Located in the historic Gaslamp Quarter, at the epicenter of San Diego nightlife, the Hard Rock is turning up the volume. Where rock star service meets urban chic design with every amenity, the perfect antidote to the elitist boutique hotel or plain vanilla resort experience.

Although Hard Rock Hotel is conveniently located to all attractions, activities and part spots, there is little reason to leave the hotel. At Nobu San Diego, world-renowned and famously acclaimed Nobu Matsuhisa brings his signature nouveau Japanese cuisine to the city's culinary-scape. Two ultra hip bars: 207 lobby bar and Float, the rooftop pool bar and lounge. For more casual fare, Maryjane's Coffee Shop is Hard Rock Hotel San Diego's signature restaurant serving up fun style, fresh attitude and food without rules.

The 420 room hotel, including 176 suites (one designed by the Black-Eyed Peas), also features 300-thread-count cotton Sleep Like a Rock Star linens, custom-designed furniture, state-of-the-art lighting, m-bar (a greenroom inspired refreshment center) and sensually-styled bathrooms featuring ceiling-mounted rain showers. In-room amenities include an integrated video and sound system including 42" LG flat screen HD TVs, wired and wireless Internet access, extensive satellite TV access, video on-demand, video games and Jack Pack technology that allows plug-and-play access from your personal audio player (iPod or MP3), video camera, notebook computer or portable gaming system to the media hub. Seventeen individually designed Rock Star suites allow guests to experience life behind the velvet ropes to the utmost.

And when guests need to download and relax, Rock Spa offers and exquisite menu featuring specialty treatments like Love Potion No. 9, the ultimate couple's spa experience. The adjacent Fitness Center is fully equipped with state-of-the-art cardio and weight training equipment and is accessible to guests 24/7.

The 4th floor, outdoor rooftop pool also provides a uniquely swanky escape for guests staying at the hotel. Private cabanas outfitted with chaise lounges, mini-fridge, LCD flat screen and MP3 hookups are available for daily rental.

The In-Charge includes: Toll free, local and domestic long distance calling, in-room wired and wireless high speed internet access, unlimited access to 24/7 fitness center, Daily USA Today newspaper and The San Diego Union Tribune on Saturday/Sunday.

100% Non Smoking Hotel. There is a $250 Fee for smoking in the sleeping rooms. Valet parking only is available for $45/night.

Weekend traveler? If you book a stay over the weekend and plan to go to 207 the lobby bar or Float the pool bar, please contact the hotel's Concierge to reserve priority admittance into either one of the bars (Registered guests only). You must get your name on the list by 8:00pm day-of and then admittance with front of the line access will be held until 10:00 pm the night of reservation. If you choose not to put your name on the list or arrive after 10:00 pm, hotel cannot guarantee admittance.

Great San Diego Hotel!

Hard Rock is a great one stop hotel for those of you looking for a weekend get-a-way. The resturaunts are wonderful, Nobu and the Cafe. There are 2 clubs/lounges, pool is beautiful and the rooms are modern and spacious. Will stay here again in the near future. Highly recommended for couples and groups of friends. Also, check out the spa for some R&R.

Amazing!r

We had a wonderful time. Loved the hot tub and pool, as well as the rain shower. We were close to everywhere we needed to get, there was no need to rent a vehicle. Tons of night life, as well as day time entertainment around and inside the hotel. Great experience, friendly staff.

Rock Out

The hotel was everything we expected and even better! The staff was excellent and the room was amazing. We had a great time. Would definitely stay there again. You are a $15 cab ride from the airport and right in the middle of all the action.

Great place!

I was in town for a conference at the convention center and the location could not have been better. Close to tons of restaurants and shopping. I checked in on Sunday which was crazy because of the pool party but didn't affectme at all. I would stay here again for sure.

Perfect location!

The hotel is right outside the Gaslamp District. Everything was walking distance- no need to drive!. The valet was a little pricey at $35.00, but it was nice that we didn't have to drive. The rooms were very cool looking and the view was nice as well. We loved it!

excellent hotel

This hotel is really amazing. It is located in a beautiful district called HISTORIC HEART OF SAN DIEGO. It have rock&roll music everywhere. But the music is not cloud, made me comfortable and excited. The room is totally silent. Everything is wonderful in this hotel. They have free gym, spa and wi-fi. Also,they displayed guitars, drums and performing clothes used by famous singers. The bar is also wonderful.
