The hospitality industry, specifically hotels, rakes in over 500 billion dollars annually internationally. With the best room service, gourmet meals, quality beddings and accommodations, it is no wonder people buy into the hotels’ glamour. But sometimes people forget that determining a good hotel is not always necessarily about finding the priciest ones, or finding the ones that provide the most amenities. You have to look at your own needs, budget, and the overall package they offer. If you’re looking to spend just a night or two, you don’t necessarily need a place that has the best of the best. For southern Californian locals and tourists alike, here is a list of some of the best hotelsin San Diego (all with at least a 4/5 star rating) in terms of quality, price, and overall services and perks they provide:
