July 12, 2012, Marianne R (Healdsburg, California, United States) I was going for a short trip to San Diego and wasn't going to have a car so I wanted to be in the Gaslamp or nearby. I looked at multiple hotels in the area and as expected, they were all expensive ($250 or more). I happen to come across the Bristol and at $140 a night, I thought I'd give it a try for a 2-night stay. Well, I loved the place! It's a boutique hotel and has a lot of nice touches. The room was beautifully decorated and I loved the colors. I especially loved that the bathroom had towel racks... a feature missing in most nicer hotels these days... and the bath products. This is the first time I have loved the bath products enough to want to buy them. The staff was super friendly and courteous. I will go back for sure on my next trip!
