The Gaslamp Plaza Suites is a historical, European style hotel built in 1913. The original architectural aspects are still evident such as original marble on walls and stairways and brass elevator doors. All are preserved meticulously in keeping with our status of being listed in the National Registry of Historic Places. Located in the heart of the historic Gaslamp Quarter, The Gaslamp Plaza Suites is surrounded by shopping, theater, art galleries and more than 100 fantastic restaurants and night clubs. The Gaslamp Plaza Suites is a half-mile walk from the San Diego Convention Center, as well as Petco Park (home to the San Diego Padres). We are 1 mile from Seaport Village and USS Midway and 2 miles from the Cruise Terminal and the world famous San Diego Zoo. We are also close to other tourist attractions like Sea World, Balboa Park, Coronado, San Diego Harbor, House of Blues, Civic Theater , and the newly remodeled Balboa Theater.

A wonderful place to relax while exploring San Diego. We were able to enjoy a comfortable room that became our retreat after exploring new and familiar places. The staff was professional and helpful. We highly recommend it.

Very clean and comfortable place to stay. Staff was all super friendly. Location is right next to all of the outdoor dining and nightlife the Gaslamp area is known for. I also got an incredible price. Overall, will likely stay here again if I return to the area.

My SO and I stayed at the Gaslamp Plaza Suites for Valentine’s Weekend and greatly enjoyed ourselves, on arrival they upgraded our room! The staff had great customer service especially Adrianna and the men at valet. The roof top on level G was a beautiful way to relax and over look the city! Only complaint I have is I wasn’t aware the hotel only had valet parking available until I arrived the cost was $38 a night which is not a problem it was just something I would have liked to know before arriving. With that being said once you check out you are allowed to leave your car with valet until 3pm so you can still explore the city, which is great because finding parking elsewhere is sparse. Will definitely be staying here again and recommending to my family and friends.

This hotel was smaller than expected in terms of the room and the hotel overall. I was expecting much more space. The staff was extremely friendly and it’s great for location. Wouldn’t recommend if you’re looking for a big/medium sized room. This is definitely more for a single person stay.

Very nice old historical building built around 1913 and there are many other old historical building around it. it is more like a hotel but great location close to many restaurants and shops. We would go back once Covid is gone or under control. I hope all the great restaurants can survive the shut downs. There are homeless in the area but they will leave you alone if you don't play into there request for money. Lots of stuff to do in San Diego they have a great zoo and the wild life safari park. The Midway air craft carrier is docked in the harbor with lots of other cool ships and they are a short walk away from this location.
