The hotel is in a prime location. So many restaurants to choose from, the trolley/train right out the front door, and the Padres Stadium right next door. The rooms were clean and the staff is very friendly.

I lost an expensive item at the Hard Rock Hoel San Diego after a pleasant but uneventful stay for a conference. I did not realize the item was gone until after I had checked out. The staff went above and beyond to find the item (after initially no luck) and get it back to me. I checked out on a... More

After two nights of not getting to sleep until after 1:00 a.m., when the bar downstairs closed, I asked to be moved to another room. Which I was and, for my incovenenice, I was upgraded to a suite at no extra charge, which I thought was very nice of the hotel to do this. Upon checkout, I was told the... More

Extremely loud hotel until about 3am especially on weekend, Dont plan on sleeping until then. Late day room cleaning about 330pm caused us to rush a quick shower before night activity just to get room clean up and fresh towels. Charged for mini bar items we never used (water 25.00!) after we left and got the surprise update bill later,... More

After staying in La Jolla for a few days we decided to switch to Downtown the night before our flight. We decided to try your hotel for the first time. Fun, clean, great time!! So convient and easy. The pool was perfect for my teen daughter and the view of the room windows was hilarious!

Was in San Diego for a convention. Hard Rock was cheaper than the Marriott nearby but had read reviews that the hotel was very noisy so I was hesitant to book a room at Hard Rock. However, I am so happy we stayed at the Hard Rock! The hotel was clean, the staff was accommodating and the noise is only... More

Great hotel, good location. I wish they had complimentary breakfast. The window view was great. The hotel looked really good. I wish it had more to see. Although it did have some rock star displays, I wish there was more to it. The room was great. The bed was REALLY comfortable. I wish the hotel had more lighting, and more... More

This is a great location right in the heart of Gaslamp. Easy walking distance to restaurants, bars, shopping, etc. Nice, modern facility. Only problem we had when we stayed was that we were charged an "All Access" fee (whatever that means) of $23/day but were then told we could not access the Float bar/lounge near the pool because a private...

The hotel was beautiful, but the room could have used some attention. The floor area next to the shower was slanted slightly, and all of the water pooled in that area, so we had to wade through puddles getting in and out of the shower. The toilet made gurgling noises in the middle of the night. The music channels on... More

The hotel has an unusual and kind of futuristic design. Employees are very friendly and helpful. Rick (I hope I remember his name correctly) was a night shift employee who did not need to be reminded of the accommodations for disability. Instead of usual for other hotels question "do you need any accommodations?", he spared me from answering immediately accommodating... More
