In the belly of bustling downtown San Diego sits this AAA Four Diamond getaway and it’s all about location, location, location! The Gaslamp in one of THE hottest spots in this SoCal city. Night life and day life abound! And it’s all steps away from this hotel.
Balboa Theater architectural beauty was a vaudeville palace in the 1920’s, went into ruins decades later, and was resurrected recently and is now one of the premier cultural venues. Shows run the gamut from Mozart to Bonnie Rate, or a chef demonstration by Ina Gardner and TV tapings of Last Comic Standing. (0.1 miles from hotel)
“Se habla fresh!” Puesto Restaurant has fancy MX street food so authentic you’d think it was made south of the border. The chic fiestaria located in The Headquarters plaza captures nearby San Diego Bay breezes. Salud! (0.6 miles from hotel)
The Shout! House dueling pianos is SOOO fun! Face to face pianos sit center stage with wildly talented players who jam for hours. The audience not only watches, they participate by singing and dancing on top of the behemoths! (0.6 miles from hotel)
Oui, more s’il vous plaît! Le Tropezienne pastry at Le Parfait Paris is just one of the unbelievable selection. The display case has milles-feuilles and macarons arranged like Tiffany’s organizes their diamonds and pearls. Forgo any semblance of a diet when you’re here. You can fast later. (0.5 miles from hotel).
Or, better yet, grab an eco-friendly bike rental and eat croissants till your heart’s content! There’s multiple locations, but the closest is at G St. & 2nd Ave. (0.5 miles from hotel)
Karaoke and tacos every Tuesday at Werewolf American Pub. Need I say more?? (0.4 miles from hotel).
Gourmet India restaurant’s spin on discount booze is called “Hours of Happiness” and it’s daily 3 p.m. – 6 p.m. $2 mimosas, 1/2 price samosas. Food is excellent, too! Namaste! (0.2 miles from hotel).
The Westin’s lush lobby warrants you to pull up a chair and stay awhile. Beautiful!
Few cities boast a retired aircraft carrier museum along their docks. USS Midway is a symbol of the freedom so many men and women fought for and it’s a must see when in San Diego. (1 mile).
