Room is OK but noise kept me awake”

I stayed for 5 nights. The first two was on the weekend. Fellow tenants kept talking and I could clearly hear the conversation coming from the next door and from the hallway. Then, for the other three nights, various kinds of humming noise came from ventilation or plumbing or whatever unknown source. I ended up sleeping badly throughout my stay.

Bristol Hotel centrally located downtown S.D.”

Location to Petco Ball Park; location to nightlife in Gaslamp Dist.; location to fine dining and shops.

Clean room, excellent and friendly service, reasonable price were the primary factors I experienced at The Bristol Hotel. The close location to the Gaslamp District and Petco Ball Park were the initial reasons why I chose The Bristol and it did not disappoint. We were able to walk to the ball park, fine dining, nightlife, shopping, waterfront, etc.

The guy who checked us in (mike I think his name was) was so friendly and even though he was busy and trying to get off work he found us a sushi restaurant to go to at 111pm on a Sunday. Ive had the most incredible experiences at the Briatol Hotel; they have hosted 2 banquets for us as well and I look forward to hopefully going back to stay their soon.

部屋が広く、くつろげる

部屋が広くくつろげます。トローリーの駅にも近く便利です。朝食が取れないのが残念です。夜も静かです。ティファナにゆくにはトローリーに乗っていくべきですが、駅がホテルの近くにあります。1DAYチケット($5)をかっていけばよいでしょう。片道40分くらいです。トローリーは何時までやっているのか不明ですが、21時まではやってました。

客を値踏みする?”

ホートンプラザには徒歩で近い
ベットがやわらかく、へたっていて腰がいたくなった。

若者の団体?(パーティーをしていたのか)酔っ払いの若者がエレベーター前に次々と集まり大騒、その団体はなぜか上層階に上がっていきました(私を含むエレベーター待ちのゲストを無視して)エレベーターは独占され、6回待ち、その様子をすぐ近くで見ていたフロントのスタッフは注意できないのでしょうか。またその団体のカップル1組が私の泊まっていた4階の廊下で・・・ 私はこのホテルの予約にあたり「なるべく景色の良い高層階を希望します」と記載しましたが、チェックインの時、いきなりの質問が「ビジネスですか観光ですか?」って聞かれました。 何のための質問なのか、用意された部屋は窓から全面となりのビルの壁しか見えない部屋でした。リクエストが必ず通るとは思いませんが、せっかく記載したリクエストの認識すらしていないのなら、この欄も無いほうが期待しなくて良いと思うくらいですね。

交通方便

和家人共三人同遊,當時訂購三人房,沒注意其雖為雙人床房型,但非為queen size床型,因此過窄。 另代客停車每日收取美金26元,三日住宿意外多付不少停車費用。 惟有免費網路可用,是其賣點。
