Second stay here. Another great weekend. Friendly staff except for One bouncer from the lounge. He was rude. Overall hotel associate employees very friendly. The room we had was amazing. Plenty of room.

Loved the location right in the middle of the Gaslamp district. And uber ride was 5 bucks to the location of the show we went to. Hotel staff was beyond courteous and helpful, from the valet to the front desk. Breakfast was the usual continental breakfast that you get everywhere else. The room was extremely clean, came with plates and...

This is our second time staying at the Gaslamp Plaza suites, for my husband's birthday. It's such a great stay! Comfortable beds, clean, and spacious. Plus, you don't have to make line for the club downstairs, just show your room key. Ambiance for the club is great! Not too many people " rolling ".

Great Service from the Lady at the service desk!! Sorry I forgot her name. The building was old but very clean. Great continental breakfast in the morning and a great view with a rooftop seating for all day and night entertaining.

The location is convenient if you're going out in the Gaslamp district. It's a 10 (very brisk) to 15 minute walk to the convention center. Breakfast was included, which was nice. Very basic: bagels, cereal, instant oatmeal. The staff was very accommodating. I initially had a tiny room with very noisy neighbors that kept me up all night (I would...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Gaslamp. The room was much larger than I expected and had a retro vibe. The location is terrific, in the heart of the Gaslamp District. The rooftop breakfast room is lovely though the food is pretty much the same everyday and it's a limited continental breakfast. But it met our needs. Keep in...

Very nicely renovated building with all the class of the 1913 original. All the brass and marble really added to the experience. We had a corner room on the 8th floor with a nice view of the Gas Lamp District, but the view from the roof was really amazing. Very friendly lobby staff and within walking distance to all the...

This is a lovely older building 5 blocks north of convention center. It is very close to lots of restaurants, bars, and theaters. There is a very basic free breakfast (for gluten free diners the only options were yogurt, oranges or apples.) The roof top patio where breakfast is served has a nice harbor view. There is NO pool, fitness...

I booked a room at this place on a last minute decision through HotelTonight. It kept saying there was 1 room available so I thought I got the last of it! When I arrived to check in, the man had told me that I had been upgraded to one of the suites, FOR THE PRICE OF A REGULAR ROOM! That...

We have stayed at the Gas Lamp Plaza many times over the years and enjoyed our rooms and the location, this time, however we were put in a very small room. It was still very clean and the bed was comfortable but we felt like we were on a cruise ship in a stateroom! You can't beat this hotel if...
