After having a problem with reservation. The front desk took care of me. Had to call twice. But at the end. They fixed the mistake with my reservation. From arrival to departure had a great time. A little disappointed that they didn't have DJ playing down stairs club.

We had a few snafus at the hotel, but all of the staff was awesome and quick to help. Good hotel, but not worth the price I paid. The room keys are kind of a nightmare, they are demagnetized by cell phones and any other credit card so we went through quite a few in the few nights we were... More

Great location, walking distance to anything I sought white tablecloth restaurants, bars, clubs, casual spots galore. Petco is a block away, breakfast joints, quick mart, etc. it's all there in the Gaslamp District on 5th

I just wanted to compliment Carly at the front desk for being absolutely exceptional. She really helped me in accomplishing my vision of suprising my girl friend for her birthday, she was extremely helpful and for filled both expectations of hospitality and service and even going above and beyond to a second level service!

This is a great hotel. I had no issues besides some neighbors partying late into the night. I could hear them coming back at 3 am. The parking was a pain but there is a garage across the street which was reasonably priced. This is a great hotel for young bachelors looking to party and have a good time. I... More

The hotel amenities are nice and our suite was very nice! The big disappointment was the variety of loud noises all hours of the night. Between all night parties and the relentless train track bells, we didn't get much sleep. If you're looking for Vegas on a smaller scale; this is it!!

Great hotel, close to the baseball park and Gaslamp. Had no problems finding anything close by whether that be shops or restaurants, right across the street from the convention centre, its a little far from Little Italy to walk but Uber can help out with that. Fitness centre was a bit small though but only a problem if you wanna... More

Stayed at the Hard Rock last week for a business convention and I must say, the entire staff was extremely accommodating and I could not say enough about this property. The rooms was so spacious and so clean!!! Additionally, the restaurants inside the building, 207 & Nobu both had amazing food!!!
