Right in the middle of the Fun!

Posted Jun 26, 2014
Pros: Great location, amazing staff, incredible design. The rooms are gorgeous as are the staff ;)
Cons: Unfortunately there was a bit of road construction happening right outside the hotel. This was much more noisy and disruptive than anything else.
Location: Lots of great places to eat, get drinks and shop. Horton Plaza is a two minute walk away. Also within walking distance to Petco Park!
We loved staying at The Keating. However, this is not the hotel for you if you are a light sleeper. It is situated right in the midst of Gaslamp Quarter with tons of pubs, patios and live music all steps away. It is a heritage building so the windows are not double-paned. This is also what we loved about the location! It is close to practically everything - no car needed to go to Petco Park, Seaport Village or to the ferry for Coronado Island. Very walkable! Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful with suggestions.

No lock on the door leading to the hot-tub, could seriously use some paint, could not sleep between the hours of 2100 and 0200 too noisy, never again was not worth what you charged me!

First Visit To Gas Lamp District

Posted Jun 2, 2014
Pros: Everything
Cons: Ice machines would be handy.
Location: Restaurants, live music, shopping, MLB, Midway museum, San Diego Zoo
My wife and I were there for our 30th Anniversary in May 2014. The Keating Hotel is a unique experience, unlike any other hotel I have stayed in. We loved it. That being said it is not your typical hotel. I would say it is not for kids. We are young at heart and understand that the hotel is in the main entertainment area of downtown. The staff treated us like royalty, the bed and shower was wonderful as was the "race car" ambience. Only downfall in my mind was no ice machines. The location is fabulous if you are interested in enjoying the Gas Lamp district restaurants, entertainment or even baseball at Petco. The noise levels are to be expected given the location of the hotel, so if you are here for a restful sleep, you may have made a mistake, but if you are here to enjoy the San Diego Gaslamp district, you will love it.

Great hotel, but be prepared for noise!

Posted May 29, 2014
The hotel is in the middle of everything you could need, but the downside was the noise until 3or 4am! There were also a lot of drunk people outside on the walk back to the hotel. Be prepared to share the outside space with partiers! But the hotel couldn't have been nicer.

Great spot in Gas Lamp

Posted May 8, 2014
Room was very comfortable and clean. Bed was incredibly comfy. Hotel staff seemed inconvenienced at times to help, but the personalized check-in was very cool. Overall it was a fantastic experience, and I would stay here again.

St Patrick's Day Weekend

Great location!

Posted Mar 2, 2014
Great location and the decor was amazing. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. The only negative thing i would say is that the gym was small and it's missing a treadmill.

Great base for the Gaslamp district

Posted Jan 21, 2014 on Hotels.com
Great staff. Cool rooms. Outstanding location for anyone interested in fun in the Gaslamp district. If you want to avoid street noise, go stay at the Hyatt or some other large hotel outside the fun zone. But if you want to be centrally located and part of the "party" this place is perfect. The rooms are small but "intersting" - concrete floor (they give you sandals as a welcome gift) stainless steel counters.
