LAPTOP STOLEN FROM HOTEL ROOM!!!!

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 3, 2011

Our stay at this Embassy was less then favorable!!! On the last night of our stay we went out to dinner and left our laptop out in the hotel room. We were out for only a few hours, and upon our return, we're shocked to find that the laptop and charger were both missing from the room. We conducted an extensive search through the room with no success. The laptop was GONE!!! We proceeded by calling the front desk, to make them aware of what had happened and to have security check out who might have been able to come in during the time we were absent. According to the reading of the key entry, NO TRACE of entry was detected between the hours we were out! (Inside job?!) We asked if there might be cameras to see who could have come in during those hours, but SURPRISE only lobby cameras in this hotel! Both management and security were not even the least concerned with our problem, and acted as if we were lying about the entire thing. No apologies nor compensation was offered. We were told that the hotel's insurance would contact us, and that there was nothing they could do more for us. This was exactly one week ago! Today in the mail, we received a letter stating that the hotel was not responsible for this theft! DO NOT EVER LEAVE ANYTHING VALUABLE IN YOUR HOTEL ROOM! TAKE IT WITH YOU! IT WILL BE STOLEN AT EMBASSY SUITES AND THEY WILL NOT CARE!!

Thieves on Board

This is a beautiful facility located conviently downtown. The complimentary breakfast and happy hour were a big plus. I had one major problem. Somone gained access to my valet parked vehicle and stole my $!,000 computer. The parking operators and the hotel have failed to make any restitution or even partial compensation. I am convinced one of the valet parking attendents took my computer from the vehicle. So be warned, do not leave anything of value in your vehicle.

Wonderful Location!

This hotel is located in a fabulous spot. It is in the Gaslamp District, close to all the wonderful restaurants and night-clubs, and is right across the street from San Diego Bay. Some of the rooms are city-view, however you can request a bay-view, which we were lucky enough to receive. The view across to Coronado was fantastic! It is also across from Seaport Village, and very close to USS Midway Aircraft carrier, and several other ships.

The 2 room suites are a nice touch, with a TV in both the sitting and bedrooms. We also found the microwave and small fridge handy, as after being out all day, we were too pooped to go out for dinner a couple of evenings. We ended up walking to nearby Ralph's grocery and picking up some ready-made soup, and a fresh baguette and ate dinner in front of the TV. All the comforts of home, but somebody else to clean up and make the bed for you!!

Unique Quality: I would have to say the view is one of the best features! It was so nice to come back to our room and just watch the boats going up and down the bay. The made to order breakfast, and evening cocktail party, both complementary, were also a nice touch. Both were offered in the lobby, in the central courtyard, which is very pretty with fountains complete with koi, and turtles.

We intended to use the indoor pool one evening, but ended up in the outdoor hot tub instead. We didn't use the exercise room.

Directions: At the corner of Harbour Drive and Pacific Highway, across from Seaport Village.

One of the nicer ones

Another business trip (what else!) This Embassy was in great condition, clean, up to date, etc. The location is prime, Seaport village is one block away, Horton Plaza is about a 10 minute walk, and the Convention Center is about the same.

Unique Quality: It has an indoor/outdoor pool, but don't expect to catch any rays. It is a covered area.

Directions: From the airport, follow Harbor Drive around the bay. It's just minutes away.

Near the Gaslamp and Harbor

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

I haven't stayed at this hotel either, but I did see the building of it. It was the restaurant that interested me most as my favorite way of checking out a local hotel is to dine at it's restaurants and wander around the public areas.

This is one of the better hotels in the area and not what would be considered "budget." However, it is conveniently located near Seaport Village, the SD Harbor and the Convention Center. The Gaslamp Quarter is just a few blocks east and within walking distance of most things in the downtown area.

Unique Quality: It seems to me that one of it's unique qualities is the location. It is a block from the SD Bay and should offer great views of the city and the Bay if you request a room on the Bay side.

They offer free full breakfast in the morning from the PFC Bar & Grill, which is open to the public for lunch/dinner. Also free drinks are offered to guests in the evening, from their full service bar. If on a business trip they supply almost everything that might be needed to complete business transactions. If it is a family vacation, there are plenty of extras for families with kids too, including a babysitting service.

The photos I show here were taken from the Island of Coronado at the park just below the Bay Bridge. The clump of trees at the foot of the hotel are part of Seaport Village.
