The hotel was nice and the staff was great. Problem was being so close to the street in the hotel room. It was pretty loud with cars and bikes transporting people with music right outside the hotel. Didn’t really quiet down until about 2 am when the bars closed. If you are looking to party, it’s a great location, otherwise, I might suggest something further away from Gaslamp Quarters.

It’s a great place to stay. Close to surrounding activities, shops, restaurants, and night life. The service at the hotels restaurant was extremely slow. Was disappointed that the pool didn’t reopen after the pool party.

As an Expedia Gold status member, I was guaranteed a late checkout.The hotel would not honor this perk even though I showed them in writing. Also, I booked the hotel because they had a pool fo rmy 6 year old granddaughter to swim. Th epool was close dfrom noon - 6:00 because of an adult-only pool party. After the party we went to swim and ithe water and pool area was so dirty and disgusting we could ot use it. The rate should have been reduced since the pool was not available.The room was clean and comfortable, and the location is excellent, but I was very disapointed with our overall eperience at the Hard Rock, San Diego. A business should always honor its committment to its customers.

The property in nice but our room had water damage on the carpet, when I told the manager Burke i thought perhaps they would exchange our room but since i booked with Expedia they couldn't do anything. The room was damped unpleasant and muggy. Overall, unsatisfied only because I booked with Expedia
