Want to stay in luxury in the heart of the city with a view of the harbor? Look no further than the Intercontinental San Diego.

Take the glass elevators from street level to the spacious and well appointed lobby where you’ll find the concierge and reception desks as well as their signature Vistal restaurant, serving Southern California coastal cuisine.

Elevators to other levels of the hotel are secure and lead to the well-equipped fitness room, the outdoor pool, plush fire pit areas and access to Layover, their outdoor bar. There’s plenty of room for a group to spread out and enjoy the sunset here.

For a real treat, take the lift all the way to the 19th floor and push the doors open to the hidden oasis of Seneca, an Italian-inspired terrace restaurant with incredible decor and scenery.

In your room, you’ll find luxurious bedding, cozy robes, a safe to store your valuables, a coffee/tea set up and a comfy chair, all while taking in the magnificent views from the floor-to-ceiling windows.

And if that’s not enough, their nightly turn down service with dimmed lighting, soft music and chocolates on your pillow is sure to close out your day splendidly.

Lucky enough to snag a room on the Club level? You’ll also have daily lounge access for two people to Club Intercontinental plus upgraded in-room amenities and exclusive services.

Within walking distance to Seaport Village, Little Italy, the Gaslamp Quarter, USS Midway, the ferry to Coronado and more, you’ll find that the Intercontinental is the perfect choice for your San Diego getaway.
