I stayed at The Keating this past Saturday and Sunday night. The experience was great from start to finish. My mom and I were in town to the run a race and wanted somewhere fun to stay with good proximity to the race so we could walk to the start line. When we arrived we were promptly greeted by a... More

Superb acommodations in a unique modernistic hotel. Every turn presented very curious design features. The staff went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable, truly professional but never in a haughty or distant way. It was clear they enjoyed their work and each other, they showed great respect toward one another. The noise, well that is another story. That... More

The Keating Hotel was first class in every way, second only to the professional and efficient staff there. All of our needs were met and exceeded our expectations from the moment we arrived. We were upgraded to a suite that was perfect for our two night stay! From the shower and amenities to the sheets on the bed, The Keating... More

Nice hotel, friendly staff, good location... But none of it makes up for the fact that the room windows are so poor that they might as not be there. Spent the entire night listening to the sound of the club and partners next door.... Followed by the road construction crews in early morning. No amount of nice makes up for... More

I stayed here for 5 nights the last week in January 2013. It is a unique and charming hotel, however two things conspired to ruin my stay here. First, the noise. I was on the fourth and highest floor and still could not drown out the noise from the live band in the bar at the base of the hotel... More

If I were staying here for a pleasure trip to stay out late drinking, this is the place to stay. But if you're coming here for business DON'T stay here. The hotel is located in walking distance close to everything in the district. And there is plenty to see, do, eat and drink there. The hotel was clean, interesting design... More

Let me start with the positive, location is great. Other than that this hotel is awful. I have stayed in hotels in 22 different countries and putting up pictures of race cars and half naked women does not make a place "nice" or "classy". It costs $32 a night to park here. The noise is overwhelming with the bars and... More

I love the design of this hotel. The building is in the historic Gaslamp District, all bars and restaurants are just a few footsteps from your door. As soon as you walk into your room, you enter another world. Bare concrete floors, a vast shower area and a super comfortable bed give it an edgy, very trendy touch. I do... More
