Pier South Boutique Hotel
Originally this was the Seacoast Inn. It closed something like 13 years ago and the idea was to rebuild it bigger and better. Seems too many road-blocks caused this plan to fail. Everything has been approved! Construction has begun and I believe the name, Seacoast Inn will remain since that's what it says on the construction site.
Well, as it is finally settled, Seacoast Inn is out and Pier South is in! The hotel was completed and opened the winter of 2013. Pier South is a Marriott "Autograph Collection Boutique Hotel" and I expect that the prices will be soaring. However, it seems that the locals who have accumulated Marriot Rewards--or what ever they are called--have been using them to enjoy a "Stay-cation" these past weeks that have bee so warm during the Spring.
Unique Quality: I won't actually stay at this hotel but I will interview the employees and take a look at the rooms and get back to you with my perspective.
The website listed below states that this will be an All-Suite Boutique Hotel with restaurant and spa. No mention of a parking structure.
The Sea 180 Coastal Tavern opened a few weeks earlier then that hotel. I went to check it out and saw a bit of the Hotel style as well. The Dames Day Spa will be opened to the public as well as guests and they do have an underground parking structure so it seems Pier South has considered everything to make a stay here convenient, comfortable and luxurious. The food and service at the restaurant is very good too.
The hotel is a two winged, luxury boutique hotel by Marriott, (Autograph Collection.) Every room faces the ocean and except for the Hotel Del Coronado, it is the only Hotel in San Diego County that is actually on the sand. It seems that this will be priced at the high-end so we'll see how it fares.
The Sea 180 Coastal Tavern, bar and restaurant located in the Hotel is open now. Dames Day Spa
There is a bus stop near which will take you to the trolley and from there you can go almost everywhere in San Diego, that is if you don't have the use of a car.
