i love every part of the hotel. the front desk, elevator, stairs, lobby, my sleeping room and so on!! definitely would come back to stay at this hotel! the only thing i wish was a little bit more quiet atmosphere, though it was noisy cause of the event of St.Patrick's Day maybe Lol

From the moment we walked up to enquire about a room Shelton was exceptional...he made us feel like this is where we wanted to stay and guess what the price was right for us. The hotel tick all the boxes for us, clean, funky and one of the best boutique hotels we have stayed in. Love San Diego and especially... More

Simple luxury. Enjoyed the proseco at check-in and the VERY open floor plan of the room/ bathroom. (Not great if you're not a couple.) Great location - tons of restaurants and shopping. Parking is $40 per day.

Thank you so much for reviewing your recent experience at The Keating! We are so glad you felt the experience was simple luxury - starting with the prosecco pour upon arrival. The rooms are VERY open as you said - in designing the hotel, Pininfarina was excited to break down those barriers of warm and wet zones and give the... More

Hotel is nice, rooms are trendy with exposed brick etc. Staff were plesant and prompt and the location is perfect. The big downside is when you show up they tell you it's $40 for parking. The hotel is competitively priced but when you add in the parking it makes it on the higher end in their market. You can pay... More

From the moment we walked in until the moment we left our stay was nothing short of amazing. Andy and Shelton greeted us at the door with complimentary Prosecco and Andy proceeded to assist us to our room and show us around and how to use everything. The room was gorgeous and ultra modern with an amazing view of gas... More

I was looking for something different than your average hotel room for a night away with my hubby and this was definitely the right choice. The room was great and the staff were very helpful. They pay attention to the little details that can make a big impact.

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
