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?...

Best sleep ever at a hotel! Wished we could've figured out the espresso machine, duh! Great location, close to everything and the cafe downstairs was superb! Good recommendation by The Keating! We will be back!

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.

This hotel is very contemporary and a perfect setting for any type of celebration. I stayed at one of the suites and it was super spaceous and comfortable. We also had huge windows with an amazing view of the gaslamp area .

I highly recommend this hotel. I had read a few revies prior to staying and the only negative comments made were about the staff and/or the noise of traffic and people below. The staff was phenomenal: sweet and attentive so no complaints there. As far as noise goes, I agree at peak hours it can be a bit raucous but... More

Having much experience with the big chain hotels this was a very nice surprise. Overall I liked the relaxed feel of the room and easy access to the general Gas Lamp District. Could use a window update to dampen street noise.

Hi Cheryl - We are so happy that you appreciated the Boutique feel that The Keating offers. Our small size allows us to provide one of a kind personalized service. Also, in an effort to go green as well as alleviate street noise The Keating is in fact adding brand new dual pane windows. We are very excited! Thank you... More

First things first - do not stay here if you need sleep or are not into the scene in the area. This hotel embodies the downtown area of San Diego - loud, friendly, and full of character. We stayed here on a Friday night and picked up the room around 5:30 PM. Total out the door was $141 for a... More
