“Andaz is EXTRAordinary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2011

Wonderful stay at the Andaz this past week. This hotel is a grand slam, no doubt about it. Incredibly up tempo, has a very positive vibe and the team members are exceptional in every facet; roof top night club (the Ivy), restaurant, downstairs lounge/bar, wine bar (incredible with samples you can buy for a small amount of money and take an around the world tour through wine tasting). Rooms are spacious, clean, totally relaxing, hotel is located within walking distance of Petco Park and is in the Gaslamp district. Can't wait to return as soon as possible!!!

Very cool hotel, staff were excellent and upgraded us to a loft room as we were on our honeymoon. Great bar on the top floor which is definitely worth a visit. Excellent location in the heart of the gas lamp district.

From the moment we walked inside, we felt pampered! Fabulous service, perfect gaslamp location, and beautiful rooftop pool with comfy lounge area and amazing view. We will be back!

Excellent hotel.

Everything about it. The staff are very warm and friendly.

I absolutely love the free bottled water, juices, chips, and Toblerone chocolate. In this day and age where it is difficult not to feel nickel and dimed to death with fees, this is a really refreshing change. Free high speed internet, free bottled water, free snacks, free glass of wine in the lobby, and the rates are not out of line with the competition where you will pay a premium for every little thing.

I did not stay on a Friday or Saturday evening however there were occasional events on the rooftop during my stay and I was on the top floor - never heard a sound. The rooftop is a beautiful space to go for lunch by the rooftop pool or an evening glass of wine by the fire pit - really nice.

Great location a block from all the restaurants on Fifth Avenue. What is not to like here? I can get very used to the Andaz experience only to find there are no Andaz hotels in many of the cities I visit.

Contemporary and hip; nicely decorated rooms; by the way this is a Hyatt property. The location is great in the gaslamp district. I did not hear the noise outside which was a nice surprise. The room includes a huge shower (no tub) in a smallish size room but not surprising for the area. Tons of items for sale in the mini fridge, free coffee, tea and water included. Check-in done quickly on an I-Pad (of course); no complaints they were really nice. One small hiccup I asked for a place for dinner, "not too fancy" I was sent to a local seafood restaurant that was $20+ per entree, not my idea of "not fancy". Valet is also extremely expensive even for this area but you are really limited with the parking for this area.

From the bar to the restaurant to the elevator and especially the room this hotel is top tier all the way. Our room was on the smaller side but gorgeous. Have every intention of staying here again.
