San Diego Marriott Downtown

We flew into San Diego yesterday and we're staying at the Marriott in the Gaslight Quarter.

This Hotel is fabulous for the price! It was built in 1928 as a residential hotel. All the original architectural detail has been preserved. The ground floor was a bank and is now a spectacular lobby, bar and dining room. We're on the 10th floor(of 14) and we have an interesting view of the apartment building being constructed next door. I can look out the window into the control cab of the tower crane. I can see workers setting up cement forms, and I could shout out to them.

Our room is at the end of a long wide marble lined hallway. The room is larger than average and it must have once been part of a suite (our door doesn't have a mail slot like the other rooms).
