Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of Bristol Hotel

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person.
"Downtown San Diego Property"
Overall Score3.5/ 5
Hotel Bristol is a boutique property across the street from Horton Plaza in downtown San Diego, within an easy walking distance of everything (20-30 minutes max), like Petco Stadium, The Gaslamp district, Little Italy, The San Diego Marina, and the Amtrak station. The San Diego Airport is a short cab ride, as is the San Diego Zoo and SeaWorld. This property is great for anyone or any group looking to be in the center of everything that San Diego has to offer. There are numerous restaurants for all price ranges, a large selection of nightlife options, numerous places to shop at and overall a spectacular city to explore. The property has a lot to offer its guests from a great little restaurant on property, to a spacious lobby with a piano, impressive view of the city regardless of floor or room, free wi-fi, and spacious rooms. All the rooms come with all the expected amenities, except a microwave. There is no self-parking, so you must Valet for $26 a night.

Overall Score4.0/ 5
I stayed here for a conference at the Convention Center. The room was well maintained and any call we made to the front desk for anything we needed was answered promptly. The breakfast was adequate to get you started and out in the morning. The staff was pleasant and professional.
