Really big room with a separate living room and great design. Very clean and quiet, too. The staff was friendly and efficient, the pool area was great. The in-house restaurant had a wonderful breakfast menu, and the bar is spacious and welcoming.

The 609 at the Hard Rock Hotel San Diego
I found parking in the area to be very expensive ! There is a garage at 922 Seventh Avenue (only a few short blocks from the hotel). This is the most affordable parking garage in the downtown. $10-25 overnight, depends on the day of the week. The valets at the Hard Rock will let you unload and then drive up Fifth Avenue to Broadway. The garage is at Seventh and Broadway.

I did not. However there are plenty of scooters to rent. You download the ap and pay on the ap. You leave the scooter when you are done.

"Go to another hotel"
"Park at the parking structure behind the hotel. It is so much cheaper and the same thing. Unless you want valet of course."
"Suites are amazing"
"All of the rooms were great, The Diamond Suite was perfect for small work meetings week long."
"Quieter rooms in the winter season"
