The staff here is so professional and friendly. The rooms are beautiful and clean. It’s exceptional! I was in the middle of a move and I needed a landing spot before I could move into an apartment. The front desk staff moved all of my things upstairs for me and got me completely set up for a nice stay!

I would like to send a shout-out to the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego. When times are difficult such as the current with the pandemic and now national emergency related to the coronavirus, the staff, General Manager, and Tyler in particular made our stay at the Hard Rock extremely enjoyable. The staff remains upbeat during this difficult time and provided much valuable information and referrals for dinner, museums, and other attractions. I would not hesitate to stay at the Hard Rock Hotel in the Gaslamp district again!

If you ever go to beautiful San Diego for business or pleasure do not go to the Hard Rock Hotel in front of the Conference Center. The hotel lost the glamour of the brand, has young, ineffective, inexperienced and unprofessional crew. The hotel was almost empty still my team and I had long check-in and endless check-out. Due to extremely low occupancy the other hotels nearby offered discounts at the check-in despite the reservation with a higher fare. Hard Rock check-in people could not manage that. Other hotels offered better service and, mainly, a more effective customer service. The hotel charges for internet, water bottle, “resort fee” even if it doesn’t have the basic (a robe in the room or an umbrella to loan).

Location was the best part. Close to all restaurants and bars. Rooms were clean and comfortable. WiFi was fast. Valet parking is $49usd per night which is a joke. There is a car park around the corner which is much cheaper if you don't take the car out much. Staff were very average. They argued about my upgrade which they couldn't see. And said I should contact the company I booked it with. I don't understand why I need to contact them for their error. They also charged my card twice clearly in error. But said it was my banks problem for me to sort out...
