The Keating is a small, 35-room hotel in the center of the Gaslamp Quarter of downtown San Diego. Designed by Pininfarina (read: Ferrari and Maserati) and opened in 2007, the hotel prides itself on its unconventionality and caters to people with active lifestyles. Brick + Mortar restaurant within the property offers varieties of mouth-watering cuisine, served in a casual ambiance with nightly live DJ's. The Keating also offers meeting facilities and in-room couple's massage and aromatherapy. The property also offers complimentary entry to PCD Dollhouse.


Rooms
The 35 luxurious 'stanzas' (guest rooms) and suites feature customized furnishings, such as spacious closets, ergonomic chairs, and custom-design beds by Pininfarina. Many aspects of the 1890s building, like mahogany fittings and stainless steel, remain. The loft-style rooms feature no interior walls: the traditional bathroom/bedroom division is replaced by an open floor plan. Resin and concrete floor treatments eliminate the need for carpeting. Expansive ceilings and the building's original exposed brick walls complement the decoration.


Highlights
  • Cutting-edge, Pininfarina-designed boutique hotel in a listed, historic 1890s building

  • Located in the vibrant Gaslamp Quarter near San Diego's major attractions and entertainment venues

  • Fine dining, Italian wine collection and exclusive wine tastings from local wineries

NY style in San Diego

The hotel reminded me of NYC hotels- built in 1890 but renovated into a hip, modern hotel. Rooms are small but cozy and stocked with top of the line, TV and CD system (Bang & Olufsen).

Night was ok...

This hotel was...ok...I was expecting the hotel to be nicer, but I guess I shouldn't expect a whole lot for the amount...$175/night. There's no shower doors, you can clearly hear transportation (buses, train, and any ambulances). There isn't a place to eat breakfast, as the hotel's restaurant does not open till 5 pm. Although, there are great restaurants surrounding the area, and it's best to go out and about to see the surrounding areas anyway. Valet was incredibly slow. The check-in staff are pretty unenthusiastic about being there. However, on the good side, the bed was very comfortable, and the sheets were so soft. The expresso machine is a nice touch, but it would've been nice to have a little instructional place card. Overall, the experience was ok. Nothing to really rave about, but nothing very negative either.
