Well, I'd never stayed in a Hard Rock property. I had meetings in this hotel before and several lunches and happy hours there before. For a middle-aged sales veteran, I can say it felt like Vegas, but without as many distractions. The security was excellent and I witnessed it firsthand when a minor shop lifter was caught red-handed....well done! The...

If you sign up for Hard Rock specials they give you 60 days to save 20% of their room rates. That made the stay competitively priced for a nice hotel. Normally a bit "loud" for my taste with the video music graphics constantly running in the lobby but otherwise pretty quiet. I always hate all the up charges of 25$...

I booked the debut rock star suite for my boyfriends 30th birthday. It was amazing! We have stayed at this hotel a handful of times now and are never disappointed. There's just something special about this hotel and the ambiance that it has. Robbie was great in helping with adding to the experience. He customized the room for my boyfriend...

I had an issue during booking and sent an email to the Reservations email address. No one responded. I sent a followup email several days later and no one responded. After a week, I sent an email to Customer Service, and the same day received a phone call. My issue was resolved, and they upgraded my room. The room upgrade...

Awesome property, awesome staff, and awesome location to everything in the Gaslamp and walking distance to alot of the beach communities.

Even loved chatting with the bartenders at Float and in 207 while having some casual cocktails. We had an...

This hotel is in an ideal location for seeing the GasLamp Quarter and the Bay. Easy walking to all areas from Midway, Petco Park and the Convention Center. The staff is polite and helpful and the rooms are good. (They could use some updating in carpet and use, but clean and convenient). I enjoyed my time in the hotel.

Location, location, location. Right in the heart of the Gaslamp. Great vibe, good scene. Float, 207, Nobu. The best of the best. Stop by and say hello to Robbie in VIP. The best VIP Concierge in the business. These guys really know how to make you feel like Royalty. Rock Royalty that is!

This stay was as per usual excellent experience! This is by far one of the best hotels in DT San Diego for its location and fabulous service. Had an amazing dinner experience at Nobu and my guest room accommodations were awesome. A special thanks to Brady Murray and the entire Rock Royalty staff for always taking great care of us.

I had a great stay at your hotel. I loved the room, the bed, the restaurants and overall facilities. I thought it was especially a nice touch to be able to have a loaner guitar for the duration of the stay. I definitely will recommend your hotel to friends and colleagues.
