What a shame that this charming, well located property with large, comfortable rooms, a small kitchenette and friendly staff falls so short of a comfortable place to stay. Couple that with $30 a day to park your car and $11.95 a day for WiFi will lead me to suggest you can do better -- much better! Our annual Guys' Weekend for the NCAA Western Regional Basketball Tournament was in San Diego this year. The Gaslamp Plaza Suites is well located and the rooms are actually large and mostly comfortable. We had an 8th floor room overlooking Fifth Street. When the web site tells you the hotel is centrally located to the Gaslamp Quarter they are correct. What it doesn't tell you is there are bars, clubs and other loud establisments that go full tilt until 3 a.m. I spent two nightsw there listening to loud, obnoxious bar partrons, street cleaners, sirens, and the hip club downstairs in the basement of the hotel. There was no escaping the noise leading to two sleepless nights. Our room was on the 5th Street side with all the noise but our other friends were on the other side of the hotel and they got the club's noises all night long. Adding insult to the entire experience was $30 a day to park my car and internet at $11.95 per 24 hours (which by the way didn't last the full 24 hours before asking me to spend another $11.95). Stay here if you want location -- but don't plan to sleep.
