I have stayed at the Gaslamp Plaza twice and thoroughly enjoyed my experience both times. The hotel is clean, the staff extremely friendly and helpful and the cost was reasonable. I stayed in the single bed studio for one trip when I was traveling alone and in a suite when I traveled with a guest and both rooms were spacious, comfortable, clean, and offered just what I needed for the occasion. The single bed studio was a snug fit but still very comfortable, larger than I expected and the room included a desk, closet, microwave, fridge.
In the heart of downtown, and walking distance to shopping, restaurants, Little Italy and more, the Gaslamp Plaza is in a wonderful, central location. The hotel rooftop which is open until 11: 00 pm is a unique feature and a great place to take advantage of the complimentary breakfast, read, relax or simply take in the view.
Internet costs $10/day which was reasonable. Valet parking was $28/day, while somewhat pricey, was very convenient and I was able to come and go as I pleased without worrying about street parking.
The hotel was offering a discount both times that I stayed there, which made the cost reasonable for me. Without the discount it would not have been in my personal budget but I would definitely consider the hotel worth the full price cost.
The noise level is what you would expect from a hotel located in a downtown area - i.e. typical traffic noise but not unordinarily loud.
The only thing I felt was missing was on an premise workout room. There are gyms within walking distance that they recommend and there's plenty of walking to do visiting San Diego but nothing is available within the hotel.
I would definitely recommend the Gaslamp Plaza Suites to anyone visiting San Diego!
