The rooms are nice with a wet bar and sitting area. The shower and toilet being across the hall from each other was weird at first but the shower was really nice with the traditional and rainshower heads. The bed was standard and this room came with a balcony with two chairs and views of some of the activity going...

Great staff, nice size rooms and great location. Walking distance to restaurants, bars and clubs. Checking in and out was painless. The hotel atmosphere was very pleasant. 10 minutes from Coronado Island and 7 minutes from USS Midway.

Stayed here while attending a conference and was very pleased with the suite i was given and the rest of the facilities. roof terrace was a great place to relax although it was loud music at the weekend, which was ok but may put some people off.

Valet service scraped the bumper of the car. I called them and they said they will call back. We waited but no one called so we were forced to go back and talk to the manager.

Clean,decorated nicely,plenty of amenities and great staff. Ask for assistance to hook up a fire stick and the maintenance man was there. When he couldn't figure out the problem he quickly called for back up and they had figured out the problem.

Great experience overall. We reserved (1) gold suite and (2) standard rooms for (2) nights over the weekend. Check in Friday and check out Sunday. The VIP check in was very easy and efficient. The rooms were clean but some hallways needed service due to spills. The room service was average due to a long wait time after ordering. The...

Was in San Diego on business and stayed at the Hard Rock for two nights. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Room was clean. Some of the stuff is a bit kitschy, but fun to see (i.e. elevator wall coverings that make it look like you are on stage. Proximity to convention center and the rest of the lamplighter district...

Location was perfect. Room was little bit small for our family but everything else met our expectation. Although we didn't get to try, hotel has other nice options to enjoy. I'd stay here next time I'm in San Diego.
