Residence Inn San Diego Downtown/Gaslamp Quarter
Ranked #46 of 278 Hotels in San Diego
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 31, 2014

I was staying at the hotel for a conference and it was the perfect location. Very convenient to the convention center; but also in the middle of the Gaslamp District. Basically great for either occasion. The streetcar and bus lines is close as well.

The hotel itself has been through the upgrades and everything is above the standards of a typical Residence Inn. I brought San Diego friends to the room and they didn't realize it existed, and were impressed. I can't think of any significant incident that would come close to an issue (and I'm usually picky). Staff was great, and the rooms were perfect for my needs.

We stayed there 4 nights. The suite is very nice and has a kitchenette with a full fridge. We were on the 10th floor and had views of the convention center and the Bay. The location is great - just 2 blocks to the Petco Ball Park and right in the middle of the Gaslamp area. Lots of restaurants and shops within walking distance. The buffet breakfast is very nice. There are waffles, eggs, sausage, potatoes, toast, bagels, muffins, fresh fruit, cereal and yogurt. During the week breakfast is served 6 - 9 am and on the weekends it is 7 - 9:30 am. It was never crowded and we could get in and eat and out in no time at all. If you are a runner there are lots of areas to run from the hotel. The bridge to Coronado Island is close by - you can either drive there or take the ferry. The beach there is very nice and the sand is very powdery. Go to Lou & Mickey's Restaurant - it is about 3 blocks from the hotel. I had the best steak I have ever eaten.

A great hotel in a great location. I was there with my girlfriend over the Christmas/New Years break. The gym was great, the staff were extremely helpful and the rooms were awesome. The only downside was that they did not have the typical evening snacks and drinks that I am used to with Residence Inn's. I have also never experienced such a busy breakfast area. It was hard to find a seat and some items were not in stock. This was not a big surprise though as the Chargers had a home game that weekend.

Great reception from hotel staff at this downtown San Diego Hotel. Our request for adjourning rooms was granted making our time away ever so much better. Our Kitchen had a full refrigerator, a two burner stove and a microwave. You can get groceries at the CVS three blocks away or at Ralph's located next to Horton Plaza. The breakfast is fine but not memorable, but that is OK. They are generally kid friendly. Parking was alot cheaper one block further downtown for only $15/day. Close to the Convention Center making this hotel an ideal location.

I stayed the Residence Inn San Diego Gaslamp quarter this past week-combination business and vacation.

I cannot overstate the excellent customer service we experienced all through-reception/front desk (Samantha, Anita and Sara) went the extra mile to solve my queries, suggestions as to where to dine, car rental and so on. Samantha managed to get us some fruits after our late arrival after a transcon flight. Housekeeping, dining area couldn't have been nicer! Our room was very well done and kept.

This hotel exceeded my expectations and would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. We will be back for sure.
