Amazing beds, and amazing location however don't plan on enjoying either as you are so tired from the constant construction, bar noise, garbage trucks and street cleaners, even an afternoon nap is virtually impossible! Apparently there was a continental breakfast included which i didn't know about and bring your own toiletries as the ones provided are not good, if you... More

The linens were lovely but the street noise was unbearable. The decor is very industrial and unusual. You really need to like concrete. And red. It was just way too noisy. We cut our stay short and moved hotels.

The room has a doorbell - and odd people ringing it and visiting at random (a woman to tell us about the hi-tech stuff - which she didn't know about, another woman with a big of flip-flops and a man in a chef outfit bringing us unrequested coffee and Nutella (why?), a mirror over the shower (which turns on at...

Not worth the $ or the hype. It was the noisiest room we've ever stayed in (even compared to maradi gras in the French quarter)! There was no information about breakfast or the free bike usage available. Don't try to check in early - we had to wait til the 4:00 check-in.

Thank you for your feedback. I apologize about noise, we are located in the heart of the Gaslamp Quarter and we understand that it could be noisy at times. We are in the process of installing new windows at the hotel. The sample room has been completed and the rooms will be noise free by the summer. We pride ourself... More

My full experience was a memorable stay. From the time of check in, till check out was awesome. Staff is great, friendly and comforting. Definitely be back. The Keating is a great place in a great location. Walking distance from the malls, food places, etc.

If you cant sleep with some noise this hotel is probably not for you. It really is smack dab in the middle of the Gas Lamp District which does not shut down really until 2-2:30. They have sound systems and Ipod hook ups in every room. I usually just plug in my ipod put on my tunes and never notice... More

I have to say that the Keating hotel is a slice of heaven. The room are elegant in their simplicity, and it is a very quiet hotel. I stayed in the Penthouse and I could hear the sound of music from the surrounding area, though it was a distant, muffled din, and did not interfere with my sleep. This is... More

This was the LOUDEST room I've ever stayed in. I'm no teetotaler - I've stayed in New York, Vegas, and New Orleans - none came close to how noisy this room got. I was in 3E. On my first night I called downstairs and asked if there was a secret to drowning out the noise from the neighborhood. The very... More

We just spent a night at The Keating. We loved how modern the rooms were, but there is no sound isolation from outside or the club downstairs. We stayed on the second floor in room 2H. We didn't sleep until after 3am and then loud construction sounding noise started at 7am. As much as we loved the room, we would... More
