when we travel we prefer the in town experience rather than the resort experience. This property is in the heart of the entertainment district. The staff is excellent. Easy to deal with and they all welcomed us every day. We were upgraded from a studio to a 1 bedroom without even asking. They suggested a corner room overlooking 5th ave.... More

I stayed in a hotel unit, which was large enough for two people, you... More

Location is in the heart of the Gaslamp district. The facility is an older but well maintained building that provides a sense of history to your stay. Architecture and interior decor added to the feeling. The Gaslamp district is renowned for its restaurants, clubs and other entertainment venues so weekends can be busy and noisy. Parking is at a premium... More

We stayed a week. Overall the location can't be beat for everything Gaslamp. Staff member, Merry was an amazing wealth of tips on things to do downtown. She was very cheerful and helpful. In the room, the vents in the ceiling are dated and are directly above the bed and have large open gaps facing down. (A little creepy.) There... More

The Gaslamp Plaza Suites is on the edge of the Gaslamp district so everything is within walking distance. Lots of restaurants and bars. Busy on the weekends so start early. The room I had was very clean but long and narrow. No room to walk around the bed. Staff was great. Breakfast on the roof is nice but the food... More

The hotel was architecturally beautiful and they have done a pretty great job on keeping the place authentic to the period when it was built. I was sleeping on the sofa bed, it was pretty comfy. The view from my dad's and my room was beautiful. You could see the ocean when it was clear out. The rooftop brunch was... More

Dear Guest, I am very sorry that you were so bothered by the street noise while staying with us. Yes, we are located in the middle of the Gaslamp Quarter and street noise is unfortunately unavoidable.

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...
