Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego is perfectly located in the middle of the gaslamp district. Visiting during COVID, none of the restaurants or bars were open in the hotel, though the pool was open and you could bring your drinks. Housekeeping wasn't available during our stay for safety reasons, which I understood, so keep that in mind. The complimentary bicycles were a nice service which we took advantage of. Lots of places to see on bicycles. They even supply bike locks so you can still explore (or hit a happy hour) on foot. I would have liked to experience what the hotel could fully offer and would definitely book here again.

      The Hard Rock Hotel has some pros and cons about this hotel when you come in the hotel you will feel welcome and has some amazing creative styles. The view of the hotel was nice you could see the people in the patio and also to the pool with a city view. Valet people are very cool and will give you a recommendation to places you would like to go. But the cons are that when you go to the pool/patio you needed to buy food first to get alcoholic drinks, also when getting into the pool you would see a lot of bugs in the water, also towels are already used up so bring ur own towel. For the hotel I would give it a 6/10
