Shell Vacations Acquires Iconic San Diego Hotel

Shell Vacations has announced the addition of the iconic Park Manor Suites to its portfolio of San Diego timeshares. As part of the acquisition, the company also announced it will officially change the name to Inn at the Park in an effort to maintain brand recognition with other similar properties within the Shell Vacations collection. Inn at the Park is also the name of one of the hotel’s restaurants.

“After more than five years of searching in the San Diego area, we are delighted to have found our dream property. The ambiance, location and timeless appeal of Inn at the Park are ideal for our family of customers both current and future,” says Sheldon H. Ginsburg, Chairman of Shell Vacations LLC.

“We are very pleased and excited to announce the acquisition and addition of this historic hotel into the Shell Vacations’ portfolio. Inn at the Park will be a signature location for our Company and we look forward to serving its customers and guests with the quality and service our Company is known for,” says Tracy L. Sherles, President and COO of Shell Vacations LLC.

With a reputation for superior service, neo-renaissance architecture and home-away-from-home amenities, the Inn at the Park is an ideal addition to the Shell Vacations family of hotels and resorts that are designed to accommodate leisure vacations, business trips and everything in between.

The classic hotel features a combination of studio, one- and two-bedroom suites, ranging in size from 525 to 1,000 square feet, with 9-foot ceilings and large sage windows with postcard-picture views of the city below. Some units have balconies for enjoying the famed San Diego weather.

Designed by Frank P. Allen in the Italian Renaissance style, the hotel is closely tied to San Diego civic history. The red brick building was originally built as an apartment complex to house the architect and his family. Frank P. Allen is also known for his design of the stately Cabrillo Bridge. In 1991 it was named a Historic Site of San Diego. Keeping the original design footprint of the suites, the hotel also boasts one of the most grand and detailed lobbies in the city.

The historic hotel is situated steps away from the world famous Balboa Park and is the premier, all-suite boutique hotel in the city offering easy access to the world-renowned San Diego Zoo, the Old Globe Theatre, 15 museums, beautiful gardens and the city’s best performing arts venues.
