I booked this stay in downtown for my birthday. It seemed like a great stay-cation spot! Upon checking in at 7 pm, I was not warmly greeted but rather with Cindy who coldly asked for a credit card and ID. She then informed me that the room I booked was not available because the site that I booked through (easytobook.com)... More

Single-pane windows were being replaced by double-pane while we were there. I imagine this will help a lot with reducing street noise in the rooms. Room and bed were great. Found parking for $15/day at a ramp at 614 Mission just a few blocks from the hotel. This is a fun and unique place to stay with great restaurants/bars/city life... More

This hotel is perfect. It has a total of 35 rooms. Besides the occasional door shutting you hardly hear any chaos in the hallways. The room was absolutely cool. Modern style inside the room & hallways is very eye catching. The bad was sooo comfortable & warm. I can't wait to go back.

Was upgraded to a suite. It was clean and very comfortable. The decor was quite eclectic. Including a two person jacuzzi in the living room. Staff was very courteous. No restaurant however there are plenty of choices nearby.

Good Morning William - Thank you for your great review! I have to agree that The Keating is a unique property with amenities, such as the in suite jacuzzis, that you won't find at other properties. Hope you can return soon!! More

Loved the rooms and hotel, great value for what you get. Only issue is the bars below rock all night and the noise requires ear plugs the hotel provides to block out. Overall the location is perfect and the rooms and staff are great.

if you want a Gaslamp location you can't do much better for the price, the Gym that they have an affiliation with was second to none, and the best experience of our stay in the hotel, oh the coffee machines are ok my wife liked it, but you can't base an entire ideal on a coffee machine, or can you?...

We stayed at the Keating on a Thursday night, well aware of it's location in the Gaslamp. In fact that's why we selected it. We were in a 4th floor suite that had a very nice industrial loft décor with all the amenities. The bed was super comfortable, on par with a Westin Heavenly Bed. The problem is we didn't... More

Good Afternoon James - First, allow me to apologize for how this situation was handled at the desk. Being an older hotel our single pane windows do not always block out all of the noise from the Gaslamp. We are currently in the process of installing brand new dual pane windows that will eliminate those noise issues. However, my main... More

If you're traveling with more than one person, you'll need a suite. The "stanza" rooms are strictly for couples. The rooms have an open floor plan which means the only private place is the water closet. Shower, bath all open to the main room.
