We stayed in the Bristol for 2 nights in june 2011. We loved it!
The staff at the frontdesk was very friendly and helpfull.
The room was great. It was nicely decorated, fresh, clean, quiet and had everything we needed. LCD TV, fully stocked mini bar, desk, 2 chairs and a table, docking station for your Ipod, a safe, free WiFi and a huge, comfortatble King bed. The bathroom was spacious too, clean and had everything you wished for, like bathrobes and all the amenities you want.
Breakfast at the hotel was very good. If you want you could go out for breakfast. There are plenty of other choices in the area of the hotel.
If we will go back to San Diego, we will defenitely stay at the Bristol again!
