Why Stay At Pacific Terrace Hotel
Situated at the north end of the Pacific Beach boardwalk, a property offering a sense of tranquility amidst San Diego's bustling beachfront scene.
Located on a bluff at the ocean's edge, the Pacific Terrace hotel overlooks a picture perfect stretch of white sandy beach. Don't feel like getting sand between your toes? Just hang at the hotel's palm-tree lined outdoor pool complete with hot tub and a panoramic view of the incoming waves. For a case of the munchies, cookies, coffee, and iced tea are at the ready in the lobby throughout the day. Another thoughtful bonus: spa treatments are available in-room or poolside. The spacious guest rooms are designed in South Seas style with plantation shutters; richly colored hibiscus-flowered comforters and hand carved dark-toned wooden furniture. Each room features a balcony or terrace and all have warm-hued marble bathrooms with separate sinks or vanity areas. There's no restaurant on the premises, but many neighboring restaurants conveniently allow you to bill meals to the hotel.
Rent a beach cruiser from the hotel and do some sightseeing from Mission Bay's ocean side boardwalks.
Want to sleep in, but worried about housekeeping? No problem! Simply call the front desk and schedule the time you want your room cleaned.
Arrive at San Diego International Airport (SAN), which is approximately 11 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 20 minutes of travel time.610 Diamond Street, San Diego, California, United States

Why We Love San Diego
An abundance of sun, sand and surf make San Diego the epitome of that cherished laid-back Southern California feeling.
1044 Wall Street, La Jolla, San Diego.
Where to Drink: Just about equidistant from the beach and the hotel you'll stumble upon the Firehouse Lounge. On the breezy roof terrace facing the sea catch the chill vibe and unwind to smooth deep house music. Try to make it for Champagne Sundays for $16 bottles of high-end bubbly and $5 man-mosas (the manly mimosa version made with Stoli orange and Hefeweizen).
722 Grand Ave., San Diego.
Where to Shop: Look for one-of-a-kind artwork, home furnishings and design pieces at Kettner Art & Design District in Little Italy. Among the highlights along Kettner Boulevard and India Street are Scott White Contemporary Art (939 W. Kalmia St.) and DNA European Design Studio (750 W. Fir St.).
Best Day Trip: Need a dose of that charming country feel? Make sure to visit the town of Julian about 65 miles inland. The quaint hamlet, founded by Civil War veterans in 1869, is famous for its bountiful apple orchards and fall harvest. Get a map from the Chamber office and take a self-guided historical tour around town.
