The suite rooms are... More

I booked this trip expecting a first class hotel. What I found was far from it. The entry was full of construction equipment. When I reached the 12th floor lobby, I experienced more chaos. The room was clean but average. When I prepared to go to the spa...surprise, it was not constructed nor the pool. I was told to go... More

The "free internet" only applies to one device per room. The "digital programming" on the one flat screen TV only applies to two channels. The pool is under repair. The microwave countertop area is dirty. Apparently the parking charges are a ripoff but that is yet to be confirmed (charged by calendar day). For the price there are better values... More

All the rooms are suites having a bedroom separated by french doors. My room had a pull out sofa, coffee table, arm chair, wet bar with a locked fridge! and a desk.There were two televisions in the suite as well. Although the layout is nice the carpeting was really moldy smelling and had staining everywhere. The bathroom was very clean... More

Wow. Where to begin...well how about parking? $28 a calendar day, so as another poster mentioned, they are screwing you for an extra day no matter what. And, you have to weave 11 stories up, just to then take an elevator to the 12th floor where they are located. Crazy! Now, the lobby. Cool vibe. Very young staff wearing t-shirts... More

I stayed at Declan for one night and my stay was terrible from the minute I walked into the lobby! First off, I'm from Asian descendent but was born in North America. I speak fluent English but the man at the front desk talked to me like I was ignorant. And don't get me started on his "quiet but not... More

I usually like to stay at the Gaslamp Hilton, but since the price for the Declan was about $100 less per night ($157 plus taxes), I thought I'd give it a shot. Bad move. The narrow spiral to the 11th floor parking made me dizzy. The pool apparently has been in repair since May and it is now August. They... More

My girlfriend and I were waiting all summer for our trip in August that we took last week. We saved up for a couple of months for this trip, but were a little disappointed with this hotel.
