As any new homeowner, obsessed for the past year with House Hunters, the magnificence of this building totally blew me away. Just the awesome, original wood, marble, tile... just awesome. As any exhausted, vacationing father of three boys under 6 years of age, I would have gladly traded the incredible beauty of this property for a new, firm mattress. Seriously.... More

No complaints about the hotel at all. Hotel staff was friendly and very helpful. They saved me some money by contacting a rental car company to tell them what I needed and that I was walking over to pick up a car. We only needed a rental car for one day. The hotel is in a great location which allowed... More

My husband & I recently spent three nights at the Gaslamp Plaza & Suites in San Diego. Location is great ....you can walk just about everywhere. Room was quite lovely. Front desk help were extremely helpful....especially Mary who is very knowledgeable, extremely helpful & accommodating. We would definitely go back and would highly recommend this hotel.

Beautiful old hotel with a beautiful view of the city from the top floor. Breakfast consisted of toast or bagels…..was disappointed in that plus Parking was $30 a night AND bar across the street with loud laughter and dishes breaking at 2 in the morning.

Excellent location. Friendly staff. Upgraded without asking. Rooftop breakfast is excellent. Bed comfortable, clean and very spacious. The breakfast provided on the rooftop was a good way to meet other travellers and compare notes.

The location of this hotel was perfect--we walked everywhere. We booked through booking.com and got very good rates in the mid two-hundred dollar range. Compared to what we pay for this type of this type in New York City or San Francisco, we felt like we hit the jackpot. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. We thought the room... More

Beautiful renovated classic hotel. I was assigned the showcase suite (booked thru Expedia). So we loved every minute. Free rooftop breakfast was great. Valet parking was $32, but local parking garage was $20/nite and $12/day (8-5pm) anyway. Photos were accurate, I'm a photographer, so know this: when you walk into the lobby from bright sunlight, the beautiful white marble and... More

We have been staying at this hotel for years now and it remains our favorite because of the location. Everything is within walking distance (ball park, museums, nightclubs, bars). The rates are a little high in my opinion since the hotel isn't the "newest" but overall it is always a great time there. Extremely friendly staff, especially Shawn who always... More

The location in the Gaslamp Quarter was outstanding, nice sights, restaurants and shopping within an easy walk from the hotel. The room was fairly spacious, a nice living room area. One great feature is the open air rooftop breakfast area, a great view of San Diego, the complementary breakfast food was good as well.the bed was comfortable and we were... More
