Went to HRSD for our 15th anniversary last week on a promo package (free parking, access pass and $50 mini bar). From the valet, check in (Kathy)and concierge it was awesome. Rod set us up with a reservation at Nobu which is inside the hotel. Our room had the view of the bay which was epic. The staff were exceptionally...

Great king room Design of room, layout is outstanding. Clean Modern Room decor feels Rock star. Tried to pipe in music from their App (per their offer) but the app is crap. Not intuitive. Shower great, lots of hot water, 2 waterfall heads.

We stayed here during the AAOS and the town was jam packed. Ryan keithley is the director of events here: and we were so happy have him as our coordinator. He is so charming and efficient. It all went very well and we can't wait to see Ryan again

So we were in San Diego for a conference and you can't beat the location of the Hard Rock. Plus Nobu is in the Lobby!!!! That said our room, the rockstar suite, was old, tired and dirty. The rug was stained with what i can only guess was liquor and puke. I asked to have it cleaned, replaced or removed...

We stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel with our high school aged kids. They loved the amenities, location that is close to baseball, shopping, and cool restaurants. I would not recommend for families with younger kids.

I don't always associate Hard Rock, with "Really Nice," but I'm pleased to say that it was exactly that. Taking a last minute Tuesday getaway with my wife we travelled down the coast to San Diego. Parking in the gaslamp we decided to walk to some of the surrounding hotels to see which offered the best deal and accommodations. Well...
