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

Great experience!

The quality and design of the hotel is incredible. It's very modern and chic. My friend and I went to the padres game which was super close to the hotel so it worked out perfect. The only downfall is my friend found a pincher bug in our room, I found a half eaten cheeto in our room, and the pool smelled. Otherwise this hotel was amazing! We went to float and 207 and the bartenders were super friendly and hospitable.

Had an awesome time at Hard Rock Hotel-San Diego

The hotel's perfectly located at the beginning of the Gaslamp Quarter. It's across the street from the convention center and one block away from the Padre stadium. When you first walk in, you realize that no expense was spared in its hip, modern decor. All of the staff from Alex the bellman to Derrick M. the guest services mgr were really nice and helpful. All of the rooms are cool, but you get what you pay for. There was a problem with my reservation, which Derrick fully resolved beyond my expectations. We had such a good time in the hotel bars that we barely made it out of the hotel to check out the neighborhood. The bars, DJs, and overall experience are glamorous and Socal laid back at the same time. I have only one criticism, which echoes what others have said on here- if you're looking for a hotel to have wholesome family time with young children, this isn't it. If you have older kids or are on your own to base a night of partying, look no further. As the night goes on, the lobby will be full of party-goers and the elevators full of drunk folks. If you're one of them, you won't mind.

This was a great experience!

The room itself was top shelf with very luxurious bed, great TV and media hookups, large bathroom with all of the amenities. The location was fantastic for me with a very short walk to Petco park, the convention center, the theatre, great restaurants and best of all the yogurt place.
