Why We Love This Hotel

  • All-suite downtown hotel, good home base to explore the area
  • Located across from Seaport Village and a five-minute walk to trolley stop
  • All rooms have a separate living room and mini kitchen
  • Free nightly cocktails and an indoor heated pool


Strictly speaking, the Embassy Suites San Diego Bay - Downtown is a business-centric hotel, but its spacious all-suite accommodations mean it’s also a good bet for families. Five minutes on foot to the Seaport Village trolley stop, the location makes it convenient for exploring downtown attractions as well as area beaches. SeaWorld and the San Diego Zoo are less than 15 minutes away by car.

Upon entering the circa-1980’s property, it feels as though you've stepped foot somewhere in the tropics rather than Southern California. The 12-story atrium is filled with tropical plants and koi ponds meander through the center. Here, the manager holds a free nightly drinks reception from 5:30-7:30 p.m. (two free cocktails per person).

Family-friendly facilities include a heated indoor pool and a complimentary breakfast buffet, with cooked-to-order options. Washers and dryers on the 11th and 12th floors (extra charge) are handy for longer stays. There’s also a well-equipped fitness room and a relaxed bar and restaurant serving one-pound hamburgers and beer from a local microbrewery.

Each suite comes with a separate living/dining room equipped with a sofa bed, a granite-finished bathroom and a mini kitchen, complete with a microwave, mini fridge and wet bar. Corner suites offer more space, and two-bedroom suites also have two bathrooms.
