The Keating Hotel needs to be experienced. My stay in April was delightful. It has nostalgia and history along with amenities of today. It plays with the senses with it's contemporary decor combined within the structure built in the 1800's. One gets a little glimpse into the past while being in the pulse of the Gaslamp District of downtown San Diego.
As a single female, I felt safe. Everything I took in during my stay was within walking distance, so I had no need for a vehicle. There was always someone at the front desk to greet me when I came and went.
After having the delectable treat which was left each evening on the nightstand and before crawling into a luxuriously made up bed, I opened the windows and the drone from all the activity and outdoor patrons at the many restaurants and bars provided a wonderful white noise to fall sound asleep to.
In the morning if you chose to sleep late, the darkening shades did a superb job of keeping the room dark. Otherwise the shades could be pulled up to let the sun's rays come pouring through the windows into the room.
One word of caution...if you decide to use the Jacuzzi tub, make sure the water in the tub is filled to cover the top jet nozzles...otherwise it provides a fountain of arching streams of water crisscrossing each other and shooting out into the room!
