Visited the hotel for a conference and had a really nice stay at the Sofia Hotel. The suites are beautifully decorated and very clean. It’s such a beautiful old hotel that’s been renovated in the Gaslamp district. An easy walk to the bay and 5th Ave where there are loads of restaurants etc.

Not a good experience.. When I first arrived, the hot water was not working and had to be fixed by maintenance.. I thought the toilets were way too low for my preference, and the furniture, ceiling, and walls had scratches and were poorly maintained.. I stayed here because I was in town for work and my company booked it, but I would never stay here for personal travel/pleasure

We only stayed one night befor getting on a cruise ship. Had I known how beautiful and elegant the Sophia is, I would have stayed several nights! The hotel is well-maintained and staff are personable, professional, and efficient. The food was wonderful and the bar was cozy.

As I said “Really nice hotel in a great location”. Room was a little small but had everything I needed. Bar was nice and staff were friendly. Didn’t eat there but had drinks, coffee shop over the road was great for coffee and breakfast. Nice walk down to harbour in the morning passed Santa Fe train station.
