Really pleasantly surprised with the entire experience. Great service, beautiful rooms and incredible music art throughout the property. Having a guitar delivered to my room to jam on was a huge bonus!

Well managed, fun place. The room and floor I stayed in were a bit run down as every surface seemed to be showing some wear; serviceable but not impressive. The room did have a balcony, which is a very nice thing to have in beautiful San Diego. Would stay there again largely as the staff does such a great job,...

Stayed here for a company conference. Had no idea there was a Hard Rock here, but will seek them out for future trips. They have some cool perks, like setting the music for your room upon check-in and giving you the opportunity to check-out about 20 different guitars and take them to your room. This hotel is also right next...

We were celebrating my girlfriend's birthday with an overnight stay in San Diego. I had a couple of special requests for our stay which the hotel was able to accommodate. Everyone at the Hard Rock (Valets, Concierge, Bellhops, Bar staff) was very friendly and welcoming. They made us feel like VIPs! I travel frequently and it was one of, if...

Love the location of this Hard Rock right in the heart of downtown San Diego! You can walk to the convention center, the harbor, Padres game and a ton of restaurants. Check in is fast and the staff is super nice. I loved my room and bed is super cozy!

Reservations were made for several people, some of which were shared. When we arrived, I, for one example was paired with another man's wife. It took a bit to get it straightened out. Before checking out, I arranged for the room which I was sharing to be charged to my CC and for the invoice to be emailed to me....

FYI- this review is from a production, CAD set designer, technical director, and business owner perspective: Guest rooms- average and in-line with an Embassy Suites. Not as clean as I would hope. Bring your own wake-up call! Bring your own water! Bar- dirty glasses, food was average bar food. Great location- Tin Fish across the street. Awesome fish tacos! Coffee...

Stayed here for two nights pre-cruise. The hotel was a perfect spot to get to everything with just a short walk. Right in the gas lamp district with an abundance of shops and restaurants. The rooms were a bit worn and dark and looked almost dirty even though they weren't. Needs some upgrading. Decent stay but only for a short...

Pros: - The room was clean, nothing too fancy except for the music of your choice when you enter. - Self check out was also pretty convenient! - They have a pool party every Saturday and all hotel guests are invited. - The hotel's got its famous hardrock cafe which is a pretty popular spot amongst the locals. - Besides,...
