We stayed here during the AAOS and the town was jam packed. Ryan keithley is the director of events here: and we were so happy have him as our coordinator. He is so charming and efficient. It all went very well and we can't wait to see Ryan again

So we were in San Diego for a conference and you can't beat the location of the Hard Rock. Plus Nobu is in the Lobby!!!! That said our room, the rockstar suite, was old, tired and dirty. The rug was stained with what i can only guess was liquor and puke. I asked to have it cleaned, replaced or removed...

We stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel with our high school aged kids. They loved the amenities, location that is close to baseball, shopping, and cool restaurants. I would not recommend for families with younger kids.

I don't always associate Hard Rock, with "Really Nice," but I'm pleased to say that it was exactly that. Taking a last minute Tuesday getaway with my wife we travelled down the coast to San Diego. Parking in the gaslamp we decided to walk to some of the surrounding hotels to see which offered the best deal and accommodations. Well...

Hard Rock Hotel, San Diego, California... Checked in the VIP area, and headed straight to my Woodstock suite to chill on the balcony sipping on some cocktails. Went to Nobu for some passion fruit sake and fresh sashimi... Thanks to everyone at Hard Rock and Nobu...

So the nice thing about this hotel, is the location, it is right on fifth ave which is the happening part of town, so many bars and restaurants around, walking distance to the stadium and marina/marina park. Rooms were nicely appointed and very modern. A great place to stay in SD if you are planning a weekend there. Ask for...

Stayed here as it so close to the Convention Centre where we were on business. Location is perfect, just 2 mins away and great for bars and restaurants in Gaslamp. Nice staff on front desk, and Valet, however we thought the rooms were tired and in need of a makeover. Decorated in a neutral brown they were underwhelming. Next time...

I have stayed at the Hard Rock San Diego a few times now and it is always great. The staff is always amazing and helpful. Our VIP bartender Robbie is the absolute best! He made the trip one of the best ever.
