My wife and I split our trip to SD into 2 days here, two days on Mission Beach and 2 days at La Jolla. It was a great way to explore the city. I ran from different locations every morning, and then we explored what SD had to offer during the day. Perfect location to explore downtown restaurants, SD bay,... More

This was a very unique hotel. We were greeted with Champagne, which we thought was a very nice touch. It is not a "cookie cutter" hotel and we enjoyed the robes, which were the colors of the Keating, and also the free flip flops, as the floors were cement. The staff was very helpful, and always printed out directions to... More

We enjoyed our stay because of the location. We were walking distance to the main strip. I wish the hotel had a menu to order food and beverages for an early night in or mornings just hanging around. Rooms were unique and to my liking!

I travel to SD 4 days out of the week from LA and I've stayed in almost every hotel in the county. The Keating is hands down my favorite place to stay. Historically preserved building with ultra modern amenities. I've been told that the owner is a big fan of Ferrari and hired the designers to design this hotels interiors.... More

Room and people are great, great location in relation to Gaslamp bars and restaurants. Comfortable bed, and I wish I had their shower in my own house. However, beware of $40/night parking fee, it's San Diego not Manhattan.

Nice 'boutique' hotel with special design. Ideal for a night out on the town with many amenities in the room such as stereo system and espresso machine. On a Friday or Saturday you can hear several rooms pre-gaming already before the night out.

The staff went out of their way to make my stay a pleasure. They made dinning suggestions, helped with directions and making taxi arrangements. This is a beautiful historic hotel, there is some noise from the street but the location is well worth it.

I like the hotel location and the amentis it offers but the hotel didn't my expectations on my last business trip. Lack of professionalism I spent really long time in check in and the bath tub in the room wasn't working.

We stayed for 2 nights over the weekend starting from Friday night. The area was buzzing with activity and the hotel is located next to Horton Plaza which makes it convenient for shopping. The hotel and room was Italian-chic with lots of red velvet, silver and white. Shower was largely open to the room which didn't bother us at all.... More
