Loved the venue, location and the staff! The music-themed displays were great and always hearing music being played everywhere you go in the hotel was awesome! If you are a music lover this is the place to stay!

Amazing service from the Hard Rock staff! Nobu was delicious & conveniently located in the lobby. Rooms are comfy, pool is small but the lounge area is as comfy as the rooms. Other than fact everything was a bit overpriced we had a wonderful experience.

The hotel was located in the heart of the Gas Lamp district. It was easy to walk to most venues. The room was spacious and clean. Overall it was a pleasant stay. The pool was rather small for such a large hotel.

I love this hotel: its concept, location right across the street from the convention center and right in the Gaslamp Quarter District at a walking distance from great restaurants. It's small and the décor is fantastic. Due to its location it can get noisy at night but it didn't bother me at all.

Our experience has been very good even if we, my wife and me, stay over there only 3 nights. Everything was good starting from the valet service, and the position is in the best part of the town, Gaslamp. The negative aspect has been a lot of teenagers making noise during the night and someone was disturbing

The vibe is definitely more play than work! The inside is decorated with awesome music memorabilia! Like notes written by Elvis and Jimi Hendrix, outfits worm by Madonna, Gwen Stefani, and so many other awesome items! The room had an awesome modern clean feel to it and the bathroom had a spa vibe and the shower had to shower heads!... More

I had an amazing time at the Hard Rock, the staff was nice and my friends loved the room and view! The location is so close to Gaslamp and the trolley which made it quick to get around. The options for parking either valet or the garage right behind the hotel made it easy to drop our bags off and... More

We travel to SD a few times a year and so does my boss. Brady Murray is always there to help at the drop of a hat. Cannot say enough good things about him. Even though we had some billing issues (there was some items left in the mini bar from previous guest and we got charged) they resolved them... More
