“Exceeded my expectations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

Full disclosure - I'm not a Marriott fan. Generally I find the hotels tired. But this hotel exceeded my expectations.

Well located just a short stroll from the Convention Centre and across from Petco Baseball park, its on the edge of Gaslamp district, which is good, because the bars on 5th get noisy.

There's a great rooftop bar with amazing views and great margaritas.

Check in staff were super friendly, and my room was serviced very well. In fact, the maid tidied up my room so well, I thought my Mum had been in to tidy up the mess on my desk and table top. Thanks!!

I'd return if ever in San Diego. Such a pleasant town.

You can never go wrong with Marriott! This hotel offers 2 top notch bars/restaurants in the hotel, a comfortable room, and excellent customer service from valet parking to room service. The location of Marriott Gaslamp Quarter lends itself to walking distance of Gaslamps restaurants, bars, shops, the Convention Center, and Petco Stadium. If you want to do additional site seeing away from the Gaslamp District there are several types of public transportation readily available that are close by.

Room Tip: If you want a view of the Bay opt for the higher floors.

The hotel was extremely clean and spacious. I had a huge desk to work at, a very big bathroom and room was well lit. I also had a great view of the San Diego ball park. This was definitely one of the nicest Marriott’s I have ever stayed at. The price for the room is more that I personally would pay but it was a business trip and it was in a good location. There are many restaurants, shops and you could even walk to Horton Plaza. The ladies at the front desk were very helpful and knowledgeable. Only complaint - I waited almost 5 minutes one morning for an elevator.

My wife and I traveled with our two young children 7 and 5 years old so we could see the San Diego Padres Play. We stayed at this hotel for one night. The room was nice and the front staff were very friendly. They even gave us a room that over looked Padres Stadium. We mentioned that my son was having a birthday and they surprised us with a mini cake and candle when we got into the room after the game. Parking is 40 dollars a night, but we got lucky as we parked on the street right next to the hotel. The hotel is within walking distance to the Padres Stadium and eateries. There is a roof top bar which was pretty nice. Lots of young people or young couples. I would stay here again if I were to go to the Padres baseball game. The only thing I wished they had was a swimming pool. That would put the icing on the cake.

I stayed here for a conference in March. It's very convenient to the convention center. You are a short walk away from all the great restaraunts and entertainment. There's great places to run in the morning and their work out facilities are also decent. You are actually also can look out and see into the baseball stadium. I found this very convenient for in and out to the airport as well. The pool are was fantastic to just sit at and relax. Nice place, I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask about facing the convention center. If you do this you can see a little of the oce...

This is a very nice hotel which lives up to Marriott standards. What separates this hotel from others is the location. It is right next door to the baseball stadium, Petco Park. In fact, they have a rooftop bar area where you can actually look right down into the stadium and see the game! It is also a block from the gaslamp disctrict so you don't need to have a car or drive once you get there.

Room Tip: Get a room with a stadium view.

This is a great location. Our room had a fantastic view of Petco Park. The room was comfortable and clean with just the right amount of space. It's gaslamp so you won't be in the room too much. Perfect location for taking in what the gaslamp district has to offer. Also, there is an incredible rooftop bar with almost 360° views of Petco Park, the bridge and downtown. Great place to stay.
