Staff members we interacted with were pleasant, polite and very helpful. We ordered late night room service, Chicken Strips with Sauces and Fries, both were OK, not exceptional. Our room was on the 10th floor, near the corner close to an intersection. During the day we could hear people hanging out street side and the train. During the night we... More

The Hard Rock hotel chain is just my type, great style and hip clientele. Hubby and I hung out here for an evening, mostly at the Bar 207 that is attached to the hotel. The hotel staff was able to get us into the front of the line without waiting. This is my 4th or 5th different location I've visited... More

I did a site to the Hard Rock at the end of Nov 2014, I valet parked my car and was told by my contact at the hotel to let the valet know that I was there to see them. The Valet Rob Alcala was who I dealt with at the front drive and he handled my car and the... More

We love staying here. It is actually the only place we stay when we come to San Diego. It is located right in the heart of the Gaslamp District with bars, restaurants, and plenty of shops. The hotel is clean, service is awesome (esp. Antonio) and just a fun vibe! Mary Jane's diner is amazing for breakfast too!

They were doing construction while we were there on vacation which made our stay less than relaxing. They stated they sent us a letter but we never received that letter. Then we had a few charges on our bill that we did not make during our stay. After a lengthy phone call, they did refund a bit of our money,... More

Perfect location to enjoy San Diego and near the airport for easy back and forth. Great for business or leisure travelers. Check-in and Check-out service was fast and friendly. There is parking across the street for $1/hour or $15 overnight, so if you don't want to pay for valet, you have options. There is a great little diner in the... More

I loved the hotel, the staff were very friendly and helpful. It certainly made me want to come back. When we got to check in the front desk asked what kind of music we liked, and when we got to the room, low and behold that type of music was playing! I was a nice touch. The room we had... More

Stayed here during multiple trips to San Diego. Excellent location and best value. This time we were fortunate enough to book under a deal for free valet and $25 food credit. That's a 65 dollar value on a 125 dollar room, you do the math...can't be beat. Even without that deal, the King suites are amazing (great size), service is... More
