My wife and I are visiting San Diego, first time, for a long weekend early June. Planning to see the city, go to Petco, maybe beach. I'd like to ask if we should stay at Marriott Coronado and use ferry and taxi's - can you get to the municipal beach on Coronado? Or should we stay in the city (@ Old Town or where?) and travel intracity. Do we need the car? We are traveling down from SF and will be @ Laguna Beach or Dana Point prior to getting there. La Jolla just seems too far outside the city, right?
I would agree, the Marriott Marina is great, and a great location. You are also close to the light rail system. We got a nice upgrade to a suite when we stayed. Marriott Coronado was not that impressive to me, but then it was raining that weekend. I would also highly recommend the Marriott Dana Point. La Jolla is "outside" San Diego but still relativly close. I was not impressed with the Marriott La Jolla.
