk away in the east tower, was clean, roomy, and well-equipped.I would definitely stay in the hotel again.
Tripadvisor user reviews prepared me for the worst, especially since I had booked a discounted rate. My first impressions were terrific. The lobby was beautiful. Even though I was checking in way before 3pm, the friendly anf helpful desk clerk gave me a room to use until they could get me a nonsmoking room when it became available.
I just stayed here with my mother and 1-year-old daughter over Labor Day weekend....Luckily it was only one night.
We just returned from a weekend here in San Diego staying here over the Labor Day holiday and I have to tell you I am terribly disappointed in the service we received. I am learning that if you decide to book your rooms, etc. through Expedia, Travelocity, Priceline or the like you are now entitled to be treated like a 2nd class citizen. Even though I am a long time Starwood "preferred guest" member, because I purchased through Expedia, I was told I was not entitled to the "perks" one receives as a member when we checked in. Heck, the money is still being paid to the hotel no?
