Hip hotel with nightlife and music history

Even the on-site sushi restaurant, Nobu San Diego, is chic.

Highlights
  • Two choices for unbeatable nightlife
  • Stellar views from the rooftop pool deck
  • Relax in the full-service spa
  • Nobu San Diego serves fresh sushi seven days a week

It was alright, nothing fancy

Some of the staff were really nice, others not so much. The room was small for a "studio", however, it's location was wonderful! I wouldn't return unless the price was too good to pass up! The check-in was late (4pm) and the check-out was early (11am), not a fan of either, it doesn't take 5 hours to clean a room.

Hard Rock made our experience in San Diego awsome!

we loved the hotel, the restaurants, the staff!!! The only thing is that since it´s a green hotel we called to get our room cleaned, and they never came!!! But it was nothing compared with the rest of the stay!

For the young

Nice hotel, quick Valet, awesome shower, nice gym, comfy bed. Location is prime if you want Gaslamp or access to Petco Park. The TV had some issues and the room was pretty loud as it was above the bar area but overall a pretty good place!

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Eat at Filippes but go early since the wait can get to be very long! Skip Extraordinary Desserts - it's over priced and not very good actually.

Maybe not worth the price

VERY expensive and did'nt get much bang for the buck. Website made the hotel look a lot nicer than it really was. A little disappointing, but the staff was great.

Weekend getaway

We had a nice stay at this hotel. The location is perfect. We came for our friend's birthday party. The only thing we didn't like was the food at Mary Jane's. We come to SD a couple of times a year. Definitely going to stay here again!

four star prices for a two star hotel

the hotel is overpriced but in a decent location. The service was OK. Overall it appears as if they are trying to be a trendy hotel but failing miserably
