To my dearest:
I’m finally organizing everything from my San Diego Trip and wanted to share with you all one of the hotels I stayed at during my trip there. I’m constantly looking for beautiful hotels to stay at to give you all inspiration for your next trip! So here’s this pretty one and my first stop in San Diego! I booked the Marriott San Diego Mission Valley as I was traveling to San Diego Zoo and this hotel was a mere minutes away! So let me take you on a tour of my favorite parts of the hotel and also share with you little bits and pieces of what I think about it!
The hotel is conveniently located and is mere minutes from San Diego Zoo area, a ton of high end shopping center, food and Gaslamp District. However, there was a parking fee of $27 per night. But that’s the case with most hotels in the area, so I wouldn’t consider that a con.
Upon arrival, the lobby was inviting. The interior design is stunning and definitely my vibes! The staff was accommodating. I did run into some problems with my room availability, but they were able to switch my room the next day.
I decided on the hotel, because I was interested in the balcony view of San Diego. The room itself is clean and sleek, but the design was not much to write home about. I was definitely a little disappointed. However, the amenities and everything was decent. It had a smart TV so I was able to easily log into Netflix before I turned in during the night.
What I really wanted was the balcony and this is the view from it. The view of San Diego isn’t as stunning as New York, but it’s surprisingly calming. I enjoyed just taking some time and reading here. This is the city view, but there are also rooms with the pool side view.
Another big thing about the hotel were their facilities. Relaxing here on a sunny day just seemed like a dream come true! You know, escaping from the winter storms in New York and all!
Their pool was also a dreamy escape.
I love hotels that offer a resort like experience. It’s really an all in one package. Super relaxing, just swinging by my day! I love how photo worthy all the facilities of the hotel was!
Their on site restaurant was also a delight. It’s pretty free during the day, so I easily grabbed a book and sat down with a cup of joe. It’s a great atmosphere to get some work in or just chat and catch up with friends or have a nice lunch.
This hotel just makes the best insta-worthy photo opportunities. So modern and so chic. Their lobby’s interior design is super homely and comfortable. I’m just waiting for check out here! Comfortable for the mere minutes I waited for check out!
I’e done a lot of research in terms on beautiful hotels in San Diego and I’m happy I got to try this one out. Although, the room interior wasn’t anything to write home about, the facilities and lobby interior design more than made up for it! The overall service and cleanliness was on par and the price was reasonable. I would love to stay at this hotel again when visiting San Diego, if only to feast my eyes upon their interior design and to use their facilities again!
