We had a great time at Humphrey's with our family of 5. We would recommend it to families and couples for sure. Next time we will definitely try to get tickets to a show. The front desk staff were super helpful with regards to information about all things San Diego. Which is a fantastic city to visit.
San Diego is one of my favorite cities and I'm always happy when I get a chance to go. Usually stay at a Marriott or Starwood Hotel (W, US Grant) but this time they were way too expensive. So when I got a great price on The Keating Hotel and saw the positive reviews I figured I'd try it. I was very pleased with the room. Different from the hotel chains and had kind of an industrial studio look and feel. It was very large and comfortable with great amenities. You don't see Bang & Olafsen components in many hotel rooms. The bed was really nice and I slept well there. My only complaint with the room is the shower is one of those types with an open half wall of glass - I just prefer one with a door you can close so cool air stays out. Otherwise it was fine. Also the shower and sinks are open to the entire room which is unusual. There is a curtain you can pull in front to separate that area from the rest of the room if you want.
There staff was great - really friendly and professional. Appreciated that they called a cab for me when I checked out! I would be quite happy to stay at The Keating again and hope I will!
We had a great stay at The Dana on Mission Bay. It was very close to Sea World with a shuttle bus provided but also easy walking distance (which we did at the end of the day). We had a room overlooking the marina which was lovely & also nice to spot a seal or two swimming around. The kids (9 & 11) loved the pool and the pool staff were particularly friendly, taking orders for drinks/lunch throughout the day. The waitresses at Firefly Restaurant were very friendly and professional and the food delicious. The breakfast at The Blue Pearl was average & we were asked to wait 10 minutes while a table was cleared for us only to find that there were at least 10 spare tables. The wait on all 3 mornings was too long. All in all we had a very enjoyable time at The Dana & we would stay there.again.
