"Great hotel close to main Gas Lamp"
This hotel was a great experience. The entire hotel is modeled after a late 1800s early 1900s decor. Just an old throwback feel with modern technology.

Best Western Plus Hacienda Hotel Old Town

"Magical hotel with views and character"
This place is out of a storybook: full of flowers, light, arches, atmosphere. The views are outstanding and it is a hotel that, on many levels (literally!), feels very much in touch with its lush surroundings - beautiful balconies and outdoor spaces everywhere and windows that open. I found the staff to be warm and friendly, including housekeeper (Ana) who was especially helpful. I would definitely stay here again if I were in San Diego.

Residence Inn by Marriott San Diego Downtown/Gaslamp Quarter

356 6th Avenue, San Diego - Map
 
 
"Great experience"
We stayed at the residence inn while attending a conference. The hotel staff was very courteous. Always opening doors and greeting us when we returned. There was always someone at the front to help unload luggage from the cab or to hail a cab for you. The room was nice, nothing over the top, but clean and modern. The mini kitchen is really nice, especially in our situation traveling with our infant son.

"Perfection in the heart of San Diego"
From the moment I checked in at the Hampton Inn in downtown San Diego until I checked out 5 days later,the staff was extremely helpful in recommending places to eat as well as directions and suggestions for activities in the San Diego area. My room was quiet and the bed was extremely comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and had good choices. Free coffee and Ice water were available for guests on a 24 hour basis. The staff from desk clerks to cleaning staff were outgoing and unusually friendly. As a result, one felt "at home." Being within walking distance to all the downtown sights was a plus. I would return here without hesitation and certainly would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting San Diego.

"Great location, nicely updated"
We've stayed at this hotel a number of times before. The location is perfect, adjacent to Balboa Park and either a short walk up to Hillcrest or a slightly longer walk downtown. The downside to this property had always been the very dated rooms and interior amenities. So we were pleasantly surprised to see that the rooms have been recently upgraded, with new bedding, furniture, kitchens, bathrooms & climate control. The best place to stay in San Diego if you want to do stuff in the Hillcrest/Balboa Park area.

"A wonderful experience!"
From check in to check out, the staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming. The building itself is older,and filled with charm. The elevators are historical with plaques explaining their importance. The rooftop view is stunning, especially at night. There are plenty of restaurants and coffee houses within walking distance. I have already highly recommended this hotel!

The US Grant - A Luxury Collection Hotel

"History and luxury and a great location"
The 1920-built, thoroughly renovated US Grant (developed by the President's son) is steps away from both the downtown business area and the Gaslight District. It is also directly across the street from the upscale Horton Plaza mall. Rooms are spacious with high ceilings and top quality details. The public areas are all gleaming marble with period details. The staff is consistently warm and efficient.
