The hotel was nice and the decor was great. It needs maybe a check out line or maybe the receipts slipped under the door. I left with ever seeing a bill because of the check in line. Also, getting a cab from the hotel wasn't easy. There wasnt anyone there to help, so maybe a cab lane. I ended up... More

We stayed here as a family in July 2014. The customer service of the hotel staff was above par. The hotel is centrally located downtown in the midst of the Gas Lamp district and within walking distance to a number of must see and do events/sights. While in town we caught a San Diego Padres game which was a 3... More

The place was a typical Hard Rock Hotel, clean and nice rooms though the pool was small. The location was hard to beat though, close to Gas Lamp and the Petco Park so plenty to walk to nearby. The staff was not memorable and check in seemed to take longer than it should.

Wanted to have a unique stay in downtown San Diego and got it. Great location, friendly staff and special hotel. Loved the rooftop bar. Great rock memorabilia. Don't know if you could do it without us Brits. First choice for next visit to SD.

It was fun. We had a great time Next time I will have to stay a bit longer. Although I was under the impression there was to be a hot tub and there was just a shower :(, Other than that it was fine. Thanks

Stayed there last week for a conference. Love the hotel and the staff was great. My only complaint is that the doors seem to be paper thin because I could hear every hall conversation and every door open and shut. Overall I would stay there again for the rate I paid which was about 30% below their normal price.

The Hotel room was very comfortable. Located close to hight scale hotels and convention center. however price is higher compare to those. Pool is open to everyone that paid xxx amount of money. Not clear boundaries when outside parties are performed at hotel pool or Green section. The room and the location is Good,but overpriced for the overall experience. next... More

The hotel is well appointed and the front desk staff couldn't have been nicer. Generally the place has that edgy rock décor that puts you in a festive mood. If you are attending a conference, going to a ball game, or visiting the Gas Lamp District, it is a perfect location. The bad is that we had issues with our... More
