Great hotel
The hotel was conveniently located downtown near the gaslight district. Parking is only available via valet, but they were really fast in retrieving the car. Service was awesome. The room was clean. The bed, and especially the pillows, were really comfortable.

Best Beds EVER!
I loved the Bristol. It's a really cute hotel and centrally located to the convention center. They had charging for my electric car and the beds were the most comfortable I experienced. I will be staying here next time I am in San Diego!

Fun Rooms !
This was a great bargain close to everything. I stayed at several hotels over the week I visted that cost a bit more and actually preferred this one. The rooms are very clean and well appointed. I would even go so far as to say...FUN! The little details in the room like a jar of hard candy and bright colors just felt bright and cozy. For the most part the Lobby was fine but... something seemed off and did not quite match the fun vibes you get from the rooms and hallway decor. The family games off to the side of the reg. desk. against the windows made it feel like a kids doctors waiting area. Since it's ones first impression when walking in I would suggest revisiting it. I would absolutely book here again !
