Great location to the convention center, water and shops. The restaurants in the hotel are excellent. They also have great happy hour specials. Didn't get a chance to leverage the pool but that was another great looking area.

It was the perfect location for your Christmas Vacation. Rooms are very big specially because we have two teenagers. We borrowed their bikes and it was great. I don't remember eating there other than getting starbuks which doesn't really count. The gym was very nice and the pool was amazing. We had very nice weather so we had the pool... More

Great hotel! The location was fantastic! I loved being able to talk to all of the bars and restaurants in the gaslamp. The staff was fantastic and so friendly. One of the guys even gave me a free espresso before I left for a meeting the evening I stayed. I would definitely stay here again.

I only have two negatives, as everything else was great. 1) I found the workout center lacking in free weights, and the dumbbell’s only went up to 50#s; not that big a deal for most. 2) My room was on the 7th floor, and facing 5th Ave. The noise from outside was crazy. I swear slept with the window open.... More

Great location in the gas lamp district. The rooms are beautiful. They're like mini suites. When you enter the room, there's a decent size living room with couches and chairs and there's a dressing area with your bathroom and then you have your private bedroom decorated in modern and memorabilia décor. There are two lounges on the premises: One on... More

Upon checking into the hotel mid-day, we were told that our room was ready and that we did not have to wait given that the hotel was not fully booked. When we got to our floor, we were shocked at the construction underway on the room directly beside ours (11th floor on November 26th, 2014). The hallway direct in front... More

We are typically not Hard Rock "groupies," but my family booked here because of the great rate and excellent location. I checked out every other 4-star in San Diego, and nothing else came close (for BOTH rate AND location). I know dark rooms are trendy, I just don't understand why. Our rooms were clean and large, but the design seemed... More

Great location in the beginning of gaslamp for its price. I wish they gave more options as add one to the rooms but the all access pass was a good addition if any. The parking was easily accessible anit is right across the street for $15 a day it is well worth it. An overall pleasant experience! I'd stay there... More
