Ups and downs
Upsides: cool neighborhood...lots of good restaurants and bars, short walk to downtown, the waterfront, balboa park, gated parking. Downsides: about 1/4 mile off the approach to the airport, and planes are constantly zooming right through the neighborhood. On the corner of two busy streets, and above a bar. Once inside, the place is relatively quiet, considering. Cheaply furnished and wasn't super clean (though wasn't too bad, either.) Three stories up, no elevator. We hit a relatively mild stretch of weather, but even so, the AC wasn't up to the job. The loft where the bed is got really warm and wouldn't cool down until late at night. We had a good time, but I wouldn't stay here again.
