Baseball fans, it’s that’s time of year again! Book yourself a room at the Sofia Hotel so you can catch part of the San Diego Padres’ home-opener series this month.

Beginning Thursday, April 9th, the Pads face the San Francisco Giants in a four-game stretch at beloved landmark PETCO Park, which is just minutes away from the Sofia. From April 13th to the 15th, it’s the Padres at home vs. the Arizona Diamondbacks; then, the team squares off against one of its greatest rivals, the Los Angeles Dodgers, for three games on the 24th, 25th, and 26th.

The Padres Experience

Watching the Padres, who’ve been part of the fabric of San Diego since 1969, in action is a lot of fun. And PETCO Park, right on the edge of the Gaslamp Quarter, is an experience unto itself. This open-air ballpark opened 11 years ago and ranks among the country’s great baseball venues, with a design that really prioritizes the comfort and enjoyment of the spectators. The views of the city and San Diego Bay from your seat are almost as enthralling as the drama down on the baseball diamond. Take the kids to the “Park in the Park,” which includes a playground and a Little League field, and take a few swings or throw a few pitches yourself in the “Padres Power Alley.”

And given the heavenly weather San Diego offers during baseball season, Padres fans and devotees of rival teams alike treasure watching their favorite sport at PETCO Park.
