Hotel at a Glance: The Dana on Mission Bay

Surrounded by Mission Bay's nearly 30 miles of shoreline, The Dana on Mission Bay is well-situated for water recreation. Guests can rent a kayak or waverunner onsite, or take the hotel shuttle to see killer whales and acrobatic dolphins at SeaWorld San Diego, roughly a mile away. The hotel's accommodations are split between two different locations: some view rooms look out on the Mission Bay marina, and deluxe bay-view rooms are footsteps from the bay.

  • Savor seafood such as pan-seared sea scallops amid views of the bay at the onsite Firefly Restaurant and Bar, or sandwiches and exotic cocktails at The Blue Pearl.
  • Infinity pool overlooking Mission Bay offers poolside dining; tropical pool is surrounded by palm trees
  • Rent a bike to explore Mission Bay's picturesque boardwalk.
  • Nearby attractions include Belmont Park, Mission Beach, the San Diego Zoo, and the historical Gaslamp Quarter.

San Diego, California: Historical Attractions and Electric Nightlife in Southern California

San Diego's sunny, comfortably warm weather and 70 miles of coastline have long attracted vacationing out-of-towners, but the city's inland scene is no slouch, either. The Gaslamp Quarter is arguably one of the trendiest listings on the National Register of Historic Places. The area forms both the historic center of town and a hub of San Diego nightlife, with nearly 100 Victorian-era buildings now occupied by high-end boutiques, jewelers, and gourmet restaurants.

During the day, a stroll through iconic Balboa Park takes you past 17 separate museums, as well as the world-famous and much beloved San Diego Zoo. There's also the vibrant Spanish Village Art Center, a living gallery where local artists continuously produce pottery, handblown glass, and oil paintings for sale.

Farther north, in Old Town—site of the first European settlement in California—shops in Mission-style stucco buildings sell colorful wrestling masks, woven baskets, and maracas. Nearby stands The Whaley House Museum, dubbed one of the Most Terrifying Places in America by the Travel Channel. Ghosts of former residents are said to inhabit the rooms, which are filled with Victorian furniture, eerie dolls, and squeegees for ectoplasm cleanup.
