Fabulous getaway for the family.

From the moment we arrived we were treated incredibly. We were 5 hours early for check in. The valet staff took care of us immediately. They spoke with the front desk and we're able to help us check in right away. The room was top notch. Very modern and way cool. The entire staff at the Hard Rock treated us like royalty. The hotel could not have been in a better location. Thank you to all that made this weekend one to remember.

Friends get together

The location of the hotel is perfect for for a baseball game and Gaslamp experience. Conveniently located in from of train station. The valet staff was prompt and courteous. At check-in in the front desk staff seemed to rush my check in, being my first time there wish I would have been giving all amenities in hotel. The rooms vents were not working properly, the toilet needed a slight fix, and the noise level from hall way was loud. The housekeeping was excellent and on point when I needed supplies. For the price would not stay here again.

The hotel and location were amazing. All of the shops, restaurants, and go to places were minutes away from the Hard Rock. There's so much to do and so many great amenities at the hotel. I'd come again anytime.

Awesome conference trip

My friends and I stayed at this place this past week for 4 nights. The location was very convenient as most of out meets we're help at the SD convention center. Also, it was surrounded by great restaurents and coffee shops. Pool and rooftop bar was great but it was little over crowed as there was a pool party. Overall, it was a nice hotel with a decent customer service.

Fun, Fun place to go

Best for Adults on the weekends, but I saw a lot of families with their kids and I saw people our age 50+. The young adults were a little cray-cray, but seriously it was nice to see everyone laughing and having a good time. That's what life is about right? We were there for a wedding so we didn't get to enjoy SD too much, but we will be back. Note: the fridge and room is stocked with liquor and snacks....they aren't free...and they are very, very tempting. :)
