Our stay was excellent !! Check in was fast. Our room was outstanding !! Very clean and great layout. Location is great for taking in the Gaslamp Quarter. You can walk to wherever you want to go. My advise is to use Uber rather than taxi !! A lot cheaper !! Would stay here again.

If you're young and want a party vibe this is the hotel for you. The rooms are very modern and dark. On weekends the hotel can get very crowded and be very loud late into the night because of people drinking and partying. Its located right at entrance to the gaslamp district. Endless amount of bars and restaurants right out...

Just got here last night but flew in late and was treated by a very friendly and helpful front desk agent named Olivia. She took the time to accommodate my requests and went through the many features of the property's offerings. Was nice to meet a friendly face after a long trip... great job.

If you are attending a conference and getting reimbursed, then stay here for your meeting, its only a 5 minute walk to the convention center. Also, location good for Gaslamp restaurants. The rooms are kind of tight with the double beds, not much room for walking around. Housekeeping did a good job. Water was very hot for showers. Lots of...

I stayed here this weekend with my husband and had an incredible time. The room was nice, nothing too glamorous but not understated either. The entire hotel makes you nostalgic for all the great musicians life has given us. We checked out the rooftop bar and the view was mesmerizing. There was a relaxed vibe, nothing pretentious, just great music...

A big group of 10 of us went and stayed at the Hard Rock for NYE and we all had a blast. The whole place was set up with different themes from around the world. Even though there was rain in San Diego, the way it was set up really didn't matter . The service at the hotel was awesome...

I loved everything about the hotel. My room was amazing, the bed was comfy, I loved that I had a late checkout BUT... The breakfast was not good. The pancake potato thing was gross and undercooked, the toast was so hard it was impossible to eat, I spent $18 on this breakfast plate and I barely got to eat anything....

The Hard Rock in San Diego was appealing, and upbeat. The rooms were not well light, with minimal room amenities. I would have to pay more if I wantedthe items I needed. I paid $240 more for my stay due to their hidden fees, which I did not use to beging with. Horrible wifi connection, smell of Marijuana and vomit...

We stayed here due to its proximity to Petco Park so my DH could walk there for Supercross. For this purpose, it was a great pick. Five minute walk. Also, LOTS of restaurants within easy walking distance, and the Gaslamp Quarter is happening on the weekends! We were also able to cross over the Convention Center steps and walk down...

“I always recommend the King or Queen suites, they are large enough rooms where you can have the extra room to just hang to watch TV or to have your friends over too. ”

“Request a higher floor on the opposite side of the hotel from the night club, and pray there's no event at the hotel that night.”

“Room was very nice couldn't get the temp right for some reason so I just turned the unit off and the room was warmer that way. The fan ran all the time in the bathroom which was a little annoying at night so I had to be sure I left the door closed.”
