Local Airport & Hotels

We recommend flying into the San Diego International Airport (SAN) which is approx. 2 miles from our venue, Britt Scripps Manor.

Below are just a few of the many wonderful hotels San Diego has to offer. Each one is relatively close to the airport and our venue, as well as being close to downtown and several points of interest like the Gaslamp Quarter and Little Italy. You may also want to consider booking an Airbnb or VRBO rental.

Inn at The Park

Inn at the Park, formerly known as Park Manor Suites is central to many attractions and sights, and is a desirable starting point for your journey in this amazing city. Our hotel is located on the edge of Balboa Park West within walking distance to the world-renowned San Diego Zoo, the Old Globe Theatre, 15 fine museums, beautiful gardens and acclaimed performing arts venues. Other nearby attractions include the vibrant Hillcrest neighborhood, SeaWorld, The Gaslamp District, Little Italy, Cruise Ship Terminal, and the USS Midway and Maritime Museum. Old Town, Coronado Island and the beaches are just minutes away from our boutique hotel in San Diego.

We are also located near the area's major medical centers including Scripps Mercy Hospital, UCSD Medical Center, University Hospital and Continental Rehabilitation Hospital, and the Balboa Naval Hospital.

Porto Vista Hotel

In 1983, the structure of what would become the Porto Vista Hotel was built and operated as a motel at its present location in San Diego’s historic Little Italy district. Under a different name, the motel offered limited services with comfortable guest rooms. Initially, a 102 guest room motel, the first phase of expansion began in October of 2006, adding 40 guest rooms. The second phase of expansion began in October of 2006, adding to the structure additional facilities and 49 guest rooms. This phase was completed in August of 2008, offering the full-service facility and 191 guest rooms that is the Porto Vista Hotel.

Today, the family-owned and operated Porto Vista Hotel offers all the amenities you would expect at a first-class hotel, including a state-of-the-art fitness facility, full-service business center, wireless internet access, executive-class guest rooms with harbor view balconies, suites and two-level lofts perfect for entertaining. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the award-winning Glass Door restaurant with spectacular panoramic views of San Diego harbor.
