Recently remodeled, this San Diego boutique hotel (a registered historic site) still has that refined charm of the 1920s with fine period touches including crystal chandeliers, coffered ceilings and antique furnishings.

The stunning Top of the Park Penthouse is a private rooftop terrace with breathtaking views of the San Diego skyline.
They can accommodate up to 150 guests in comfort and refinement or up to 350 for a stand-up cocktail style reception.
