Bristol Hotel centrally located downtown S.D.”

Location to Petco Ball Park; location to nightlife in Gaslamp Dist.; location to fine dining and shops.

Clean room, excellent and friendly service, reasonable price were the primary factors I experienced at The Bristol Hotel. The close location to the Gaslamp District and Petco Ball Park were the initial reasons why I chose The Bristol and it did not disappoint. We were able to walk to the ball park, fine dining, nightlife, shopping, waterfront, etc.

Friendly service, great food, room service was really fast.

The guy who checked us in (mike I think his name was) was so friendly and even though he was busy and trying to get off work he found us a sushi restaurant to go to at 111pm on a Sunday. Ive had the most incredible experiences at the Briatol Hotel; they have hosted 2 banquets for us as well and I look forward to hopefully going back to stay their soon.

Room is OK but noise kept me awake”

I stayed for 5 nights. The first two was on the weekend. Fellow tenants kept talking and I could clearly hear the conversation coming from the next door and from the hallway. Then, for the other three nights, various kinds of humming noise came from ventilation or plumbing or whatever unknown source. I ended up sleeping badly throughout my stay.
