We stayed for a week at this hotel in October. Great location and beautiful historic building. We had a room (exchanged thru RCI) that directly faced Gaslamp Square main street. So many great restaurants in walking distance right out your front door. Also walking distance to the water front. We did not even rent a car, walked most places and...

I always stay in the Gaslamp district but this was my first time at the Gaslamp Plaza Suites. They put me up on the 7th floor with great views back to the bay and convention center. The rooms are true suites with big bed, couch that folds out for another bed, flat screen and small wet bar with fridge and...

We enjoyed this hotel a lot. The mini suite we booked was great value and really big. The hotel staff were really friendly and helpful and the location couldn't be better - right in the heart of San Diego, which we thought was a lovely city. Breakfast was a bit on the sparse side, but we found great places to...

Clean, comfortable room. Fridge and coffee maker. Walking distance to conference centre. Friendly service. Continental breakfast was a little simple/ boring, could be better with eggs or pancake/waffle maker...esp when staying there for 6 mornings, lol Tub could use an update, nice and large...but grout was very worn and needs a refresh.

The hotel itself is lovely - the staff are friendly, and the rooms are nice. It's a historical building which makes it unique, but poses a certain problem. The hotel is located in the heart of the Gaslamp District, which has a lot of nightlife. We stayed here on a Thursday and Friday night and it was by far the...

Dear Guest, Thank you for reviewing your stay with us. I appreciate you acknowledging our staff and guest rooms. I am sorry to hear you were bothered by the noise outside. In regards to the "drummer" that we had sitting outside of our building, that is a new addition to the many different "entertainments" we have in the Gaslamp Quarter....

It's definitely a vintage hotel and that's what we wanted. The hotel room was clean and the continental breakfast on the roof was amazing with a great view. The nightlife around the hotel was full of energy with many restaurants and activities. The front desk was extremely friendly and very helpful. This is a great location. We rode Uber cars...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review and feedback. Yes, the standard rooms are smaller in size and equipped with a full or a queen size bed.

We visited the Gaslamp District for a good dinner, outside seating, and a fun evening of people watching. We booked a room at Gaslamp Plaza Suites because it looked charming, had a nice rooftop seating area, and because the one room we had seen previously was nice. But what we had seen before was not the "standard" room. What we...

Dear valued guest, We are very sorry that you were not happy with your room. We are a boutique property and were at one time an office building so therefore we have many room type options. We try to value each type appropriately starting with the standard and up to our large and spacious 1 bedroom suites. Please contact us...

The location is exceptional. Perfect spot to walk about Gaslamp and gd proximity to Horton Plaza. Staff particularly make this a great place. Many have years invested that you don't ordinarily see in the hospitality industry. What I appreciate is the ownership understands "treat your staff fairly and they will in turn reciprocate with great service for the customer" sounds...
