Renown for it’s beautiful beaches, hilly geography, and mild year-round weather, San Diego attracts tourists for many reasons. Attractions like Balboa Park, Belmont Amusement Park and the world famous SeaWorld are amongst a handful of places to visit while you’re there. ... read more
Being on the southern end of the west coast, the beaches are perfect for lounging or a surf lesson. The weather makes it an ideal city for a destination wedding or for golf enthusiasts to improve their game. No matter what time of year, San Diego is the perfect destination to get away to.

Finding a suitable and upscale hotel within close proximity to some of the major park attractions is easy. With it’s garden room, stained glass windows and penthouse suites, Britt Scripps Inn is the very definition of luxury. And just like Balboa Park Inn, it’s minutes from the San Diego Zoo. At each, you’ll enjoy amenities like a mini bar, WI-FI, jacuzzi tubs and a gourmet continental breakfast. W San Diego Hotel has a gorgeous rooftop beach bar, known as The Rooftop Bar, and is the perfect place to spend your happy hour. Rich in history and sitting on West Broadway, The US Grant features many of the same upper class options and resides just outside of the lively Gaslamp Quarter, an area famous for their street festivals and Mardi Gras celebration.

North of downtown San Diego, La Jolla Shores is a beautiful, family friendly beach and surfer’s paradise in La Jolla. Beautiful condominiums and houses overlook the Pacific Ocean and are accompanied by extravagant accommodations like The Pantai Inn, the newest oceanfront hotel in La Jolla. Still very upscale and right in the middle of the village is the award winning La Valencia. It includes a restaurant, bar, pool and spa for those who aren’t a fan of the sand. North of La Jolla sits Rancho Santa Fe. Gorgeously constructed homes sit on mesas with fabulous views of the ocean, valleys and mountains. It harbors a few elite and upper class hotels including the award winning Inn at Rancho Santa Fe.

Downtown San Diego is no stranger to fine dining. Gaslamp Quarter is heavily populated with 5 star restaurants from the sophisticated and scrumptious Blue Point to Lou & Mickey's Restaurant and Cocktail Lounge. And for free wine and little to no cab fare, stay at the Hotel Solamar, featuring spectacular service, a rooftop bar and a sleek pool terrace.

Along the coast in Mission Bay, a little bit further north of Sail and Fiesta Bay, there is a range of upscale establishments serving everything from Italian cuisine to Japanese fare. Caffe Bella Italia has a delectable menu, wood fired oven and amazing service with a cozy atmosphere. Haiku is noted for their exquisite sushi and Hibachi. Nearby are a number of quality oceanfront hotels like the luxurious Ocean Park Inn.

In between West Harbor Drive and West Broadway, there are a number of places to shop. This includes stores like Nordstrom and BCBG, along with many fine jewelry stores and boutiques. Westfield Horton Plaza is a large public square that harbors many of these specialty shops and features dining options as well. A little bit south of this is Manchester Grand Hyatt, with a beautiful waterfront view just over Embarcadero Marina. With a full spa, event center, cabana rentals, fitness facilities and tennis courts, the Hyatt succeeds in providing a versatile experience for any traveler.

    Like all Westins, you'd expect to find comfort, service, and a modicum of class at the Westin Gaslamp-- and you will. It's not over the top; it's a Westin. There's a pool, wifi, and it's right in the heart of the Gaslamp quarter, which is the main draw. There are so many things to see, do, and eat all within ...

    The RB Inn is serene and beautiful, and unexpectedly located in the extreme suburb on Rancho Bernardo. My favorite rooms here are the spa-view deluxe rooms. Definitely treat yourself to Sunday brunch at El Bizcocho, it beats any Sunday brunch you've ever had!

    What a lovely bed and breakfast. The food was superb, the staff was incredibly friendly, and the house is beautiful. Plus the inn is on a really mellow street so there’s not too much mayhem or too many loud noises to bother you. I can’t wait to come back!
