I have frequently stayed at the San Diego Omni and was disappointed when I saw it was booked for my most recent trip. Remembering that the Hard Rock was close, I decided to give it a shot, and I'm very pleased I did. The staff was incredible (Ernesto at the desk, may have been the most helpful person I've met in all my travels, not just San Diego), and the room was fantastic. I had some room service for breakfast. The service and quality of the food was fantastic. I love the Omni, but I see myse... Read more

No real complaints...clean rooms, cool decoration, staff exceptional, and very friendly. Great music everywhere, no boring elevator music here.

The Hard Rock Hotel is the Best place to stay in San Diego! In the heart of the Gaslamp district. So close to everything! Walking distance to shopping, restaurants and bars. We had breakfast at Maryjane's, Happy Hour at Nobu and of course room service. We stayed in a Suite, it was so spacious and lovely! The staff was so friendly and accommodating! It was our first time staying there but definitely not the last! Already planning our next trip.

Hotel theme was very nice. Room was clean and had all the amenities I could want. Price for food and drink was extremely high though which dropped my score. Our conference runs late so I had to order from the late night menu. Chicken fingers and fries cost me almost $30! This would have easily been a +4 but after a long day at the conference I had to go to Subway every night to save money.

The hotel is ideally situated in the gaslamp quarter. That without doubt is its best feature. It advertises itself as a party hotel and sadly a lot of the fixtures and fittings are showing signs of wear and tear. We had to move rooms twice. The last time in fairness they did upgrade us. Even the upgraded room had a number of problems. Attention to quality and detail was missing. The staff make all the right noises to be helpful but sadly do not deliver on their promises.

The Hard Rock delivers on its promises. It's a very young fit crowd. You see their advertisements of their pool party and think it couldn't be that good. But it was. Unfortunately, and I suppose understandably, money talks. There are couches around the pool on which you can sit but if someone pays to sit on the one you are on then you have to go. This is crass and Vegas-ish.

So we know it was trendy, but didn't have a true understanding of how loud this place can be. When you walk in, there is a DJ playing music in the main lounge. When you get to the elevator, half the time people were half naked going to the forth floor pool. No discretion, they don't promote it. They promote a party life style and that is what you have. Our mistake is that we came here during the weekend. Friday night we heard the door slamming and people in the corridor yelling from one si... Read more

The Conference Center is immaculate, well organized, and has great service. My room in the hotel was old, I had some burnt light bulbs, everything looked worn out, and my bathroom was not very clean. I expected better from a Hard Rock. However, it is in a premier location and within walking or trolley distance to several cool places to visit! Not kid friendly! Dirty pool and alcohol available in and out of your room.

It is located within walking distance of some of the best restaurants and clubs in San Diego.

Everyone that works here enjoys their job and makes you feel very welcome. Bentley is by far the best bellman ever.

We had the best stay at the Hard Rock San Diego! We had a beautiful room with a view of the ocean and the harbor but the air conditioning in the room didn't work very well.

The issues with pool area need to be resolved. Allowing non guests access created the pool being closed for the first two days of our trip.

Celebrated my 30th here Sept 11. I got a cabana & I was told while there's no DJ, there'd be music on Sunday. There was, but it was so low it was barely audible in the cabana. The speakers were either not on or not working. We asked for help but to no avail. Our servers, while the first girl was friendly, wasn't too consistent in service. The second one was just gone & had to be hunted almost every time. The same was said across the board by several of my guests. She also seemed either bored or ... Read more

We had to stay here as a part of a business trip for my husband. 2 yrs ago we stayed at the Omni which is right across the street. Comparing the two, since they are both in an excellent location, the Omni is WAY better suited for families (and anyone not looking to get drunk and have sex). As cool as the memorabilia was to look at, the room itself was less than impressive and overly pungent with the idea of partying, drinking and screwing! Alcohol and ads for it everywhere, and a snack tray full... Read more

Worse hotel I've stayed at. Upgraded to what I was told was a suite. Absolutely the poorest layout of a hotel I've ever seen. Bathroom was in the middle of room with no privacy. Toilet was on one side of room with a clouded door that was open at the top and bottom. If you sat on the most uncomfortable couch that was in the room you could see directly into the bathroom. Why have a door? The shower was across the room with the same situation. When you came out of shower you better be dressed as y... Read more

I've had the pleasure of being a guest at the Hard Rock Hotel San Diego a few times and I must say that the team there truly goes above and beyond to ensure your stay is memorable! I've gone many times with my boyfriend and my most recent visit was for a few of my friends birthdays and they all loved the rock star treatment they received! These were experiences you simply don't get from other standard hotels in San Diego. Almost like Las Vegas in San Diego! From the booking, to the check in, du... Read more

I got a Gold Suite to celebrate my birthday and had what was easily the best party and birthday night of my life thus far. The concierges, Robbie and Reggie, were both Grade A examples of what I hoped to see in Hard Rock customer service, and should probably get paid more everybody else. They went above and beyond my best expectations in making sure me and my girlfriend had a good night, and I can't say thank you enough.

Perfectly located with great restaurants in walking distance. Nice room, with excellent layout and amenities. But the walls are thin, pray for quiet neighbors. Good workout facility. Service at pool bar was nonexistent, with four staff members too busy chatting with each other to make the rounds...finally gave up and went elsewhere.

We have stayed at many hotels in the San Diego region and only 1 really stands out amongst the rest and that is the Hard Rock San Diego! Besides having some of the best suites in town they have an outstanding staff!

Overall, a nice property, located near Civic Center. Trolley, and Petco Stadium. Stayed on 12th floor facing convention center and found train stops/traffic noise to be a little loud, particularly in wee hours of the morning. Liked free Electra Bikes...we rode about 20 miles and would encourage guests to road test before going far; one of the bikes had very poor brakes. Rooms were very clean, contemporary, and beds were very comfortable.

After having car troubles on a road trip down to San Diego, we arrived to the hotel much later than anticipated. The Hard Rock was so kind and upgraded our room for free due to the adventure we experienced trying to get down there. We always have such a great stay at the HR Hotels, and this one was by far our favorite. Clean, friendly staff, and great location. Wish we had decided to stay longer than just one night!

Enjoy every day on this hotel. The service was good, location even better. Room was what i expected and very comfortable. Also enjoyed the party spirit from all the other people staying there. The two bars (207 and Float Bar) are great to hang around with friends or just to have a casual drink. Mary Janes food was also very good even if slightly expensive. I really enjoyed the experience and would definitively go back to this hotel if at any point I travel to San Diego again.

Hotel was amazing, really nice, clean and big rooms with good bathrooms. Hotel was in a good area right next to the Gaslamp district and baseball stadium. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We went with our friends and got given joinin rooms with a great view. Parking was $47 per day but it was valet parking and worth it as the staff would unload and load the car and take luggage to the room. Overall I would recommend this hotel highly if anyone is visiting San Diego.

This place is pretty great overall. We had a King Suite on the 9th floor. All the checkmarks tagged: clean, super spacious, comfy bed, dark, quiet, cool furniture, nice. No fridge is a miss as is a curtain separating the bed instead of a less translucent border like a sliding door. Bathroom is a cool idea, but the shower gets the floor wet and the toilet has no fan. Nothing broken, just the design off. Room service was good and timely, check in and out was easy, price was right. Good spot.
