It is perfectly located. It is noisy. That's because it is perfectly located. Use ear plugs - I did and it worked. Great value. Especially the breakfast. It costs $0, which in my book is great value. Iconic architecture and fittings so you can't expect a hermetically sealed and quiet hotel. I enjoyed the ambience. Nice people. Very spacious rooms.... More

We recently purchased a timeshare here and came to watch a couple of ballgames. The location in the Gaslamp is terrific-we didn't have a car(parking is $40/night) since everything is walkable. The hotel is clean, pleasant and all you need if your main goal is a nice place to lay your head. It is somewhat dated which is part of... More

Great rooms, unbelievable roof top views of the city, and friendly staff. I chose this place to propose to my girlfriend because of the roof top views. The staff was extremely helpful and accommodating for setting up hours before we would return at night. The room was very spacious. I would recommend this place for anyone looking to enjoy either...

Other than the breakfast (which had an incredible view at least and you could walk half a block for some chicken and waffles) this place was pretty much perfect. Merry at the front desk was enthusiastic and helpful and had me and my girlfriend laughing. Room was clean and spacious, we walked everywhere. Bed wasn't the most comfortable, but not... More

This hotel was great. It was very central in the Gaslamp district. The hidden gem of this hotel was their roof top terrace. The view from here was amazing in the morning and evening. The free breakfast which came with the hotel was plentiful and delicious. The room was clean and spacious. The only down side was the valet parking... More

This convenient hotel in the middle of the Gaslamp quarter offers spacious rooms above (of all things) a popular Fondue restaurant. My room was a quite comfortable suite, as were all my colleagues', and arranged as a suite with a little kitchenette that had a microwave and fridge. The road is a bit noisy due to all the revellers but... More

Excellent location within walking distance to everything, including tourist attractions, the trolley, shopping, buses and the beach. Hotel is very quaint, room was small but clean. Staff are very knowledgeable, friendly and offer good travelling advice. They really know their city and make you feel right at home. Breakfast (included) on the roof top terrace was a bonus. We would... More

Great location, great accommodation. Right from the moment of check in we were happy as we were upgraded to a corner one bedroom suite. The hotel is right in the heart of the gaslamp quarter. We were lucky enough to arrive on a Sunday so Monday morning Merry provided us with a wonderful orientation on the roof top at breakfast... More

What a shame that this charming, well located property with large, comfortable rooms, a small kitchenette and friendly staff falls so short of a comfortable place to stay. Couple that with $30 a day to park your car and $11.95 a day for WiFi will lead me to suggest you can do better -- much better! Our annual Guys' Weekend... More

I was so pleasantly surprised and impressed by the Gaslamp Plaza Suites. In reading some reviews prior to my visit, I was a little nervous based on some negative experiences that people have had. I am pleased to report that I had a fabulous 3 night stay in this lovely hotel! The staff is amazingly friendly and determined to accommodate... More
