Staye at Keating on business. OMNI Hotel, which hosted conference I attended was full, and I was fortunate to come across this gem of a hotel. Great character and charm in building, and the staff was extremely kind, friendly, and helpful. Location was great, too. This all made for a more enjoyable and memborable business trip.

The staff was very helpful. We arrived early, they offered bag check and phone call to let us know when the room was ready, 1 hour early. On our return we were greeted with a glass of Prosecco and our bags were already in the very clean room. Great weekend get away, Wonderful amenities. The shower was great, big fluffy... More

all the girls were wonderful and pleasant. I asked upon check in for dinner recommdations and was told several great options. We loved the complimentary chocolates brought to the room. I would definitely stay again. I might just include a rug and A little better lighting in the vanity restroom area. Thanks for the great service!

The Keating was fabulous, we found them on Hotels Tonight while extending our mini-moon another night. They exceeded our expectations, the room was awesome with a romantic shower. We had a bottle of prosecco waiting for us when we returned from dinner. They were fabulous!!

The rooms and service are excellent. The location very convenient, much more than locations closer to the SDCC. The coffee machine the best. The gym was down. I definitely will come back for a solo stay. Not for families.

Right in middle of gaslamp quarter. Best value we have found in years in CA. Totally modern with huge open bathroom areas. Staff was very accommodating and the room was spacious and was a wow. Huge oversized bed.

The Keating remains my favorite hotel in San Diego. It's location in the Gaslamp quarter can't be beat for access to public transportation and the Convention Center. The unique design and special amenities (Lavazza espresso machine in each room, yoga mat, cushy robe) add delight. While the penthouse rooms are spacious and airy, some are noisier than others, depending on... More

So overall it was a great place to stay. We ended up changing our room because the noise from the bar next door was excessively loud. In the first room I felt claustrophobic as windows were facing inside the hotel. Second room was better with windows facing the street and quiet since they moved us to the top floor with... More
