We stayed here for the past week and it was really great. The rooms are comfortable, the beds were awesome and the rock vibe of the property was fun. Loved the rain shower heads in the large shower enclosure and the amenities. One drawback for me was that there is no in-room coffee machine. Coffee is free until 9:00 but... More

the hotel was nice, however there was NO valet parking. I waited 30 minutes in the parking area and no one showed up. it was at 10PM I had to park myself and carrying the luggage to the hotel was inconvenient.

Overall I enjoyed my stay at the Hard Rock very much. The biggest complaint I have is that the hotel is noisy! There is construction going on in the hotel and they are not doing a very good job of preventing the noise from traveling throughout the hotel. The food at the bars was quite good, especially the pitas and... More

Great rooms. Very nice bed and good, friendly service. Marry Jane serves delicious breakfast and free coffee in the morning. Excellent location for fun but not to crowded unless theres pool party going on.

Of course it is neat to have the hard rock experience with the music theme, but the underlying factors did not disappoint. Staff was great, Room was in great shape, bed an pillows were comfortable. There was no let down.

I stayed here with my wife and had a first class experience. Location is perfect for everything San Diego. Gaslamp district is right down stairs. Lots and lots of bars and restaurants just walking and even stumbling distance. Convention center is right across the street. Petco park is 1 block way. Rooms were VERY nice and staff was accommodating. Not... More

I'm not sure what exactly I expected, but I know I was surprised by how comfortable the hotel was. beautiful photos throughout the hotel were an endless source of interest and appeal. while I did not take advantage of the free use of a Fender Stratocaster (!), the room (a mini-suite) was lovely and the bed and pillows were extremely...

-overall great experience and I will return, as well as recommend to friends A few areas of improvement: The "all access pass" is great on paper but we had no luck reserving a bicycle or guitar for the 4 days of our stay due to them all being in use. Kind of a bummer. The hot water situation needs to... More
