Fantastic place to stay, Great and friendly staff. The rooms were big and comfortable and the views from the roof top were of the best in San Diego. Location is well located, close to all major bars, restaurants and attractions around the city. Highly recommended!

I live just 90 minutes away from San Diego but after an evening business event, we wanted to be able to stay in the city instead of driving home. Got a deal on Hotels.com and had mediocre expectations. The hotel exceeded them! The hotel itself is very neat (an old bank) and the rooms are lovely. Our room was nicely...

Couldn't ask for a better staff. Friendly, courteous, helpful and smart. Rooms are clean, well appointed and for a couple, the mini suite is the way to go. This could become my favorite. Centrally located, walk anywhere and cabs are readily available. Beautiful rooftop complimentary breakfast. Highly recommend! I will be back.

We saw this property at the last minute from a hotel app. We tried to reserve it through the app but were unsuccessful. We drove there anyway and they looked up the app price and honored it for two nights. The hotel is within walking distance to the mall and the Gaslamp district with many restaurants and clubs close by....

I gave this hotel a five star because of it's great value. It's a neat old hotel in the Gaslamp section of the city. The room was small but in good shape and clean. The location was great and the staff was outstanding. The price was really reasonable compared to others in the area. I would stay there again

This is a great hotel. We stayed in a mini suite and it was excellent. Spotlessly clean with great ammenities. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in the center of the Gaslamp District. Close to everything. Would get a bit noisey at night because it is so close to all the nightlife action but the noise...

This hotel is right in the heart of the Gaslamp section of town. If you are and urban type person who loves being in the city - this is the place. There are tons of great restraurants. The hotel is only 2 miles from the zoo and Balboa Park and about 1 mile from the harbor. It's a great place...

We booked this hotel for a bachelorette party due to the great reviews. Merry at the front desk was quite nice, just like other reviewers posted and the rooms we had were nice. Not super fancy, but they were both decent sized and clean. The rooftop terrace was great and we enjoyed a beautiful sunset while we were there. My...

Dear guest, I appreciate the opportunity to address your comments and concerns. You had previously contacted us and requested to switch to a larger unit. At that time nothing else was available but a request of an upgrade to a larger unit was noted on your reservation. In regards to the extra fee, this is a common practice with most...

This hotel/time-share is located in an area jam-packed with bars and restaurants. It's a very popular area in the evenings and late night. If you're interested in using public transportation, buses are one block away and two of the three trolley lines are two blocks away. Parking is $30/night but that was the norm. Some places were charging $39 per...

When we told the woman at the front desk that it was our honeymoon, she sang to us. That was the start of our time at the Gaslamp, a clean, very cool hotel in the middle of San Diego's Gaslamp district. An old bank, the hotel had cool touches that made it feel at once historic and modern-- frosted glass...
