I booked a room at this hotel due to the great location and proximity to a conference that I needed to attend. The hotel is excellent if you want to be by the city attractions. It is modern, clean and the bed was comfortable. Much appreciated after a long day. The staff were all very friendly. Enjoyed my brief stay.

Exactly what was looking for for a short trip from OC. Short walk from the train station/waterfront and close to the Gaslamp area, but not in it. Room was a bit on the smaller side, but good value for the last minute deal found. The resort fee includes 2 bottles of water, yoga, bicycles, and a morning weekend walking tour.

"Great Stay!"

I was trying to make a case to my boss to let me travel to San Diego, but the conference hotel was insanely expensive. Then I found The Sofia, which was quite literally half the price, just a short stroll from the conference site, and the online reviews were quite good. The staff members were all very friendly and helpful, and the room was great. The only downside was the lighting in the sink area was a little dim. Otherwise, I was very happy with my stay, and would gladly do so again!
