    "All aspects of the stay were excellent. Location is close to everything. The rooms are well done and spacious. Beds were very comfortable. The vibe in the hotel is cool with a retro feel, colorful and inviting. Value was also very good. You are steps from Horton Plaza and Gaslamp."

  • Great Central Location

    "The room was perfect, clean and comfortable. Nichole at the front desk ROCKS! The hotel is modern with a great view of downtown. Covid protocols are followed and we had no concerns about their methods and felt safe. Highly recommend the Bristol if one wants to be in the heart of San Diego. Close to the bay, Petco, Little Italy all in walking distance."

  • Great hotel

    "Nice hotel in the perfect location. I’ve booked the room directly through their website and I’ve got a discount for the valet parking and the late checkout at 1pm. The room is beautiful and clean. Nichole at the front desk was sweet and kind. I’ll definitely stay here again."

  • Absolutely Beautiful! Great Location!

    "The staff here were very friendly. The building itself is gorgeous and the rooms are quite whimsical. I actually liked that you are able to open the window slightly, just enough to let the breeze in. I needed a last minute reservation and was able to find it here. If you enjoy walking this is the hotel for you. You're just over a half mile walking distance to Little Italy and the Gaslamp Quarters in downtown...I was very pleased and will make it my go to place when I visit San Diego."
