was a vaudeville palace in the 1920’s, went into ruins decades later, and was resurrected recently and is now an architectural beauty with premier cultural events. 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. As you sit on the patio of the chic fiestaria sipping margaritas, you’ll feel breezes and hear seagull’s sing from the nearby San Diego Harbor. Salud

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).

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! (0.0 miles)
Few cities boast a retired aircraft carrier museum along their docks. USS Midway

Petco Park Baseball Stadium
is a jewel in the downtown landscape. It’s surrounded by sea, sky and magnificent high-rises. Behind the scenes guided-tours are offered, taking guests to the press box, dugout, and even a sandy beach with palm trees beyond center field.
