Petco Park Hotel Guide

Omni - recommended hotelFor anyone visiting San Diego, the first question is simple: Do you want to stay downtown near the stadium or in a vacation rental near the beach? There are definitely pros to both, and cons to neither. It's a great benefit to be able to walk to the baseball game and everything nearby. But it's also a tragedy to come all the way to San Diego and stop just a few miles short of the beach.
