Overview

Outdoor Pool at Handlery HotelBar at Handlery Hotel

Built in 1954, the Handlery Hotel has managed to stay updated and modern without losing its classic 1950s charm. From the towering Italian cypresses and perfectly manicured hedges surrounding the property to the open stained-wood ceilings and tufted Chesterfield chairs in the lobby to the glittering chandeliers and high glass ceilings in the foyer, everything about the hotel’s initial appearance feels like a step back in time, but in all the right ways. When guests choose the Handlery Hotel for their San Diego vacation, they know they’re in for a warm, relaxing and upscale stay.

The Handlery Hotel is conveniently located off Interstate 8 in Hotel Circle. It’s just a 10-minute drive from the San Diego International Airport, downtown San Diego and all the best there is to see and do in the area. Many attractions, such as the Riverwalk Golf Club and Driving Range, Balboa Park and San Diego Zoo are even closer, at less than five miles away.

Local Tips
San Diego Zoo Offer
Two adult Zoo tickets for the world-famous San Diego Zoo come with your room, plus 10% off at Postcards American Bistro.

The hotel, with its prime location along one of San Diego’s main freeways and between the other two main thoroughfares — the I-5 and I-15 — is ideal for families and vacationers who plan to visit San Diego’s main attractions. However, that doesn’t mean it's lacking in things for guests to do.

The Handlery — a part of a growing number of pet-friendly hotels in San Diego — is dedicated to providing each and every guest a personalized experience. It does this through many of its modern amenities. The hotel’s heated outdoor pool offers the ideal sanctuary in or around which visitors can relax and unwind. The pool is surrounded by bamboo style lounge chairs, palm trees and umbrellas, all of which serve to make the area feel like a tropical oasis.

The fitness center, with its advanced training equipment, makes it easy for guests to keep up with their fitness regimes while away from home. The business center offers internet-equipped workstations and complimentary printers. Guests also have access to free Wi-Fi, dry cleaning and laundering services and rental cars.

Guests of The Handlery can also book an appointment at one of the on-site salons, Glo Hair Studio and AHN Skin & Beauty. Glo Hair Studio offers hair cutting and styling services, while the treatments at AHN Skin & Beauty include eyelash extensions, makeup application, brow shaping, waxing, facials and massages.

The Handlery has been family owned and operated since Harry Handlery founded the business in 1928. The four decades of Handlerys that have handled business operations have done so with a commitment to offering guests a casually elegant retreat just minutes away from the city’s best attractions.
