Elaine and Reggie greeted us with open arms and made us feel like our wish was their command... so cool!... It was a crazy weekend there and they were super...

Thank you Elaine for making our first impression of Hard Rock Hotel, well, impressive! I will staying there again! The rooms are very nice. We stayed at a standard queen room. I should have upgraded though. They seem a bit small. Service was excellent! Can't say enough about that.

With the exception of our valet and two pool bar bartenders the staff here are young, inexperienced and in some cases downright rude. We couldn't get service at all in the main bar 207. We prepaid for the trip, including all fees, but were charged an additional "mandatory resort fee" upon checkout for amenities we did not ask for or...

Stayed here for a conference. This was a perfect place to stay because it was literally across the street from the convention center. No cabs needed, everything was in walking distance! I loved how Gaslamp had a mixture a shopping, and great restaurants nearby. In regards to the staff, they were very accommodating to my needs, with very little wait...

Great location. Easy access and walking distance to Gaslamp and Embarcadero. Small but efficient room. Staff was great...very friendly and attentive. Rooftop patio is a nice place to unwind by the fire with a local brew.

Our stay was excellent !! Check in was fast. Our room was outstanding !! Very clean and great layout. Location is great for taking in the Gaslamp Quarter. You can walk to wherever you want to go. My advise is to use Uber rather than taxi !! A lot cheaper !! Would stay here again.

If you're young and want a party vibe this is the hotel for you. The rooms are very modern and dark. On weekends the hotel can get very crowded and be very loud late into the night because of people drinking and partying. Its located right at entrance to the gaslamp district. Endless amount of bars and restaurants right out...

Just got here last night but flew in late and was treated by a very friendly and helpful front desk agent named Olivia. She took the time to accommodate my requests and went through the many features of the property's offerings. Was nice to meet a friendly face after a long trip... great job.

If you are attending a conference and getting reimbursed, then stay here for your meeting, its only a 5 minute walk to the convention center. Also, location good for Gaslamp restaurants.
