“Visit Ruined by Music”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Was impressed by the hotel, facilities & staff but our stay was ruined by the music played on the rooftop - it could be heard in our bedroom until 1am, the bass was so loud that the mini bar bottles on the shelves were rattling for hours!! Normally I would go and join the party but the next day I had a 20 hour journey back home!!

Just a little disappointed.......

Cannot say enough good things about the hotel. Very modern and luxurious feel. Staff goes above and beyond. When we checked in the valet notice our golf clubs, asked where we were going to play and then took upon himself to print out directions and delivery them to the room. When we need a small conference room for a meeting, they had nothing available so they opened up the wine bar for us to have a place to work.

On a Whim I googled " Sexy Hotelsin San Diego" I wanted to surprise my wife with a little getaway. I booked the romance package which was promptly brough to our room by staff once we checked in. The delivery included Chocolate covered starwberries, Champagne and a "love kit" complete with a vibrating ring, condoms and 2 wonderful lubrication selections. The see through shower with the rain style shower heads were also amazing in many ways. The hotel staff was awesome and the breakfast was good. The beds were very comfy, nice amenities. Free Soda Pop and snacks from the mini bar with a nice selection of alcohol in your room as well. We will DEFINITELY stay again, in fact I think I will try and book another weekend now.

I am not a fan of the W Hotels and try to avoid them. When Hyatt introduced this part of their hotel lineup to compete with the W I was worried it would suffer the same problems but in fact they do not.
The rooms were nice but a bit compact but the bathroom is large. I love the combo of the handheld and rain shower. Decent soap products as well. Internet was fast and the bed was very comfortable. What I also liked is that the hotel provides FREE juices and bottled water in the room - unlike the W which charges a fortune for both. Nicely done Andaz.
The gym is fine and the equipment in good shop. The roof top is wonderful with nice views and a great bar location. I had breakfast on the roof and the eggs benedict was excellent and home made.
My only negative is that I was given a room on the street side which picked up all the noise from below.

Room Tip: Do not get a room facing the street due to noise.

I visit here very often for business. The customer service is impeccable! The staff on the rooftop (ask for Ari, Will, or Brandon) is excellent and the hosts try to accommodate you the best way they can. I love how they give you freebies: chips, granola bars, sodas, bottled waters, and juices. You know how hard it is to get anything free from a hotel?! Then they restock it without you even asking! Not to diss another Hyatt, but I stayed a category 6 resort hotel close to the area and we didn't get any snacks or drinks for free. One time I left my credit card in the hotel and I returned 3 days and they returned it. That was truly a blessing. The housekeeping staff anywhere else.... The downside: this is a pricey hotel. Also, certain rooms are noisy because of their location to the Andaz parties on Thursdays. The queen rooms are kind of tight too. This is my favorite hotel and opt to stay here every time I'm in San Diego.

What a great hotel in the Gas-lamp district. Sort of reminded me of the W Hotels in style but without the snobbery. I never did get my daily paper despite even reminding them but that was a small quibble in an overall excellently managed hotel. Excellent staff, wonderful room and the rooftop looked great but being a biz trip I didn't get to indulge. I'll come back here on a non conference trip with the wife for sure. Superb little hotel.

Room Tip: You have to remind them to bring your paper each day...I never got mine. Lower rooms are noisy if w...

Visited Andaz for Business, Great Loations in the Gaslamp District. Lots of action, restaurants, nightclubs, Bars. Not far from the Ocean. Clean rooms. Staff very accomidating. Pool on Roof was great, wonderful views. Good place to relax or have a drink at night before dinner.
Food at restaurant was great, lots of variety. Most everything is within walking distance, but hotel does provide car service. If you are planning a late night out, be sure and take the hotel number and give them a call. They were great about pick up service. Enjoy!
