Leisure amenities include a modern fitness facility, an intimate meeting space and a tranquil Italian-style courtyard. We are happy to provide limited underground parking on a first-come, first-serve basis (includes in/out privileges).

Just moments from the hotel, San Diego’s exciting attractions, art and culture, and nightlife await. If there is anything you’d like to see or experience during your stay – from dinner and a show in the Gaslamp Quarter to tickets for a local attraction or sunset cruise on San Diego Bay – allow us to handle all of the arrangements.

On your next vacation or business trip, we invite you to discover one of Southern California’s best-kept secrets - the intimate and stylishly affordable La Pensione Hotel in downtown San Diego.
