The heartbeat of downtown San Diego. The staff is suoer firendly and accomidating, they really make you feel like a rock star. Be sure to check out float and eat at Nobu. The feel of the hotel is very laid back and inviting. All of the staff rocked, but a special shout out to the ladies and gentlemen in housekeeping for keeping the hotel looking great I will definitley be back!

We stayed for our wedding weekend and had such a great experience. The staff was incredibly helpful and kind, the restaurants and bars were a lot of fun and the room was amazing. We definitely felt like VIPs and the location was perfect - walking distance to everything in Downtown and just a short cab ride away from Balboa Park and other attractions.

The Hard Rock is the only place I stay in San Diego! Ideally located in the heart of the Gaslamp Quarter, the hotel is walking distance to shopping, restaurants, clubs, attractions and the Convention Center. The Hard Rock itself delivers an unforgettable experience from the time you arrive at the valet stand to the time you check out. Everyone is incredibly friendly and accommodating. The little touches (like music playing in the room when you first arrive and complimentary Starbucks coffee in the morning) help to make every stay a little more enjoyable. The gym is top notch and the spa is incredible. The beds and pillows are so comfortable that they make it tough to leave the room at all. Could not love this hotel more!

Awesome location if you are at the Convention Center! Overall, the room was nice. They really do need 1. a mirror in the room, rather than just in the bathroom. 2: they really could use in-room coffee makers, not just 5 bottles of vodka. Also, be aware of the very big parties by the pool. Lots of drinking and scantily clad girls. Plenty of drinking in the hallways.

Room Tip: I would ask for a room NOT overlooking the pool.

My wife and two teenage daughters stayed at this hotel from a Friday through a Monday and overall had a great experience. We found out on Sunday that the hotel sponsors a music event on Sunday afternoon called Intervention. Intervention involves a DJ playing very loud music outdoors around the pool and several hundred people that were not the normal clientele of this hotel. The Sunday Intervention people partied very hard all day and I was somewhat uncomfortable having my children around them. Again, the overall experience including the restaurants and staff was great - I just wish I had known about Intervention Sunday prior to booking the trip.

Hi markgi250, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We're glad you and your family had a great stay overall, but we're sorry that Intervention came as a surprise to you. Our hotel does get more lively over the weekends, and we'll review your feedback with our team to ensure guests are fully aware of what events are going on.

We just spent Saturday and Sunday nights at the Hard Rock along with our 14-month old daughter. While the location was terrific, the atmosphere was not if you are bringing a child or want to relax. There are plenty of other hotels nearby where you can do so. Despite the nice weather, we were not able to sit by the pool at all. It was taken over by the DJ, revelers, etc. I would have enjoyed it 10-years ago, but not now. Icing on the cake...$40 per day to valet.

Very great time. I felt like it was Vegas all within the same block. My family was able to enjoy Intervention Sunday, and club207! The room was awesome over looking the intervention party! The food was good.
