We had a great 5 day stay. Hotel is clean, rooms are large and comfortable. Nice view of downtown, even did see part of the ocean. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Located in safe and convenient area of downtown. We didn't require parking but I hear it is overpriced.

I purchased this room on Priceline and thought I was getting a good deal at $95.00. At that price, I overpaid. After booking on Priceline, I read some mixed reviews, so I kind of knew what to expect, but it was worse. Just a couple of highlights, yes the parking is crazy and expensive if you self park. The worse... More

Just returned from a weekend at the Declan Suites and I’m not really sure how to best describe my stay. If you are looking for a location away from the craziness of the Petco Park/Gaslamp District areas, the Declan is ideal. It’s far enough away for those looking for a cheaper room rate but also a very easy walk or... More

I started here late March for 2 nights: Friday and Saturday for a conference. The Sheraton Marina was all booked, so they reserved a block for us to stay here. The whole time, I was wishing I was at the Sheraton instead. I paid $119/n without taxes. I also saw this on Livingsocial for $100. I'll start with the parking:... More

We had a nice suite on the 19th floor overlooking parts of the city! Expensive hotel and parking. We went during springbreak, some partying going on in the rooms but not bad, there was a lot of marijuana smell at nights.

We stayed at the Declan Suites after the Ragnar Relay race. We were excited to hit the jacuzzi and indoor pool after a lot of running. So to start it costs $35 to do valet. Of course you tip the attendants so we are looking at $45 to valet. This is not a smooth quick experience. If you are using... More

Our family of three (one 14 year old) just returned after a week's stay at Declan. You must have heard Location, Location, Location, and Declan just defines that for the "happening place" seekers. It is located downtown just on the outer fringe of the Gas Lamp district which is littered with the shops, nicest restaurants and bars catering to every... More

I was somewhat reluctant to book this hotel after reading some of the reviews. I will say it is the strangest "set up" to access this hotel as you need to drive up a corkscrew driveway to the 11th floor to park and then take an elevator to the 12th floor to check in. We apparently came up on the... More

Situated on top of the hill on the corner of A and 8th the Declan is conveniently located. The 12th floor lobby is nice and trendy. The Room was nice, clean and quiet. Free wifi was nice. I will repeat. It's not perfect but met my needs.

This hotel has the most incredibly rude front desk people I have ever seen. It was also difficult to determine between the female staff and the prostitutes moving freely into the brothel(sorry I meant hotel!) How any hotel could approve of desk staff wearing skin tight dresses that clearly display female underwear and 9 inch heels hmmmmm ? Well the... More
