Hidden Gems in San Diego: The Britt Scripps Inn

August 11, 2006 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Britt Scripps Inn

Located in the heart of San Diego, just steps from Balboa Park, the beaches, and the Gaslamp District, the Britt Scripps Inn is one of the finest examples of Victorian architecture in the country. The authentically restored Inn oozes romance, Victorian splendor, and contemporary luxury. Each of the nine elaborately appointed guest rooms has been lovingly restored to reflect the craftsmanship and grandeur of the turn-of-the-century. The Queen Ann style inn is bedecked with a wealth of period antiques, rugs, hand-carved oak staircase, wrap-around porch, and a two-storey original stained-glass window wall. The rooms were created with comfort in mind, and don't skimp on the modern technology, including flat screen LCD TVs, high speed Internet access, heated towel racks, and the very finest in linens-- 1,000 thread count sheets. Complimentary full American breakfast is served each morning and the end of day sees a complimentary artisan cheese and wine gathering in the parlor.
