The Keating Hotel by Pininfarina
Ranked #113 of 279 Hotels in San Diego
Reviewed 7 May 2012

I can honestly say that I have never stayed in such a terrible hotel. The noise level from the nearby bar prevented any thoughts of a good night's sleep. The rude reception staff found it surprising that I would be concerned about the noise. The interior of the room resembled that of a prison cell and the open shower ensured privacy was not unachievable. Horrendous!

I loved this hotel, staff, location, food, ect. My only complaint is the street noise. The windows are old and need to be upgraded to doubled pane glass; if not triple. So if you are easily bothered by outside noise or are a light sleeper this is not the hotel for you.

Loved the vibe of this hotel, had a very slick urban feel that would be appreciated by design aficionados. Yes, it was fairly noisy on the 4th floor overlooking the street, but to be expected in an entertainment district and it added to the overall vibe.
Check in was very friendly and personalised.
Loved the real espresso machine in the room, a real find considering how difficult it is to get real espresso in the States.
Only disappointment was that the included breakfast wasn't provided, but I was fairly happy with just the coffee anyway.
Not suitable for prudes or people wanting a standard hotel experience.

Room Tip: I doubt there is a perfectly quiet room, so choose another hotel if you want this.

The hotel itself was clean and the bed was very comfortable, however what good is the comfort of the bed if all you can hear starting at 9 or so is the very very loud music from down below, and you cannot fall asleep.There is a pub right next door. Drums beating actually vibrated the bed. We did move to the other end of the hotel but it did not make any difference. Unacceptable.

Room Tip: I wish I could
