Was having some buddies in town from Philadelphia, so of course had to go to the Phillies /Padres baseball game. Wanted to stay at a hip/happening place so the Hard Rock Hotel was a no-brainer. The service was excellent, the room was edgy, the location was perfect (walking distance to everything), enjoyed the amenities that felt like Hard Rock....and had... More

Everything was great except for the fact that someone entered my room at 4AM! Come to find out that your doors self closure doesn't work properly. Other than that, I would stay here again. Location was fabulous. Easy access to just about everything in downtown San Diego.

I was in San Diego on business so didn't experience the entire hotel the way I wanted, but it looked great and the staff were very friendly. 2 items of note - 1. I didn't know about a $23 "resort fee" until I received my final bill (I'm unsure as to why they have a resort fee when it's not... More

Very great place to stay. Welcoming staff, it's in a great location and a great atmosphere to be around. Rooms were clean and customer service was great. The hotel is located right near a bus and trolley terminal so easy to get around.

The Hard Rock in San Diego is our FAVORITE! Reggie enhances the overall experience of everything. From the minute we walked in, at 8AM, our room was conveniently ready (we didn't expect it). Reggie helped us with things around town, set us up with the 'courtesy' bikes and passes to the pool. We couldn't have asked for a better service... More

Planned a weekend trip to San Diego. Stayed in the diamond suite at the Hard Rock Hotel. Elaine Cordova and the staff were amazing.
