Midway Museum. The Courtyard San Diego Gaslamp/Convention Center is also in close proximity to many of the best restaurants, shopping and attractions that San Diego has to offer.

Our guests want a room that has purpose and flexibility that enables a seamless transition between relaxing and working.
