Stayed here one night. I booked it on an internet special through a 3rd party booking site. For a Friday night I got a great deal and paid about 120.00 dollars. It was listed as a standard room. The Room - Our room was on the second floor and we walked passed a couple conference rooms to get to it....

We visited the Gaslamp District for a good dinner, outside seating, and a fun evening of people watching. We booked a room at Gaslamp Plaza Suites because it looked charming, had a nice rooftop seating area, and because the one room we had seen previously was nice. But what we had seen before was not the "standard" room. What we...

Dear valued guest, We are very sorry that you were not happy with your room. We are a boutique property and were at one time an office building so therefore we have many room type options. We try to value each type appropriately starting with the standard and up to our large and spacious 1 bedroom suites. Please contact us...

The location is exceptional. Perfect spot to walk about Gaslamp and gd proximity to Horton Plaza. Staff particularly make this a great place. Many have years invested that you don't ordinarily see in the hospitality industry. What I appreciate is the ownership understands "treat your staff fairly and they will in turn reciprocate with great service for the customer" sounds...

My wife and I spent a week's staycation here after returning from a 2 1/2 year absence from San Diego while living in France. This timeshare/hotel afforded us an excellent location to get re-acquainted with our hometown once again- visiting old favorites and discovering new additions to the Gaslamp Quarter scene. The room we had (910) was a studio, which...

I love it here. It's literally walking distance to all the bars and restaurants! The room was very cozy, bay windows, marble floors, very intimate space. The rooftop view was amazing! Will definitely come back. :) I don't think there's room service, but that's quite alright all the restaurants are lined up once you walk outside the hotel.

Spent 2 nights here while exploring the Gaslamp district and enjoyed our stay. Spacious and comfortable rooms, rooftop breakfasts and excellent location. Helpful and friendly staff as well. Refurbished rooms in an older preserved building. Valet parking is very expensive but probably similar to other hotels in the area. Would definitely stay again.

This is a vacation ownership/ hotel that has a variety of rooms available. There are hotel units, mini suites, one bedroom standard suites, and one bedroom deluxe suites, which in our case, had two queen beds in the huge bedroom, two bathrooms, a very mini kitchenette, and a living room w/ a couch/ sleeper. We've stayed in this property several...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Gaslamp Plaza Suites. The staff was friendly, decor was nice, location was great and the rooftop had really nice views. The breakfast was decent, and it was nice that it was included with the room. Would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is in the heart of the Gaslamp area of downtown San Diego. The trolley stop (the beat and cheapest way to see the city) at 5th Avenue is a short walk away. The hotel is a modernised hotel in an old building full of character. The staff are brilliant check out the walk on a Monday with `Merry.

Very Old and what we stayed in was probably the worst room I ever stayed in, in my entire life. In the picture's they told me to look at online, was not the same as the room we actually got. And the lady at the "back", insisted that this room was all they had for us! Never going back there,...
