Stayed 7 nights at Residence Inn Gaslamp Quarter. A week before arrival, received a very nice welcome email from hotel staff. Set the right tone for our upcoming stay. Other positive feedback to note. Hotel and valet staff were very friendly and helpful. Always greeted guests with big smiles and asked if they can assist with directions. Room was clean.... More

I was hoping to stay st the Marriott next to the stadium, but the prices were out of my budget. The Residence Inn is basically across the street and the price was right, so that's where I stayed for two nights. The extra room that the Residence Inn provides was welcome, although the room layout was a bit odd with... More

The staff greeted us on arrival and when we asked about parking the bell hop suggested to park in the next block as rate was $15 per night vs $44 at hotel. Room was adequate and bed was comfortable but would have been nicer with a better security box.

We stayed in 1216, which had a nice view of the city and a limited view of the harbor past the convention center. It was a very comfortable room, and high enough that you did not hear any street noise. Breakfast was nice, and had enough tables to seat everyone.

Super friendly staff. Great breakfast. Great location. Rooms ok (kinda dated and dark). I didn't care for the lobby lounge (although others seemed to find it alluring) so I went out to eat elsewhere. Horrible gym- just horrible. So it cost me a pile of money to go to a nearby private gym. Why the midnight fire alarm. And why... More

The Residence Inn San Diego/Gaslamp Quarter is an excellent location if you are attending a conference at the Convention Center. It is a short walk along a picturesque Gaslamp Downtown setting to get to the Center. After your convention, every kind of food you will desire is a short walk from the hotel. I especially recommend the tapas at Seville.... More
