I stayed here on business and it was fantastic. I love the upbeat music and swankiness of the hotel. It was in the middle of Gaslamp convenient to shopping and restaurants. I will definitely be staying here again.

Great hotel in the middle of where I needed to be. I've previously attended conferences at the Hard Rock Hotel, but this was my first time staying there. Beautiful room. Friendly staff. Overall great experience.

I enjoyed the stay, as I was in SD for a conference, and not only was the location prime at the entrance to gas-lamp, but the staff was accommodating, and the rooms exceptional, I would definitely stay again.

Stayed here with some friends for my 21st birthday and it was definately a great choice!! Booked it while it was on a flash sale so I was able to get a queen suite for $202 before tax which isn't bad at all considering its location and size. The waterfall shower is also a plus :-) gave it 4 stars... More

Great location to the convention center, water and shops. The restaurants in the hotel are excellent. They also have great happy hour specials. Didn't get a chance to leverage the pool but that was another great looking area.

It was the perfect location for your Christmas Vacation. Rooms are very big specially because we have two teenagers. We borrowed their bikes and it was great. I don't remember eating there other than getting starbuks which doesn't really count. The gym was very nice and the pool was amazing. We had very nice weather so we had the pool... More

Great hotel! The location was fantastic! I loved being able to talk to all of the bars and restaurants in the gaslamp. The staff was fantastic and so friendly. One of the guys even gave me a free espresso before I left for a meeting the evening I stayed. I would definitely stay here again.
