Nice clean suite.
The suite was very clean and well stocked for our 7 day stay. The Gas Lamp Quarter is a bustling area with active night life. Although the room was great for us, the location was not the best choice for my wife and I. The presence of the homeless people was noticeable, but not overwhelming. This location is good if bars and nightlife are your thing. The entry way to the hotel is only a door between two restaurant/bars; initially a little hard to locate and scary. A speak-easy bar is located in the basement floor which was intriguing, we didn't explore much further than peaking in the door when the elevator allowed access to the B floor. The TV uses ChromeCast to stream from cell phones. No cable or satellite TV. We used our laptop and HDMI cable to stream our movies and shows. Come prepared. The room has an HDMI cable. highly suggest bringing a USB or USB-c to HDMI adapter and laptop to connect to the flatscreen TV for in room entertainment. Several CVS and 7-Eleven stores nearby for essentials. Within walking distance of Seaport Village, the Embarcadero, Little Italy, Old Town. $2.50 on the bus can get you pretty much anywhere in the San Diego area, including Zoo, beaches and airport. From the airport, take the 992 MTS bus to 5th street and Broadway. No need for a taxi or Uber.

Just what I needed!
The Marin is located in vibrant GasLamp district of San Diego - steps from the convention center, marinas, and Petco Park. The room was well furnished and outfitted for longer stays - and thoughtfully added an noise machine and earplugs which really helped on the nights that my party ended before the street party outside! I'm looking to see if the is a Sonder in the other cities I visit!

The area is what’s located was the only good thing. The con was broken elevator ended up in a kitchen to get out of hotel. There’s no parking. And the tv had no cable or wasn’t even a smart tv to make it easier to watch something. We had to tv all weekend. Like not everyone has chromecast or wants to download something for it to work. I couldn’t even connect to Wi-Fi. I tried many time

Noise between apartments and slight smell of pot through the air circulation. Otherwise great!
