The location can't be beat. The convention center is right across the street. It is in the heart of the Gaslamp District, and the waterfront is just beyond the convention center. The rooms are very modern, as you would expect. I believe all rooms are considered mini suites. Which means you have a very small bar area. There is a...

I stay at the Hard Rock in downtown San Diego at least 5 times per year. The service is exceptional from check-in to check-out. My suite is always clean and in perfect order. I ate dinner with a group at Nobu, which is one of the best restaurants in San Diego. I look forward to my next stay.

-Location is terrific for the Convention Center, Gaslamp District or Petco Park. -Vibe is Hard Rock fun and the staff is very nice (Carly and Nick at the desk). Rooms are chic, sexy and hip but definitely not for booking with family or non-couples. The suite with a living room and bedroom is divided by the bathroom sink, shower with...

Great room great service. Very attentive staff. I'm coming back for sure. Room service was right on time, valets were very professional and informative. Front desk on point. If you have a bad experience here it must be you and your bad attitude.

Stay was good, hotel was cool. It's very modern and upscale. Actually may have been a bit too cool for us! But we had a good stay nonetheless. We had a good rate but hotel can be on the pricey end because of location. Great for wanting to stay in gaslamp quarter and walking that area. Trevor at the front...

We loved this hotel for a weekend with our teenagers. The music memorabilia, pictures, and quotes were fun, and we all enjoyed the location, rooftop pool, and vibe. The $45 parking fee can be avoided by parking at the meters on the street or the parking structure behind the hotel.
