Expert Reviews
This 189-room hotel in downtown San Diego is a good value, with an airport shuttle, great bay views from the restaurant, and some cool freebies.
A $15 million renovation turned this former budget motel into a contemporary hotel-motel with two additional buildings, a stylish restaurant and lounge, and a fitness center.
Given Porto Vista's excellent location and extras like free yoga sessions, cooking classes, and pet-friendly happy hours on the rooftop deck, a stay here will still feel like la dolce vita.
