In 1910, San Diego’s population was just 39,578. Balboa Park landscaping had begun, and San Diego Bay was home port to the world’s tuna fleet. While ashore, many Genoese and Sicilian fishermen lived in the blocks overlooking the water, and soon referred to them as “Little Italy.” One of the community’s favorite gathering places was a small hotel on the corner of State and Grape, now known as the Little Italy Inn. This beautiful Inn was built in 1910 and was a favorite of many fishermen. A lot has changed since 1910. The ownership of the property changed in 2004 and underwent a major renovation, yet preserved the architecture and history. The Inn has definitely captured the warmth and character of the original property as much as possible. They accomplished the goal, and hope that you will agree when you come experience the special beauty of the Inn.
Each of the Inn’s twenty-three rooms is individually decorated–so every time you stay, you may if you wish, experience a varied ambience and request a different room. The rooms are appointed with fine bath products, as well as premium bottled water and luxury bedding ensembles. A continental breakfast–and more, is served daily from 7:00 am to 10:00 am. If you are an especially early bird, they are more than happy to accommodate, upon request. The Hotel Vyvant in San Diego’s Little Italy will ensure that you have a lovely, warm and intimate lodging experience while you are in this beautiful area of southern California.
