The Hotel room was very comfortable. Located close to hight scale hotels and convention center. however price is higher compare to those. Pool is open to everyone that paid xxx amount of money. Not clear boundaries when outside parties are performed at hotel pool or Green section. The room and the location is Good,but overpriced for the overall experience. next... More

The hotel is well appointed and the front desk staff couldn't have been nicer. Generally the place has that edgy rock décor that puts you in a festive mood. If you are attending a conference, going to a ball game, or visiting the Gas Lamp District, it is a perfect location. The bad is that we had issues with our... More

The Hard Rock Hotel was nice, but the bed was lower than most hotel beds. It is convenient to the Gaslamp District, Petco Park, and the trolley stop. If your room is near the elevator like mine was, it can be noisy when people come off the elevator arguing after a night of partying. The hotel staff is friendly. Mary... More

We stayed down at teh hard rock for one weekend, coming from la, and it was fun. The hotel is very fancy and there were a ton of bachelor and bachelorette parties going on (actually ran into to two separate friends who were there for those as well,) so that meant a lot of young people, which was cool. The... More

My friends and I went to Rock Spa on Sunday, July 20, 2014. I emailed Rock Spa last week and found that a Daily Pass could be purchased for $30. With the daily pass, you have access to the pool, spa amenities and fitness center. We were also told to call ahead and check to see if the pool will... More

this was my first time at a Hard Rock Hotel. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The staff was very friendly and cooperative. The rooms were very nice, however, I wish they left some room in the fridge for items they did not provide.
