“"Amazing Hospitality"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2011

I had a wonderful time staying here. The complimentary glass of wine upon check-in, Vladimir's excellent service in changing our room to a more comfortable setting for my mom and me, complimentary snack basket, and everyone being so courteous and friendly made our stay one of the best that I've ever experienced. The rooms are nicely decorated with all the modern technology. The only drawback was the shower. It was a bit challenging to get the nozzle to spray directly on me, being petite and there needs to be some type of hook to hang your clothing and robe. The wine bar is a must visit. It's so cool with the different machine generated pourings! Overall, a most definite visit!

Room Tip: The king rooms have a visible shower, so if with friends, choose a room with double beds.

I have stayed at the Andaz in San Diego a few times and have always been completely satisfied with our stay. The service has been exemplary, where everyone from the cleaning people on up to the executives walking by are making sure all your needs are taken care of. The rooms are very stylish yet also very comfortable and the rooftop bar and pool were fun with a lot of energy. I highly recommend staying at this hotel.

Remember the black-out in early Sept (2011) that took out all of San Diego and then some? Yah, well I stayed at this hotel during this freak out. I had to take a moment to recognize each staff member as they handled the whole situation with ease, professionalism, and class. No, I don't work there, promise. Anyway, I was there for a conference that was taking place that week and the manager on duty made sure everyone was well taken care of but, prob more importantly, safe as well. The front desks guys offer water when you go for a run, the breakfast room service tastes AMAZING! And, the rooms themselves are really, really nice - love the double headed shower.

The only issue, if anything, is that it's located in the heart of the party/night life district so be prepared to hear a lot of "woo hoo's" and laughing through your windows into the night. But hey, the place is cool, sheek, and not a bad place to stay if that's how you like to party anyway.

Cheers to the staff!

Had a wonderful stay at the Andaz San Diego...glass of cabernet when we checked in, complimentary transportation, snacks, drinks, etc. Unbelievable rooftop bar and pool, great rooms and the employees, especially Tom at the front desk, were incredibly courteous, knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommend staying here.

Just had a sales meeting at the Andaz, Great service and location. The employees are eager to please and take care of all your needs. Rooms were very nice and the location in the gaslamp district is super.
Parking is only Valet and 35 bucks a day so be aware. About the same everywhere downtown...

Room Tip: Get an outside room... they are a bit bigger

Very good location, fun place with great views from the rooftop which also serves as a great pool area and popular nightclub. Great concierge staff. Take advantage of the free executive car for transportation to surrounding nightspots.

Over Labor Day Weekend my girlfirend and I stayed at the Andaz on the recommendation of a friend. Orginally we had booked a room at one of the over priced beach hotels. So glad we switched. The staff was great and so helpful. The vallet is expensive but was offset by the included breakfast in the AAA rate we received. Room Service every morning at no extra charge!

We never heard any noise from the club at night when it was time to go to bed (we did hear a little noise from the street) and all the people going to the club creates such lively scene at the hotel. Wether you are young or just young at heart like us this hotel is happening! The free snacks and drinks from the mini bar and WiFi is also a great plus.

One Warning: THIS IS NOT A HOTEL TO BRING YOUR FAMILY WITH SMALL KIDS! Stay at Sea World hotel you will have a better time!

Also upon check out I had a question about the rate. Which I decided to just call Hyatt and check it out when we got home. Tyler the AGM actually came to the car as we were getting ready to leave and gave us his card and said to give him a call once we checked to see if the rate was correct. That was really nice of him (the rate was right on the bill as it turned out).

So if you want to stay at a cool boutique hotel in the heart of the Gas Lamp District. This is the place!
