    This Gothic Revival building was designed by master architect Wilber Peugh and many original elements such as the crenellated roofline and terra cotta and plaster embellishments remain intact today.

    The out-of-room amenities include first come-first serve bikes, a yoga studio, and a signature dining experience at Currant. After a good workout, I suggest a spa package like the Sweet Surrender. Read more

    Great, clean, quaint hotel. Super min-gym, so bring your sneakers. No pool which is a bummer, but there is a restaurant with a bar attached.

    A gem of a boutique hotel that is really big on yoga and has a highly lauded on-site restaurant. Don't miss the informative, free "Rise and Shine" tours of downtown San Diego.

    Staying here w gf, small rooms, small bathroom, squeaky bed. This place is best for those traveling alone (or w/ a pet). Bathrooms have sliding door, offers very little privacy. 1st of 4

    Be sure to eat at Currant! Their happy hour is amazing, and it's a wonderful little bar and restaurant to dine at while you're there!

    Make sure to take advantage of the hotel's complimentary bike rentals. Only a few blocks away from the harbor and the rise is gorgeous!

    Pros- nice room, free wifi, free bottled water, good location. Cons- weird bathroom. There is a sliding glass frosted door and no shower door.

    This hotel is ideally located near the famous Gaslamp Wuarter and attractions like SeaWorld, San Diego Zoo, and the Old Town.

    Not only is the Sofia filled with history; it's restaurant Currant, offers subperb meals and note-worthy cheese platters.

    Nice hotel within walking distance to most place. Not in the heart of Gas lamp but close enough.

    Historic charm starts right away with the 90-year-old hotel's well-maintained brick facade and lobby fireplace.

    Far from a boutique hotel, some one needs to clarify to them that concept ASAP. It's an OK Hotel,location is convenient but other than that there's nothing remarkable about the facilities or service

    The bed was horrible (very hard). When we told them they informed us all their beds were the same and the only thing they could do was throw a comforter under the fitted sheet. That did not help!

    Staff is mute and appears annoyed to have to check in guests, valet bangs up the car, no shower door, you enter the room through the bathroom, TV has lousy signal. Other than that great place.

    Watch the valets - they blew out my stereo speakers & scratched my car! Front staff are also zombies who don't greet customers when they arrive?!?! It's a weird place!

    Paid extra for a "city view" room today. First room they gave us had a mid-floor view of a brick wall. They were nice about moving us... to a higher view of a different brick wall. VERY disappointed.

    Don't stay here. Valets scratched my NEW car, and the company the hotel contracts with won't fix it because the valet said he didn't do it. Seriously?
