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).
