Spent my birthday week at this hotel. Awesome pool, great location and atmosphere. Additional parking is just across the street for $15 per day otherwise valet parking is $45 per day. Their hotel staff always friendly and helpful. PETCO park just a hop and a slip away for those that want to catch a ballgame. Would recommend and stay here... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on our honeymoon. Check in was quick and efficient. We were upgraded free of charge to one of their suites which was amazing! They also brought up some delicious chocolate dipped strawberries and prosecco- a lovely touch! The room was spotless and with excellent views over the bay. Hotel location was great for exploring...

The Hard Rock Hotel is a very nice hotel with all the amenities San Diego's Gaslamp District has to offer. If you want to run you can do a 5K by running outside of the hotel down to the carriers, around the marina, across the bridge to Petco Park and then to the hotel. The Convention Center is across the... More

Disappointed with the check in, room not ready and very little effort to get it ready. Waited over 2 hours, past 4pm. No apology or even an offer of a drink while waiting. Lack of obvious concierge services also very poor. Room fittings seem cheap and nasty, ikea would be better. TV very slow, feels old, poor selection of channels... More

Overall, my stay was as good as anyone would expect of a hotel (the room was clean, service and staff were friendly and professional, noise pollution from the club on the ground level and street traffic didn't make its way to the room). My only complaint, and this is hardly the hotel's responsibility, was that road closures over the weekend... More

Clean fun and close to everything. We had a convention for about 200 people and it went off very well. The food was great, try the quinoa scramble in the AM. The hotel is located right next to the ballpark, the convention center and the ferry to Corona del Mar are just a step away. Excellent walking along the harbor... More
