A beautiful, comfortable, conveniently located home away from home in wonderful San Diego!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our month-long stay in this stylish and comfortable condo in the historic El Cortez on Cortez Hill in downtown San Diego. The location was perfect, within walking distance of Little Italy, the Seaport, the Gaslamp, and Balboa Park (if you don't mind hills). When we had any need, the owners were incredibly responsive and kind. We highly recommend!

Beautiful Downtown San Diego Condo

  • 5 of 5

My family loved our stay at the El Cortez. The unit is beautifully decorated, spacious and has everything you would need, including gorgeous views of downtown and the bay. The amenities at the El Cortez are great as well - the pool area is perfect, there is a well equipped gym and a fully serviced valet parking garage. Everyone we came across in the building from the valet staff, maintenance crew and other tenants were helpful and courteous. Additionally, the location of the El Cortez is as good as it gets. It's walking distance to the Gaslamp/Petco/Convention Center (a bit of a walk but walkable none-the-less) and has easy access to the 5, 163 and 94. Art was a great host and very responsive to any inquiries we had prior to and during our stay. I highly recommend staying in this unit and I would not hesitate to stay here again during future trips to San Diego.

Wow, what a wonderful place to spend any amount of time. Beautiful, spacious condo in a gorgeous, character building and a true comfortable home away from home. Everyone from the owner to the manager to the valets is incredibly friendly and helpful. The location in sensational San Diego is superb. Great amenities at the doorstep and easy to walk to Balboa Park, Downtown, Gaslamp District, Little Italy, the Harbour and such. With a bus, trolley and Coastal Train pass, it's a hop, skip and jump to go farther afield to charming Coronado, delightful La Jolla, quaint Cardiff and all. Highly recommend staying here! :)

Location and a View

  • 4 of 5

Condo was spacious (except for the kitchen) and had an incredible view of the San Diego skyline. The complex is very secure and the staff (valet and complex staff were first rate). Be prepared for some evening noise - you are of course in the downtown area and a climb up the hill! The condo is situated close to the Gas Lamp district and Little Italy as well as the tourist attractions such as Balboa Park, Zoo, Midway Maritime Museum etc. etc. The instructions on the use of the condo and how to leave it were greatly appreciated.

There were some slight issues with the condo such as drafty windows and uncomfortable couch, but I still would recommend it.

One other issue we encountered was a delay in receiving our damage deposit but again I would recommend this condo and the owner.

Cortez Stay

  • 5 of 5

I wouldn't change anything about this place. The Cortez building is a unique building with awesome gym, pool area, and views of the harbor and city. Perfect location to get to all of the downtown neighborhoods on foot. Interior of the unit is well furnished and clean. Two large bedrooms with nice bathrooms attached. All the kitchen amenities you could need. I stayed for four months and wished I could have stayed longer. Highly recommended for anyone looking to explore downtown San Diego and surrounding area.
