Great spot! – I am not sure what the other people on here are taling about. I was there two nights in a row and had a great time. The security was great and the bartenders top notch. The made a great martini. Of course the prices were a little high, it is ROOFTOP BAR, IN A HOTEL, DOWNTOWN. However, it was worth it. The view was great and we got some great pictures. I would definately recommend this place.
Altitude Bar, should be called Attitude Bar – The most overrated bar in the US...really.
The 'superb' San Diego view is not even that good unless you are watching baseball or interested in looking into the surrounding apartments.
The obnoxious bouncers on the front door are jobsworths, who are constantly pushing through customers as though on government business, and the barmen are entirely disinterested in any form of hospitality...This supposedly 'top' bar, does not even offer a drinks menu, so customers are left to guess available drinks and their prices.
Furthermore there is insufficient seating, and the DJ could do with a little education beyond Jurassic 5's greatest hits. Not worth the two block walk. Tower 23, Pacific Beach - a much better bet!
Great view of Game - We Got overcharged. – I went with a group of friends to have a few drinks. We all thought the bill was rather expensive giving what we ordered. After looking at the bill we found out we got overcharged $20. My friend called multiple times but they denied him a refund. He told me he spoke to Jeff Burges the dir of operations and the name of the manger is Jim Durbin. They told him they investigated and we were wrong. Investigated? How crazy is that. It's $20 out of hundreds spent. I guess the Marriot motto is 'the customer is always wrong". The place is way to expensive anyway. Not impressed.
Not recommended in my opinion. – For a high-end hotel there is little to like about this bar. Can't get food up there. Have to order room service. The beer was warm and expensive. The sitting area is for VIP only. You need to fight to get a table. If you want a nice view, go to the Hyatt. If you want a nice bar to relax and talk with friends do not go here. Just can't recommend.
i loved altitude! – I absolutely LOVED altitude and will be going back again very soon. It was my first time there and I was VERY impressed. I went 4th of july weekend and was expecting it to be way over packed. But it was perfect. The view is spectacular, the drinks were a little expensive but that is typical for down town. The music was awesome and the bartender was very friendly... even though he had a long line he still took time to introduce himself to myself and my date! 5 stars for altitude!!
Terrible. Pretentious. Expensive. Rude. (But the view is great) – This is my first review and its not a good one. Obviously I did not like the place. I went with 3 other friends and we all found it very pricey, overrated and the staff was very rude. With so many choices in downtown San Diego, they really should care about their customers. To top it off, when my buddy checked his credit card a the next day, they added $20 to the bill. After calling them and bitching, they removed this charge. I bet they get away with that a lot of the time.
A great view! – I have lived in San Diego for 5 years and just went there a couple weekends ago! The view is great, the drinks ARE NOT! Too expensive and the bartender didn't even make my drink right. If you don't know what is in something, ASK! Don't just throw whatever in it! Great view so I say go just order something easy for their bartenders!
Great time! – The first time I went to Altitude I was in town for the Dodgers/Padres series. It was alot of fun. We met so many people from LA and from San Diego. The drinks are a little pricey but if your staying at the hotel I suggest you drink before in your room and go after. Also if staying in the hotel you get to cut in front of everyone in line. The crowd was a little on the older side but still great fun.
great view, expensive drinks – i tried to go here last saturday but they open at 5pm. And when i tried to go there after Stingaree at 1am, they were closed too. I've been here before, maybe a year ago, and it's a great place to hangout. a little small, expensive drinks, but worth the trip because of the view.
Great view – Drinks are, in fact, pricey, but the view is spectacular. We actually caught the final inning of a Padres game.
