Staff is friendly although sometimes there is no enough of them at the reception desk to help you and you have to wait in line. Location is convenient just across the confernece center. Loved the complimentary coffee feature not seen often. Management could work on keeping rooms/bathrooms cleaner. Hate to see hair and similar things left over from the previous... More

Dated rooms with experienced furniture, grungy wallpaper and shiny chromed fittings with flaky edges. Overused carpeting with a hint of well worn denim aroma. Overall, not unlike an old but reliable Marshall amp.

I went to Hard Rock for a work confernence. And I felt like VIP from the moment I pulled up. I stay in a lot of hotels, and even other Hard Rocks, but the staff at this one really made the difference. Only one complaint, the bathroom lighting was horrible for make up.

The Hard Rock in San Diego was an excellent experience. From the perfume enriched modern designed lobby to the fact that they had Starbucks. I would recommend this hotel for business and/or pleasure. Sound Physicians!! :)

A 5 day stay for a conference, handy location across the road and nicely situated for the gaslamp area's profusion of bars and restaurants as well as easy transport options. Very comfy room, some noise from the nearby train track but nothing out of the ordinary. Very friendly staff on check-in, throughout stay and departure. Good decor with a Hard... More
