Cortez Hill Real Estate Guide

The most quaint and peaceful district

Named after the historic El Cortez Hotel, this district is one of San Diego’s oldest and most distinguished residential neighborhoods in downtown San Diego. It is located right in between the East Village District and Little Italy District. Due to its elevation and the steep, hilly streets it often reminds of the streets of San Francisco.

Availability of shops and restaurants is quite limited in Cortez Hill. However there are a few shops like a hair salon, a florist, a coffee shop, yoga studio and a convenience store. There are also a few hotels and motels in the area.
