My wife, our daugher, and me are visiting from Salt Lake City and so far our stay has been very pleasant. We were given a room in the third level when we signed in, but management was kind enough to give us another room in the 9th floor to minimize the noise for our 19 month-old daughter. The hotel is...

This is an old building with outstanding character and reasonably priced for it's location. The suites are comfortable and the interior of the building is beautiful with rich wood and marble. Located on 5th Ave. and E Street, the only drawback is the noise level from 5th Ave. businesses which lasts late into the night. Enjoyed our stay there and... More

Well this was a little gem. once and old bank, so every wall is marble, every door is oak and every handle is brass.... Lovely old world charm. The rooms are generous in size and comfortable, very clean, however the layout of some is a bit haphazard as it is a converted building. The beds are very comfortable and the... More

Just stayed here for 1 week. Staff was exceptional. Even had a fire alarm sound at 5:00 am. That was pretty interesting but it turned out to be a false alarm. The traveler in room 208 said he was taking a shower???? No one panic, just glad we were on the 2nd floor..did not have far to walk to get... More

I stayed here for 6 nights in October. I was in room 1003 so high up and away from the street noise , ( Saturday night was noisy but this is the Gaslamp quarter, so you must expect that.) the hotel is very close to everything downtown ,a very short walk to Horton Plaza. The room was large and had... More

I stayed here nov 1st in room 309, I had a corner suite so we could people watch from our room, that was very entertaining :) the room had a kitchen and living room area then a door that led to a small bedroom and restroom. I really liked the location and staff, we are definitely staying here again.

If you love night life shopping & great dining stay in the gas lamp district. Location was great but there are no amenities at this hotel. Rooms are small but nicely out fitted. If looking for a quiet room stay on the top floors. We were on the 2 nd floor & could hear the street party noise. I wore... More

We stayed at the Gaslamp Suites for a week over Halloween. Yep. That's crazy. Who knew San Diego had a Monster Bash! Fortunately, the San Diego police set up a Command Center right in front to keep things under control. Ok - besides that craziness. We stayed in 2 different rooms. The first had a king size bed and faced... More

Had a girl's night out downtown so the location was perfect! The one bedroom suite was wonderful! Very clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and the roof top continental breakfast wasn't bad. Also minimal street noise, which was a nice surprise. Only negative was the fan in our bedroom was very loud.

Stayed there in October and we loved it. Everything clean and comfortable. The building is so beautiful and the staff very nice. We were not disturbed by any noise from the street. We can highly recommend this hotel.
