“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

This was my first stay at this property. It will not be the last. Excellent location. Across the street from the ballpark and conveniently located in the Gas Lamp District with a plethora of restaurants. The entire staff that I encountered were professional and cordial. The candy dishes at the front desk is something extra to compliment the visit. The rooms were clean and spacious. The beds were extremely comfortable, as I hated to get out of bed. The valet parking was steep. I opted for a cab. The roof top bar provides spectacular views. I look forward to the next visit.

If you're in San Diego, NOT at the beach, this is a great hotel . . . cool vibe, Rooftop bar, 10 steps from Petco Park . . . and a block from the main drag of Gaslamp. Was actually at the hotel the week it opened a couple of years ago . . . its still very nice, a better Marriott property!

Great if you have a Convention, about a 5-minute walk, and close enough to the waterfront that you can take a nice long walk to the more touristy places!

If you're a Padres fan, or your team is playing them, this IS the place!

Room Tip: High floor, stadium view!

Great place to stay for a meetings in the Convention Center. Had a great view of Petco Park from the 22nd floor roof-top. Close to many restaurants. Great walking along the marina, embarkadero and Seaport Village is not far away.

Was in town for a convention. I eschewed the big, official "convention hotels" and opted for my favorite, the Marriott. I was not at all disappointed. It's only about a quarter-mile walk, not bad at all. Some colleagues were staying at the Marina Marriott, which is next to the Convention Center, but door to door their walk seemed longer.

I was completely satisfied with the Marriott Gaslamp. Absolutely wonderful, friendly staff, my room was clean and I "almost" had a view of Petco Field from my room. It was close to some really good restaurants, far closer than the Marina Marriott.

But this place seemed to be a party spot. Saturday night at 2:15 a group of 10-12 drunks had closed a bar and descended on the room next to me. Drunk shouting in the hallways, etc. Security came up and took care of it, but the whole floor was awake by then. The rooftop bar was voted best trendy bar in San Diego, but that also brings a younger party element to the property. And the fact that it's rooftop means this group is all over the lobbies, elevators, etc.

Without a doubt it met my needs and expectations, but that may not be true for everyone considering staying there. It also has no pool, no hot tub, nothing, also a deterrent for many families.

Room Tip: Many rooms have a view of Petco Field, although they may cost a few extra bucks.

Business meeting, great location for exploring Gas Lamp district and a 10 min walk to the convention center. Rooms were clean and comfortable and could see home plate inside the stadium from my window.

Room Tip: Go up high and ask for one facing the stadium

We had a suite on the 11th floor and it was very noisy.

We could hear the guests above us getting ready, dropping things etc.

ADVICE: PASS on the restaurant Soleil @K We had Sunday breakfast and the service was the worst service we have EVER experienced. My husband and I go out very often and know bad to good service and this restaurant is below bad. I guess when I had to tell the hostess our server hasnt shown up after we have been sitting for 15 minutes should have been a red flag. PASS THIS UP!

Dear Katmar7,

Thank you for taking the time to let us know how your stay with us was and reviewing our hotel. First of all I am very sorry for the noise that you experienced during our stay and I have communicated this to our Loss Prevention team to make sure that they are aware of what happened during your stay.

I cannot begin to tell you how disappointed I am to find out about your experience that you had in our restaurant, Soleil. We strive to ensure that everyone has the best possible experience when they visit us and we obviously fell WAY short of providing that. I have shared this with not only my supervisors but with our morning restaurant staff to let them know about your experience, we will use this as a training tool and to make sure that this does not happen again. I hope that the next time that you are in San Diego that you stay with us again and give us the chance to make up for your bad dining experience . We are more than capable of giving the great service that you deserve. Once again, please accept my sincere apologies.

Regards,

Sean Mattix

This was a very large hotel next to the convention center and close to shopping and the gas lamp district. My husband and I celebrated our 33rd anniversary . We'd had a long day visiting Balboa park and had had a late lunch so when we went to the hotel's restaurant we ordered light salads. We had mentioned our anniversary to the hostess in passing. From then on we were treated royally. The hostess apparently mentioned it to the waiter who mentioned it to the chef. The chef sent out appetizers and THEN two fantastic desserts. We were very surprised and pleased. our room had a view of the marina and a small nice balcony. The valet parking was expensive in my opinion but we splurged. I agree with one of the reviewers..the towels were a bit scratchy. Overall we had a great time and would come back to the hotel if nothing else than for our restaurant experience.
