The Handlery Hotel and Resort is located near San Diego's most popular attractions; however, the Handlery atmosphere is relaxing and peaceful, a world separate from the city. The Handlery boasts lovely accommodations as well as state-of-the-art health and fitness facilities and award-winning dining. Three heated pools, eight tennis courts and a driving range are all available close to the Handlery Hotel. If you care to explore, the Fashion Valley Mall is adjacent to the resort while historic Old Town and the San Diego Zoo are within minutes of the hotel.
