Everything about this property is really nice. The rooms are superior, the linens excellent, the staff very helpful, and great location downtown. Unfortunately a young couple in the adjoining room had a loud verbal fight in the hallway at 4AM. It spoiled an otherwise excellent experience.

Champagne toast on arrival really set the tone! The staff was friendly, helpful and seemingly pleased to have us stay with them. Rooms were fun and unique, location was great for transportation, bars and restaurants and exploring the waterfront. We would definitely stay here again next time we go to San Diego. Staff recommended a great spot for pizza, the... More

Thank you for the five star review Michele! We are delighted you took part in our champagne toast upon arrival - CHEERS! - and that you enjoyed our staff's warm welcome.

Following my stay at this hotel, I was incorrectly charged for a host of mini bar items. After several discussions lasting several days with various front desk staff, someone finally acknowledged that it was in fact an oversight by housekeeping and that my account would be credited. Fast forward almost a week and the credit has still not been applied.... More

Good Afternoon - We apologize for the delay in receiving your funds. However, the funds were returned on November 30th. The hotel received your email on December 4th noting the error. That email was responded to on the same day. In the response we noted that the funds were returned on November 30th and that depending on the banking institution... More

This review is directed only at the deceptive process, and unscrupulous attitude of the management at this hotel. That is, we cannot comment on the rooms since we didn't get to stay. Briefly, we made a reservation months in advance for a specific room type (suite). It was paid for in advance. Acknowledgement and a confirmatory email from the hotel... More

Our visit at the Keating was excellent. It started with being met at the curb by gentleman who was very pleasant and got our luggage up to our room pronto. Then we got a pleasant reception at the front desk. Very helpful and truly glad to see us. We stayed in the Spa room. It didn't have a bath tub... More

Very poor experience jacuzzi wasn't working, ruined all plans for the birthday night. No candles in chandeliers. The only suggestion from the manager was to reimburse the difference between the standard room and jacuzzi room. But still the plans were ruined and then we wouldn't have stayed in the regular room. Will never return nor recommend the hotel to anyone.... More

My wife and I have stayed at this hotel twice now. The first time we stayed for our honeymoon. We returned here after a conference for a little more time in San Diego and loved it. Since our honeymoon they have installed double pane windows. This makes the rooms very quiet. We walked in and they were doing in construction... More

A quick get away before the holiday rush to downtown San Diego was great. What atmosphere: music, all types: dueling pianos and sing alongs. What a great selection of food: yummy burgers, soups, tacos, steaks, and fancy, fancy food for foodies. Gas Lamp district was a lot of fun. Great walking vacation: comfortable walking after dark. Seaport nearby. trolley get... More

I arrived from an early flight five hours before check-in time and stopped by only to ask if they could hold my luggage while I explored. I was told that my room would be ready in 30 minutes! This was by far the coolest hotel I've ever booked. The room was stunning. The staff could not have been more cheerful,... More

I've been wanting to stay here for years and when I finally got the chance I was disappointed. Our check in was delayed by over an hour from the standard 4pm check-in time. When we asked what the problem was everyone seemed to pass the blame onto someone else. We were offered a glass of champagne to accommodate our delay... More
