Top tips for finding the perfect San Diego hotel

Want to stay in a hotel near University of California San Diego? Consider hotels such as Sheraton La Jolla Hotel, which is less than a mile from the university and has a garden with an outdoor pool, or Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa, which is the same distance away and has a spa.
Many of San Diego’s attractions are spread across the city, meaning it is often best to select a hotel near the main attractions you would like to see, and to travel by metro, trolley or bus to the others. For example, you could choose the Four Points by Sheraton San Diego Downtown if you are interested in visiting Balboa Park, which less than a mile away.
San Diego hosts a variety of conventions throughout the year, causing the city’s hotels to fill up quickly. Check the convention calendar before booking to strategically pick the dates of your vacation and avoid these events. If you have no choice but to visit San Diego during a convention, check the Mission Bay neighborhood to see if there are any cheap hotel prices and availabilities. The Dana on Mission Bay and Hilton both frequently have deals.
If the hotels located in Downtown are out of your budget, opt for a hotel in Old Town instead, such as the Cosmopolitan Hotel & Restaurant. Old Town is one of the oldest neighborhoods in San Diego, and it is linked by an affordable trolley to Downtown.
For those traveling with their families, consider booking a hotel near the San Diego Zoo, such as The Lodge at Torrey Pines. The area near the San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park has many family-friendly activities, and it is located near Downtown and the trolley system.
