“Perfect location, high price!”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Location is awesome walking distance to the Gaslamp District. Hotel is pricey, booked two suites with two beds and got 1 bed rooms that looked like a regular room not worth the price.. Staff was super nice and friendly

Room Tip: Paid for a suite that looked like a regular, not worth it!

The room was comfortable and well appointed. I regret not taking a bath in the tub that was meant for soaking! The shower was awesome. The beds were a little soft, but not bad. It was a wonderful stay.

The Hotel is a very nice and good looking hotel, the roof top was closed most of the week. The room was very comfortable and modern, the only problem is the aisles to get to the room, there was a permanent smell... Maybe caused by some many drunk people during the weekend.

My husband was at the Esri conference and goes every year. We have stayed all over downtown with Manchester Hyatt our favorite. This year they booked us at the Hard Rock right across from the convention center. I will stay here every time from now on! Staff is super friendly, rooms are very nice, bars and restaurants are reasonable. We went to the pool each day and it was never crowded (mon-Thursday). Best part about this hotel- LOCATION! Just steps away from great restaurants and bars. Had one of the best times we've had and we've been coming to this conference for 15 years!

I was at Hard Rock in March for a work conference. The hotel is right next to the gas lamp district and very easy to get to the convention center, PetCo Park and Aircraft Carrier museum down the street. The hotel had great service and my room was large and spacious. The bathroom felt very modern and the room was quiet. If you drive in there is a large parking garage across the street for about $10-15/day since the hotel ONLY has valet service. The rooftop bar has great views of downtown San Diego with lots of outdoor fire pits, a pool and lively atmosphere if a weekend.

Central location for the convention center, lots of activity in the viscinity. Room was comfy. Bathroom lighting not sufficient to get ready in the morning, showers were mildly warm. Staff was very welcoming and very eager to provide good customer service.

This was our first stay at the Hard Rock San Diego and it was truly exceptional. The hotel is very well maintained and the staff was welcoming and friendly. The Hard Rock will be our hotel of choice for future stays in downtown San Diego.
