Upon arrival I though uh-oh, we are going to be the oldest ones here. We were here for a wedding and found a great deal. But we weren't there were families of all ages there. Young and old alike. The rooms were spotless, comfortable and we enjoyed the dual head shower. I'd like to go back when we can relax... More

The AC in lots of the public rooms and our friends rooms just wasn't keeping up. I'm just glad ours was! The food was all AMAZING but some of the logistics with placement of food for workshops got completely in the way of other companies in workshops. Lots of complainants in both directions... us in their way, them in ours.

The hotel is nice and within walking distance of a lot of restaurants and shops and right on the trolley line. If you don't like bare bodies, don't check in on a Sunday during Intervention. The food at Mary Janes was tasty and fairly inexpensive.

Hotel is in great location, staff at all levels were courteous and helpful, room was clean and comfortable. Being at Gaslamp was convenient, although having Nobu in the restaurant might have even been better. My room had a view of Petco, which added some flare to the experience. I would return with family to see a game.

The Hard Rock Hotel San Diego is a great place to stay. I enjoyed most everything except the checking in and checking out part. We were part of a large business group attending a conference, and the wait time for checking in and out was very long. There were only 2 employees checking the group in. Other than that, the...
