I will start with the positive aspects of our stay at the Hard Rock Hotel. The location is great, right at the beginning of the Gaslamp District, across from the Convention Center and a short walk to the Seaport Village. The staff was helpful and friendly. We were in San Diego for a business convention. The hotel is really for... More

Had a great stay and the hotel is really cool. One problem though; you have lyrics from songs all around the hotel, but the one by the front desk id wrong. You have, "Welcome My Friends to the Show that Never Ends" but it should be, "Welcome BACK My Friends to the Show that Never Ends." I bet you did... More

The staff was amazing! Everyone was courteous and had wonderful customer service. The room was clean and spacious. The bed was so comfy! I love the location. We were able to walk everywhere. The location is steps away from all the great restaurants and shops. Highly recommended!!

Very modern, clean and comfortable. Great service at the reception desk and everywhere, I was hosted by Rick G. I think he has an excellent service attitude, he solved all my questions and gave me the best attention ever, I recommend you to ask for him, I think he is the manager.

Room was clean and tidy, we were upgraded to a Suite. Free bike rental was superb and we enjoyed them for the whole day. We were on the 8th floor and there was sadly room noise from both the Street and other guests returning late to their rooms (2:30am). Food and beverages were pricey in the hotel, but the great...

I was impressed when I first stepped into the lobby to check in. All of the staff I encountered were friend and attentive, and the room was clean and modern. But it was the uniques touches that got my attention. At check-in, I was asked to select what music I wanted playing when I walked in the room for the... More

My spouse had a conference across the street so I ventured around downtown with my one year old twins. The location of the hotel is amazing! It is next to lots of great food and activities. The staff was also friendly and very attentive. I had to call a few times and they always came within minutes. The rooms were... More

You'd think you were in Vegas when you walk into this hotel. It has a energetic vibe and you want to be there. Sad I was only in town for 1 night. Great views of the ballpark right across the street and close to great bars and tasty food.

My wife and I love to get away for the weekend without our son from time to time. We usually visit Palm Springs, but to celebrate my birthday, we chose the Hard Rock Hotel San Diego. Wow! We made the right decision. From the welcoming staff, to the fair prices, to the unreal accommodations, we couldn't have been happier. The... More
