Certificate of Excellence
At Hotel Z we’re serving up cozy rooms with contemporary pizzazz plus a side of friendly. But you aren’t visiting America’s finest city to stay indoors, are you? Outside our lobby sunny streets reveal the cosmopolitan culture of the historic Gaslamp Quarter. Feet are all you need to access roof-top restaurants, conventions, ball games and wild animal adventures. Choosing to stay at Hotel Z is easy; the hard part is deciding where you’ll go after check-in.

The bed and comforter were awesome. Everything after that was just average. The employees were friendly, but only helpful when you specifically asked. Plan on reading everything you need to know on the television or just find it yourself. Room felt cramped, but very clean.More

Great hotel. Good shower and comfortable bed/pillows/towels.adding a gym and hot tub would put this hotel over the top. i would recommend this to a friend without doubt. Adding recommendations for tacos and food is not a bad idea.More

Hi Scenic36878401795, Thank you for the "great" sentiments! That "Naked Experience" in the rooms is something else, isn't it? Being so centrally located in downtown, the distance you'll walk to a few of these things will be about the same as you'd walk inside the...More

Clean rooms, super friendly service, speedy check-in and checkout. Right in gaslamp district so plenty of food/drink options. We thought it was a great value for the quality and convenience. Would stay again.

There are fridge and microwave in the suites only. But they do have a secure fridge at the front desk. We left a bottle of probiotics there with no problem and had easy access through the front desk personnel each day.

Sorry about my delay. I don't think it is terribly far if you want to walk to the bay beach, but the ocean beach is further. I was there for work so I didn't spend any time beaching. Sorry if it isn't more helpful!
