Staying at the urban botique was a fun experience for my fiancé and I. The staff were so nice and helpful to us! The room was small but perfect for our get away weekend! Will definitely come back if we find ourselves in the area
From the first call Anthony was very pleasant over the phone once we got there was a smooth check in with him as well. The hotel was updated and very comfortable...since the weather was unusually HOT...air conditioner was great. The hotel staff was very friendly and accommendatng the 5 days we were there. Jose A. was the valet supervisor and was there on the spot when we needed him and he also remembered who we were and made sure we were taken care of. The hotel was really close to the bay and if we needed a shuttle Alex M was there to take us and pick us up always friendly ....happy to see us and drove us safely each time. Our first day there we asked Robert about the bar and restaurant at the hotel...he let us know where it was located and offer one free drink coupon for each of us and was very friendly. When we got to the Glass Door Bar located at the top of the hotel we meet a charming lady named Jersery and fell in love with her and the beautiful view from atop the hotel...so if you are looking for a convenient place to stay don't miss out on the Porta Vista Hotel...service with a smile!!!!! Porta Vista provides service that huge hotel can't and don't !!!!
The hotel is in walking distance to fantastic eateries, a couple of blocks from the water and very accessible to major highways and the airport. The night life in Little Italy is very much alive. The cafe's and outdoor bars are also very appealing for a weekend getaway. Highly recommend this hotel for the location and accessibility. As far as room and amenities go, it is above average. Clean and well furnished. Rooms are on the smaller side, but when you want to be outside exploring what the city has to offer, who needs a large room anyway? Another negative is parking (street). I didn't have time to explore the fitness center or other amenities during my short stay. If even I need to be in SD again, I would definitely consider this hotel.

Only good thing about the room was it is spacious (apartment space). Checking in was a pain in the butt, had to wait for awhile for a staff to meet with us to show where to park. Our assigned parking spot in the garage was double booked by another tenant, so they took our spot, but I told them to move since I was there first. The bathroom toilet broke, so it flooded the room, my guest had to sleep on the sofa couch, because the carpet smells after it was drying. No apologies, no credit, no nothing.
