Nice amenities, close proximity to several great restaurants and bars in downtown San Diego and the Gaslamp District. I'd recommend NOT staying on the west or the south side, due to noise from Patrick's

My review is tempered by my feeling unwell during our visit. We did not get out to do much in San Diego, but the hotel room was an excellent place to rest and read and we enjoyed our visit. The location was perfect, the shower was weird and hot water was short.

The Keating has an excellent location. The bed was so comfortable. The room was very nice and modern. Loved the shower. Enjoyed the sandals that came with the room. Everything was great and would love to come back.

Everything about the Keating was great: amenities, room, etc. but the location is awful since there's a nightclub on the first floor that is way too loud into the early morning hours. Proximity to the conference center and restaurants is great, but proximity to loud city features is also very nearby.

Overall ; not a fan . Not user friendly . Doubt we will ever be back . Oh and the water was turned off 2 times. Check in time way to late in the day for travelers especially . Poor design/privacy in BR .!!!

First thing we had an issue with is the noise, its been mentioned in other reviews and it seems like it is all because of old glass in the rooms. you can hear outside noise as if the window were open. Also the gym is a joke. Now the good points, Service was amazing from check in to check out.... More

If you want a hotel in the middle of EVERYTHING, Keating is the spot! Great rooms, great crew! Love that the rooms are modern, clean, and beds are super comfortable! PLUS great food and shopping is right outside your front door!

Spent one night here-- it has a great location- steps away from the Gaslamp District.. Staff was amazing but overall disappointed with my experience. The place is trendy-- pictures look much better on the web but the room wasn't practical.. There's a fancy coffee maker in the room but couldn't get it to work, the lighting in the bathroom is...

First of all this hotel is pretty over priced. Have stayed at Hotel Indigo, Hotel Solamar, Marriott Gaslamp, Hard Rock and Omni in San Diego and all were miles in front of this place. If you want a decent night sleep, this is NOT your place. Music pumps in from the streets at all hours of the morning. And I... More
