I booked a suite at the Hard Rock San Diego for my husbands 50th birthday Christmas Day 2015. I could not have made a better choice! We come to San Diego a few times a year and have stayed at many hotels, most with a 4 or 5 star rating. They all pale in comparison with our recent Hard Rock...

The Service and Accommodations were great as always. The location is fantastic. It adds a great ambience being able to view the memorabilia throughout the hotel. We will be staying here every time we travel to San Diego.

Travelled with spouse and 2 older teenage kids and got 2 rooms: 1 with 2 Queen beds, one with a King. The hotel is clean, updated and the staff is genuinely courteous, friendly and accommodating.

The hotel is directly across the railroad tracks from the Convention Center, which is perfect for an exhibitor, either running late or just tired after a day exhibiting. Loads of restaurants in area. Positives: Very friendly staff, and bellhops hail a cab quickly. Basic room is nice with enough room to relax. Loaded with every sort of electric connection desired....

We spent another Christmas here and enjoyed it again with a little caveat: the pool was closed for renovation for our entire stay... No need to say it was a huge disappointment for our 3-year old son. As the Hard Rock Hotel did not warn us ahead of time, we had talked about the swimming pool for weeks. Imagine the...

We stayed here over my husband's birthday. Part of our room package included the valet cost, which was great. No cost to park in downtown San Diego?! Sweet! Everyone was helpful. We spent a portion of the night in the lounge and the 90's cover band was very entertaining. My husband ordered a whiskey at the bar and it probably...
