Although I have been Hard Rockin' since the 90's, this is the first time I have stayed at one of the hotels. The first brownie point came when I saw the hotel is literally at the gate to the Gaslamp Quarter! The hotel staff were all very nice and in a good mood. I was there with a group from... More

Right in the Gaslamp district. Walk to everything. Nice rooms, awesome spa & staff was friendly. Erica, Vanessa & Luis at the Rock Spa were wonderful & super friendly. Borrowed one of many guitars through the front desk which was fun for my son. Food & drinks were great. Mary Janes attached to hotel was delicious. Only thing was at... More

Location, location, location! This hotel its in the middle of San Diego action, right in the Gaslamp quarter, a block away from the convention center, the trail and the baseball field, meaning you have all the fun stuff a walk away from your hotel, the marina it's also pretty near. The rooms are small but nice, the shower with double... More

After San Diego Comic-Con I needed some time to recover and wanted to check out what the Hard Rock suites were like. I had a queen suite which was very spacious. The check in staff (Ernesto) was very friendly and helpful. I wanted to have a drink after checking in but the downstairs lounge was closed because everything had been... More

The rooms are fun, clean and comfortable. The experience is second to none. The staff is friendly. I will be back. Location is great for events at Petco and the Convention Center. The train is right outside the door for easy access to a larger area. Fantastic restaurants a few steps away. Rooftop bar with firepit seating is one of... More

We had the best stay at the Hard Rock San Diego! We had a beautiful room with a view of the ocean and the harbor but the air conditioning in the room didn't work very well. After the second maintenance guy came to fix it, we asked to be moved. The hotel was 100% full so they were unable to... More

My group was so fortunate to get a room here for Comic-Con this year. We were as close as possible to the convention center, and all the extras put on by the hotel added so much to our Con experience, like the Walking Dead elevator wraps and Suicide Squad interactive experience in the lobby. The service was TOP NOTCH, wow,... More

We stayed at the Hard Rock hotel for Comic-Con this year and it was amazing! Everyone was very friendly and helpful from the housekeeping staff up. Eileen at the pool bar was especially helpful for local information and fast, personable service. The only downside to our stay was that the pool was closed down during most of our visit due...

The Hard Rock hotel in the Gaslamp is fun. It's a lot of fun. But be clear that when I say fun, it's not a family hotel. It's fun if you're looking to get together with friends to enjoy local events, drink around the city, or even take on the weekend pool parties they provide. So just make sure you... More
