The location, facilities and staff of the is hotel are absolutely wonderful! I would go back in a heartbeat, no questions asked. Wish the pool area was bigger but even at that it felt very comfortable.

A quick last minute trip to San Diego and booked the room on the deive down. Antonio helped us at check in and was very helpful and accommodating. We had some trouble with our reservation and he surely helped. The hotel and ro was nice, but had the worst night sleep. I recommend anyone that wants to go to bed...

We came in town for the Dodgers /Padres game. This was the perfect location. The rooms were nice. The only thing was that the housekeeping was still cleaning rooms at 4pm and empty bottles were left outside of our door.

Hi awhiteproduction, thanks for staying with us for the baseball game and we are glad you loved staying a block away from Petco Park! Housekeeping may clean rooms a little later if we are extremely busy and are at high occupancy.

Our company had an event here for 300 employees - The hotel staff was extremely helpful and the atmosphere conducive to an high-energy event for all of us. The location can't be beat for convenient access to great restaurants and attractions. Planning on staying here again and recommending it for future company events again as well.

I've been to gas lamp area many times and the Hard Rock is by far the best location for the convention center but also for going to a baseball game! We enjoyed their service and hospitality! John and Christie were awesome. I won't stay anywhere else!

I arrived in San Diego very early and went straight to the hotel to try and check in, despite a lot of looking the front desk staff were unable to help and advised me that check-in was't until 4pm (quite late from my experience and hence why a 4 instead of 5). They did phone me a few hours later...

The hotel was great! Located right in the middle of all the action, the pool party on Saturday was a blast and the staff was great! The views from the balcony were awesome, overlooking the pool and from my friends room there was a great view of Petco Park. The rock royalty host John behind the front desk was great....
