Where to start and what to say "is the million dollar question." Plain and simple a fantastic hotel that is unique and certainly out of the typical hotel box. Plenty of room gadgets, divulging shower and comfortable bed. In addition, the restaurant delivered great food and has an interesting menu. We will certainly return! Only Con; Valet parking is steep.... More

I stayed one night - I'd stay again! Lovely pool area & there's a restaurant, Starbucks and evening cocktail lounge all within a reasonable range from the suite elevators. Rooms & hotel in general have a hip yet tasteful decor. I wasn't there for multiple days so my interactions with staff was limited, either way the experience was pleasant. Location... More

The Hard Rock Hotel was awesome, the staff was always super helpful and super friendly. The bikes that were available for rent was one of the highlights of the trip. Being able to rent those free of charge and have them for as long as I wanted was great. I will return to this hotel again and would recommend this... More

My wife and I stayed here 3 nights over the Thanksgiving holidays. The location is great as it is at the entrance to the Gaslamp district. The amenities are nice but the room could have been cleaner. Could have used a good dusting also, you could see where something was sprayed across the armoire door. We packed light for this... More

The room was great, a lot of space and a sweet bed.

The hotel was awesome, clean, and hip. The staff was really helpful. When my credit card was charged though, I discovered a "hidden" fee. There was a $23 fee for All Access Pass that was above and beyond the room rate. I didn't opt in for the pass and I didn't use the pass, which is basically coupons for the... More
