A landmark Southern California resort hotel built in 1954 by founder Harry Handlery who had the foresight to offer families and business travellers a spacious San Diego hotel with a very special personal touch. The success of the hotel is a true reflection of good, honest hard work. Not only has the property got the luxuries you would expect from a top class hotel, but the family tradition remains strong; it is evident in the warmth and friendliness of service that creates a unique charm that sets it apart from other hotels and ensures guests return year after year. Another reason for the hotels popularity is the fantastic amenities and events on show. What could be better than relaxing with the family watching a movie - well how about watching a movie in the pool with a star-lit sky? With the Handlery's "dive-in movie" it happens most weekends throughout the summer. The Handlery is perfectly located just minutes from the city's best attractions and for extra convenience, guests are offered a complimentary shuttle service to the attractions.
