The Bristol, San Diego
The Bristol, located about a block from Horton Plaza and three blocks from the Gaslamp Quarter, is a boutique hotel with 102 guest rooms. It houses a vast Pop art collection, featuring originals from icons Andy Warhol and Peter Max, displayed via an “art walk” on the ground floor. There is a top-floor ballroom with a retractable roof for special events. The Bristol is certified by the California Green Lodging Program, which means that the hotel implements practices such as providing recycling receptacles and bulk-dispensed amenities in guestrooms to reduce waste.
