A Budget-Friendly Holiday at the Holiday Inn Express San Diego Downtown 

What Do the Rooms Include?

Holiday Inn Express is one of the most budget-friendly hotels in San Diego. Located on 7th Avenue, this 136-room hotel occupies three floors and has six different types of rooms. Each suite features basic in-room amenities and pillow-top mattresses for guests to sleep on. If you'd like to enjoy the night view of San Diego from your own room, check the availability online or at the front desk.

What Amenities are Available?

The Holiday Inn Express features the entertainment and business amenities you'd expect, including meeting rooms, complimentary computer stations, and outdoor pools. These make it easy for you to catch up on work, connect with family, and relax. The restaurants feature standard and complimentary breakfasts.  The most distinctive feature of the Holiday Inn is its evening happy hour reception every Sunday to Thursday, which delivers complimentary alcohol beverages and snacks.

What are the Rates Like?

The rooms at the Holiday Inn Express start at $129 per night. Compared to other three-star hotels in downtown San Diego, the room rates are reasonable. A room with two queen beds and a city view will cost you $134 per night, but the extra $5 is worth it since you get to have your own balcony and a stunning view of the city. The nightly rate of a more spacious, nonsmoking king suite with a sofa bed is $190 per night.

What’s There to Do Nearby?

The Holiday Inn Express is within walking distance of Copley Symphony Hall, where you can watch concerts, comedy shows, and dance performances with state-of-the-art sound facilities. If you're a shopaholic, simply walk two blocks to Westfield Horton Plaza and start shopping for clothes and souvenirs. You can also walk to the scenic waterfront at sunset for a beautiful evening stroll.

What's the Bottom Line?

Overall, the Holiday Inn Express is perfect for budget travelers and families seeking a wonderful holiday retreat. The Holiday Inn Express provides complimentary shuttles for guests to travel to and from the airport and main attractions downtown, which saves a substantial amount of time and money on cab fares. The friendly and professional service provided by the hotel staff usually exceeds guests’ expectations.
