Since this chic and modern hotel sprouted up near Petco Park in 2009, it's been a hit with baseball fans, dog lovers, and especially the environmentally conscious—this is the city's first LEED-certified hotel, with green features such as in-room recycling and a 4,000-square-foot garden on the roof. Rooms offers floor-to-ceiling windows, hardwood floors, and spacious bathrooms with Aveda products and glass-enclosed showers with teak benches. One of the venue's best features is Level 9, a rooftop lounge nine floors up with a fire pit, specialty cocktails, and, when the Padres are playing, views of the on-field action. Another rare perk: There's no additional charge for pets, and the friendly staff welcomes them like four-legged guests.
