Stay in Style while in San Diego Little Italy

All San Diego has to offer is at your fingertips, we’re at the intersection of fun and style.

Porto Vista has developed into one of the most stylish and affordable boutique hotels in the city. With 190 mid-century-style rooms, including 5 suites, private valet parking, rooftop “spool” (heated mini-pool with spa jets) and event space, there’s something for everyone. Our location in downtown’s vibrant Little Italy neighborhood also provides our guests access to a hotbed of cultural, culinary and artistic activity. Che bella! It’s a neighborhood rich in history and class, and we strive to pay tribute to that through our dedication to vintage comfort—but with a twist. Think 1960’s Mediterranean vibes: Don Draper wearing shorts, or Audrey Hepburn on a Vespa.

Sleep in Style

Relax, rest and catch some Zzz’s in one of our boutique, mid-century-style rooms. With six styles of rooms at the Porto Vista, we’re certain there’s something for everybody. Each room is accessible through exterior corridors, so there’s never a wasted opportunity to bask in San Diego’s perfect weather. Original art in every room transforms your stay into a unique, artistic experience. And when the sun sets, relax on our soft pillows, comfy bedding and fresh linens. Vacationing is hard work, but someone has to do it.

Discover Art in Style

Discover contemporary local and international artists at Porto Vista Hotel. 

In collaboration with 1805 Gallery Director Lauren Siry, the Porto Vista Hotel is pleased to present an arts program that creatively activates art in unexpected spaces. This concept is unique to the hotel industry introducing our guests to a fun and colorful art experience.
