Hard Rock Hotel San Diego
Ranked #32 of 286 Hotels in San Diego
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 December 2013

Service, cleanliness, and rooms were wonderful. Sitting by the fire pits at night and meeting new people was fun. Definately a party hotel but the staff was quick to remove those who were disruptive to themselves or other guests of the hotel. Location was great. Lots of shopping and restaurants within walking distance of the hotel.

Stayed for 2 nights whilst on holiday in California, rooms were fantastic and upto the standard you should expect from Hard Rock hotels. The location is perfect, tight at the bottom of Gaslamp. Inside the hotel there are several clubs/bars which are worth checking out. We didn't get a chance to check out the pool.
Valet parking was very expensive but there is a secure car park behind the hotel which was much more reasonable.

This was once again a great experience filled with lots of fun times at their bars 207 and float! By far one of the best party hotels in Downtown SD. Keep up the great work and I will definitely be back during my next visit to the downtown area.

Food and room layout was excellent.. Disappointed the roof top bar was closed and we were not told this when booking/upon arrival.. Great location and friendly staff but some improvement needed in the Maintenance and house cleaning etiquette.

Spent 1 night as part of honeymoon. As soon as you enter you get the rock star vibe. We were upgraded to a suite and it was sweet. They ask your favorite style of music so when you get to your room that music is pumping throughout. Nice touch. Each room had a TV. Bed was comfortable. Couch was comfortable. Location is across street from Petco Park and convention center. Couldn't askf or better location. Dozens of places to eat and drink within 10 minutes. Had breakfast at Mary Jane's. Food was great. The price was fitting for the very large portions. Self-park a block away.

Very cool, funny hotel. Personalized music in your room. Friendly staff, comfortable rooms. Best part is the location. Literally at the Gaslamp quarter sign. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others!

ok, so what was a minor misunderstanding over 40 dollars, has now escalated to me now to a total dissatisfaction with the customer service at this property. Considering our large group stayed thre for 5 days and spent a TON of money on rooms, conference rooms, alcohol, food etc -- the fact they are being so ridiculous over 40 is baffling, but what irks me is the fact that no one is polite or offering to help us, the 5 people we have dealt with have been rude, indifferent and happy to push us off to someone else. so sadly -- I will never stay here again, or recommend this property -- there are other great hotels in this area.!

Room Tip: surprisingly the rooms in the middle of the chaos are quiet.
