We went to the Padres Baseball game and choose the Hard Rock to stay as it was close to Petco Stadium. We were told it is a family friendly hotel. ThehHotel is very inappropriate for children. The pool is full of bachelor/bachelorette parties and singles looking for a good time. Lots of alcohol, inappropriate behavior by adults, no place for... More

Excellent hotel, perfect location right at the entrance to the Gaslamp district. Rooms are extremely hip - mine looked out over the Padres stadium. The only reason I'm not giving it a five is because I could smell cigarette smoke from air vent at night, and no in-room coffee/tea service. Other than that, the staff was amazing and very accommodating.... More

When I arrived for a business trip I found the decode fun and exciting. I loved the room. Had a nice suite overlooking 5th street. Hotel was clean. The pool area is open to the public all the time which made it interesting and less relaxing. During the week things were calm. However, on Friday I was surprised by the... More

Excellent location. Friendly staff. Took advantage of the free bikes for a pleasant and easy afternoon of sightseeing. An airport shuttle would've been nice. Also, the pool had "reserved" signs on most of the cabanas and lounges. Apparently, that was to keep non-guests (e.g. hostel kids) from taking the place over. Unless you ask the pool/bar staff, you'd think there... More

The room was very clean, and the support staff polite and efficient. The front desk staff were another matter. They seemed overwhelmed and short staffed. We never did see a person at the information desk to ask for directions, restaurant tips, etc. there was always a line at the check in, check out desk. The rooms were noisy and it... More

Room was quiet and clean. Bed was so soft. Sweet grass products smelled wonderful. Conference rooms and food were excellent. Location next to Gas Lamp District and PetCo Park was excellent. Hotel staff was courteous and friendly. Restaurant in hotel was convenient. Bars in hotel were interesting.

Well cleaned facility. I wish you guys posted the prices of the mini bar somewhere. I would've thought twice before opening 2 bottles of water that cost me 26 dollars. I'd rather have a glass of scotch for that price.

This place "Rocks" as a small boutique hotel with excellent service and wonderful night life, especially at the Float! All the staff were very attentive and helpful including the security staff. The Nobu restaurant offers excellent Japanese fusion food - all appetizers were distinctive in taste offering a wonderful culinary experience.

Difficult to find coffee in the morning. Also, there was a trivial item broken in my room, which was immediately fixed, so I suspect that the maintenance guy was fishing for tips. Otherwise, everything else was first rate.
