We had to leave early as our kid got sick. They were very accommodating. They didn't charge us for the rest of our stay inspite of the short notice, and even got us some breakfast on the house for the kid - and he loved it! We'll be back here soon :)

This is a great hotel. The staff are wonderful and helpful. I suggest a trip to their wonderful spa. The only downside, the rooms aren't sound proof. So if you are like me and have the misfortune of staying at the same time as inconsiderate guess, who have no problem yelling in the hall ways at all hours, your not...

I booked a suite at the Hard Rock San Diego for my husbands 50th birthday Christmas Day 2015. I could not have made a better choice! We come to San Diego a few times a year and have stayed at many hotels, most with a 4 or 5 star rating. They all pale in comparison with our recent Hard Rock...

The hotel is directly across the railroad tracks from the Convention Center, which is perfect for an exhibitor, either running late or just tired after a day exhibiting. Loads of restaurants in area. Positives: Very friendly staff, and bellhops hail a cab quickly. Basic room is nice with enough room to relax. Loaded with every sort of electric connection desired....
