What it's like

Each of the hotel's 105 guest rooms and suites offers stunning views of San Diego Bay, Point Loma, or the downtown skyline. Take your morning coffee while watching the boats and aquatic wildlife before heading out for a day in the city. The Bay Club Hotel calls Shelter Island home. Far enough away from the hustle-and-bustle of downtown to relax, yet close enough to all the attractions, you get the best of both worlds.

Independent spirit

Home to some of the largest guest rooms on Shelter Island.
