About Porto Vista Hotel In Little Italy Hotel

Free Wi-Fi, playfully designed rooms and bay views from its restaurant help make The Porto Vista Hotel a solid choice for Our guests. The four-story hotel's 189 non-smoking rooms are playfully designed with wall-covering nostalgic photos and European accented décor. The beds have pillowtop mattresses for lounging while you listen to music from the CD player or surf the web using free Wi-Fi. The hotel's fourth-story restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and offers beautiful views of the bay. A beauty salon and an exercise room round out the on-site amenities. Valet parking and shuttle service during limited hours are both available for an extra fee, and pets are welcome. The hotel is located in San Diego's historic Little Italy, five blocks from the waterfront. It's less than one mile to the entrance of Balboa Park, where there are over a dozen museums and the San Diego Zoo. The bus is two blocks away and provides easy access to downtown locations like Westfield Horton Plaza, an open-air shopping mall, and the nightlife-heavy Gaslamp Quarter. There is also a nearby trolley to Old Town, the quaint mission village where San Diego was born. San Diego International Airport is only two miles away.

Good
Pros: The location of this hotel is perfect! The staff was very friendly. The hotel has a lot of potential.

Poor
Pros: This was a business trip and for a brief visit with family. I liked that the hotel was close to my business location, to the airport and one of the major freeways (I-5).
Cons: This is not a 3 star hotel, its actually a motel. It has outdoor room access,typical for a motel. The rooms have updated bedrooms but the bathrooms were old, with grout so old that that its difficult to get completely cleaned. Downgrade to 2 stars!
