One night stay for a convention. Conveniently located next to the convention center and gas lamp district. I thought the Mary Jane restaurant was a little expensive, $15 for eggs and bacon... Valet and check in was prompt and professional. All areas were very clean and lots of posters and memorabilia to look at. I did not go to Nobu's... More

Stayed here for a week to recover from foot surgery. Staff was very helpful, and there were plenty of places to go within a 2 block radius when I was able to get out. Now I want to go back after foot has healed to take advantage of the perks offered by the hotel, and explore even more of the... More

I stayed at the hardrock San Diego late August and everything was great. That is until I almost layed down on dirty pillow. The pillow itself had a stain and hair in which I rather not guess where both of them came from. I did not complain to the front desk rather I inspected all other pillows and bed sheets... More

Nice room and location in hotel with view. We were a family staying one night and felt a few of the items in the in-room bar were inappropriate for minors to see. Enjoyed seeing all the rock memorabilia on the walls throughout the hotel.

The location, people, energy of the Hard Rock Hotel never disappoints! People were nice and accommodating through the entire process. Will def have to stay again. I really want to have he guitars sent up to the room. Unfortunately we did not have time to request for them because we were having such a great time in downtown SD

Party like a rock star...but only if you have a rock star's money to play with. If you have no desire to party, or hang out by the pool on a weekend, the Hard Rock is a 5 Star hotel. Super hip and stylish, nicely appointed rooms, comfortable beds, dual head rain showers, courteous staff, cool rock and roll memorabilia... More

We were at first a little worried about our hotel selection as the demographic of visible guests was a bit 'spring break' and we were traveling with our 12 year old daughters. But we were very pleasantly surprised by the service and attention to detail at each and every turn. Whoever does the hiring is a genius. A+ Great Weekend.

I've stayed in Hard rock many times, but this was the first time I stayed at one of the rock star suites. I enjoyed the extra perks to staying at a suite. The Royalty Lounge was great. They practically have an open bar for the guest. I was greeted with a bottle of chilled champagne and a plate of chocolate... More
