My husband and I bought a travel voucher for a 50-minute aromatherapy massage, champagne, and access to the Hard Rock pool. We were so excited to try out the spa and lay by the pool on Sunday, but we were let down. When we checked in, the attendant took our voucher information and sent us to the locker rooms. We... More

I have stayed at multiple Hard Rock Hotels. Every time, I am more then pleased with their level of service, hospitality, cleanliness and professionalism. I used the workout room 3 of the 4 mornings and it too was clean and welcoming. If you like the Hard Rock theme, I would highly recommend this hotel.

Overall, a nice property, located near Civic Center. Trolley, and Petco Stadium. Stayed on 12th floor facing convention center and found train stops/traffic noise to be a little loud, particularly in wee hours of the morning. Liked free Electra Bikes...we rode about 20 miles and would encourage guests to road test before going far; one of the bikes had very... More

More than half the rooms have really bad views of a parking garage or worse (in my case a roof top with a bunch of HVAC units). I booked a suite with a terrace, but it really wasn't something you could chill and relax on (see picture). The bathroom had a noisy fan that could not be turned off, the... More

Hotel was clean and staff was very friendly. The food was good as well as the beverages. The rooms were clean and room service was very courteous. Overall, this was a very successful business trip and I will likely come back again.
