My wife and me, both close to 50 years old and from Europe, was looking for one of the most exclusive hotels in San Diego for a 3 nights stay. We are quite used to luxury, both at home and when we are travelling, so we can easily see when something not is as good as we're told it should be.
But Pacific Terrace hotel is close to the biggest disapointments we have ever experienced - simply because that the price. the web site information and the truth doesn't match. This is a hotel that may be was great when it was new, but nothing seems to have been done since then - and that is very visible. Elevators looked as they not had been cleaned for a long while, real dirty sun beds, all over the place small details that tells you that no one in charge of this hotel really cares about the finish of everything. All together this makes this hotel the most overpriced I've been to - and believe me - I've been to many hotels all over the world the last 20 years.
Of course - the hotel have a 72 hours cancellation policy, so checking out after the first night is impossible. I'm quite sure I know why they need to have this policy...
I have never written a hotel review before, but this experience just forced me to tell everyone looking for a luxury hotel to look somewhere else. Honestly - if someone rates this as a luxury hotel, they have never seen one before
