The Bristol Hotel

Anyone who knows our team knows we have the opportunity to stay in some incredible, premium hotels across the country. We like to think this makes our favorite boutique hotel recommendations pretty well vetted. After a recent stay in sunny downtown San Diego, we can’t recommend The Bristol Hotel enough. This central city boutique hotel is filled with West Coast character and has Californian coastal comfort to spare.

During our recent visit, The Bristol Hotel was in the final phase of guest room renovations to only improve the full California hotel experience. When making reservations, look for the Fab, Primo and Suite categories to ensure you have an opportunity to experience the hotels newest rooms complete with sustainable “green” amenities and San Diego-styled atmosphere.  Fresh, bright, modern styling and a subtle mix of textures and colors mean The Bristol’s rooms are always luxurious and, above all, relaxing.

West Coast Style & Luxury Amenities

Each Bristol room has a bright contemporary twist reminding you that you are in the land of sunshine. The urban coastal aesthetic features premium touches, including summer-white, triple-sheeted, Sevenfold Bedding and sumptuous West Coast-designed, Legacy Lotus Loop towel collection. This downtown hotel is so expertly designed that it truly feels like a break from the everyday hustle and bustle. Still, every well-loved San Diego attraction a traveler could need is located very nearby. This includes the famous Gaslamp Quarter, which is just a short walk from the Bristol’s lobby doors. For traveling families and couples try The San Diego Zoo, San Diego Convention Center, Balboa Park, Sea World San Diego, or Seaport Village. They are all just minutes from The Bristol’s central location.

Perfect for Work or Play 

The eco-friendly rooms and key, modern lifestyle touches made it incredibly easy to relax and work. We felt well cared for valued as guests. With a 3:00pm check-in and 12:00pm check-out, who could argue? Not to mention they have an on-site exercise room, bar/lounge, and comfortable meeting rooms and business stations. The entire hotel also features complimentary W-Fi.

If you weren’t set yet, get ready to book your next stay. The Bristol Hotel is pet friendly. I repeat.. PET FRIENDLY. This means you can bring the whole family, or even just your furry friend, along for the trip with less hassle. We recommend setting aside time for a walk on one of San Diego’s famous beaches.

So whether it’s work, play, or a little of both, The Bristol Hotel is a marvelous choice for your next San Diego visit!
