Sheraton Suites San Diego
Travel Blogs from San Diego
We spent the morning getting settled in our room and doing laundry. Clark went to the store for some groceries and commented that he quickly remembered why he fell in love with this city. It is simply relaxing driving around the neat areas and seeing beautiful scenery everywhere. After finishing the laundry we headed to La Jolla. We started up Mt. …
The day began with some frolicking on the beach in the marina in front of the Jamaica Bay Inn. It was a bit cold so we headed out to Venice Beach in search of breakfast. Yelp directed us to the sidewalk Cafe which was quite good. A sidewalk entertainer played his piano and all the "Cooky" fruits and nuts of California ventured by! After breakfast …
Los Angeles to San Diego today. Well that was a slightly better wake up time 6am, lets hope that is the sign of things to come and the time difference is being made up for. This morning is free time for us to do what we please with, we plan on making the most of the sun this morning by using the pool at the hotel, again it's in the 90's and clear …
We had one day back in San Diego before our flight home, so we decided to head back to the Maritime Museum and take their harbor cruise. When you combo it with your museum admission, the 45 minute tour of the bay is only $4/person. We boarded the 1914, 52 foot "Pilot" for our cruise, and got an in depth history lesson about San Diego Bay. We got …
... the Americans would be the friendliest persons I have met in all my travels. I am at a loss to say why this is because it is not only those in the tourist industry; its been everyone we seem to have met whether having a meal, snorkeling or when we have been out walking.
On arriving at San Diego, we got a taxi to our Hotel and find that it is just across the road from a Casino so I guess we may pay a visit to see how they work ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
This hotel was not as expected. It also is not family friendly. I could go on with the issues for a long time but will leave it at - dont stay more than a day or two and dont bring your kids!
We are simply making the best of it at this point.

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Suites San Diego
The hotel is pretty good overall. I was given an upgraded room because I am an SPG Gold Member. My room was on the 26th floor, the Club floor. The room was nice. The bathroom seemed a little plain though. Something I would expect at a two star hotel. The toilitries were very cheap.
We had 3 people with 2 double beds and the sleeper sofa. The room was small, but clean and quiet. The double beds had lots of fluffy pillows and a fluffy comforter. Bathroom small but adequate.
Stayed at the San Diego Sheraton Suites for 4 nights in July 2004 and enjoyed it very much.
Gave it a second chance!!! You decide
I have stayed here twice and both times something has gone wrong. The first stay the cleaning job wasnt up to par, but thats ok stuff happens. Although the second stay where the refridgerator leaked water on the floor, the Heater/AC didnt work and not to meantion that I had to wait a long while for room service to deliver made me decide that it was time to switch hotels
We purchased our 3 rooms through Hot Wire.Upon arrival and checking out our rooms we were shocked.The carpet was filthy,the wall paper was hanging,the drapes were falling off the rods,the view was of storage shacks.I called and asked if we could be moved and they just said no.They were very unconcered that we were displeased.These reservations were made months in advance,so it wasn't as if it was last minute with very little available.Also their self parking ($16.00 a day) does not have enough spaces to accommadate all cars so sometimes you don't get
Very pleased with my stay here. the first room I was given had a problem, once I notified the desk and asked for another room, they upgraded me to a better room and offered a free in room movie.The second room I got was very spacious, had a micro and a fridge and a/c with in room control.
We stayed here in June 04. Hotel is nicely located for those traveling to the Zoo or SeaWorld. Also easy access to get back to the Airport. Valet staff first indicated our room wasn't ready, but upon presenting ourselves on the 12th floor, we were able to checkin. Room is clean, bed is comfortable and the kids liked the 22nd floor view. Asked for a crib, and the staff brought it up fairly quickly, and seemed astonished when I presented a tip. Then, the staff called to ensure the crib was delivered. So pretty good service, along with a pretty good room. However, on the 2nd night there, noticed that there was a loud gathering a few rooms down. Then, about 9:00 PM, someone entered our room, and they weren't hotel staff. The person realized they were at the wrong room, and quickly left. I bolted after them, but couldn't figure out which hotel room they went to. Sure this is partially my fault for not putting the hook on the door, and using the dead bolt, but why did that person have the same access to my room as I did. That surely meant I had access to their room as well. What is scary is that my 5 year old daughter would have been sleeping in the area on the pullout couch, and she could have been abducted or raped. Lucky she was in my area of the room behind the French Doors. The Sheraton has lost my business forever.
My family stayed at Sheraton Suites for a conference this spring. We were greeted warmly from the time we arrived streetside to the check-in lobby on the 12th floor. We were upgraded to the club level room because I was a Starwood Preferred Guest member. The room was spacious and our 2 year old daughter loved the king bed. So did we! The sofa is a pull-out double which served us well. The concierge service is efficient, courteous, and personable. Breakfast at the Rendition restaurant was excellent whether you chose the buffet or cooked-to-order. The serving staff made it a point to interact with our daughter and took note of her needs. Their heated swimming pool was just the right size for our needs and our daughter made sure we used the pool daily. The area was never crowded so I got to enjoy the jacuzzi when time allowed. Check out the good Mexican eateries within walking distance of the hotel. I highly recommend this hotel to families who want a more private, quiet, and relaxing hotel environment with a hospitable and efficient staff. Do review your bill before checkout because inaccuracies can appear which the front desk staff corrects quickly and apologetically. As my wife declared on our way home, "That hotel was a great find!"
I regularly stay here on business. I like it because the rooms are spacious and comfortable, the place is QUIET and there are never any suprises. This hotel never seems to be very busy during the week and I like that. The rates are generally low compared to similiar properties with smaller rooms. The furnishings in the lobby, hallways and rooms are a bit outdated, but in an old-fashined, comforting kind of way. The beds themselves though are modern and superior; very comfortable.
Stayed at this all suites hotel in Dec 01 when the hotel was under Marriott flag as well as in Dec 02 when it became Sheraton Suites San Diego. We enjoyed both stays. Our suites had a spacious living room, nice king bedroom, wet bar and microwave, and a large bathroom with separate bath tub and shower. A minor problem I noticed at this as well as several other Sheraton hotels is a lack of space to hold your shampoo in a shower stall. There is a small soap dish, but it is not big enough to hold anything else. It must have been designed by a man who hates washing hairs! I always end up putting my shampoo and conditioner bottles on the floor... Also, getting in and out of the parking lot can be an experience if you self-park. The hotel sits atop an orchestra hall and you have to drive a narrow spiral up and down for parking. Other than that, we had pleasant stays, taking advantage of the great December room rates. The restaurant tends to be expensive for dinner, but the food and services were good. They also have an attractive lounge/bar area off the restaurant and lobby. We love the fact the whole public area was smoke-free. The hotel was conveniently close to shops and restaurants, and a trolley stop.
