San Diego's downtown area is delightfully urban and eclectic. It comprises of eight neighbourhoods including East Village, Little Italy, and the Embarcadero. The most popular is the lively Gaslamp Quarter, a National Historic District featuring brick sidewalks, gaslights and Victorian-style buildings. Wyatt Earp once ran a couple of saloons here, and his ghost may still haunt it's dynamic hub of 90+ restaurants, 40 bars and 100 retail shops!
Surrounding downtown is Old Town State Historic Park, a tribute to the 18th century days when San Diego was California's first Spanish settlement. At the heart are a cluster of historic abode buildings and all around are lively restaurants selling Mexican food and crafts. This is a fun area to visit especially in the evening, you'll feel like you are being transported back into Old Mexico.
Where you stay is the heart of your holiday. Location reigns supreme but do you prefer resort facilities or unique and boutique? Historic and old world or modern and shiny?
We aim to present choices across the spectrum but there are many hundreds of places to stay

We would rate the Bellagio as one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in.
Fabulous, glitzy, exciting. We loved having breakfast at the poolside
café... one of our best experiences ever. If it hadn't been for you we
wouldn't have had the suite or cabana and we loved them. We both agreed
that the hotel was the best for us and you had suggested that so well done!
