San Diego City Views

Posted on May 9, 2014 by under Travel.    

I had the opportunity to travel to San Diego for the ICMI Contact Center Expo & Conference this week. It was my first time in the city so I did what any first-timer would do. I took pictures of all the city views that I could.

We stayed at the San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina because of its proximity to the San Diego Convention Center where the conference was held. The hotel’s location gave us perfect access to Seaport Village, Gaslamp District, and also Coronado across the bay which was accessible by ferry right behind the convention center.

Here are some pictures from my room at the Marriott Marquis & Marina.

I suppose a view of the harbor would have been better but my room was clean and comfortable. I had no complaints. I also left my curtains open the entire time and enjoyed looking at the brightly-lit city at night.

A view of the Marriott’s gorgeous swimming pool area would have been nice too. I read on FourSquare that the pool is kept at a delightfully warm temperature year-round. Unfortunately, I didn’t pack a swimsuit so I didn’t get to test this tip for myself.

This is the view from the west terrace of the convention center. I loved seeing all the boats in the dock.

San Diego is such a beautiful city. I’m so grateful that I had the opportunity to go. If things go well maybe I can take Brian there next year so I can share the experience with him. He wants to check out their zoo and other attractions. There’s much to see and do and I didn’t really get to see as much as I wanted since we were there for the conference. I’m eager to return solely for the purpose of vacationing next time.
