"Awesome Boutique Hotel"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed March 21, 2020
This boutique hotel is in downtown San Diego in the heart of the city and close to all the amenities. We stayed from 3/12-/3/16/20. Our plans were to stay for 10 days but due to the corona virus we had the return home. The service at this hotel is superb. From the staff, the suites and the amenities including great wifi are all worth mentioning. We took advantage of the gym (2nd floor) and the YOGA class with Lauren was great. The beds are super comfortable for a restful night sleep after a day touring. The suite also has a nice seating area separate from the bedroom, microwave and fridge. There is a filtered water station in every floor. There are many restaurants walking distance from the hotel. They provide you with a map of downtown and bikes if you want to explore on your own. They also offer a free tour on Sunday morning to see the historical sites of downtown. We took the Old Town Trolley and were able to see from Balboa Park to Coronado beach among other attractions. The staff was very flexible when we had to change our reservations twice. We have traveled all over the world and can tell you this hotel is one of the best in the west coast. John, the manager is very friendly and has been there for a long time and knows his business. We highly recommend this hotel to anyone planning to visit San Diego.

"The Inflexibility of Cancelon/Sofia Hotel"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed March 16, 2020
My conference was canceled 5 days out and Cancelon was not able to cancel my reservation, apparently. The cancelation was due to Coronavirus. The inflexibility cost me money I can ill afford. I will no longer use Cancelon or the hotels with which it is associated. The Sofia Hotel told me the could not cancel the reservation, only Cancelon could. Really?
