“Everything you need, in an outstanding location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013 via mobile

I just stayed at the Residence Inn while in San Diego for a convention. It's in the Gaslamp Quarter, just two blocks from the convention center. Huge, modern rooms, a pool, and the best free breakfast I've ever had at a hotel. Seriously, this breakfast was incredible; biscuits and gravy, French toast, sausage hash, and all the usual cereal, muffins, and bagels. Just great. The staff was also unfailingly friendly. Just a great experience from arrival to checkout!

Great combination of convenient location and convenient features. Very quick walk to the convention center, ballpark, local shopping, and even a nice grocery store. Friendly, helpful staff at the door, front desk, and breakfast center.

Had a wonderful "staycation" at the Residence Inn Gaslamp from Mid September to early November. The staff was friendly and went out of their way to make us feel at home. In the mezzanine area Kimmie , Maria Paula, Angel Blanca Vanessa and Pedro.
In Housekeeping Elizabeth met us with a smile each day.
The Valet were helpful and pleasant.
Thank you for excellent customer service.
We enjoyed the restaurants and shops that were in walking distance of our Hotel. We also went to a Padre game at Petco Park and visited the new SDPL Central Library.

First and foremost, the staff were amazing. This is what really made this property unique and special. They were amazing from housekeeping to front desk, especially Danielle and Ryan. Maria was excellent in the breakfast area and as our meeting room concierge. What a great team atmosphere. The rooms were clean and quiet. The location was great in a quieter area of Gaslamp but still easily accessible to walk to unique shops and restaurants. Thanks for a great stay Residence Inn!

Room Tip: Elevator is very fast so it doesn't matter which floor you're on. Meeting rooms were fantast...

My husband and I stayed here for a work conference. It's within short walking distance to the Convention Center, which is a plus. Service is excellent at the Residence Inn--everyone was pleasant, and our housekeeper even did cute little extras, like folding the dish towel into a little animal shape. She also left us a personal note! The kitchenette facility was a plus since we were able to save a little money by eating in a few times (there's a Grocery Outlet a few blocks away, and the hotel even offers a free service to pick up groceries for you!). Good free Wi-Fi. The evening snacks and the complimentary buffet breakfast was great! They even had soy milk as an alternative (we are vegan) to cow's milk! Parking was very expensive, but no different than any other downtown San Diego hotel. Definitely highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: If you're interested, ask for a King bed...not all rooms have kings.

While attending a meeting at the convention center, this was an awesome location. Great breakfast included in the room price. Easy, beautiful walk to the convention center. Restaurants and shops along the way, lots of outdoor seating to enjoy the weather and people watching. Everything open, every day! Never made the gym because you can walk or jog all along the waterfront.

Room Tip: The higher the room, the better. Not much of a view but it is so beautiful outside, who wants to be...

My wife and I were on the lookout for hotels in the San Diego and Coronado Island area for our association meeting. We stayed at the Loews on Coronado - don't bother, and visited several others. Loved the service at the Marriott on Coronado - first class.

Our after-visitation excursion brought us to the Residence Inn in the Gas Lamp District. Very nice staff, much better than expected. The property is spotless, and the suite we stayed in was very comfortable. It's one street over from Fifth, where everything is happening, which is nice if you don't want to be hip 24/7. Broken Egg across the street was a wonderful alternative to the standard Marriott Residence Inn breakfast.

If you are a fan of Residence Inns, this one will not disappoint. The parking price, though high for me at $38 a day, was standard for the area.
