The Cortez Hill Neighborhood was named after the famous El Cortez Hotel, which has been restored and converted into condominiums. Located on the highest plateau of downtown, many condos in this neighborhood have views that include: Balboa Park, San Diego Bay, The Pacific Ocean and the urban scene below. Victorian-style homes populate the area, along with newer condominiums and apartments. The hill’s topography separates it from downtown’s hustle, yet its closeness makes it a very desirable address for those who want to live on the cusp of an active urban center. For professionals living downtown, yet working in other parts of the county, this neighborhood is within close proximity to all major freeway on ramps.
