Christina at front desk deserves a raise..she helped us out a lot. The rooms were perfect as always...we're returning in December and hopefully we can stay longer...Fresca spa was nice...a little pricey but worth the trip if longer than one night

TV didn't work correctly. The concierge went out of their way to help. The street noise is constant. Cleaning staff needs to be more consistent with towel / shampoo / soap, etc. The shower is in the bedroom, so there is little privacy.

To start off The Keating is in a great location in the heart of the Gaslamp. We went as a couple looking to explore San Diego beaches by day and soak up the nightlife after dark. There are more quality bars and restaurants within short walking distance from this hotel than I could count. Best nightlife scene I've found on... More

Great place to stay for food, drink, nightlife or baseball game. It is in a high traffic area, so noise sensitive people may not like it. We loved it! Great location. The place had a cool vibe. Staff was awesome! I felt like I was staying at a friends place.

We originally came across this hotel online and didn't think too much of it, the rooms looked nice, and it was in the heart of the gaslamp district, which is what we wanted most. We kind of knew what to expect and didn't think too much of it. We were VERY surprised, the hotel itself was VERY nice. The staff... More

First, great compliment to the staff. Especially the new trainee? Christine was amazing. She really made us smile and happy. The rooms are big, but look a bit like a youth hostel. Buttons of lights are difficult to play around with, same as the shower. In the evening a bit noisy till 1am with bands, you better use this hotel... More

Penthouse is spacious. No disturbing noise from outside unlike rooms in lower floors. No safe in the room! It's complicate to put your valuables in the hotel safe. No light switch at the bed. Unpleasant smell in the hall and room.
