It is a nice setting with lots of music parafernalia but there are some aspects I did not like although the rooms are nice. It is not a very "warm" hotel in the sense of a very cold design. I was on the 12th floor (top) and was bothered at night by the heavy equipment on the roof (probably air...

Thanks for staying and for leaving your review. It's great that our location near the Gaslamp District worked well for you! We're sorry about the rooftop noise, and we're glad we had the opportunity to make that better with a new room while you were here. We'll definitely pass your comments about our All Access Pass along to our staff...

I was very happy with my stay. Great customer service, their response time was very fast. The food was also exceptional. The rates are kind of high, but I can see why. I would to see if their is some type of members package where I could earn discounted rates.

Robbie mandagie was the icing on the cake for our stay at the hard rock. Not only did he go above and beyond for us at check in, but he is extreamly personable and efficient. The accommodations were awesome, we enjoyed our peace and quiet and would recommend your hotel to our friends!

From the moment we pulled up at the valet we were impressed with the service and accommodations. The staff was very knowledgeable and approachable. The location is terrific, central to all of SD points of interest and lots of bars/restaurants in walking distance.

The biggest problem was the noise from the street. I had a 7th floor room facing the trolley and all night and very early morning listen to the noise from the street and my sleep was terrible. Definitely needs much better insulating windows. The room was clean but the shampoo bottle in the shower had water and not shampoo?? Even...

Happy Birthday! Thanks for the amazing review! We're happy your suite exceeded your expectations! After a long day and night of entertainment, that 'Sleep Like A Rock' bedding is a perfect way to end the night don't you think? Thanks again for the stellar review. All of us at the Hard Rock Hotel San Diego hope you come back soon!...

Booked a room online for myself and 3 other friends many years ago. However when we got there the hotel had double booked the room. Fortunately for our group the hotel let us stay in the Black Eyed Peas Suite at no extra charge! Good times in and in a great area of San Diego gaslamp.
