Hotel chains are as ubiquitous as big box stores. There’s Hilton, Hyatt, Westin, Ritz-Carlton, and the list goes on. But just because hotels have identical names doesn’t mean they have equivalent offerings. Properties in a single brand can be as different as siblings in a family. Some are sprawling resorts, while others are urban high rises. The video above and following comparisons profile the differences in San Diego Sheraton Hotels.

Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa
5480 Grand Pacific Drive
Carlsbad, CA 92008
(760) 827-2400

Guests young and old will love this 56-acre retreat located only three miles from the Pacific Ocean and directly beside LEGOLAND theme park. The kiddie playground has bestowed its LEGOLAND Bed & Brick Preferred Hotel moniker on this Sheraton for its partnership with the park. Guests use their room key to open a private gate entrance and purchase tickets at a small booth, sans waiting lines. Plastic blocks aren’t your thing? Then head to the adjacent Crossings Golf Course for 18 holes. Or unwind at the resorts Ocean Pearl Spa for an essential oil detoxifying massage. Then re-toxify with their complimentary glass of wine and artisan cheeses. (Room rates start at $169 per night.)

Sheraton Mission Valley San Diego
1433 Camino Del Rio South
San Diego, CA 92108
(619) 260-0111

The innocuous looking cement high-rise may go unnoticed were it not for the colorful flags flying above its entryway. Twelve floors numbered two through 14 (no 13th story for triskaidekaphobia reasons) accommodate 260 guestrooms overlooking Interstate 8. Accessibility is its strong point, with three freeways within a stones throw. It’s the closest Sheraton to Seaworld and Mission Beach. San Diego State University six miles east is a preferred vendor offering special rates to those in town to cheer on the Aztecs…or the visiting team. A friendly staff gets into the action, wearing SDSU tee shirts and chanting ra-ra-sis-boom-ba! (Room rates start at $119 per night.)

Four Points by Sheraton
8110 Aero Drive
San Diego, CA 92123
(858) 277-8888

Four Points hotels cater to business travelers and meeting planners. Both flock to this meticulously renovated oasis located near corporations and government industry. San Diego’s only Four Points dedicates itself to quality at an affordable price. A heated pool and nine hole golf course provide leisurely respites from endless conferences, while the fresh breakfast and lunch buffet at Citrus restaurant gives sustenance for a day of appointments. Complimentary shuttles transport within a six mile radius. Weekend entertainment runs the gamut from amateur boxing matches showcasing new talent, to quiet drinks in Skies Lounge, to comedy shows in the amphitheater. There’s something for everyone. (Room rates start at $98 per night.)

San Diego, CA 92101

Shoreline restaurant serves snacks, drinks and grilled favorites beside the pool. Harbor’s Edge dining room floor to ceil windows sport views of the crystalline inlet.
