For our 4 nights in San Diego we decided to split our stay into two different neighborhoods.  The first two nights we stayed in the Bayfront/Downtown Area and the last two nights we stayed on Coronado Island.  I wanted to have high quality, but didn’t feel like we needed to splurge for our mini-break. So I looked for 4-star family-friendly hotels in San Diego. Both hotels were high quality 4-star hotels with swimming pools and restaurants on-site.  Our first hotel was the SpringHill Suites Downtown/Bayfront.  This hotel is well-appointed and has a rooftop pool and a continental breakfast buffet my kids loved!
