    I got a really nice deal with this hotel. Good enough that it had a few friends say, "What, you're staying in La Jolla?!?!" Why yes, yes I am! Turns out that prices on hotels around this area are a bit steep, so I really lucked out on this one. The staff was very helpful upon check-in and gave me directions to where I would be staying. Of course, I got lost, but I eventually found the building where my room was. It had a fully stocked kitchen area with granite counter tops, a desk which doubled as my dining table/charging station, flat screen tv, fireplace, sitting area, two closets, linen closet, vanity area, and a bathroom with a shower/tub combo. The bed was awfully comfy too. It was like stepping into a really nice studio apartment. The complimentary breakfast every morning from 7-10 was very convenient, not to mention good. I was excited to use their waffle maker. =P There were only a few minor setbacks during my stay here. The parking on Saturday night was very minimal. I suppose that's to be expected, seeing as it was a weekend, not to mention a 3 day weekend. You can hear the noise from the occupants in the room upstairs if you happen to get a room on the first floor. And on my last night, I found out that the dishwasher didn't work (it was loaded, with the dish washing detergent already inside the dispenser). I told them about the situation upon checking out and they apologized and made sure maintenance would have a look at it. I have yet to be stirred wrong when booking a hotel with Marriott. You got yourself one satisfied and dedicated customer.

    Our family truly enjoyed staying in this Hotel! With a loft, kitchenette, and Master Bedroom and Living area with a pull out bed, our family of four comfortably stayed in central location close enough to everything from favorite Restaurants to the San Diego Zoo, Sea World, and beautiful beaches!

    Very convenient for a long stay! I had some friends staying there when we went to UCSD. It´s really well located, there are quality shops and several restaurantswithin very easy walking distance. The apartment was spacious, very well equipped, including kitchen and living room.
