Default San Diego Questions....

I have been trying to find a decent hotel that offered Free airport transfers and free transfers to the ship. Most of the ones I am finding are not available on our dates. My question is: How far and how much for a cab from the airport to the downtown area (gaslamp area?).....and then about how much and how far for a cab to Pier? Thanks!!

Did you try the Embassy Suites ? They pick up at the airport and will take you to your ship.

So will the Best Western Bayside on Ash Street. A cab should be no more than $15 if that because everything is very close. Enjoy!

Default Gas Lamp Distract

Bid $150.00 on a 4 star hotel on Price Line, use Taxi's and don't worry about the cost.
Point being, you will spend more money partying in the Gas Lamp District then if you just dine at a local restaurant close to your Price Line Hotel including Taxi's.
