We travel to SD a few times a year and so does my boss. Brady Murray is always there to help at the drop of a hat. Cannot say enough good things about him. Even though we had some billing issues (there was some items left in the mini bar from previous guest and we got charged) they resolved them... More

If you have the opportunity to visit San Diego stay at the Hard Rock and hope & pray Antonia Guzman is working! He has been so helpful in helping us find our way through the Gaslamp area. He takes time to listen to what you're looking for and makes great suggestions for places to eat or where to have fun.

Great visit on my second trip. even though my first trip had some flaws...I gave them another chance, and I am glad I did. A great hotel and the best location in San Diego. Great rooms, great service, wonderful pool scene. I cant say enough about this place. Every San Diego trip for me will always be at this hotel... More

Every staff member I came into contact with was friendly, courteously, helpful when needed and they all asked if I was enjoying my stay. Great location, central to a lot activities. Will definitely stay here again when visiting San Diego.

Overall we were very happy. The hall noise was loud and woke us up a few times after 12. We were surprised on check out by the valet fee. We were unaware we were being charged. It would have been nice to have been aware of this so we could have opted to park elsewhere.

Had a great time this past weekend at the Hard Rock San Diego. The goods definitely out weigh the bass making at an overall great experience! Room and view was great other then a few minor things that weren't cleaned when we first checked in. Location was awesome for everything we wanted to do,which was a lot! Only two complaints... More

The Hard Rock hotel is absolutely exceptional. I stayed here for a 21st birthday celebration, and as my boyfriend and I arrived in our rooms hip hop music was already playing. We received passes for 2 to the top notch pool party, and the intervention, both expensive, high end events.

Hotel was in good location and nicely appointed. My only complaint was no in room coffee maker. We travel a lot and sometimes I do have to request a coffee maker but have never been not provided one upon request. They do have complimentary coffee in a downstairs public area but we prefer to have coffee in the privacy of... More

Great location, right by the ball park and by a popular street for bars and restaurants. Great room, not noisy and a great pool experience too, although it's only small so i wouldn't like to be there if it was busy.

Right in the middle of all the fun - San Diego Hard Rock Hotel is in the Gaslamp District and less than 2 blocks to Petco Field. We upgraded our room to a suite with Living room and outdoor balcony. Staff and service was very friendly. Plenty of dining options on premises and nearby. Parking is a little pricy at... More
