Centrally located with the San Diego Trolley directly behind the hotel, exploring is very
easy. The hotel is close to many landmark attractions including the world famous
San Diego Zoo, beautiful Balboa Park and museums, Sea World, beaches, historic Old
Town, the Gaslamp Quarter, Petco Park, world class shopping, and fine dining.

Over the years one request kept coming up and that was to locate the dealers to a
single floor. Wait until you see our enormous ballroom! Massive upgrades are underway
including bold new carpeting, beautiful wood flooring, new lighting, new furnishings, a
coffee bar and much more. It’s already gorgeous and it will all be completed in July, well
ahead of our miniatures show!

Over the next few months we will be updating you with interesting pictures and
information so don’t get left out. Add the show to your calendar now!

If you have any questions, please email us:

I could do great things!

    I was wondering if anyone could help me, I just aquired a doll house, fully furnished from a rummage sale in Newport Beach, on the back of one of the pieces was a sticker ‘N.A.M.E” Houseparty Showcase 1977, San Diego by Carlson Miniatures. I was curious of its history and value? Its seems to be very well taken care of.

      Isn’t that something! Each year the National Association of Miniature Enthusiasts hosts a convention for its members. Miniaturists meet for workshops, view exhibits and gather for banquets. There are auctions, sales and many many gifts. I can ask around about 1977, in the meantime, can you send a photo to – I don’t know if I can give you a value, but I may be able to send you in the right direction.

    My daughter received a Victorian dollhouse with dolls and furniture as a gift, but is no longer interested in it. We don’t have room to store it and wondered if you could direct us as to where to sell it. Thanks.
