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

I really enjoyed my stay at the Keaton. I was upgraded to a Jr Suite, and it was amazing. In addition, my associate, who was staying there for an extended stay, was also upgraded. We both really enjoyed ourselves during the stay. Thank you Keating Hotel! Beautiful.

My boyfriend and I stayed here last week and loved it! Everyone working at the hotel was very sweet and welcoming. The front "lobby" area is small but cozy. We were greeted with a smile every time we walked through! Our room was clean and very comfortable. It is not like a typical hotel room, very stylish loft/industrial feeling, and... More

The hotel was 90's industrial modern, clean efficient. Amazing location in the gaslight district could walk everywhere. The weird thing is that the shower is in the sleeping area all glass.... nor privacy! There are some weird light curtains you can pull the really hide nothing.You feel like you are putting on a show for anyone else who is in... More

Keating Hotel far exceeded our expectations. Hotel staff all are so nice, and rooms are fantastic. Location was great since we were attending baseball game at Petco. Lots of great restaurants close by as well.

We stayed at the Keating and spent the extra coin for their large Imperiale One Bedroom Suite and were blown away. Room was awesome, location was great. There were some hiccups in service along the way, but each time the Concierge went out of his way to not only fix whatever problem arose, but to go above and beyond to... More

This was my first time to stay at the Keating, and I say first because it won't be my last! I prefer boutique hotels, and as this one was very reasonably priced and in a good location, I chose it over the larger hotels. Before my arrival the staff were very helpful, and upon arriving I was treated warmly and... More

Hilari: Thank you, thank you for the great five star review! We are so pleased to hear that you had so much fun during your visit with us in the Gaslamp District.

This is a fun boutique hotel, super funky and cool. The staff was wonderful, so helpful and kind, easy going and smart. They made a long business trip feel like home. The only caveat is that the gum wasn't available nor movies on demand. So check in on those things if they matter to you. Regardless, the people made it... More

This was probably one of the coolest hotels I've stayed at, looks wise. It's in a great location central to the Gaslamp Quarter, in a very old building. However old the building may be, the decor is modern all the way. The hotel is designed by the same firm that designs for Maserati and Ferrari, and it definitely shows. Everything... More
