I had a great stay. The ammennities in the room are high tech, the location is wonderful, the staff is amazing. Just remember, it's in the gas lamp district, so street noise...especially on weekends...can be a challenge. Good place to stay if you plan to paint the town. I was on business, but it was great to have everything so... More

Great hotel! But know, there are a few things that could deter some people from staying here. It's right downtown in the GasLamp Quarter. On weekends the noise doesn't stop until 4am. If you are sharing a room with someone, you better know them very well. As the shower is in the room and open (with no door). The toilet... More

I grew up in San Diego and have never stayed in a hotel in the area before. We decided to take an extra little Valentine's Day weekend during a family visit to the area. The Keating was terrific -- really cool local history on display, totally unique design, wonderful staff. We'll definitely be back someday.

The hotel was clean, updated, and we loved its contemporary design elements. My only real complaint was that the water for the shower never got as warm as we would like, but the robes were a nice way to offset being a bit chilly after the shower and the thermostat system worked great. The location is outstanding and all in... More

Andy - Thank you for your five star review! We are so glad that you enjoyed our hotel and the updated design elements. While the building itself has been in the Gaslamp since 1890 (happy 125th to us!), the hotel's unveiling within the past decade was designed with the intention of bring contemporary design elements to a historically beautiful landmark....

The spa tub was broken and only compensated $20 for a $320 night room on Valentines Day! We asked for ice and it took forever, as did retrieving our car at checkout. Very loud and vibrating room from club below until 1am. Otherwise very nice.

Blair - Thank you for taking the time to review our property. I know our staff was looking forward to your arrival - celebrating both Valentine's Day and your husband's birthday - and wanted to go above and beyond to ensure you had a very romantic evening . While certain emergency maintenance situations can arise, we certainly never want it... More

Loved how it was literally close to everything including a lot of hotspots for the night life. Would highly recommend if you are looking into changing up from the usual hotel to a modern more sophisticated room and staff

Our five day stay was an excellent experience. Staff was very nice and helpful. Rooms are spacious and cozy. You gonna sleep well. Location is the key - in the middle of the downtown with easy access to almost all the major sightseeing places, restaurants and trolley. This is also an ideal place for those want to enjoy food and... More

Amenities are nice, especially the espresso machine and daily supply of chocolates. Nice and modern room, good shower. However, the room was quite noisy due to the adjacent Hard Rock Cafe with live music almost every night. Hotel is perfect if you want to enjoy the nightlife of the Gaslamp Quarter, but is less well suited for a business trip.

Dorine - Thank you for taking the time to review your experience at The Keating. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed our modern decor and amenities featured in the room. Nothing goes better with expresso than an assortment of petit fours each night! While being located in the heart of the Gaslamp does lend itself to the excitement... More
