Room was clean and well appointed. Restaurants in hotel were very good. The bar was awesome and was "lively" to say the least. This hotel is perfect location to go explore the Gaslamp district. Great experience!!!

I love the music theme wherever you go. Room decorations and furnishings were tops. Food was excellent, I would come back and stay if on personal trip. Finished the trip with a hosted event at your bar and it was a huge success.

Rooms were very nice and we go to gas lamp about 3 times a year but my wife and I usually stay at the W. The hard rock was awesome and will get the wife to change it up from time to time and stay at the rock. Great crew working, great rooms, and great location

Great location, beautiful rooms, and Float was really cool. My only complaint is the bathroom setup is awkward. At least for me. We would stay again and share our experience with others as well. Parking was very expensive $45.00 per day. Great having a Starbucks close and Gas Lamp all close. Overall a great stay.

This was by far one of the best experiences I've ever had with any hotel and go to Vegas once a month so that says a lot! We had a Rock-Star Suite with a balcony and had the best services. Even when we needed someone to fix the Audio System, they were so attentive and the manager, Kevin was always... More

I was in the DOCS course and stayed in your Hotel. The people busing tables looked stellar and their smiles were great. At every level of service, your entire staff is consistently 5 star. I will stay at the Hard Rock Hotel every time I visit San Diego!

I loved this place. From the checkin feeling very personable, to the valet who asked us what our plans were and gave us some of his favorite things to do in the city to how to get there. This is a beautiful hotel and we will definitely stay again. Everything was fresh and clean!
