San Diego Area Hotel - The Best San Diego Area Hotels

downtown beach world near

San Diego area hotels are both plentiful and diverse, offering resort atmosphere, rustic retreats and boutique sophistication, along with proximity to the city’s best attractions. When choosing a hotel in San Diego, there are different things to take into account. For one, do you want to be downtown near the harbor or Gaslamp District, or near one of the city’s many beaches and Sea World? If you want to be on or near the beach, there are all manner of accomodations to choose from—from non-descript motel-style lodgings up to the grand and historic Hotel del Coronado, which has rooms starting from $265. The surrounding Coronado Beach has been named the #2 beach in America by The Travel Channel. If you can’t quite shell out those kinds of beans, something a bit cheaper can be found on Pacific Beach or Mission Beach, two top destination neighborhoods in SD. For downtown accommodations, all the big names in hospitality are here, along with gems such as the U.S. Grant, in the heart of downtown.

The Comfort Inn Mission Bay is a good bet if you’re “doing” Sea World, and has rates starting from $90. If you’re on the hunt for the hipper, more sophisticated side of San Diego, try The Keating—billed as the only true boutique hotel in downtown—with rooms from $229. Combining the best in Italian design, and a nod to Euro chic, The Keating is steps from the Gaslamp, Petco Park and other downtown attractions. Be sure to check out its Sway Lounge and Merk Bistro Italiano. Also in the heart of downtown, the majestic U.S. Grant is an opulent anachronism amongst San Diego’s ultra-modern vibe, and has been ranked one of the top 128 hotels in the world by Conde Nast Traveler magazine. You get the best in service and quality accomodations here, where preferred pricing packages start from $189.

Also in the running for best of San Diego area hotels: The ultra-hip and sexy W, located downtown; The Empress Hotel in La Jolla; The Pearl Hotel at Point Loma; and the Lodge at Torrey Pines, on the famed golf course, and in close proximity to Del Mar and its famous racetrack.
