San Diego is a much favored site for conventions because of the weather and the San Diego Convention Center and adjacent Gas Light District. We have attended many medically-related convention events over the years in San Diego, but, honestly, staying in a hotel is a drag because of expense, including parking, and having to get out of the room at inconvenient times for the housekeepers. Typically, all meals must be eaten out. Restaurant wines, while good, are excessively marked up. My wife and I found our recent stay at Ben's East Village property went a long way to solve our discomfiture with hotels. We truly felt like we were at home!
Terrific Location.....Downtown Living plus Free Parking
