“Excellent hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

We stayed in a room with an adjoining kitchenette which was really useful when we just wanted to cook a light dinner for ourselves. They have an awesome breakfast buffet and I gave the waffle maker a workout every morning. Maripaula was very diligent about making sure everything was running smoothly. The hotel is conveniently located close to the convention center and a bunch of terrific places in the Gaslamp area. And a shout-out for the valet guys as well; they were fast and courteous. I highly recommend this place if you are staying in San Diego.

Room Tip: Rooms with cooking facilities are useful if you don't want to eat out all the time. You get a de...

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...
