Avoid high valet parking costs of $40.00!! There is a self parking garage right behind the hotel for only $15.00!! Room was larger than expected, only complaints were the shower lever was kinda loose and leaked a little, and I forgot my pj's in a drawer and they wanted to charge us $15.00 to ship it back after all the...

A great location right in the heart of San Diego in the Gaslamp Quater and 10 minutes walk from Seaport Village. The hotel is a very modern and sleek hotel, fantastic foyer entrance with a bar, shops and American Diner restaurant inside the hotel. The rooms are modern, stylish, bright and comfortable - great overhead showers in the bathrooms! A... More

Great location in the gas lamp district, close to everything. Several places to eat within walking distance and right across the street from the convention center. Room had fully stocked bar with snacks as well.

They totally look after you. All the rooms are amazing. I had a king suite, which came with a Free Fender Guitar and amp to use while I stayed there. It is located right in the Gas Lamp district. Everything was right there.

Me & my girlfriend spent 3 nights here. It was a really nice hotel and great location. The King Suite room was awesome. Loads of space and just some cool features. Would stay here again if we return to San Diego

It was our first time staying at the hard rock and Conner definitely made us feel welcomed. We asked him for some dinner suggestions and he gladly went above and beyond to help us find a place. Conner was very friendly and extremely professional. Once we got up to our room we couldn't believe how beautiful it was. Thanks to... More

Excellent hotel, with great service, near everything I wanted to do. Great service all around. I was in town for business and never had dull moment after work was over. Very good night life, including the roof-top bar at the hotel.

Stayed at the Hard Rock for a conference. Location is outstanding. Rooms are very nice, large, clean and nice. Customer service at the hotel is second to none. The cars are nice as well. Float is okay, but 207 is off the hook on Friday nights.

Some negatives from my stay were the prices at Mary Jane's a restaurant in the hotel...charged almost $9.00 for two sodas. The mattress was horrible. Some positives from my stay was that the air conditioner temp was adjustable and not fixed like most hotels are doing now these days. Nobu restaurant in the hotel was awesome.
