The location of this hotel is great. Close to cool bars and restaurants. It has a cool vibe and comfy bed. The coffee maker in the room was a little challenging. And the internet was weak which resulted in me giving them a lower room score. The room was large. Hoping they

Amazing location, perks, and staff. Love everything, especially the view from the corner suit. Bars are walking distance, and the hot tub is a must. Made the girlfriend happy. Would definitely recommend, 13 out of 10

great shower, but don't let it flood your room. Front desk had no response for this inconvenience other than to promptly take care of the problem. Beds and pillows were very comfortable. Don't stay in room 2C unless you want to rock with the band playing on the stage in the pub

Freedom, We apologize for the trouble our showers caused you during your stay here at The Keating. The front desk staff does not perform maintenance on the rooms themselves, the only possible response they would have is to escalate the issue to the engineer team. This is the proper procedure for these sort of complications. We are one with the heart of America's greatest city, so there are lots of buildings that surround the property and some in fact with be visible from your window as a result. In addition to the other buildings the nightlife makes up a large portion of downtown which can lead to unwanted noise permeating the hotel. We hope that we can host you again in the future and get you in a room of your liking. Thanks for your feedback!

Adventure51639332792, We are so very happy to hear that you enjoyed your time spent here on the property. Our staff works very hard to ensure our guests have an incredible experience. As for the noise we apologize for the inconvenience, the location central in the Gaslamp often facilitates the loud evenings. We truly appreciate your kind words and hope to see you again!

How much is parking on-site?
Hi Samantha - Valet parking is $40 per night. There are self parking options throughout the city that range in price. However, we would be parking your car in a monitored lot. You would not have to walk across downtown to retrieve your car either. Please let us know if you have any further questions. Thank you for thinking of The Keating!
