San Diego’s first true luxury boutique hotel that transformed the Gaslamp District from bland to chic. Situated in a building dated from 1890, The Keating is Pininfarina’s first hotel creation -world-renowned master designer behind Ferrari and Maserati. The result is a rare fusion of past and future.

This hotel has not much to compel returning: poor wi-fi, not much service, noisy bar under our room. with the high price paid, parking should be included. The best point is location, but San Diego is widespread as we discovered and other neighborhoods would have been fine.

Pretty cool boutique hotel and good staff but overpriced rooms for what you get and it's almost like they haven't spent any money in maintenance since built. Pictures online look amazing with furniture and setup then you get there and doesn't look the same and full of like Ikea quality stuff

At check in without asking, I was offer to access the room earlier since it was alredy being clean, I was told that in an hour or hour and a half max. The room was going to be ready. Came back 2 hours later, a different represenative denied the access being disrespectfull and sarcastic. And worst they put me in a room 2 floor right above a Bar, music was loud and vibration made impossible to sleep

I hope they fix the bed issue because otherwise this place is really cool. But two twins pushed together is not a king and is really uncomfortable. The place is unique, great old school vibe, and has a great location but the beds got to be addressed.

Jason, We are so sorry for the confusing nature of the booking made. It seems the channel used to secure the reservation sold the room as a 'run of house" type. This essentially means you are assigned whatever room is left in the inventory for the evening. In you your case that room was one of our optional twin types. Other than that mix up we are happy to hear you enjoyed the rest of your experience here on the property!
