2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Arrived by car with three bags but as soon I wasn't interested in paying the ridiculous 45+ dollars for valet they wouldn't touch the bags to help and I had to do it all myself. Then the 'all included pass' which is some lame sort of idea of backstage pass turns out not to be included at all and is... More

I really like the Gaslamp District of San Diego and thus had to stay there finally . Hard Rock Hotel was great and I recommend it highly because the Hotel is fun and as close to a Las Vegas feel as you can get in San Diego . Lots of noise from partiers on all floors but that was the... More

Was staying a my another hotel that looked really nice online. Long story short, it was very filthy and not the same as the online pics. Needed to get out of there and did a last minute search and found the Hard Rock hotel. What a difference! It was a life saver. We were able to relax and sleep well... More

The staff was so friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and in good condition. My in room safe didn't work but I am sure they would have fixed it if I had asked. The meeting services were very nice, the food was good and the venue appropriate for our large meeting. Someone must have spilled something outside the elevators... More

I liked the hotel. The room they put me in was on the front side of the hotel. This side faces the trolley which comes by about every 10 minutes. The noise made it hard to sleep. I notified the front desk and they were good, and put me in an upgraded room on the other side where I couldn't... More

The hote had great service. The only downfall was that there was no bathtub for our toddler, only a shower in the room. Great location and easily able to walk to attractions. Would definitely come back again if we were in the area.

The railroad crossing ding dongs were a bit noisy in the middle of the night. they woke me up a few times. No problem, the nice pillows solved the issue. Restaurant and fourth floor pool with bar and cabanas were outstanding and lots of fun! All the staff had a refreshing young smiling attitudes.

Hotels decor is modern, rooms were modern, great looking hotel. Service was great. Valet parking were charging $47/day (wow), however they did discount it to $23. Looking forward to staying here again. The only downside was there must have been a smoker previously in our room and we had asked numerous times to remove the cigarette remnants and attempt to...

HRH SD, totally rad, totally fun. The guys at Rock Royalty treated us like ROCKSTARS, for real. We never longed for anything. It's clean, hip, centrally located and the rooms are sweet. The only thing I wish I had was a new liver for each trip 😄

I have stayed here several times and never had a bad time. The crew here in San Diego go way out of their way to make your stay great. Staff is way cool and most accommodating. The food and drink places get thumbs up.
