San Diego is not only blessed by a benign Pacific climate but a handsome historic property, The Sofia Hotel. Hear all about the 211-room property at 8p EDT Thursday, August 8, when assistant general manager John MacLean visits TRAVEL ITCH RADIO as a guest of Dan Schlossberg and Annita Stokes Thomas. Learn why the hotel, opened in 1926 as the Pickwick, once offered a room-and-a-half for two-and-a-half and still promises a room type for every request and need. A member of Historic Hotels of America, the Sofia is a short walk from the rail and streetcar hub, the waterfront, Petco Park, and the Gaslamp District.
