“Quality Place - fun too!”
Reviewed 8 July 2012

We've always enjoyed the Hard Rock Cafe and were intrigued to stay at one of their hotels. We were not disappointed. The hotel is very modern and packed with music memorabilia. We stayed on "THE WHO" floor and were glad to see that hotel guests were required to use their room key to access guest room floors. Good security with it being right on the Gas Lamp Quarter. Our room and view were spectacular! There was a great little restaurant/coffee shop on first floor as well as a night club. It is also the home of Nobu restaurant. Walk out the side door and you walk right into the Gas Lamp district. Tons of shops and restaurants, bars and pubs. Easy to get around the area and especially fun at night. The pool at the hotel is VERY small and VERY crowded - there is a cool bar which you can sit at and it's really nice. Wish the pool had been larger. Over all it was a great place to stay and we'd definitely visit again. If you are in town for the convention center - it's across the street - so is public transportation.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the ocean side, higher up.

Stay for three night over the fourth of July celebrations
Hotel was busy we booked a woodstock suite we checked in and where pointed to the elevators and went to the Woodstock floor couldn't, find our room asked at the pool bar ..no you need the twelfth floor ...
Room was ok but still had confetti on the floor from the last guests. Tv didn't, work so had to get them to sort it out
Radio alarm didn't work nor did the phone and the lights in the bathroom where faulty.reported these to the management and thought they would be fixed.. Had to report the same faults 24 hours later finally got them fixed
The hotels is in a good location but is very very over priced the car parking is an extra $45 per night. There are much better hotels in the area and I wish we had picked one of them

Booked a suite for a bachelor party. Staff were great at check in, room was exceptional, and the hotel facilities are excellent. Partied at the rooftop bar (closes at 1.30?) and ate in the restaurants, everything was great. It is a pricey hotel but if you want a good place to have fun this is it.

Great location in San Diego, you can walk everywhere. Our room was located by the door on the fourth floor which was not good. We heard people coming in at all hours of the night being very loud! Otherwise, a lovely place and we would definitely stay here again, I would ask for a room away from the door.

I booked a twin suite for my sister's bachelorette party and from arrival the service was extremely friendly. When we got to our rooms we were all surprised at how beautiful and clean the room was. Not only that, but we had a balcony and an awesome view of the pool. We also had bottle service at the club 207 and again, everyone was very helpful and friendly. We had so much fun at the club! The music was awesome, the atmosphere was fun!!! I definitely recommend this hotel for any one looking to stay in downtown San Diego!!!
