This historic district was named after its feature attraction, the El Cortez Hotel. Located on a hill, the Cortez District overlooks picturesque downtown San Diego, Balboa Park and the San Diego Bay. It is home to appealing sidewalk shops and cafes, churches, and a variety of residential options. In this intimate neighborhood, you find modern high-rise condominiums, sophisticated mid-level complexes, and the Victorian influence of San Diego’s first settlers. Cortez Hill’s location is convenient for both pedestrians and those using transportation, given its all-encompassing atmosphere and close proximity to the I-5 freeway. Full of character, history and style, Cortez Hill offers all the advantages to city living.
