Marriott Marquis Marina - two towersWhen visiting San Diego, I always return to this waterfront Marriott resort for comfort and amenities.

The hotel is a short walk away from the Gaslamp Quarter, Convention Center, Seaport Village, and excellent waterfront dining and destinations. 

Marriott Marquis Marina - room with a viewThe most important part of a hotel is the rooms, and they don't disappoint. The beds are comfortable with a couch and a desk, and the bathroom is well-appointed with fluffy towels, the TV is excellent, a coffee maker, a fridge, and the WiFi is dependable. What more can you ask for.

Well, the amenities, of course! And this hotel has a lot to offer, from a large heated pool to a garden with comfortable seats and firepits for relaxation to a full SPA and gym. 

Marriott Marquis Marina - Pool and GardenThe pool area has a kids' pool and an accessible jacuzzi. Also, next to the pool and overlooking the Marina, you will find Roy's Hawaiian restaurant. 

We enjoyed a buffet-style breakfast at the Marina Kitchen, which included an omelet station, pastries, fruit, and a waffle maker.  

Back in the room, the view was amazing. We could see the Marina, bay, and Coronado bridge from the large windows.
